The inspiration for this article is that, as I write this, Katie Price has just announced that she is calling her baby daughter "Bunny". BUNNY. She said she had to top "Princess Tiaamii", and I think she may just have. Let's take a look at some of the other famous faces who decided that Oliver, Jack, Olivia and Emily were just too popular.
Apple is the daughter of Gwyneth and Chris (pre-conscious-uncoupling). At the time, there was shock everywhere at the naming after a fruit. (Kids nowadays would feel shock at naming a child after an electronics technology company.) It's a very sweet name, but Apple Martin does sound quite similar to Apple Martini...
Destiny Hope Cyrus
AKA Miley Cyrus. Derived from her nickname Smiley, dropping the S. Her parents believed she would go on to accomplish great things, which she did. Then she came in naked on a wrecking ball and twerked on Robin Thicke.
Nicolas Cage thinks his son is superman. N'awwww. But it's true that Clark would have been a little more subtle.
Most people might find this hilarious, but I'm secretly blown away. It's genius!! What. An. Original. (Jermajesty's dad is Jermaine Jackson).
Pilot Inspektor Lee
Jason Lee, of My Name Is Earl (remember that?), named his child "Pilot". He heard a song called "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot" and coined the coolest name ever.
Harper Seven Beckham
The youngest Beckham makes the shortlist because of her unusual name, but I personally like it. I grew up watching Wizards of Waverly Place, so Harper isn't thaaat weird really.
Petal Blossom Rainbow Oliver
Jamie and Jools Oliver are definitely creative people. Considering Petal's sisters are Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo, we find this slightly less weird.
Child of Téa Leoni (not Tea) and David Duchovny. Pronounced "kid" but spelt "kyd". "Hey Kyd!" Love it.
And let's not forget Ms Katie Price herself. Princess Tiaamii, Junior, Harvey and Bunny.
N.B. Harvey's not weird.
