I read an article in our newspaper about new first names. So I thought, if ever you become a mom or a grandma in the near future and you have to choose a name for the baby to come, here are some nice examples of first names given by famous parents ! I don't know all these "famous people" but I start to doubt about their mental health !

Imagine you have to call your daughter or son from the 3rd floor or from the other side of the street :

Harper Seven (Beckham) H aaaaaa rrrr ppp eer S e v e n ! that sounds quiet ridiculous. And if these poor children have to learn to write their name at school .... Bluebell Madonna Halliwell ?? That's a long word to write for a little one.

Bluebell Madonna. (Ex Spice Girl Geri Halliwell)

Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Petal Blossom et Buddy Bear. (Jamie Oliver)

Bear Blu (Alicia Silverstone) will certainly be called blue bear

Mirabella Bunny… Brian Adams

Kal-El (Nicolas Cage)

Kingston James McGregor, and Zuma Nesta Rock. (Gavin Rosdale)

Dweezil, Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen, Moon Unit and Ahmet Emuukha Rodan (Frank Zappa)

Rumer Glenn, Tallulah Belle et Scout LaRue. (Bruce Willis, I thought he was a little more "normal")

Bronx Mowgli (Ashley Simpson)

Apple and Moses. (Gwyneth Paltrow)

Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee)

Fifi Trixi Belle, Blossom Honey Peaches, Little Pixie (Bob Geldof)

But maybe you like these names, so you have some choice here.

LOL! I remember Dweezil and the Spice Girl's Bluebell Madonna, but the others are new to me. I feel sorry for the children saddled with names like these. But perhaps it's accepted as normal in the entertainment world. Hope you're having a good weekend. Jo

From time to time we get these stories... The other day I read that a Chinese guy named his son @. Yes, just @.
About the long names, I have the impression that it used to be a tradition for European nobles (or at least Portuguese) to accumulate the family names. At least I remember that when I was a pupil and studied history, the names of Portuguese royal family members were incredibly long, often around 20 names, the whole genealogy was there...
First ruler of Empire of Brazil: Pedro de Alcântara Francisco António João Carlos Xavier de Paula Miguel Rafael Joaquim José Gonzaga Pascoal Cipriano Serafim de Bragança e Bourbon.
Or Pedro I, for short. :)
God bless you!

I love the name of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' daughter: Suri. It always reminds me of Sushi.
