Many people wonder why celebrities tend to choose odd baby names for their children. Parents usually choose a name that has sentimental meaning or cultural significance to them. Some names that were once considered weird are now made common because of Hollywood celebrities. Naming your baby after a city or fruit could be cool for some but can also be tacky.
If you plan to choose a unique name for your baby, proceed carefully and wisely. A person’s name can have great impact on his life. Unusual celebrity baby names can be original and interesting but can also be weird and unpronounceable.
