If I were a celebrity, I think I would feel the freedom to use out-there names, like Sea for a girl.Current Favorites:Elizabeth Lily nn EllieMary Emmeline nn MaisieSarah Evangeline nn Sadie

If I was a celebrity I would love to name my son Bukowski.

Ooh, fun question! I love so many names that I would use despite the fact they're rather unusual but for my worry that they will be perceived as pretentious, hipster, or trying too hard. That doesn't seem to be an issue for celebrities, however (Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman, anyone?). So if I was a celebrity, I would totally use...
I would still consider using most of these, honestly -- even in my thoroughly unglamorous real life.Simon, Eloise/Louise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Conrad, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Dashiell, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Archer, Gabriel, Persephone, Raphael, Dov
Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

I'm the opposite actually if I was famous I would be far to scared to use a name considered out-there than I would in my current (rather boring) life as let's face everytime a celeb names their kid something odd they tend to get made fun of. A lot. By complete strangers. That being even my more out there choices are actually pretty normal, at least not unheard of. that being said I wish I had the courage to name my one-day daugther my long-time name love CharityCurrent Favorites:

Probably the same names I would use under normal circumstances, however if I should be somewhat more flamboyant, I'd probably use one of my GP names like Hester, Cosima, Hugo or Akiva. Or actually I know what I would call a girl; Marie-Bonaparte. Now, I know Bonaparte is a last name but it sounds so beautiful and I think being a celebrity could make you get away with it, haha.
