Many celebrity couples love and know how to surprise their fans: extraordinary outfits, makeup and hairstyles, expensive cars and fancy diets. Even when it comes to choosing a name for a child, celebrities don’t want to follow past practices. We’re going to talk about the most unusual names of babies, many of which make people bother their heads about pronunciation and meaning…
Grimes and Elon Musk
We begin our review with the most interesting “star baby”, the son of a singer Grimes and a billionaire Elon Musk. They came up with a rather strange name for their first-born: X Æ A-12. At first, everyone thought that this was a joke and the Tesla CEO was just fooling around on Twitter, but after a while the mother of the child confirmed this fact. This is how the pair deciphered the meaning of X Æ A-12:
X is an unknown variable.
Æ – is thought to be AI in Elvish, which means artificial intelligence. Also, Æ means love in Elvish.
A-12 is the Lockheed A-12, a U.S.-made aerial spy. A-12 is commonly called the “Archangel.”
How to pronounce such an exotic name? There are several versions, for example: “Sasha the Archangel” or “X H Archangel Musk”, well, or simply “X H A Twelve.” Nobody still knows for sure. Tesla and SpaceX CEO spoke about the extraordinary name of his sixth child in the show of the American comedian Joe Rogan.
It should be noted that in the state of California, where the Canadian singer gave birth to a son from Elon Musk, the name X Æ A-12 cannot be entered into official documents. Therefore, creative parents still have to choose something less original. Maybe this name will be Archangel?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kim and Kanye named their youngest son, Psalm West, inspired by reading the Holy Scriptures. This is not surprising, because the singer and designer Kanye West is seriously passionate about religion.
All children of this couple have got exclusive names. Their daughter has the name of North to match the surname of her dad West , and the eldest son was named Saint. Parents considered the birth of a second child a miracle, since Kim’s pregnancy was very difficult. After a little while, a third child, a girl named Chicago, appeared in the family. She was born from a surrogate mother, whose name is unknown.
Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper
The supermodel and the Hollywood actor gave their little princess the French name Lea de Seine. What is notable that the actor’s father is Irish, his mother is Italian-American. And Irina is generally a Russian “soul”. At least, this French name sounds exquisite.
Beyonce and Jay Z
The couple took a fundamental approach to the name of the long-awaited daughter. They called baby Blue Ivy. The first part of the name is inspired by Rebecca Solnit’s novel “Field Guide to Getting Lost”. There is a passage about the meaning of dark blue and blue colours as giving beauty to the whole world. The girl received the second part of the name from the Roman numeral IV. It is of particular importance for her parents, as their wedding took place on April 4, and Jay Z’s birthday was on September 4.
The twins are called Rumi and Sir. The daughter was named in honor of Jalaluddin Rumi, the beloved poet of the couple, and the son was named Sir because he looks “businesslike and very important.”
The supermodel originally hailed from Russia has five kids: four sons and a daughter. A mother of many children named her daughter Neva, in honor of the main river of St. Petersburg. The exotic name got only the girl, while the boys have ordinary names: Lucas, Victor, Maxim and Roman.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
American singer, winner of numerous Grammy awards and her husband, rapper Swizz Beatz raise sons with unusual names. The boys’ names are Egypt Daoud Dean and Genesis Ali Dean.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
The actress and rocker named their daughter Apple. A Hollywood star associates this name with something nice and sweet. Their son is named after the biblical character Moses.
