Best and Worst Celebrity Names 2011

Hubby found this Yahoo article and had me come read it because we are both obsessed with names. Yes, even hubby. The thought of having more kids is an interesting prospect because there really aren't any names in the world better than Ocean and Ever. We have a few up our sleeves, but we will never tell! (evil laugh happening) We get made fun of a lot for these names, but we aren't offended.

Names are tough for me because I work with 80 kids a day. That means that names get stuck to certain types of kids and I can't picture them any other way. I hate a lot of names. It is awful when people tell me what they are going to name their child because 9 times out of 10 I do not like it and I happen to be an absolutely terrible liar. I don't ever ask anyone what names they've picked because I know my first thought will be "ick" or something like that. I have never told anyone that I hate their child's name to their face of course, it's tough for me though.

Without further ado, here are the best and worst names of celebrity babies (who are awesome namers) . . . .


Amaya (Mariska Haritgay)
- Meh, it's okay
Joni (Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band)- I hate it
Monroe (Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon)
- I love it!
Penelope Athena (Tina Fey)
- Meh, it's okay
Willow Sage (Pink) - I love it!

Milo (Alyssa Milano)
- Meh, it's okay
Skyler (Rachel Zoe) - I hate it
Marcelo (Ali Landry) - Meh, it's okay
Flynn (Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom) - I love it!
Weston (Jenna Fischer) - I hate it



Mosely (Peyton Manning) - I love it!
Mirabella Bunny (Bryan Adams)
- This is a cross between okay and love, I love Bunny for a middle name!
Genesis (Viola Davis) - I hate it, with emphasis!
Arlo (Johnny Knoxville) - I would like this for a boy
Indiana (Ethan Hawke) - I hate it


Kroy Jagger (Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak) - I hate it
Spike (Mike Myers) - I hate it
Bear Blu (Alicia Silverstone) - I hate it
Kannon (Kevin James) - I love it!
Diesel (Jennie Finch) - Meh, it's okay. I like it with the sibling, whose name is Ace
Moroccan Scott (Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon) - I hate it

So there you have it. Thoughts on these picks?

We went to the Nascar Hall of Fame in North Carolina. Hubby and Osh loved it. Ever and I thought it was totally lame.

I know, don't even say it. My little baby boy looks like a boy, a real boy. Tear.

  1. Since hubby is a teacher we have the same problem as you where he associates names with bad kids. It's usually boys so we have never ever agreed about a boys name. It's gonna be tough if we have another and it's a boy.

    I like Flynn and Monroe, too.

  2. Kannon? I don't know. I think that name will be hard for the kid when he gets older.

    I met a 6 month old named Cosmo two days ago. I love it. What about you?

  3. I think most of these names are terrible! Here's my take:


    Amaya (Mariska Haritgay)- Very nice
    Joni (Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band)- Meh
    Monroe (Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon) - This is terrible.
    Penelope Athena (Tina Fey) - Gorgeous! Best name on this list. She also has an Alice!
    Willow Sage (Pink) - I do have a soft spot for Willow.

    Milo (Alyssa Milano) - Not bad
    Skyler (Rachel Zoe) - I know too many girls for this to be good on a boy
    Marcelo (Ali Landry) - Very nice
    Flynn (Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom) - I don't care for it, but i won't complain.
    Weston (Jenna Fischer) - Meh


    Mosely (Peyton Manning) - Terrible
    Mirabella Bunny (Bryan Adams) - Mirabella is lovely. Bunny is stripperish.
    Genesis (Viola Davis) - Nononononono
    Arlo (Johnny Knoxville) - No
    Indiana (Ethan Hawke) - Bad.

    Kroy Jagger (Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak) - Terrible. Terrible!
    Spike (Mike Myers) - Did he get a dog?
    Bear Blu (Alicia Silverstone) - no
    Kannon (Kevin James) - No. It's a misspelled weapon.
    Diesel (Jennie Finch) - A type of gas? Hm. No.
    Moroccan Scott (Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon) - Why not just Scott? Moroccan is bad.

    Obviously our tastes vary greatly. But that's okay. To each his own. I like old lady/man names (My son is Mac). I also swoon over Walter and Estelle. :)

    happy SITS
