Is this the craziest celebrity baby name ever?

In a world where celebrity baby names such as ‘North West’ and ‘Kal-El’ exist, it’s perhaps not such a surprise to learn that a star has chosen an unusual moniker for their bundle of joy.

However, we have to say that Hollywood actress Amber Tamblyn’s choice of name for her first child really takes the cake.

The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants recently announced that she and her husband David Cross had welcomed their first child together, a baby girl – and the name (which does appear to be a tongue-in-cheek fake referencing other wacky celebrity baby names) is definitely unique.

“David and I are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr,” she wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag #TheFutureIsFemale.

Amber, 33, and David, 52, wed in a private ceremony in 2012. While the couple have mostly kept their relationship under wraps, the actress did open up about her impending journey to motherhood in an essay for Glamour published last year.

“I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into,” she wrote.

“How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language with which conversations are spoken in?”

Amber is also not the only one from the Sisterhood cast to welcome a tiny tot of their own. Blake Lively is now a proud mum of two, while Alexis Bledel welcomed her first child (a baby boy) last year.
