17 weird baby names

We scoured the Internet to find some of the weirdest names parents have bestowed upon their children. Of course, most of them are celebrity baby names, but there have been some recent doozies in the media too. The names we found range from weirdly interesting to cruelly weird (we’re looking at you, Tabooger, alas).

Audio Science Son of actor/model/musician Shannyn Sossamon and children's book author/illustrator Dallas Clayton Apparently “Science” was going to be the first name, but it was too close to Simon (true story).

Bear Blu Son of actor Alicia Silverstone A cute name for a cub. Not the kind of name you want to grow into.

ESPN Montana (pronounced “Espin”) Son of Leann and Rusty Real, Mississippi, USA This would be the worst case scenario if you let dad choose the name.

Facebook Daughter of Jamal Abraham, Egypt Scratch that last one. This is the worst case scenario.

Fifi Trixibell Daughter of the late TV host/writer Paula Yates and singer/songwriter/author, Bob Geldof Fifi’s siblings were also blessed with perfect fairy poodle names: Peaches and Pixie.

Jermajesty Jermaine Jackson Son of singer Jermaine Jackson Oh no he didn’t! Oh. Yes he did.

Kal-El Son of actor Nicolas Cage Who knew Nicolas Cage was Superman’s number-one fan?


Like Daughter of Lior and Vardit Adler, Israel Like, Like should totes be friends with, like, Facebook. Like’s siblings got luckier with sweet names Pie and Dvash (the Hebrew name for honey).

Moon Unit Daughter of rocker Frank Zappa Beam me up! Beam me up! Beep beep moon unit. Beeeeeep. Scotty.

Moroccan & Monroe Cannon Son and daughter (twins) of singer Mariah Carey and actor/comedian Nick Cannon Just because they get the nicknames “Roc" and "Roe” doesn’t make it okay. Moroccan is named after the décor in one of his parents’ homes.

Moxie CrimeFighter Daughter of magician Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller) Another superhero fan? At least “CrimeFighter” makes “Moxie” look like an average name.

Pilot Inspektor Son of actor Jason Lee We’re still eagerly awaiting the bizarre name of their second child (born August 2008).


Seven Sirius Son of singers Erykah Badu and André Benjamin (André 3000 of Outkast) Hey, they stole George Costansa’s baby name!

Superman (aka 4Real) Son of Pat and Sheena Wheaton, New Zealand When the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs kiboshed their plan to name their baby 4Real, the Wheatons chose Superman. But they insist on calling him 4Real. For real!

Tabooger Son of actor/director Dan Cortese They couldn’t have picked a — booger — worse name. The poor child is probably getting picked on as you read this. OMG.

Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii Daughter of unnamed parents in New Zealand

A judge made Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii a ward of the court when she was 9 years old so they could change the name — the poor girl was so embarrassed, she told no one her name. Nothing funny about that.


Zuma Nesta Rock Son of singer Gwen Stefani and rocker Gavin Rossdale All I wanna do is zuma-zoom-zoom-zoom and a boom-boom! (We secretly love this name!)
