Aren't You Glad Your Name Isn't Dweezil? (Updated)

Famous celebrities sure know how to concoct the most bizarre names for their offspring. I thought it would be quite entertaining to compile a list of outlandish monikers for you to gasp over.

Are you ready for this:

Memphis Eve – daughter of Bono (U2)
Fire – son of rock guitarist Steve Vai
Chastity Sun – daughter of Sonny & Cher
Chorde – child of Snoop Doggy Dog
Rumer Glenn – daughter of Demi Moore & Bruce Willis

Sailor Lee – daughter of Christie Brinkley & Peter Cook
Satchel – daughter of Mia Farrow & Woody Allen

Hopper Jack – son of Sean Penn & Robin Wright
Moxie Crimefighter – daughter of Penn Jilette & Emily Zolten
Giovanno Blondie – son of Vanna White

What the hell would posess a person to call their kid MOON UNIT??? Are they on drugs? Do they want their kid to end up on drugs? I mean, seriously


vina said... least, our FERNANDO FERNANDO, MANUEL QUIZON, JOSE RIZAL JONES and the like, are waaaay much better! :P

Brian said...

Glad I had normal parents. :)

Kirsten said...

I thought it was hard enough having to spell my name to EVERYONE I come across (because it's not Kristin, people!). I'm glad my first name is not that unusual.

My last name, on the other hand, gets slaughtered. I remember when I was in high school, a friend of mine introduced me to his grandfather and sister, and upon hearing my last name, his sister said, "Don't say that, that's mean!" Usually I just get a blank look when I tell people my last name, then they slaughter it ten different ways.

SQT said...

Kathy Griffin (the comedian) does a bit on celebrity kids names. She mentions Gwynneth Paltrow's kids, Apple and Moses, and Rachel Griffith's kid, Banjo. I love how she refers to the "fame bubble" that celebrities live in and somehow think it'll shelter their poor kids. She also predicts prolonged stays at Promises (a famous celebrity rehab) for these poorly named little ones. What are these people thinking?

Irene said...

Choochoo: The Zappa kids do have the most extraordinary names, don't they? I read somewhere that they all turned out pretty okay as adults despite their highly unusual names, and this was attributed to the fact they they enjoyed a good relationship with their parents. =)

Vina: Have you heard of Circumcision Cruz? Check out my post last April 26, 2006 and uncover more unusual Pinoy names! =)

Brian: Me too! :p

Kirsten: Okay. Now you've got me really curious. What is your last name???

Oh but I like the name Kirsten. It's nice. =)

SQT: Kathy Griffin is a hoot!

Cazzie!!! said...

Oh, I dunno, PUMA isn't such a bad name, and you could go round telling everyone that the brand of sports gear was named after you, LOL. NOT!!!
Recently, a kid was named Aussie because he was born on Australia Day..poor kid, "Hey there, my name is Aussie and I am an...Aussie!!"LOL

Shoshana said...

Good grief, but what were they thinking? Really!

Or it is because they're not thinking? I wonder if they agonized over the names, or did they just pick them out of blue because it sounds great at that time?

MYSTI said...

Laughs. What are the parents thinking. I have one for you. LOL My great grandmothers Name was June. Her last name was Bugg. LOL Not sure why her parents would name her JUNE Bugg. Lmao.

acwo said...

I like your blog very much
keep it up!

thethinker said...

Pilot Inspektor is and will probably always be my favorite. Because it's not like the a name like that is bad enough without being misspelled.

Pamela said...

there are various types of child abuse.. this is one.

ShadowFalcon said...

If you knew my real name you get why I sympathise with these fellow freaks...

vina said...

circumcision cruz? no waaaaay!!!!

tammara said...

Wow, there's a lot of crazy out there. And I hadn't realized the Zappas were so prolific.

Michael C said...

You mean to tell me that Diva Muffin hasn't taken her own life? She must be the strongest person ever!!

Scott from Oregon said...

That is quite the list. Makes me want to go have a few kids so I can try and top some of them.

KatieBelle said...

I don't understand this AT ALL! What's wrong with nice, simple names. Moon Unit?!?


Anonymous said...

Mel B (of Spice Girls fame) has a daughter named Phoenix Chi. Geri Halliwell's daughter is named Madonna Bluebell naman. Hay hay hay. Poor kids!

