Why do rich people name their kids weird names?
First things first, is there any psychology behind weird celebrity baby names, or is it just a media grab?
Well, some people think giving a weird (we prefer “unique”) baby name sets their little one up for a life of fame and fortune.
Others might see it as an extension of the parents’ creativity and individuality.
Maybe it’s to instill a sense of privilege into their little one.
Who knows, but we are so here for it.
What is the most rare name?
- X Ӕ A-Xii ‒ Thank you Grimes and Elon Musk for sharing this showstopper of a celebrity baby name with us. Pronounced “X-Ash,” it does actually have a well-thought-out meaning behind it, though nothing says “rare baby name” more than having to find a special character to be able to type it out…

What are the weirdest celebrity baby names?
So let’s keep going with some fun.
Well, some people consider these the worst celebrity baby names, but we don’t like to sound negative.
After all, having a weird celebrity baby name is one way of standing out from the crowd!
What are the weirdest celebrity baby names? we hear you ask!
Well, it wouldn’t be right not to share these gems…
- Apple ‒ We all remember the surprise at Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s baby name announcement. After all, naming your baby after fruit isn’t super common. But it’s actually a pretty cute celebrity baby name.
- Audio Science ‒ Shannyn Sossaman and Dallas Clayton apparently chose this unique celebrity baby name because they wanted “a word, not a name”, so they read through the dictionary and decided on Audio Science ‒ Sci for short!
- Banks ‒ Simple, sweet, but kind of weird, Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma chose this unusual celebrity baby name for their daughter back in 2018.
- Blue Ivy ‒ How could we not include this beautiful (but, yes, kinda weird) celebrity baby name of Jay Z and Beyonce’s firstborn.
- Cashmere ‒ We know baby skin is soft, but this is next level. Cashmere is the daughter of Cam Newton and Kia Proctor.
- Cricket Pearl ‒ Okay, this one’s actually pretty cute! Marc Silverstein and Busy Philipps’ daughter, Cricket Pearl was named to be “the greatest, happiest kid on the block”.
- Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen ‒ Most of the weird celebrity baby names on our list have to be the monikers picked out by Frank and Adelaide Gail Zappa. First up is Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa, named Diva for “the loud quality of her voice”.
- Epik ‒ Son of Ray J and Princess Love (I mean, he was never going to be called Bob) is a little celebrity baby name with a big meaning.
- Exa Dark Sideræl ‒ That’s right, X Ӕ A-Xii has a baby sister! Elon Musk and Grimes welcomed Exa Dark Sideræl (nicknamed Y) back in March 2022.
- Gravity ‒ A celebrity baby name to keep you grounded (awful joke, sorry), this is the daughter of Lucky Blue Smith and Stormi Bree.
- Jermajesty ‒ A majestic name for someone born into one of the most well-known families in the world, Jermajesty is the son of Jermaine Jackson.
- Jupiter ‒ Daughter of Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French. It’s weird, but we like it.
- Kal-El ‒ Nicholas Cage and Alice Kim decided Superman’s birth name was a suitable choice for their son back in 2005.
- King Cairo ‒ Whoa this boy has got a BIG celebrity baby name. Blac Chyna and Tyga really wanted to bestow a sense of royalty on this little one.
- Kulture Kiari ‒ Not to be outdone, Cardi B and Offset chose an equally bizarre celebrity baby name for their daughter.
- Lazer Lee Louis Pentz ‒ Who loves lasers? DJs. So this was an obvious choice for Diplo and his ex-girlfriend Kathryn Lockhart.
- Moon Unit ‒ Another unusual name from rockstar Frank Zappa and his wife Adelaide, this one dates back to the ‘60s, so we can’t say strange celebrity baby names are a new phenomenon!
- Moxie CrimeFighter ‒ We can’t think of a more powerful name for a little girl than the celebrity baby name chosen by magician Penn Jillette.
- Pilot Inspektor ‒ Not a celebrity baby name everyone could pull off, this is the son of Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf.
- Poet ‒ Along with Jagger, Lyric, and Story, these are the weird and wonderful celebrity baby names of Soleil Moon Fry and Jason Goldberg’s kids.
- Powerful Queen ‒ Well this little lady (the daughter of Brittany Bell and Nick Cannon) has got epic shoes to fill.
- Psalm ‒ A word not regularly (like, ever) found on baby name lists, this is, of course, the name of Kim K and Kanye West’s youngest. Of course, North, Saint, and Chicago should get a mention, too.
- Sparrow James Midnight ‒ It’s cute, but it’s weird. Joel Madden and Nicole Ritchie chose this for their son.
- Wednesday ‒ Synonymous with the Addams Family character, this is the celebrity baby name of Rupert Grint and girlfriend Georgia Groome’s baby girl.
What is the coolest name for a baby?
While they’ve definitely got weird names down pat, celebrity baby names should also get some praise for raising the bar when it comes to the cool factor.
What’s also cool about these cool celebrity baby names is that you might know you got your inspiration from the bright lights of Hollywood, but they’re not so out-there that it’s obvious.
