Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple and their son Moses. For a couple with such conservative names, they have managed to pick some unusual ones!

When Gwyneth was asked why she named her daughter Apple, she responded, “Right, well, um, basically it was because when we were first pregnant, her daddy said, if it’s, basically one day he just said if it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple. And I just, it sounded so sweet, and it conjures such a lovely picture for me, you know apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical and it’s just, they’re so, and I just thought it sounded so lovely and …”

So… Chris’ idea?

Rapper Lil’ Kim has a daughter named Royal Reign.

Ciara’s baby boy is named Future Zahir after his dad. So it is really the grandparents that have to answer for this one.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their daughter North. Yep, North West… but then they went and named their second child Saint West. Funnily enough, the name Saint West would be illegal in New Zealand since titles, such as King or Doctor or Lord aren’t allowed as first names here.

Alicia Silverstone’s little boy is named Bear Blu Jarecki. Bear seems to be a popular name for celebrities to name their kids – Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis has a son named Everly Bear, Kate Winslet named her youngest, a boy with Ned Rocknroll, Bear Blaze.

Bono’s band mate The Edge also went out on a limb, naming his daughter Blue Angel…

The child of David Duchovny and Tea Leoni is named ‘Kyd’. Maybe they wanted to feel smart when saying “Hey, kid!” on the playground…

Gerard Way named his daughter Bandit Lee Way. We are surprised his wife, Lyn-Z, gave him the Lee Way to do that…

Jermajesty really is the crown jewel of creative names. Jermaine Jackson looks pretty pleased with his choices, standing between sons Jermajesty and Jaafar Jackson.

Robert Rodriguez, close friend and fellow director of Quentin Tarantino, seems to be trying to do to the letter R what the Kardashians have done to K – his kids are named Rebel Rodriguez, Racer Rodríguez, Rocket Valentin Rodriguez, Rhiannon Elizabeth Rodriguez, Rogue Rodriguez.

My question is, what if Rebel wants to become a police officer?

There is a reason Rob Morrow, who you might recognise from the TV show Numb3rs, looks happier than his daughter, standing beside him. Because he named her Tu. Last name Morrow. Tu Morrow. If my name was a dad joke I wouldn’t look so happy either!

Steven Spielberg’s daughters name is Destry, which, if you think about it isn’t that weird, but he definitely made it up…

Sage Stallone? fine. Sage Moonblood Stallone? Well I guess his dad is Rambo, so it had to have ‘blood’ in there somewhere…
