Twitty Milk Hoax! Real Name: Mars Merkaba
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.

Kal-el wouldn’t be bad if it was just plain Kalel or Khalil. I think Peanut’s the worst on the list. I was surprised/disappointed with Gwen and Gavin. After choosing a great name like Kingston, they really dropped the ball with Zuma.

Also, Moxie by itself isn’t too horrible. It reminds me of Roxie which I find pretty spunky.

Sure, Inspektor is really weird but what’s so bad about Pilot? Its fine for people to name their kids Archer, Hunter, and Sailor. I actually think it has kind of a nice sound. My daughters name is Violet and we call her Pilot as a silly nickname.

I think you’re all right: the Crimefighter, Inspektor, and hyphen tip these names over the edge from intriguing to insane.

Let’s hope Twitty Milk is a hoax.

I wanna shake Nick Cage, What was wrong with Clark, you twit? I do have to confess, Moxie has grown on me, I think it’s kind of cute in a bold, brash way but I cannot forgive crimefighter, makes her sound like a superhero drawn by a 5 year old. But Twitter Milk? That totally takes the cake as far as celebrity bad taste goes. I’m not a fan of hers at all.

But have you heard “Call Tyrone”? I love that song so much it makes me forgive her anything.

I have. Not my cup of tuna, exactly. I don’t deny she appeals to others, just not me.

Twitty Milk wouldn’t even be a good name for a hamster. Twitty Milk makes me think of breastfeeding. Of all the names listed above, the least offensive are Zuma and Pilot. But I think I would only use them for pets. Zuma would be great for a cat or a dog and Pilot would be a fine name for a dog like the dog in Jane Eyre. Inspektor is really lame. These celebrities need name consultants.

I love “Tyrone”. I always have to sing along whenever I hear it

According to Erykah’s twitter and Celebrity Baby Blog, the baby is named Mars Merkaba.
Who made up Twitty Milk?

I was surprised to see Diezel on this list. Seems like a regular, if somewhat spunky, name to me. I wouldn’t put it in this category. I vote for Dweezil (Zappa) instead.

Yes, he had the original crazy celebrity baby name.

Mars Merkaba? This is a girl? I’d expect Mars on a boy. *shrug* Beats Twitter Milk by a long shot. Yeah it’s weird, but this is from the lasy with kids named Seven & Puma already. I would have expected something a little less masculine, but it’s at least classic!

Mars is not so bad. I’d take a girl Mars over a boy Zuma Nesta anyday. And Mars is a lot more pleasant on the ears than Bronx.

Puma is not exactly a sweet girly girl name. I think Erykah likes power names.

I think this topic is a dead horse that keeps getting beaten over and over in every single media outlet. Do we really have to recap the entire list EVERY time a new kooky celebrity baby name surfaces? If you at all interested in this topic, you already know the whole story.
That said, I love your site 🙂
p.s. You missed the worst of all: Jermain Jackson’s son is named Jermajesty.

Mars is the Roman God of War. Kind of violent and millitant.
Merkaba is *very* interesting. “Merkaba, also spelled Merkabah, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. ” See this website for more info:

Hey, why not? It’s their baby!
I’d love it if my name was crazed.
My freako favourites (which may or may not have been on the list 😉 ) are:
India (Gotta love I’s :))
Phsyke (at least I think it’s spelled that way 😮 )
