Category: craziest celebrity baby names
We all know that the names of celebrities and their babies inspire real life baby names, but which celebrities’ names are the most influential right now?
To find out, we went behind the scenes at nameberry and looked at which names enjoyed the biggest bumps up in traffic at the beginning of 2011 over the same period in 2010.
Of course, many of these celebrity names are getting lots of views because they’re in the news: Flynn and Marlowe are newborn starbabies, Rooney is the hot star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But others are there simply because they’ve captured the public interest at this moment.
Here, in order of popularity, are the hottest celebrity-inspired names right now.

Twitty Milk, the reported name of the new daughter of singer Erykah Badu and rapper Jay Electronica, was thankfully just a hoax. No one knows quite how the Twitty Milk rumor got started, except that the new mom Twittered her way through the baby’s birth. The real crazy celebrity baby name: Mars Merkaba.
1. MOXIE CRIMEFIGHTER — The daughter of magician Penn Jillette, whose assertive word name can be called unique in the truest sense of that term, is the bearer of what may still be the absolute craziest celebrity baby name.
5. MARS MERKABA – Okay, it’s better than Twitty Milk. But it’s still from Outer Space.
6. PEANUT — Soap star Ingo Rademacher’s son’s name might give any child an inferiority complex.
10. PUMA — We have to cite Erykah Badu for being a two-time offender, as she gave her daughter this feline and sneaker name. But Badu also has a wicked sense of humor, as anyone who’s ever heard her fabulous song “Call Tyrone” can attest.
