From North West to Blanket Jackson, there is no limit to Hollywood's whimsy when it comes to naming celeb kids. Are these celebrity kids going to be amused, embarrassed, shocked or entertained when they realise the names they will be addressed by all their lives? We can only guess.

But, for now, these children are definitely popular for their unique, innovative names chosen by their star parents. Are the parents patting themselves on their back for their sheer creativity? Well, here's a rain check.

Kim with North West

North West: Daughter of musician Kanye West and socialite Kim Kardashian.

There are already jokes that KimK may call her second child South West. Lol

Beyonce and Blue Ivy

Blue Ivy: Daughter of singers Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z.

Queen Bey called her daughter Blue Ivy. Nope, it still doesn't sound cool, only reminds us that there is a plant called Poison Ivy.

Christina with Summer Rain on a magazine cover

Summer Rain: Daughter of American singer Christina Aguilera and fiancé Matthew Rutler.

You are a winsome child Summer, even though your parents chose to call you THAT.

Bodhi Ransom with Brian

Bodhi Ransom:Son of actor Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green.

They called their son Ransom. We rest our case.

Apple and Gwyneth

Apple: Daughter of actor Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin.

Gwyneth named her daughter Apple because it sounded wholesome. Or at least that's how she explained it. Won't Broccoli have been more apt?

Bronx Mowgli with Ashlee and Pete

Bronx Mowgli: Son of singers Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz.

This kid will get a lot of attention, a lot of it unwanted. Thanks, parents.

Michael Jackson's son Blanket

Blanket: Son of the late singer Michael Jackson.

MJ appeared to have run out of names.

Jason Lee with wife and son, Pilot Inspektor

Pilot Inspektor:
Son of actor Jason Lee.

Really funny name. Jason Lee, for your sake, we hope the child gets the joke.

Sunday Molly: Son of American movie producer Mike Myers and wife Kelly Tisdale.

Names like these are the foundation on which children form resentment against their parents.

Bono with Memphis

Memphis Eve Sunny Day Hewson: Daughter of U2 singer Bono.

This kid has a name for every weekday. Why didn't Bono gave her a name for weekend? Because Sunday was already taken by Mike Myers.

Pharell with Rocket Ayer

Rocket Ayer: Son of singer William Pharell.

We would like to believe Pharell wants his son to be an astronaut. Because, there can be no sane explanation.

Sage Moonblood:Son of American actor Sylverster Stallone.

Moonblood may be a good name for a Harry Potter character. We are not sure it suits a muggle.

Seven Sirius Benjamin, Puma Sabti Curry and Mars Merkaba Thedford: Children of singer Erykah Badu.
