Nadine Coyle welcomes baby girl – silliest celeb baby names to avoid!

by Lisa McGarry


Nadine Coyle has become a proud mum for the first time and she revealed last night that she’d give birth to a perfect baby girl.

How sweet!

CONGRATULATIONS! Kimberley Walsh is pregnant with boyfriend Justin Scott!

The tot was welcomed into the world by gushing honorary aunts Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts, who were thrilled to have the first Girls Aloud baby in existence and fans around the world sent their congratulations to the Northern Irish star with the hashtag #BabyAloud trending late into last night.

Nadine hasn’t revealed her daughter’s name yet – here’s hoping she doesn’t do a Peter Andre with it, because that would totally ruin any respect we have for the singer – so in the hope that she hasn’t made the decision yet, we’ve compiled a list of monikers she should definitely avoid.

Celebs have come up with some terribly silly names for their offspring over the years and it appears to be becoming an ever more prevalent trend. Here are what we consider to be some of the worst offences.

Penn Jillette moxie

Moxie Crimefighter – Daughter of Penn Jillette from magic duo Penn and Teller. He clearly has some unfulfilled superhero aspiration…

Jermajesty Jackson -Son of Jermaine Jackson. We understand the desire to have a child with something of your name. My mum wanted my sister named after my dad (Frances) and so called her Francine. But this is mental!

Bronx Mowgli – Son of Ashlee Simpson. We all love Disney movies, we love Jungle Book and we adore Baloo the bear but seriously? Naming your kid after them? I adore Aladdin but I’m not going to name my first born Jafar. I’m a big fan of The Lion King too but Hakuna Matata will not feature in my daughter’s moniker!

Moon Unit – Daughter of musician Frank Zappa. He didn’t even take drugs when he was a young rocker….really!

Denim – Son of singer Toni Braxton. She wanted to name her son after the village of “Denham” in Buckinghamshire, England. We have no idea why, since she is from Maryland and later moved to LA> We don’t even know if she visited Denham, but it doesn’t seem like a good enough reason to name your kid after trousers.

Slash London Cash

London and Cash – Slash’s sons.

Zuma Nesta Rock – Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s son.

Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches and Pixie – Bob Geldof and Paula Yates’s daughters.

Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily – Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence’s daughter.

Astala and Phaedra – Peaches Geldof’s sons (it clearly runs in the family).

Buddy Bear, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Daisy Boo and Poppy Honey – Jamie and Jools Oliver’s son and daughters.
