If you are a celebrity (or just feel like one) you might want to know what your peers are naming their kids. Yes, we all know about Apple, but what about pilot Inspektor or simply Jack?
Personally, I think one of the great things about parenthood is that you usually get naming rights. It is entirely in your power and responsibility to identify your child for life. It is such a big decision. For us, we agonized over names, even testing some out at the hospital to see if they fit our baby.
Did we want a name that no one else had or a name that has stood the test of time? Celebrities must face the same questions, and some of them do better than others at naming their children (in my opinion).
Are celebrities more likely to name their children with unique or unusual names or more classic names? The answer may surprise you.
Take a look at some of the more recent baby names that have been chosen by some of our favorite celebrities. Some of these names are from BabyZone.com and Cracked.com.
