Top ten weirdest baby names

Posted on: March 31, 2012


It seems like weird baby names are more and more common.  Here we list the top ten weirdest.  Apple seems pretty tame by comparison, eh?

10.  Moon Unit Zappa:  Moon Unit Zappa, daughter of the late musician Frank Zappa, is sort of a pioneer in odd celebrity baby names.  It’s not so much the Moon that gets us… after all, plenty of hippies gave their children names originating from nature.  It’s the “Unit” that bothers us.

9.  Sage Moonblood:  It’s a tribal-sounding name, but what tribe is Sly Stallone a member of?  On top of that, the word blood in a name conjurs up the grotesque.  And since when does a moon bleed?

8.  Espn:  Not one, not two, but four people have named their kids after the sports network.  One guy took it further by giving his son the middle name of Montana after, you guessed it, quarterback Joe Montana.  The child will turn out to be a dancer, hopefully.

7.  Moxie CrimeFighter:  We’ll be honest.  Moxie is kind of a cute name for a little girl.  But did Penn Jillette have to give her the middle name of CrimeFighter?  She’s not a comic book character.

6.  Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily:  At least singer Michael Hutchence’s daughter can go by the more traditional name of Lily.  Glass half full.

5.  Pilot InspektorMy Name Is Earl star Jason Lee is starting his child on a lifetime of poor spelling.  Tsk, tsk.

4.  Bronx Mowgli:  What else can we say but terrible, terrible, terrible all the way around.  What’s next for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz?  MullicaTownship Gunga Din?

3.  Audio Science:  Actress Shannyn Sossamon clearly named her child after a technical manual.

2.  Superman:  Pat and Sheena Wheaton of New Zealand wanted to name their child 4Real.  But that was crazy, and the government denied the couple’s request.  So they went with the much more practical name of Superman, setting the bar way too high for any kid.

1.  Adolf Hitler Campbell:  The name of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell hit the media late last year when his parents tried to order a cake with his name on it (the store refused).  His sisters also have awful names:  Joyce Lynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.  We don’t know what’s going to happen to poor Adolf when he gets older, but we can only hope he changes his name as soon as possible.

What are the strangest names you’ve heard of?
