RZA, Spider, & More Unique Celebrity Baby Names

Chapel Lee

Celebrity baby names aren’t just fodder for inspiration: Whether they realize it or not, we are forever pitting celebs against each other in an imaginary competition of who can come up with the most unusual baby name. The contenders are many and impressive. Though many famous parents who have welcomed babies in the last couple of years have been relatively tame in their name choices, we have to give thanks for the likes of Usain Bolt, for twin-baby names of Saint and Thunder; Ashley Tisdale and husband Christopher French, who welcomed their daughter, Jupiter Iris; and Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli, for their twist on two classics for their baby girl, George Elizabeth.

Thunder, George, and Jupiter now join a generation that already includes Powerful Queen, Lyra Antarctica, Buddy Dessert, X Æ A-12, and Raddix Madden. And all of them are part of a pack that stretches back to the likes of Moon Unit Zappa (the daughter of the late musician Frank Zappa), showing us just how ahead of the curve Hollywood kids have been for generations now.

Choosing a name for your child can be a thrill, especially if you get creative with it (although we do advise steering clear of naming your babies Covid and Corona. Yikes). But it can also be overwhelming — the name will follow your little for the rest of their life. Plus, when it comes to names, everyone seems to have an opinion.

The good news? Baby names are constantly changing and evolving, which means you have a lot of options out there. And luckily for us regular folks, celebs tend to be major pioneers in choosing truly out-there baby names people love to discuss — plus unusual names that are just super-cool and avant-garde.

And hey, there’s no shame in getting some baby-name inspo from Celebland and stashing it away for your own kids (whether they’re currently gestating or just imagined in your distant future). If you started considering fruit names after Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple or ran through all the colors of the rainbow when Beyoncé named her daughter Blue, we won’t judge.

For every beyond-weird celebrity baby name out there, there’s another one that’s just wacky and cool and beautiful enough, we might even pick it for our own kids. You decide which is which ahead.

Aire Webster

On Jan 21, Kylie Jenner revealed to the world in a series of Instagram photos that she and her ex Travis Scott have named their son Aire Webster — previously having named him Wolf, but then deciding it just didn’t fit. We not only love the uniqueness, but also the natural element tie it has with his older sister Stormi.

Malibu Barbie

YouTuber and singer Trisha Paytas gave birth to her first child on September 14, 2022, announcing it with a sweet series of photos on Instagram. But it may be her choice of baby names that catches the eye more than the actual baby: Malibu Barbie Paytas-Hacmon. But hey, Barbiecore baby names are definitely trending, so maybe she’s just way ahead of the curve!

Wilde Wolf

In 2022, rapper Eve and Maximillion Cooper welcomed their first child together. “Wilde Wolf Fife Alexander Somers Cooper,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the boy. “Words can’t describe this feeling.”

Stormi Webster (& the Baby Formerly Known asWolf)

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott share two children: Daughter Stormi, who was born in 2018, and a son (formerly known as Wolf), who was born in 2022.

Jenner once explained the origins of her daughter’s name: “I looked up names and I saw Storm and I really like that, but i wanted her to have an ‘ie’ at the end of her name like me. Kylie and Stormie. So, it was that at first and when I was pregnant I used to call her Stormi when I would talk to her in my belly and it just always felt right. I had one more name that I liked. I had two names that I honestly liked better than Stormi, but when I had her I just felt like she chose her own name and I just couldn’t imagine any other name other than Stormi.”

No word yet on why the couple chose the name Wolf for their latest addition, but soon after his birth, they announced that his name wasn’t Wolf any more. Still no word on what it is — but we’re betting it’s unique!

“Ok ok we had a baby,” the Saturday Night Live star wrote on Instagram after the birth. “His name is Cosmo. We love him very much. Privacy would be greatly appreciated. Jost later shared that his mother was first confused by the moniker. “I don’t know if she thought it was kind of like a hippie thing?” he said during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Over time, however, Jost’s mom learned to love it. We do too!

Johansson also shares 7-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac.

Eureka Muse Knox-Robinson

In late 2021, Amanda Knox and boyfriend Christopher Robinson welcomed their first child, a daughter named Eureka Muse. Knox, who in 2015 was acquitted for the murder of her British roomate Meredith Kercher in Italy, announced the birth on Instagram. “I know that I cannot 100% protect my daughter from the kind of treatment I’ve suffered, but I’m doing the best I can,” she wrote. “Which is why this will be the only picture of her I will ever share on social media.” Knox gave thanks to her supporters on she and Robinson’s “journey to parenthood” adding, “Thank you for believing in us.”

George Elizabeth

The Handmaid’s Tale star Samira Wiley and her wife, Orange Is the New Black writer-producer Lauren Morelli, announced the birth of their daughter George Elizabeth on Mother’s Day 2021, though she was actually born on April 11. Though no one would call either first name very original, this is the first time we’ve seen them combined — and for a girl. George does follow other celebrity daughters with traditional “boy” names, such as Jessica Simpson’s daughter Maxwell and Blake Lively’s daughter James.

North, Saint, Chicago, & PsalmWest

Estranged couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian gave their children wonderfully unique names: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

“When North was born, I know that North West is a very unique name,” Kardashian told LIVE with Kelly and Ryan. “Well, all my kids’ names are very unique, but I didn’t name her for maybe three or four days. I looked at her and I said a prayer with her. I was like, ‘I pray to God you can handle your name. I hope you are this name that I’m choosing.’ I mean, it was really emotional for me.”

She added, “you can’t go higher than North.”

Meanwhile, Kardashian said of her second born, “My son Saint, he is a saint. It’s like he literally has become his name. He is an angel.” For her youngest children, the couple chose the name Chicago for West’s hometown and in Hebrew, Psalm means “Song”

Olive & FrankieKopelman

Divorced couple Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman decided on their first daughter’s name Olive after reading in a book that she was the size of an olive when the actress was three months pregnant, she told Ellen DeGeneres.

Barrymore also revealed to DeGeneres why they chose the name Frankie. “It was just a name that came to my husband and I a few months before she was born, and we were sort of like, ‘I think this is it,’” she said. “And then we gave ourselves room to change our mind, but we never did. My mother-in-law’s maiden name is Franco and I love her so much that it reminds me of her as well.”

Less than two years later, they annouced the birth of their second child together, a daughter who they named Exa Dark Sideræl.

Door!’” he said. “She [was] like, ‘Shut up!’ Then I was like, ‘I’ve got a really dumb idea. What about Wyatt?’ She goes, ‘That’s it.’”

The actors named their second baby Dimitri Portwood, who was born in 2016. Dimitri is a Russian baby boy name from the Greek Demetrius (the god of farming and fertility) and an obvious nod to Kunis’ roots — she was born in Ukraine.

Their son’s middle name, Portwood, appears to honor Kutcher’s stepfather, Mark Portwood.

Their daughter Inez was born in 2016, and their daughter Betty in 2019.

“My dad’s name was Ernest Brown Jr. but he was known as Ernie Lively,” Lively said in a press release, per Us Weekly. “He gave up his last name when he married my mom, [Elaine Lively], and any success he, or I, have experienced has been in a name that isn’t his. So when I was working hard to build this company, I wanted any success to be in a name that was meaningful to him. Betty was his mom and his sister’s name. Also, Ernie would not be the best name for a mixer.”
