On hearing our children’s names you could be forgiven for thinking that we were reciting the list of residents from the local old people’s home.
Traditional names were our choice from the off and, once you start on a certain theme you need to continue it. By the time it came to choosing traditional names for our 13th we had such difficulty. We didn’t know what sex the baby would be and all our children have middle names so we had to come up with two names for each gender that we loved enough to name our unborn child.
The girl names were easy enough (and no, I will not reveal what they would have been had the baby been a girl), but choosing the boy names were tough! It seemed that any name we came up was either a diminutive of one we already had or we simply had used it as a middle name.
Once Tim was born the names we settled on seemed to ‘fit’ him perfectly.
They suited him, we loved them and soon enough we couldn’t even imagine him with any other name.
Yes, it’s definitely traditional names all the way for us.
But then, we’re not celebrities, are we?
Because if we were we might have to call him something like Cloudy Fungus-Spore or something equally as odd.
If we had (and if we were celebs), would it have made the results of this survey by Two Big Ladies who asked for people’s opinions on the weirdest baby names. With more than 2000 respondents who participated the results are finally revealed.
And here they are!
Pilot Inspektor – Jason Lee’s son
Zuma Nesta Rock – Gwen Stefani’s son
Blanket – Michael Jackson’s son
Sage Moonblood – Sylvester Stallone’s son
Bronx Mowgli – Ashlee Simpson’s son
Jermajesty – Jermaine Jackson’s son
North West – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter
Apple – Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter
Harper Seven – David and Victoria Beckham’s daughter
Kal-El – Nicolas Cage’s son
Royal Reign – Lil’ Kim’s daughter
Blue Ivy – Jay Z and Beyonce’s daughter
Which one would have got your vote, or is your weirdest name choice omitted from the list completely?
Are you a traditional names person or do you prefer something a little more unique?
