7 Weird Celebrity Baby Names And Their Origins

Obviously, this article was inspired by Jay-Z and Beyonce’s latest work, Blue Ivy. It’s not a new album or some sort of designer fragrance, it’s a baby. If you didn’t already know this, then you don’t hang around with enough teenagers. Celebrities have a pretty solid habit of giving their children really stupid names. It’s almost like a rite of passage or something. It’s as though these people know that their family legacy will rise above any mocking a poor kid named “Blue Ivy” might be subject to. It’s not completely fair to judge a parent’s name choice until you get the full back story. With that in mind, here are a handful of other celebrity baby names and their origins, (which I may or may not have completely made up.)

Tu Simone Ayer Morrow

She’s the daughter of Rob Morrow and Debbon Ayer, two established Hollywood types. Skip the the middle parts and extra surname and you’ve got “Tu Morrow,” as in “If my parents were a little more famous and a little less weird, I wouldn’t be getting made fun of at school tomorrow.”

Bogart Che Peyote

This is the son of “The Real World” star known as Puck. His actual name is David, but if he’s too cool to use is own real name, he’s certainly not going to name his boy “Steve” or “Tom.” He’s going to name him Bogart Che Peyote. A name that pays homage to Puck’s favorite actor, revolutionary, and drug.

Racer, Rocket, Rebel, Rogue and Rhiannon Rodriguez

These are the names of the children of filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. He pulled them from a book of dog names and a Fleetwood Mac album.

Camera Ashe

She’s the daughter of tennis player Arthur Ashe, who looks like a Simpsons character. The rumor that I made up has it, that Arthur named his daughter camera on a dare. The night before Camera was born, Arthur was drinking with a friend who said “You should name your daughter ‘Camera’.”

Arthur replied “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard!”

“If you don’t name your daughter ‘Camera’, then you’re a total pussy!” said his friend. Moments later Arthur called his wife to tell her, and the rest is history.

Kal-El Cage

Nic Cage decided to make his unborn son the victim of his comic book obsession by naming him “Kal-El,” which is, as everyone knows, Superman’s birth name.

Jermajesty Jackson

Leave it up to one of the Jackson’s to go full crazy on the kid naming. Most kid’s names have some sort of symbolic meaning. This is just really crappy word play. Jermaine Jackson is the man responsible for naming his kid “Jermajesty.” Luckily, when you’re a famous Jackson, nobody gives a sh*t what your first name is.

Pirate Davis

He’s the son of Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and his name is Pirate. Having a name like “Pirate” is like walking around in half a halloween costume every day of your life.
