Worst Celebrity Baby Names

My friend Cafe Suzanne did a post asking moms what they thought of Ashlee Simpson's new baby's name -- Simpson and hubby Pete Wentz named their son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. So far (though to be fair, it's early in the game) moms aren't exactly loving it. But of course this is just the latest in a long line of, um, kind of "out there" celebrity baby names. Some other arguable offenders? Read on.

A friend sent me the link to this slide show on the Worst Celebrity Baby Names and of course I couldn't resist clicking through -- here are a few of just the boy-name highlights (which means I'm not even getting into Apple, Moxie CrimeFighter, and Moon Unit.)

Worst Celebrity Baby Names

  • Bronx Mowgli Wentz, being the new kid on the block, tops the list
  • Zuma Nesta Rock, son of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
  • Pilot Inspektor, son of Jason Lee
  • Jermajesty, son of Jermaine Jackson
  • Speck Wildhorse, son of John Mellencamp
  • Banjo, son of Rachel Griffiths

So, which boy name do you think is the worst?

I think Bronx is cute. The rest are ALL terrible, I voted for Jermajesty, though. That's just stupid.

I love Gwen Stefani and I love her first son's name but I think Zuma Nesta Rock is terrible! I kinda feel sorry for all the kids on the list though.

Those kids are all going to need years and years of therapy. Yiiikes.

What do you shorten Jermajesty to....Jerm?

Sounds "catchy" and I mean in a bad way like "contagious"!


Wow, Bronx sounds normal compared to the rest of these!!!

They are all so bad.  Who could pick just one.  LOL

I personally like Bronx, although it sounds stupid with Wentz.  Mowgli is just plain ugly! I think unusual names are cool-to a point-but Pilot Inspektor and Speck and Zuma are just weird.  I do like place names though.  London, Berkley, Isreal, Jordan, Brooklyn, etc.

Mowgli is classic, but I wouldn't inflict the name on a child.  Zuma makes me think of the game from Yahoo of the same name.  (You play a frog who spits balls.  Go fig.)  I voted for Jermagesty though.....it just sounds aweful.

babyb... babybump09

i couldn't name my baby any of those, but i voted for banjo

speck sounds like a dog