Tim Rice said...

I'm glad my parents gave me an ordinary name! :)

You gathered together quite an impressive list of strange names.

krystyna said...

Hi Irene!
Woow! Some name I can't even to say. Dandelion sounds nice. Interesting post.
Good luck to you!

RTTguapa said...

Tu Morrow takes the cake!

slaghammer said...

Maybe it’s like the Johnny Cash song “Boy Named Sue.” Both of my brothers were stuck with unflattering names which resulted in unnecessary childhood grief. I was lucky to have ended up with a perfectly invisible name.

Ex-Shammickite said...

hmmmm.... that's what happens when you smoke too much whacky tobaccy....

Homo Escapeons said...

If these kids grow up in Hollywood they will be fine and their names will be cool..if they live in the real world they will get taunted and ridiculed until they graduate and then they will either be cool or they will legally change their name.
My wife is a teacher and she sees people give their kids the same names for about a decade at a time.
I like different names if the kids grow into them..and sometimes a different sounding name pushes them to be a little more, why not?

Carmel said...

those sure are some weird names, thanks that was very entertaining, the stars sure do know how to pick some strange ones like Gwenyth Paltrow naming her daughter Apple!

krystyna said...

Hi Irene!
Wishing you wonderful, happy days!

wolfbaby said...

Wow those are some crazy funny names...

Smalltown RN said...

well I agree those are some very different names....but then we are guilty of how we chose to change the spelling on common names to make them different...for example....Candice or Candace....Brendan or Brendon....Mike or Myke....Tony or me that is silly as well...people want their kids names to be unique...I guess if they don't like it they can change it.....I worked with a lady who's name was Vicky Dorothy Killer...VD KIller....can you imagine! Or Rhea Sunshine.....ooops...

Very entertaining topic...thanks for doing all that work digging up those names....cheers to you

Rauf said...

Thank goodness I did not find TV BLUR, RADIO STATIC, MICROWAVE,
YESTER DAY, TU MORROW is a poor thing, she'll never get anything today, what about Tu Day ? MEE TU
I think I should block some names.
can't imagine how these poor kids are treated at school even though they are celeberities kids. Has any one grew up to sue their parents yet ?

Rauf said...

Hi Irene, hope you are doing fine

Rauf said...

just imagine the panic when Steve Vai's son is missing running out calling FIRE FIRE !!

or in the school when the teacher is mad at him. yells FIRE !
the entire class would run out of the room.

No one allow CAMERA in the toilet.
She'll be barred from entering into prohibited places.

IP FREELY will always be in the toilet.

And CASH would be repeatedly kidnapped, not by professional kidnappers but by the poor people.

Charley Pitchford said...

Now that made me laugh!!!

wolfbaby said...

Haven't seen anything from you in a bit and was just wonderin if you are doin ok.

Karen said...

I grew up with a boy whose given name was Anthony Anthony Anthony. When he went through confirmation, he chose "Edward" as his second middle name.
Hubby knew a girl in his school named Candace Cane. Yes, she went by Candy.
Dh is a pediatrician and see's all sorts of goofy names (although none as goofy as Moon Unit) He has a family who named all of their kids after Disney Characters.....Donald, Mickey, Minnie.....I just hope they never procreate enough to get to Goofy!

Great blog!

Faith said...

And I thought my name was bad!

Thank god dad talked mom out of calling me Olive. Even so, not half as bad as Moon Unit!

urban butterfly said...

krystyna said...

Hi Irene!
Just say hello, and how are you?
Have a great, peaceful time!

Malnurtured Snay said...

If I'm famous, I'm naming my kids John and Jane Smith.

homo escapeons said...

Happy Muthaz Day Irene!

krystyna said...

Happy Mother's Day!

krystyna said...

I miss you and your great writing!

houseband00 said...

Happy Mother's Day, Irene! =)

Shelley said...

Yee-Gads, it was hard enough having the name Shelley - with an extra E and NOT short for Michelle. My mother said she liked the way it looked in cursive, so she ran with it.

SQT said...

Irene, where arrrrrre you?

krystyna said...

Hi Irene!
how are you?
I miss you and your amazing posts!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Mimi Lenox said...

And we wonder why there are rehab houses. Oh dear.

It is up to them what they name their children. Let us remember Sasha was not her real name either.
