Celebrities Need To Be Banned From Naming Their Kids

Have you ever thought about your name before and the meaning behind it? You may have asked yourself questions like, “Why would my parents name me this?” or “Why can’t I have a better name?” Well, if you’re asking yourself these questions, you most likely haven’t heard of the names celebrities name their children. Because if you’re a multibillionaire, every name for a child is socially acceptable, right?


1. Pilot Inspektor Lee

My Rating: -2/10

Personally, I think this has to be one of the worst names you could possibly choose to name a kid. Jason Lee, a famous actor and father of the child, mentions that the name comes from an indie rock song, “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot” “The opening track absolutely blew my mind when I first heard it. It was from this track that my wife, Beth, came up with the name Pilot for our son,” he claimed. Although the name has a significant meaning to the parents, I think that it is wrong to name a child this as it can easily be made fun of. It is inappropriate and reminds me of something that would be the name of a cartoon character. I also think that the name “Pilot Inspektor” will influence others to name their children after songs as well. This can quickly get inappropriate as a majority of artists include swear words and derogatory terms in their song titles. Also, the name “Inspektor” looks wrong with a “k” and should at least be replaced with a “c”. I think that the parents tried to take a different approach with this quirky name, but it wasn’t executed properly. If I was named this, I would immediately change my name as soon as I could.


2. Apple Martin

My Rating: 3.5/10

When I hear the name “Apple”, all I can think of is the fruit or the electronics brand. While there are some objects such as flowers that can pass as names like the names Lily or Rose, “Apple” isn’t one of them. I do think that the name “Apple” is cute for a little girl. A lot of little kids like when their parents call them cute nicknames like “Pumpkin” or “Peach” or “Apple”. However, these are usually not their real names and they are only really used by family members. I think that naming a child after a cute nickname is not very appropriate and will embarrass them. It will seem unprofessional when put on a form or job application. If we can name kids “Apple”, does that mean we could name them “Dragon Fruit”?


3. Blue Ivy Carter

My Rating: 5/10

Although I think this is kind of a pretty name, I think it would sound better without the “Blue”. The name “Ivy” on its own is really cute and simple. I think that longer names get too complicated and are usually shortened to nicknames anyways. Singing sensation, Beyonce, and her husband Jay Z decided to name their daughter “Blue Ivy” to represent Jay Z’s Blueprint albums. The “Ivy” part of the name symbolizes the couple’s lucky number, 4, as it was the number day both were born on and the number day they were married on. 4 in roman numerals is IV. The thought that went behind this name is really cute, however I think that the couple wouldn’t have named their daughter this if they weren’t famous.


4. Malibu Barbie Paytas

My Rating: 1/10

What kind of name is this? Is there anything normal about this name? All I can think of is a blonde, plastic doll who only wears pink. I suppose “Barbie” is a sort of acceptable name but adding the “Malibu” just ruins it. Just because Trisha Paytas is “over-the-top”, doesn’t mean that she has to name her baby something extravagant. Following Paytas’s tweet, announcing the name of her baby, many people replied with backlash. One person replied with, “Please tell me you did not actually curse your child with the name” Malibu Barbie”” while another responded with “It’s not even funny if it’s real. That child is going to be bullied so bad”. Besides the ridiculousness of the name itself, it really has no meaning behind it. Will the mom still have a connection to the name when the child is older? It most likely won’t have any significance after a while.
