As time goes on it would appear that baby names are becoming very weird and wonderful.
Actress Hilary Duff and her partner Matthew Koma picked a rather unusual name for their little girl in 2018. Duff explained that Baby Banks Violet was given her name as “The name that we first thought we were gonna use is going to be her middle name, so we’re like, ‘Let’s not stress over this anymore.'” Considering all of the wild baby names that are to come, this is at the tamer end of things.
Up next we have baby X Æ A-12, born to Elon Musk and his girlfriend Grimes. This name does remind me of some odd ikea furniture, however there is a meaning behind their bundle of joys name, and an even more odd way of pronouncing it! During a podcast hosted by Joe Rogan, Musk clarified that the name of their child is actually pronounced “X-Ash”, well when you put it like that it’s not so strange after all.
If superhero’s are your thing then you’ll love this next baby name. Nic Cage named his son Kal-El Coppola. How does this relate to superhero’s I hear you asking? Well, Kal-El is actually Superman’s Kryptonian name! Cage’s wife at the time, Alice Kim, said that the pair “wanted a unique name” and one that was “more unusual and beautiful” than Kyle. Rest assured, we think it’s more unusual than Kyle.
One of the more unusual names on our list was given by actor Jason Lee. He named his baby boy Pilot Inspektor. Yes, that’s correct, baby Pilot Inspektor. Not a typo. He explained in an interview that he came up with the name after hearing a song by the band Grandaddy. He went on to say “The opening track, ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot’ absolutely blew his mind”. It’s said that his wife thought up the name Pilot for their son.
Born to parents Amber Rose and Alexander Edwards, we have baby Slash Electric. The pair have offered no explanation behind the very unusual baby name however many have decided that it was given after the lead guitarist of the Guns ‘n’ Roses band.
On to a man with a real sense of humour! Actor Rob Marrow named his little girl the only name that seemed to fit. Baby Tu Marrow will grow up to either love or hate her humorous name, only time will tell.
Last but not least we have baby Moxie CrimeFighter. Personally it sounds like an awful superhero name! Baby Moxie CrimeFighter was born to parent Penn Jillette. Jillette when asked the meaning behind the odd baby name gave the simple explanation of It’s only the losers named Dave that think having an unusual name is bad, and who cares what they think. They’re named Dave”. We can only apologise to all the Dave’s out there!
To conclude, none of these children will ever find their names on a keyring.
