There are some absolutely insane names for children floating around out there. Since Jay-Z and Beyonce can name their baby Blue Ivy, it's now going to be socially acceptable to name children after colors, instead of banal items like fruits or technology. Purple Rain O'Hara has an edgy, hipster-y ring to it.
But after searching for celebrity baby names, Blue Ivy is not the weirdest baby name out there. Here are some of the ones that I think are just plain MEAN.
(I got these from infoplease.com)
Penn Jillette: Moxie Crimefighter. (daughter)
Shannyn Sossamon: Audio Science. (son)
Nicolas Cage: Kal-El. (son) (that is Superman's real name.)
Arthur Ashe: Camera. (daughter)
Rachel Griffiths: Banjo. (son)
John Cougar Mellencamp: Spec Wildhorse. (son)
Ving Rhames: Reignbeau. (daughter)
Robert Rodriguez: Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue (sons.)
Sylvester Stallone: Sage Moonblood (daughter.)
But really, the winner of the Crazy Names For Children award goes to Frank Zappa, for the sheer volume and wackiness displayed in one family. Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukah Rodan (sons), Moon Unit, Diva Muffin (daughters).
Diva Muffin Zappa. Now THAT's a name.
