The names celebrities bestow on their poor unsuspecting children could have severe consequences – it may or may not scar the child for life, but it most certain elicits a reaction from the hoi polloi. The public either hates the name or they love it and promptly name their own kid the same. Witness how the popularity of the names Aryan and Suhana skyrocketed after Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan gave these names to their kids. However where some star kids have nice names, others are plain weird! Here’s that weird list:
Jason Lee and Pilot Inspektor
When you name your child Pilot Inspektor (with a K), the only thing you think is what-the…!? And wait there’s more: the benighted child’s is actually called Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf-Lee.
Bono and Memphis Eve
Realistically what did we expect from the lead singer of U2? The guy chooses to go by the name Bono! Any poor child of his was bound to be saddled with something this pretentious.
The Edge & Blue Angel
Clearly it is a U2 thing – have strange name, will inflict the same on offspring. So U2’s other front man who rejoices in the name The Edge, named his daughter Blue Angel.
Michael Jackson and Blanket
The king of pop (and arguably the king of weird as well) named his second son Blanket. He called his first son Prince Michael Jackson by the way. Clearly by the time Blanket arrived, he was completely out of ideas.
Frank Zappa and 4 & 5 Moon Unit, Diva Thin Muffin and Dweezil
I’m sorry did I say MJ is the king of weird? I stand corrected! Ladies and Gents the true pretender to that title is Frank Zappa. Clearly he meant to home school his kids. No parent, however sadistic and cruel, could send his kids to school with those names.
Penn Jillette & Moxie Crimefighter
Either the guy is trying to live up to his rep as a funny guy or he’s simply taking revenge for what his parents did to him with a name like Penn Jillette.
Shannyn Sossamon & Audio Science
This pair finds place on the list not because Shannyn Sossamon is much of a celebrity (most people have never heard of her) but because of the strange and unusual cruelty displayed by her in naming her own offspring Audio Science.
