Picking a name for your baby is a task that takes time and you think of every aspect: to suit his personality, to sound ok matched with the last name and to have some uniqueness to it. Well, sometimes celebs go all out and pick a name that is so rare or unexpected we all go wild. We did some cherry picking and rounded up the following unique celebrity baby names.
Cricket Pearl and Birdie Leigh
Parents: Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein
Two very fun and interesting enough names for celebrity kids. Defending their names, she said: “It’s weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be in therapy for LOTS of reasons, I’m sure.”
Parents: Stormi Bree and Lucky Blue Smith
A couple that has now parted ways, with Lucky Blue Smith naming his other two kids: Slim Easy and Rumble Honey. Lucky, who was raised as a Mormon, has three sisters with names just as unique: Daisy Clementine, Pyper America, and Starlie Cheyenne.
Lyra Antarctica and Jupiter
Parents: Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran
Ed mentioned they went for Antarctica as she was conceived on the way to the continent. As for Jupiter, this seems to be quite a popular choice lately, with the word meaning “brave and bold”.
X Æ A-12 and Exa Dark Sideræl Musk
Parents: Grimes and Elon Musk
You wouldn’t expect something different from them, right? And if you have no idea how to pronounce X Æ A-12, Google is your friend.
Parents: Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki
They couldn’t decide between these two names so they decided to keep them both.
Parents: Susan Downey and Robert Downey, Jr.,

Quite a mouthful, but each name has a wonderful story behind it.
Autumn, Sonnet, and True

Keeping things simple with just one word.

Geri said she went with Bluebell because during the last stage of her pregnancy she saw bluebells everywhere.

A name that is sure to make an impression, you tend to remember if you’ve met someone named Pilot Inspektor.

Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rhiannon and Rogue
Parents: Elizabeth Avellán and Robert Rodriguez
Strong and powerful names, each with its own story.
Parents: Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard
Two names chosen based on their meaning: Sylvester (Latin) translates to “wild” while Apollo was the Greek and Roman god of music, poetry, sunlight.
Apple and Moses
Parents: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
It was in the early time of celebrity, when celebrities didn’t tend to go for truly unique names so these two caused quite the ruckus.
Parents: Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
The root of the anime means just that, “root”, so we’re guessing they wanted to keep her grounded, which is hard to do in Hollyweird.
Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah Belle
Parents: Demi Moore and Bruce Willis
This duo sure knows how to stand out in the crowd, they went for some really memorable names.
Parents: Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost

They both loved the name Elsie, they both love otters, kaboom, Elsie Otter.
Parents: Kate Capshaw and Steven Spielberg
Leave it to Spielberg to go for a name that literally means “war horse”.
Parents: Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll
Get this: “Bear’s second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. The house burned down and we survived. So we wanted something of the fire, and so Blaze was the name that we came up with.” Yep.
Parents: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
Initially they went with Wolf but almost one year after giving birth Kylie announced the final name of her son, Aire.
While some people tend to exaggerate and always play the “they will be mocked for this name”, recent celeb history taught us that most of these kids end up loving having a more unique name. If not, they can always change it. It’s not like celebrities are afraid of changing their name. So, while these might be considered weird or/and unique celebrity names when put next to names like Rose or Albert, the fact of the matter is they’re memorable and that’s what everyone wants to remember their name.
