Celebrity baby names: wacky or wonderful?


22nd January 2018

WELCOME to the world little Chicago West.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and her rapper husband Kanye West welcomed their third child last week – and gave her rather an unusual name!

The couple revealed they were calling the tot Chicago West, in reference to the American city where Kanye grew up.

Kim retweeted a post that read: “To everyone who thinks it’s literally pronounced as CHI. No. It’s ‘Shy’.”

The little girl was brought into the world via a surrogate, which is when a woman gives birth to another person’s baby. Kim had a lot of complications in her first two pregnancies and was advised against giving birth again.

Can we talk about celebrity baby names for a minute?

This is not the first time Kim and Kanye have chosen an unusual baby name. They called their first daughter, North West and their son, Saint West.

Similarly, lots of celebrities like to pick names which no one else has heard of. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Buddy Bear – son of Jamie and Jules Oliver
  • Princess Tiaamii – daughter of Katie Price and Peter Andre
  • Apple – daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
  • Prince Michael II, nicknamed Blanket – son of Michael Jackson
  • Blue Ivy – daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z
  • Huckleberry – son of Bear and Shara Grylls

Some can be kind of funny or nice, but lots of the time they are awful and I feel sorry for the kids. Especially with Kanye and Kim. I'm pretty sure one of their children is called 'East' so that people can laugh at how they're called 'East West' for a second and then leave them with their awful name.

Wacky because who would call someone Buddy Bear but Blue Ivy is a nice name.

I wouldn’t say there wonderful, but there definitely quite cool and unique!??

macaroon8 · 4 years ago

I think that the names are up to the parents - celebrities.

sophette · 4 years ago

In my opinion, some are better than others!

claudine · 4 years ago

I would say that wacky names are ruining that baby's future, but then they were born a celebrity so it won't really change their reputation!

tillyjane · 4 years ago

I chose wacky because who would call their babies a name like apple,buddy bear,blue ivy and huckleberry

I think that children should not be called names like these because it could lead to the child being bullied.

shaan11 · 4 years ago

It is up to the parents what they call their children and quite frankly they are wonderful names even if a bit wacky and no matter what their name is you shouldn't judge just by name.

zaaz · 4 years ago

I voted wacky because as shpee said, I feel sorry for the kids because other children will make fun of them.

izzy_xxxxx · 4 years ago

Why? Its all just a publicity stunt that shows no respect for the kids themselves

hfrules · 4 years ago

Really bad, nd out of date... who calls their child that???
Make sense people.

bigfatcat · 4 years ago

Blue Ivy
Peace out

maryam05 · 4 years ago

Totes wacky.

guppy2 · 4 years ago

I think blue ivy is adorbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cooledie · 4 years ago

some names can be nice for celebrity's kids, but some can be teased about their name and that's not nice at all

sparkle10 · 4 years ago

Everyone has the right to call their child what they want even if the names are a bit wacky.

izzywiz · 4 years ago

Some seem really odd and it's not one you normally think of and their kids might get picked on when they go to school

izzyddogg · 4 years ago

They are just plain wacky

frederico · 4 years ago

I can't choose. Wacky and wonderful!

frederico · 4 years ago

I do feel sorry for North West though!

popchip4 · 4 years ago

they are just STRANGE

woof04 · 4 years ago

I think it's wrong to give your kids weird names that no-one has ever heard of. These kids will get mocked throughout their whole lives. I like unusual names, but there is a difference between unique names and the sort of names that celebrities give their kids.

popcorn987 · 4 years ago

Some r cute but some are plain weird. North,sout,East and west ?? Really ?? But I think blue ivy is nice ?

emperor · 4 years ago

I would hate to be called Buddy, North, Saint, East, Blue, Princess or whatever wacky names these celebrities call their children. THINK ABOUT THEIR FUTURE! Yes, baby Princess may be cute, but imagine when they grow up. Mr Princess Jones. Mrs Buddy Smith. Just imagine if you'd like to be called Flower or North or Fairydust? No, I certainly wouldn’t and I don’t think you would either. If you WOULD, put #wonderful in your comment. If you WOULDN’T, put #wacky instead.


pheebz10 · 4 years ago

I feel really sorry for the children because it is basically for a laugh because they could have chosen a name that is not something like Prince because I think the celebrities meant it as a joke but somebody birth name is not a joke Also they might get teased at school for having a name like Prince because the celebrities decided to make their name a laughing matter

kestj003.3 · 4 years ago

wacky is shorter, cooler and more of a name than wonderful

anjakf · 4 years ago

I feel sorry for the children who have wacky names but if their parents like it then it is ok?

rachel360 · 4 years ago

So wacky! I mean who would call their kid buddy bear? Not me!

pancake135 · 4 years ago

I feel sorry for any kid who has a name like rainbow bear etc. At school they will get bullied and they may not get a job in heir older life.

FNFan · 4 years ago

Why would you want to bring your child into the world with a horrible name which shouldn't really exist. A couple in France called their child Nutella. Who would want to be called that for as long as they shall live

kinsparke9 · 4 years ago

I feel sorry for the kids. When they go to school it could get a bit embarrassing.

ponymadkid · 4 years ago

I don't think the names are nice as i definitely feel sorry for the kids. How awful would it be to be bullied because of your name? I prefer traditional names because lots of kids have them, it would make you feel part of the group instead of the odd one out. Some of the names are positively ridiculous (e.g."Buddy Bear") but it is the celebrities choice

epicvader · 4 years ago

Just because they are celebs, it doesn't mean that their children should have stupid names. I feel really sorry for the children, as their names single out them as different from everyone else.

ravenclaw · 4 years ago

Why do celebs give their kids such weird names? It’s like me giving a dog the name cat .

amberspell · 4 years ago

I put wonderful but some names are a bit much... Such as "Princess Tiaamii"!!!!! LOL!!!!! :) But "Blue Ivy" is a really nice name, and "Apple" is just adorable!!!!! I like old-fashioned names as well though.

ozlover · 4 years ago

WOWWWW!!!!!! I didn't know that there was so many people calling there babies wacky names!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a bit weird but funny at the same time

kittykat13 · 4 years ago

I believe their wonderful as long as it isn’t going to cause the child bullying I think parents should be allowed to name their child what they want.

bellacoona · 4 years ago

I think it can sometimes be ok if it isn't really elaborate but it can be mean.

shreddeddo · 4 years ago

WONDERFUL! they would get teased about their name if it was wacky

bubble33 · 4 years ago

definitley wacky!

holholster · 4 years ago

Personally, I think celebrity babies have crazy names, and, just because their parents may be rich and famous, it doesn't mean they can think of silly names for their children. The celebrity parents have got to remember that the youngsters will be stuck with that name for the rest of their lives.

sootysweep · 4 years ago

Some can be OK. But some are just weird. It could be horrible for the children, some get dreadfully bullied because of their names.

piggy2018 · 4 years ago

definitely wacky but blue ivy is a nice name
