10 Weird & Hilarious Celebrity Baby Names
Celebrities can get away with just about anything, and often do. Even when it comes to naming their own children they take on society's norms and make a mockery out of them. Here are some of the most outlandish baby names in Hollywood.
Brainchild of: Arthur Ashe and Jeanne Moutoussamy
Names like "Camera" happen when parents name their kids after their passions. Setting a new trend for baby names, Mother and photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy, and wife of world-class tennis player Arthur Ashe, decided that "Camera" would perfectly fit her newborn daughter. Hopefully they won't name their next child 'Racquet', or, even worse, "Balls".
Brainchild of: Jason Lee (My Name Is Earl)
Jason Lee is undoubtedly a talented comedian. He holds the audience's attention with his wit, hilarious eloquence and commitment to the punchline. In fact, he's so committed that he brought his baby son into the act, displaying a tasteful and snappy sense of humour by naming his kid Pilot "Standard" Inspektor. No, that is not a spelling mistake. The name was inspired by the song "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot" by indie rock band Grandaddy.
Brainchild of: Bob Geldof and Paula Yates
Bob Geldof, a famous musician and his wife Paula Yates, a British TV presenter are indeed a creative duo. Their daughter Fifi's name is possibly the finest illustration of their creative prowess. Fifi was named after Bob's aunt, while Trixibelle was inspired by Paula, who apparently wanted a 'belle' in the family. Well, ring-a-ding-ding.
Brainchild of: Nicolas Cage
Apparently Nicolas Cage has a detrimental obsession with superheroes. His real name is Nicolas Coppola, which he changed to Nicolas Cage for his Hollywoord debut to avoid the appearance of nepotism. The name was inspired by Marvel superhero Luke Cage, but that's not where his strange obsession ends. His son also received the superhero treatment when Cage named him Kal-el, which is a made-up name based on Superman's birth name (before he arrived on Earth). Maybe Cage should also return to planet Earth and forget about superheroes for a while.
