There are some celebrities out there who seem to think that being in the public eye means that you have to think up some weirdly obscure baby name that no one is ever likely to use again. As egotistical as this might be – not to mention cruel to their kids – we can’t help but get a kick out of seeing how far they’ll go to be unique. Therefore, I hereby give you a list of the most ridiculous celebrity baby names so far…
1. Apple Martin
People have never ceased to be shocked as to why Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow decided to name their first-born child after a fruit. But, alas, it is true and apparently due to the fact they heard it on someone else and loved it. Not that interesting a back story really!

2. Bluebell Madonna Halliwell
Apparently inspired by the spring flowers that she admired during her pregnancy, Geri Halliwell decided to name her daughter Bluebell but we are not sure why she went with Madonna as a middle name…

3. Sparrow James Midnight Madden
The only part of this name that we actually get is James. What on earth were Nicole Richie and Joel Madden thinking? The first name Sparrow seems slightly on the effeminate side if you ask us (considering that he is a boy). And then they apparently chose Midnight because that was the time he was born. Ok, we get it, but it’s still weird.

4. North West
Don’t even get us started on this one. Apparently a normal name wasn’t good enough for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West so they had to go and choose one of the four directions that exist in the world just so people would know their daughter is extra-special.

5. Saint West
And what could be more special than North for your second child? Well, I’ll tell you what: self-proclaiming your son a ‘Saint’.

6. Moroccan Cannon
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s choice is rather an odd one considering they seem to be naming their child after a nationality. However, when you learn that the top floor of Mariah’s New York apartment is called the Moroccan Room you start to get a few more clues about their inspiration.

7. Sunday Rose Kidman Urban
Ok I can’t lie and say that this is as bad as some names on this list. Even though slightly on the odd side, apparently the inspiration for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s daughter’s name came from Kidman’s interest in artist muse Sunday Reed. The Rose part was then given as a nod to Urban’s late grandmother. Aww.

8. Kyd Miller Duchovny
Imagine being called a kid for the rest of your life. It would get annoying after a while, right? Apparently this is the case for David Duchovny and Téa Leoni’s son who prefers to go by his middle name, Miller. Well, can you blame him?

9. Ocean Whitaker
Ocean Whitaker’s name makes a lot more sense when his father Forest (of Last King of Scotland fame) explains that he wanted his son to be “expansive” (like an ocean) in the same way he tries to be “revitalizing and constantly growing” (like a forest). Right…

10. Pilot Inspektor Lee
And the number one prize for weird offspring names has to go to Jason Lee and his former flame, Beth Reisgraf. According to reports, Lee chose the name Pilot after he heard it in a song by the band Grandaddy. This is nowhere near a good enough excuse in our opinion. That poor kid!
