Bad Bad Baby Names 2

:: Jennifer notes that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Coldplay Martin named their newborn girl “Apple“, and Gina Davis’s new twin boys were christened Kian and Kaiis. Her response and mine to these developments are similar: WTF???

I had a lot of respect for Paltrow and Martin up to now, as they keep their relationship out of the public eye, making efforts never to walk down red carpets together, etc. But “Apple”? Good grief. From the Herald Sun (Melbourne Austr.):

The Eye’s Western District spy suggested Apple could get hitched to Christine Applegate’s brother and become Apple Applegate, then get rid of him and take up with Bill Gates’ son and she’d be Apple Applegate Gates.

What’s with the weird baby names? Yes, I ranted about this earlier, and will continue to rant about this stoopid practice. The Herald Sun, notes that these handles aren’t the first odd celebrity baby names:

A Knight’s Tale star Shannyn Sossamon has a son called Audio Science, while Almost Famous actor Jason Lee has a boy called Pilot Inspektor.

Audio Science? Pilot Inspektor? There really, really oughta be a law. Why, you ask? Check out Horrid Celebrity Baby Names.

:: It’s confirmed that Dennis Farina will be replacing Jerry Orbach on Law & Order. Orbach will be missed. I think it will take time to warm up to Farina.

    It was touching when “leonard brisco” was packing up the ol’ cop desk. I cant wait to see him on the new l&o though! And how about Lt. Dan as the new “grissom” on NY CSI? Awesome! Tivo time here I come!!!!

    okay, so what do you really think of “Tigana” and “Kasia”?

    Our philosophy was always to give one (more or less) unique name and one boring one, so child can choose later in life they can choose whether to go with the unique name and stand out, or go with the boring name and blend in.

    Ooh, ooh, ooh! Don’t forget Bono’s son Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q (after the dude from Star Trek??) and The Edge’s daughter Blue Angel (after a Roy Orbison song). Obviously, celebrity and common sense are inversely proportional when it comes to baby names. Look at Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s Rumor Scout, and Tallulah Belle! No kidding.

  5. Casey Says:

    I think Kian and Kaiis are wonderful names for boys OR for girls! They are unique, but not named after an object that already exists, like Apple: That is a bad name, NOT Kian and Kaiis!

  6. Michelle Says:

    Geena Davis chose the name Kian for her son not to be”weird” but because it is a Persian name and her husband is Persian. Kaiis is a more unusual one. If it is Persian I have never heard of it but I also don’t claim to be an expert in that matter. Xenophobic anyone?
