Zzyzx, Nimrod, Moo, Lucifer, and Dzyre are just some of the unfortunate names given to babies. Most celebrities are part of a community called “creative artists”, treating their babies’ names like artworks. Sometimes, these masterpieces don’t sound good as they thought they would be. They give their babies names far cry from generic ones. These days, celebrities giving weird baby names is not surprising, but these are just really flying off the handle!
Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale
Even though Pamela Redmond Satran, a baby name expert and co-author of The Baby Name Bible complimented Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale for giving their baby, the name Zuma Nesta Rock, it doesn’t change the fact that he could get some bullying from his schoolmates for his weird name. You’re probably surprised as well that this 2008 baby is a boy and not a girl.
According to Gwen, Zuma is the name of the beach in Malibu, California, which is a known to be a famous surf spot. His middle name, Nesta means messenger, the same given name to Bob Marley. Like their oldest son, Kingston James McGregor, they also gave him a second middle name which is Rock.
Bronx Mowgli Wentz
Bronx Mowgli, the name given to the oldest child of Ashlee Simpson and her ex-husband, Pete Wentz was dissed as the Worst Celebrity Baby Name of 2008 by BabyNames.com. In the future, this kid will probably need therapy after knowing his name made it on the list. He already suffered enough after his parents broke up. He may be thinking right now that it’s his fault why they separated, imagining his mommy and daddy could still be together if he had a better name.
Cleary, the former couple didn’t realize choosing a name after a New York Suburb and a character from the Jungle Book is the perfect equation of having one of the worst baby names in Hollywood.
Yamma Noyola Brown
The late James Brown, a famous singer, and his second wife, Deidre Jenkins, named their daughter Yamma Noyola Brown. Both married in 1970 and separated in the year 1979. Her name just proved that the trend of celebrities giving weird names to their children goes even back to the early 1970s.
Even until now, the meaning behind her name is still not explained. Speculations say that the couple got the name while attending on a church service, where they use their mother tongue. Not only that, Yamma’s definition as a slang term for female sex organ received several likes on the urban dictionary.
His father didn’t just leave her an awful name but also terrifying memories of her dad repeatedly subjecting her mother to domestic abuse.
Luckily, Yamma didn’t inherit the baby name trend and gave her children normal names: Sydney and Carrington.
