5 Stars Who’ve Defended Their Quirky Baby Names

If your a celebrity, you are almost expected to give your child the weirdest, most random, snowflake name on the universe. Just like hitting a random word generator or piecing words together to make new ones, these very inventive and er, creative, stars have all selected rather unusual monikers for their off-springs. Explaining and/or defending their weird name choice, these stars were not willing to accept any criticism regarding their brilliance when it comes to picking baby names. They obviously know best.

Fergie named her son Axl after a weird dream she had about Axl Rose. She explained her unusual choice: “I was in the audience at this festival. It was outdoors and it was all grimy and nobody knew who I was. On stage singing was Jim Morrison and then came Bob Marley and then Axl Rose. I was in heaven in this dream and I’m dancing and just getting into the music.” Then her still- in-utero baby woke her up by kicking her for the first time. It was like he was feeling the music with me. It was really beautiful and I woke Josh up and I said, ‘Honey, honey, honey, he kicked me. He finally kicked me.'”

Holly recently named her daughter Rainbow and doesn’t think she has scarred her for life: “There are a lot of smug haters out there who bag on my choice of a name, but I don’t care about what they think. She [school friend Rainbow] was a perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being ‘traumatized’ by having an unusual name.”
