Weird and wacky celebrity baby names
My Name is Earl actor, Jason Lee and his partner named their son, Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee. Apparently the name was inspired by a song called He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The Pilot by indie rock band Grandaddy.
Macy Gray divorced former husband, Tracy Hinds while she was pregnant with their third child. Perhaps tellingly, she named the baby Happy Hinds.
Were it not for her extensive and unusual middle names, Uma Thurman and partner Arpad Busson's daughter might not have made the cut: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. "Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father," said her PR.
We can only guess what the prince of pop was thinking when he named his second child, Prince Michael Jackson II.
Nicole Richie and husband, Joel Madden named their son Sparrow. "Sparrow was one we both liked. I liked the way it sounded with Harlow, and there’s the Captain Jack Sparrow connection," said Richie.
David Bowie and first wife, Mary Angela Bowie named their son Zowie Bowie. Turns out Zowie preferred the name Joey as a kid before changing his name entirely when he reached adulthood. His new name is the completely civilised Duncan Jones.
Nicholas Cage and Alice Kim set the bar high for their son, naming him Kal-El (Superman's birth name).
We've heard of children called Sage or Clementine, but Apple? Apparently so according Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. “It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me – you know, apples are so sweet and they're wholesome and it's biblical,” she said.
Singers Erykah Badu and Andre 3000 named their child Seven because “[it’s] a number and a force that cannot be divided". Her other children are called Puma and Mars.
