uh, what did you say your name was again?

a serious epidemic is occuring right now, in the US. children are getting tagged with the worst possible names out there...why not just turn to different languages, or combine parent names? why would you take obscure nouns and turn them into your new baby's reality? maybe it's the curse of fame and wealth, where you don't care what people say, but these children sure will once school starts. watchout...

Kim Basinger & Alec Baldwin: Baby daughter Ireland
one of them is Irish, at least, so it makes sense...

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin: Baby daughter Apple and son Moses
I know someone named Moses - and he isn't half bad. Apple on the other hand, well - is she taking a page out of Eve's book, aka the Bible?

Matt & Annette Lauer: Baby boy Thijs
I keep wanting to spellcheck their son's name to 'this'. how do you even say it??

Courteney Cox & David Arquette: Baby daughter Coco
hello people, it's not that bad - for the Arquettes! it makes me think of Chanel.

Alice Kim & Nicolas Cage: Baby son Kal-el Coppola
why hyphenate a name in these days and times of getting picked out of an airport line based on your name? them being fans of Francis Ford, is cool though.

Julia Roberts & Danny Moder: Twins Phinnaeus Walter and Hazel Patricia
I keep wanting to call him 'Pinhead'. I do hope Hazel doesn't have blue eyes and just confuse the sh*t out of everyone.

Shannyn Sossaman & Dallas Clayton: Baby son Audio Science
wanna help me out on this one? it would be cool if they were actually musicians or scientists. but...no.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes: Baby daughter Suri
I am over them. Katie was just shot with purple hands from a Scientologist ritual. the kid has very little hope ahead of her.

Toni Braxton & Keri Lewis: Baby son Diezel Ky
it's Toni Braxton people...

Heidi Klum & Seal: Baby son Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo
4 names for one child...with a father who only has one name. hmmm...

Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck: Baby daughter Violet
it's actually not that bad. but those ears....yeesh.

Geri Halliwell & Sacha Gervasi: Baby daughter Bluebell Madonna
I guess Geri wanted to be Madonna, so why not name her baby after the legend.

Jools Norton & Jamie Oliver: Baby daughter Daisy Boo
her mama's name is Jools, helllooooo....

Summer Phoenix & Casey Affleck: Baby son Indiana August
anytime you have one of the Phoenix's involved, you know it's got to be spicy.

Drea de Matteo and Shooter Jennings: Baby daughter Alabama Gypsy Rose
do you see it? do you see the father's name? at least they named her after a character in one of my fave movies - True Romance.

Beth Riesgraf & Jason Lee: Baby son Pilot Inspektor
I am so offended. Inspector Gadget would be ashamed.

Paula Yates & Bob Geldof: Baby daughters Fifi-Trixibelle, Peaches, Little Trixie, and Honeyblossom.
which one is worse - being called 'Little' anything when you are actually oversized, or instead of a flower name like Rose/Lily, you get stuck with Honeyblossom?

Paula Yates & Michael Hutchence: Baby daughter Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily
see above before you get angry, she was the mom of the four fraggle's, why would she name a child with the famous druggie-INXS singer any differently?

Tonya Linette Lewis & Spike Lee: Baby daughter Satchel
Spike's always got something in the bag...

Claudia Schiffer & Matthew Vaughn: Baby son Caspar
he is friendly, and you can hardly see him :-)

but just when you thought it was bad in the US, New Zealand's got:

Talula Does The Hula - what, she's Hawaiian!

Fish and Chips - their parents shared that the night they concieved him.

Yeah Detroit
- big time Michigan fans, um....in New Zealand.

Keenan Got Lucy
- guess what their parent's names were.

Sex Fruit
- their sex was peachy enough to have this wonderful child.

Bus Shelter - place of conception.

Violence - I don't have a witty one for this child, instead - I feel really bad for them.

New Zealand also has laws allowing these names to be blocked, and a ruling that will not allow parents to name their children with embarrasing 'titles'. (source)

should we do the same?
