Nowadays a celebrity can’t seem to pick a normal name for their baby. Their offspring are often stars before they are even born. Jessica Simpson has recently given birth to her daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson. The name Maxwell is usually associated with being a boy’s name. Beyonce also recently gave birth to a baby girl called Blue Ivy. Seems that celebrities can’t just call their children Lucy or Ben. Instead they have to name them something that will make them stand out.
Do these celebrities not think of the consequences of naming their children these wacky names? They have to live with them as they grow up, for example Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter is called Apple. Imagine when she grows up and has to apply for a job or gets married and says her name is Apple. It’s just cruel naming your child something stupid like that. There aren’t even any ways of shortening many of these names.
Bob Geldof has spoken this week about his grandson being given the name Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof. He claims that the name is weird and that he has begged Peaches and her fiancee Thomas Cohen to change it. This coming from the same man whose three daughters are named Fifi Trixibelle (29), Peaches Honeyblossom (23) and Little Pixie (21). Even his adopted daughter has an unusual name – Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof (Yates’ daughter with Michael Hutchence). Maybe he should look at what he named his kids before passing judgment on his daughter
