These days, it can be difficult to come up with a unique and stylish name that doesn't sound too ridiculous or something straight out of the celebrity handbook for baby names. Yes, celebrities have a bit of a reputation for silly monikers, with the names seeming to get worse and worse as time goes on.
However, that does not mean that all celebrities are terrible at naming their kids. That's right, some celebrity baby names are actually pretty cool and have gone on to influence regular folk all over the world, maybe even you. Here are 10 unusual celebrity baby names (that you might actually like).
10 Blue Ivy
Nowadays you can get away with naming your kids whatever you want, as long as it isn't offensive or forbidden. Names inspired by colors have become very recent as of late, with Beyonce kicking off the trend with her daughter, Blue Ivy. The name, Blue, used to be more connected to boys and had a more masculine feel to it. However, these days the name is much more gender-neutral and steers away from the previous connotations of "down" "sad" or depressed. Beyonce has a knack for cool baby names with her other two babies called, Rumi and Sir.
Well, it is Beyonce, what else would we expect?
9 Montague George Hector
Let's face it, Geri Halliwell was everybody's favorite Spice Girl, with the band most certainly not as good as they were before she left. Yes, Geri Halliwell is probably the most famous redhead in the world and is now mostly known by her moniker, Ginger spice, than her actual name. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to see that Ginger spice has a knack for choosing nice-sounding names, especially when it comes to her son. Yes, Montague George Hector was actually named after her close friend and the legendary singer George Michael, who sadly passed away in 2016. Halliwell also has one other child named, Bluebell Madonna.
8 Luna Simone
Luna Simone Legend sounds like something out of Harry Potter, and is probably one of the coolest celebrity baby names on the block. However, let's face it, Legend is already a pretty good surname, so even if your first name was the most boring name in the world you would still sound like a superstar, just ask Dad, John Legend. Interestingly, Luna's mother, Chrissy Teigen recently revealed that she named her daughter Luna due to the blood moon in the sky when she was born, "It was a very beautiful night, really big, vivid red moon, and just gorgeous."
7 Silas Randall
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are probably one of the most attractive couples on the planet, with their son, Silas Randall equally as dashing. So what's with the name? Silas isn't as far out as most celebrity baby names but it is also extremely rare. In fact, Silas originates from the Latin meaning of "Man of the Forest" and is mentioned in the bible as a companion to Paul and Timothy. However, some people have suggested that the name is a nod to Timberlake's old work friend, Silas White, who worked with him at the start of his solo career and his now famed album, Justified.
6 Mason Dash
The Kardashians are renowned for taking it that step further when it comes to naming their children. However, Kourtney, the eldest and wisest of them all, kept it simple yet also kind of unique, with the smart and solid name, Mason Dash. Kourtney recently revealed that she had already chosen Mason's name before he was even born, "It was the only one that stuck with me. Right before he was born, I told my aunt we were thinking about going with that for a name." And the name Dash? Short for Kardashian of course, with Kourtney's father, Robert Kardashian using the shortened, Dash, as a nickname.
5 Dusty Rose
Dusty Rose Levine is the daughter of singer-songwriter and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Namibian Victoria's Secret model, Behati Prinsloo. Yes, Dusty Rose comes from good stock. Adam revealed that he and his wife originally found it very difficult to come up with the perfect name for little Dusty, stating, "We had a name that we won't mention on television. The name game is a tough game, Imagine you're writing the best song you've ever written in your life and you have to name it. It's really screwed up to actually have to put yourself through that."
4 Rocco Ritchie
Madonna is probably one of the most famous women in the whole wide world, plus, she has one of the most recognizable names in the universe. Therefore, it seems obvious that her kids would be named something just as powerful, with Rocco a great example. Yes, Rocco Ritchie, son of Madonna and her ex-husband and director, Guy Ritchie, is the second child of Madonna's six kid brood.
The name, Rocco, originally stems from the lands of Italy, a country that is also relevant to Madonna herself. That's right, Madonna's grandparents were Italian immigrants, hence Madonna's original surname, Ciccone.
3 Marlow Alice
Marlow Alice is the daughter of actress Amber Tamblyn and Arrested Development star, David Cross. Marlow originally originated in Britain, and was mostly used as a surname. However, although the name is still rather sparse, it is slowly on the rise and starting to get popular as a first name.. This is also due to the fact that the name is genderless, with genderless now becoming more and more common.
2 Sailor Gene
Sailor Gene is the son of actress Liv Tyler and football agent David Gardner, who also happens to be David Beckham's best friend. The two have yet to reveal why they named their son the unique sounding, Sailor, but the name is extremely rare and also somewhat rather unusual. The name, Sailor, first originated in Germany and originally meant, "Boat Man" a name that is still used today. However, the name is rarely used as a first name but is slowly starting to be used for both boys and girls. Yes, genderless names really are all the rage, something that seems set to continue.
1 Charlie Wolf
Zooey Deschanel already has an interesting and unique name, therefore, it comes as no surprise to see that she has also carried on the tradition of unusual names with her children. Yes, Deschanel's children, Charlie Wolf and Elsie Otter, also sport individual monikers with both names associated with animals. However, it seems Deschanel isn't the only one who is a fan of the Charlie Wolf name combination, with reality TV star, Lauren Conrad, strangely naming her son, Charlie Wolf, two years after the birth of Deschanel's Charlie Wolf, lost yet? Deschanel later commented on the coincidence, stating, "That was so weird, right? I don't think she knew it."
