Let’s delve into the list of the most rare baby names, shall we?
1. North West
Kim Kardashian West and Kayne West named their daughter North West not because of an accident, but through mutual agreement. It was, at first a rumor, which turned out to be a reality when Kim and Kayne decided that this name suited their daughter well.
2. Rocket Zot
This is the name of the son of Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle Worthington. They chose this name just because it sounded well. The name Rocket was random, but Zot was the name of the child’s maternal grandfather.
3. Ode Mountain
Jena Malone named her son Ode Mountain in 2016. The full name is, however, Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone. The inspiration for the name is not yet as such revealed yet.
4. Audio Science
What could have possibly hit Shannyn Sossamon when she named her son Audio Science? It could be what she majored in at her college, who knows?
Apple is a brand name, it is a fruit name, and now, it is the name of a girl. Apple Blyth Alison Martin is the full name of the daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex-hubby Chris Martin. Well, we can’t say anything about the inspiration for the name so far.
6. Zowie Bowie
Pronouncing this name is almost as if you’re pulling someone from their cheeks. It was given by David Bowie and his wife Mary Barnett to their son. However, he didn’t seem to like it that much. So, later he changed his name to Duncan.
Yes, Coco is an animated movie, but back in 2004, actors Courtney Cox and David Arquette named their daughter Coco Riley. The two names seem to perfectly match each other and create a symphony.
The mighty Mount Everest could have been the inspiration for George Lucas and Mellody Hobson when they named their daughter Everest Hobson. Unusual name for a girl, no?
9. Rainbow Aurora
The Girls Next Door star Holly Madison named her daughter Rainbow Aurora after a girl she was jealous at school. Although a lot of haters spewed their venom, the actor stood her ground and never changed her decisions.
10. Elsie Otter
Zooey Deschanel had her inspiration from the name “sea otter”. Only she could choose such an offbeat name for her child. Her husband, Jacob Pechenik was totally fine with it, though.
11. Rocket Ayer
Pharrell Williams and his wife named their son Rocket Ayer. Talking about the inspiration of the name, Pharrell said that he wanted to name his son just the way Indians name their children, behind some force or animal. Also, he said that all his favorite musicians inspired him, including Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Herbie Hancock.
Why in the world would a couple name their newborn Stormy? Well, we know. They would because this is the name that gives power. Jenna Elfman did know this and this is why she named her newborn “Stormy”. Psst. You can also name your son Stormy if he unleashes too much of a storm if you know what we mean.
13. Blue Ivy
When Beyonce and Jay-Z wanted something unique for their baby doll, they came up with Blue Ivy. As much as the name is grand and alluring, so are the parents of this child. We believe only they could come up with a name so peaceful yet apocalyptic – you know like the name of a Greek God ready to smash all the evil. Of course, it’s not a Greek God’s name, just a speculation.
Cricket is the name of a game, of an insect, and now, of the name of Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein’s daughter. The name’s a bit quirky for a girl, but the couple has managed to eliminate that by adding “Pearl” to the name. Thus, naming their newborn as Cricket Pearl. When it comes to naming children, celebs have definitely taken an edge. They seem to not follow the usual set up or norm. Instead, they simply follow their inspiration and what their hearts say. But more than this, they name their children as such just to blend luck, goodwill, and the fates of their child. Would you choose one of the above-mentioned name to your child?
