Celebrity baby's names make me angry.

I think some of the names celebrities are saddling their kids with these days should count as a form of child abuse TBH.

Pilot Inspektor
Kal-El
Bear Blu
Sparrow James Midnight
Morrocan Scott
Zuma Nesta Rock
Bronx Mowgli
Harper Seven
All of Jamie Oliver's kids.

And so on...

My heart goes out to all of you, and your bad parents should be ashamed of themselves .

Re: Celebrity baby's names make me angry.

It's not only celebrities that do it. I went to school with a girl called Squirrel

I think her mum did lots of acid in the 60's....

Well any parent who would name their kid something like that (especially if the child would go to public schools) is purposefully inviting teasing and bullying (which is basically no different to them doing it themselves) and abusing their child. To be honest they should be forced to name their child something more appropriate or have the child taken from them and given a more appropriate name anyway.

I don't know, once we got over the initial hilarity when we found out her name for the first time it just became normal. Still, glad it wasn't me right enough!

Well clearly you're not a bully or potential employer. I highly doubt any remotely respectable place would allow an employee to have 'Squirrel' on a nametag.

Re: Celebrity baby's names make me angry.

I saw an interview with Peaches Geldof where she felt bad for celeb kids because people used to always take the piss out of her name. In comparison to some her's isn't even that bad.

Re: Celebrity baby's names make me angry.

that's what happens when you live in your bubble and lose all perspective. i'm sure their names is not the only thing which is strange in these children's lives.

Don't see what's wrong with those, they're kind of cool.

There's a lot of kids with "ethnic" names given to them by immigrant parents these days. Do you think those names count as child abuse if the kids get teased for them?

I kind of like Sparrow. But names like Bronx and Morrocan are just not pretty names to begin with, putting all of the teasing stuff aside.
