Baby Names?

Here at the Pump Station thought we'd add a little light hearted fun to the end of your week. Of course as a Mom, the week never ends. Today we ran into a funny little article called "The 33 Worst Celebrity Baby Names." The names are as funny as the commentary provided by Catherine Connors

Of few of the highlights include:

Tu Morrow daughter of Rob Morrow (tv Numb3rs)You just know that this name came up during a drunken pre-conception conversation. The tragedy is, they never thought of a better one. We just hope the kid likes that song from Annie, because people will be serenading her with it forever.

Zuma Nesta Rock daughter of Gwen Stefani (band No Doubt)and Gavin Rossdale (band Bush)
Sure, "Zuma" is the name of a beach in a Malibu. That's lovely. But it's also a computer game. And the diminutive form of a term for a bad gastrointestinal condition. And, for anyone who remembers the '90s, a much-mocked malt beverage. No, wait: that was Zima.

Moxie CrimeFighter daughter of Penn Jillette (Penn and Teller)
Job descriptions just don't work as proper names. And what are odds that she'll actually grow up to be a crimefighter? Slim.

Pilot Inspektor son of Jason Lee (tv My Name Is Earl)
Speaking of job descriptions — Pilot Inspektor isn't even a real job. Neither is Pilot Inspector, for that matter. Plane Inspector is a real job, but that's like two steps above DMV worker in the glamour department

Kal-El of Nicolas Cage (Valley Girl, LEaving Los Vegas, The Sorcerer's Apprentice )
Do celebrities actually think their children have superpowers? Sometimes we wonder.
[The original story of Superman was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton]

Bogart Che Peyote son of David "Puck" Rainey (MTV's Real World: San Franciso)
Using the names of revolutionaries and drugs in your kid's name is one thing. Using the common term for slobbering all over that joint you won't share is quite another.

Fifi Trixibell, Peaches and Pixie daughters of Bob Geldof (band Boomtown Rats) and Paula Yates (tv The Big Breakfast in UK)
Didn't Paris Hilton use these names for her little dogs?

Audio Science son of Dallas Clayton and Shannyn Sossamon (tv Moonlight / How to Make It in America)
Sounds like it would have been a really cool class to take in college. As a name, though . .

Rebel, Racer and Rogue sons of Robert Rodriguez (movie:director/producer/ writer Dusk 'til Dawn, Sin Cit, Spy Kids)
Suggested names for Robert Rodriguez's next child: "Rapscallion.""Rabble-Rouser." "Racketteer." "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robot."
[The writer of the article missed his other son Rocket]

Camera daughter of Arthur Ashe (professional tennis player) his wife is a professional photographer
"Camera" is so generic. Why not "Nikon"? Or "Canon"?

Kyd son of David Duchovny (tv X-Files, Californication) and Tea Leoni (movie The Smell of Success)
Doesn't this just invite people to speculate that you, as parents, a) just didn't care enough to actually name your kid, and b) can't spell?

Please add comments about of some of your favorite names.

Do you have any friends with unique names?

Also we'd love to hear any stories about your little one's name and why you chose it.

I went to high school with Mystical Rain, Crystal Chandel Lear (not sure of the real spelling of either) and Merry Christmas. Her brother Jim lucked out.
