About Those Celebrity Baby Names….

I almost forgot about the quiz in this post.  If I had a valuable cash prize I’d give it to my sister, who at least made an attempt.

Here are the answers:

1.  Sosie Ruth – daughter of Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick.  They’ve also got a son named Travis
2.  Piper Maru – daughter of Gillian Anderson.  Old “X-Files” geeks like myself know that this is the name of an episode of the show.
3.  Harlow – daughter of Nicole Richie & Joel Madden
4.  Apple & Moses – children of Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
5.  Wolfgang – son of Eddie Van Halen & Valerie Bertinelli
6.  Coco – daughter of David Arquette & Courtney Cox
7.  Scout, Rumer, & Tallulah – daughters of Bruce Willis & Demi Moore
8.  Hazel & Phineas – Two of Julia Roberts’ three children (there’s also a Henry)
9.  Moxie CrimeFighter – daughter of Penn Jillette.  He’s got a son named, Zolten, too.
10.  Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue & Rihannon – children of director Robert Rodriguez

If I’d been a celebrity I wouldn’t have wasted that naming capital.  I would have given my kids some celebrity-family-worthy names like Coffee and Western and Zither.  Or maybe not.  Perhaps not, if they still were still wearing “Autenrieth” as a last name.  There really are a few unusual names that I wanted to use, but when you’ve got a long, difficult last name you have to take a certain amount of pity on your children.  But so that you can mock me if you like, here are the top 5 unusual names I didn’t get to use (but still like).  And if you think they’re odd, at least I wouldn’t choose Zuma Nesta Rock (like Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale did) or Bronx Mowgli (like Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz).

1)  Flannery
2)  Ransom
3)  Harper
4)  Blythe
5)  Clive

    I think your quiz would have been more fun, if you had included Frank Zappa’s kids.
    Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet, and Diva Muffin

    Dweezil puts on a pretty good show, “Zappa Plays Zappa.” The Man goes every year and has taken me twice. Next year, we plan to take The Firstborn. It’s a good time.

    Thing 2 in my family was glad he wasn’t born a girl – he would have been Aja Lynn. Although I am not sure that name would have fit well for our towheaded progeny.
