That’s probably a name of a celebrity kid somewhere…deux…trois…quatre…wouldn’t that make it a lot easier. I believe the indoor grill man went with naming his children one through five. In fact, he may just win the award for the most ridiculous children’s names…check this out.
Wikipedia (sidenote-cofounder of Wikipedia from good ol’ Huntsville, AL – see, we do more than NASA stuff around here!) states: Foreman has 11 children, and each of his five sons is named George: George Jr., George III, George IV, George V, and George VI. His four younger sons are distinguished from one another by the nicknames “Monk,” “Big Wheel,” “Red,” and “Little Joey.” Also of issue in his marriage are two daughters named Natalia and Leola. He also has three daughters from a separate relationship: Michi, Freeda, and Georgetta. He also adopted a daughter, Isabella Brandie Lilja (Foreman), in 2009.
Come on George, really? You’re not that awesome that you need six kids named after you (counting Georgetta). In fact, no one is…
As many of you commented, on the blog or in person, celebrity freaky baby names could go on and on, but yesterday morning while I was writing the first blog in a series of crazy baby names, my 12 yr old…correction…GROUNDED 12 yr old, came to me with fifteen minutes until his bus came to let me know he had to get on the computer to do his homework. Yep, he had a three day weekend, but did he plan ahead and do his homework at any point over those three days? Nope. And therefore, little man will have PLEN-TY of time to do his homework this week when he is NOT watching TV. J Ok, sorry…had to put my Mom hat on for just a minute. Maybe I should have named him “procrastinator”…
Here are some more notable crazy names:
Alicia Keys named her son Egypt. Why? I read somewhere that Ms. Keys did a concert in Egypt a few years and loved it. Let that child be thankful she didn’t go to Ethiopia.
Forest Whitaker named his daughter Ocean. I can hear the salty fish jokes already. Poor girl.
Jamie Oliver and his wife are in the works to ruin four children. Of course, the wife’s name is Jools, so did they have much choice? Their children are Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Blossom Rainbow, and the latest is Buddy Bear. Wow. Aren’t these care bears…no? Since Jamie’s a chef, I guess the kids can count themselves lucky they weren’t named garlic, coriander, marjoram, and parsley.
Leave it to Ginger Spice to name her daughter Bluebell Madonna. Why do I picture ice cream when I hear that name? And just to compete with fellow spice girls, didn’t Victoria Beckham just name her daughter Seven? So confusing, since she’s the fourth child for the couple and the only girl. Those spice girls are just wild and crazy, huh?
And last, but certainly not least…Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence have a mixed family but somehow that doesn’t seem to matter. The weird names cover both sides and these kids will get along fine considering misery loves company. This family has Fifi Trixbelle, Peaches Honeyblossom, Little Pixie, and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily….why couldn’t they just get dogs if they wanted a pet?
Let’s just hope Fifi Trixbelle doesn’t marry Buddy Bear…Fifi Bear is just OVER THE TOP!
