Even More Unusual and Unique Baby Names Inspired by Celebrities!


If you missed our last article about unusual and unique celebrity baby names, fear not!  This is part 2, and it is full of equally strange monikers that celebrities have chosen to gift upon their children.

Not that there is anything all that unique about a celeb giving their kid these types of names, of course.  It kind of goes with the territory.


Rumi and Sir

Parents:  Jay-Z and Beyonce

Why the name?:  This set of twins were gifted with their names for these reasons, as explained by their father, Jay-Z, during an appearance on a Rap Radar podcast: “Sir was like, man, come out of the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like Sir.”

As for his daughter, Jay-Z stated, “Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter.”

Journey River

Parents:  Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox

Why the name?:  Although no reason was ever given for this name, we’re thinking they just wanted to make sure their third son’s name was extra unique.


Parents:  Preston J. Cook and Julia Stiles

Why the name?:  Strummer’s parents haven’t revealed the meaning behind the name, but it isn’t hard to think of a few ideas that might have spurred the idea!

Lula Rose Gardner

Parents:  Dave Gardner and Liv Tyler

Why the name?:  Lula means “lady princess”, which is absolutely adorable and perfectly suited for a daughter of Liv Tyler!

Onyx Solace Morissette-Treadway

Parents:  Mario “Souleye” Treadway and Alanis Morrisette

Why the name?:  This is another celeb couple that declined to give a reason behind their child’s name, but I’ve gotta say…  that poor kid is going to have fun learning how to spell it!  It also isn’t a big surprise that they’d name their child this way, considering their first child is named Ever Imre.

Amada Lee Gosling

Parents:  Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling

Why the name?:  Amada was named after her maternal great-grandmother, which means ‘beloved’ in Spanish.
