As if celebs don't get enough unwanted attention, strange celeb baby names seem like they're here to stay.

From Michael Jackson's children Prince, Paris and Blanket to Kimye's born-into-celebrity daughter North West, unusual baby names and celebs go hand in hand.

Check out the photos below for some of the more unusual recent choices that kids of the rich and famous will be stuck with for the rest of their lives (or until they can legally change them at age 18):


Sage Moonblood

We can only assume that Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Moonblood, was given his name after Sly lost a substantial amount of blood in one of his movies.

Apple Actress

The name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin's daughter, Apple, was inspired by the Bible. As Paltrow said, "Apples are so sweet, and they're wholesome, and it's biblical — and I just thought it sounded so lovely and … clean!"

Bronx Mowgli

A common trend among celebs is to name their children after geographical places. Actress/singer Ashlee Simpson and her ex-husband, musician Pete Wentz, followed suit, naming their son Bronx Mowgli after the New York City borough. He's in good company; he's joined by Brooklyn, the son of David and Victoria Beckham.

Harper Seven

And let's not forget the Beckhams, who welcomed their newest addition, daughter Harper Seven, last July. The "Seven" part denotes Beckham's jersey number when he played for Manchester United and the English national team.

Bear Blu

Actress Alicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki gave birth to their son Bear in May 2011, topping many "worst celebrity baby name" lists for that year.


This is proof that someone can make a simple and comforting word a little disturbing. Blanket, the son of the late Michael Jackson, also goes by Prince Michael II.


Actor Nicolas Cage appealed to his love of superhero comic books when naming his son Kal-El, which is Superman's birth name.

Pilot Inspektor

Actor Jason Lee named his son, Pilot Inspektor, after a song by the band Grandaddy called "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot."


Saving the best (or at least the strangest) for last, Jermaine Jackson and wife Halima's son's name, Jermajesty, needs no explanation. Or many explanations … you decide.

North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their daughter North West, which as we all know is a direction.

Bodhi Ransom

Megan Fox And Brian Austin Green's second child was named "Bodhi," a Buddhist word for enlightened. Their first child has the perfectly normal name "Noah."

Memphis Eve

Bono and wife Alison Hewson were way ahead on this one: Daughter Memphis was born in 1991, long before giving kids strange names was a thing for celebrities.

Royal Reign

Lil' Kim named her daughter Royal Reign, we presume because Littler' Kim just didn't seem celebratory enough.

Blue Ivy

Jay Z and Beyonce's name choice for their daughter seems tame compared to some others. Poetic, even.
