Dimity Facente is the name of model Lydia Hearst and comedian Chris Hardwick’s daughter, born in 2022.
- Kulture Kiari
When it comes to fashion, Cardi B has a bold fashion game going on that is different from the other celebs. So, it was pretty predictable that she will choose a unique name for her baby girl too.
In 2018, she and her partner, rapper Offset, welcomed their first baby girl and named her Kulture. According to Cardi B’s tweet, she didn’t want to go for a “basic” name.

Does this name sound melodic to you? It is sweet to the ears, and it sounds cute.
This is the name of Darren Criss and Mia’s daughter. Both of these famous personalities spend hours in the studio making music together.
And then, in April 2022, they welcomed their first baby girl into this world. Hence, this lyrical name.
This is the name of a popular star kid. You may already know her or have seen pictures and videos of her on social media channels.
If you ask me, I have seen multiple videos of her with her mom, and I like this kiddo so much.
Yes, I’m talking about none other than Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s daughter, Stormi.
- Blue Ivy
I’m a huge fan of Beyonce’s singing, and you are too if you like listening to songs.
The power couple of Hollywood, Beyonce, and Jay-Z, gave their firstborn the name Blue Ivy. This name is unique and has a sense of power to it.
She is twelve years old and has already started making a name for herself in the industry.
- North West
If you follow Kim Kardashian, you may already know what she has named her and Kanye West’s daughter. It’s North West.
She told LIVE with Kelly and Ryan: “When North was born, I knew North West was a unique name. Well, all my kids’ names are very unique, but I didn’t name her for maybe three or four days. I looked at her and I said a prayer with her. I was like, ‘I pray to God you can handle your name. I hope you are this name that I’m choosing.’ I mean, it was really emotional for me.”
Then she said, “You can’t go higher than North.”
- Chicago West
This is the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s third-born daughter.
When Kim was asked about the story behind giving her girl the name Chicago on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said, “We were going to name her Jo, ’cause [of] my grandma, Mary Jo. Or we were gonna go with Grace — and then it was Chicago. We ended up with Chicago.”
Well, if you don’t know, Chicago is the hometown of Kanye West.
Who doesn’t like to dream, especially when it’s a good one?
Becoming parents is like a dream come true for many couples who face complications during pregnancy or find it hard to get pregnant.
So, “Dream” is a beautiful name indeed. And not to mention the uniqueness it has.
Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian named their daughter Dream. But their relationship ended shortly after that.
- Row Renggli
Have you heard this name before?
I haven’t. And I don’t think any common man or woman would opt for this weird name.
It is the name of the host of E! News, Morgan Stewart, and her partner Jordan McGraw. Row is their firstborn.
If you are into coding, you may know that Java is a programming language. But here, I’m not going to give you lessons about programming!

Sunday is the most relaxed day of the week, right?
But did you know that a few celebrities have chosen this day of the week as the name of their kids?
Sunday is the name of YouTube-famed Savannah and Cole LaBrant’s daughter. Also, it is the name of Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman and Mike Myers and Kelly’s daughters.
So, you can see, there is a demand for this name among celebs, right?
- Jupiter Iris French
Do you remember Ashley Tisdale from the High School Musical movie series? She was also the host of the Masked Dancer.
She and Christopher French, her husband have chosen the name Jupiter for their daughter. Jupiter is not only the name of a planet but also the name of the Roman gods’ king. Her middle name Iris is a flower. Also, it translates to a rainbow in the Greek language.
- Lyra Antarctica
Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran brought their daughter into this world in the year 2020. They gave her the name Lyra. According to the Greek language, it translates to harp.
As Ed Sheeran is a famous singer, choosing a name that means harp is not that surprising. What is surprising is the last name Antarctica. I have no idea why they have chosen this last name!
- Olympia Lightning Bolt
This name reminds me of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. And I can’t find any definite reason behind that.
This is the name of Usain Bolt, the retired Olympic champion and Kasi Bennett’s daughter. Okay, so now I get why they went for this name!
- Exa Dark Sideræl
Well, I don’t know how to pronounce that last word in this name. It’s the name of business tycoon Elon Musk and his partner Grimes’ daughter.
According to Grimes, Exa is related to exaFLOPS, a supercomputing term, and Dark refers to “the unknown.”
- Prairie Moon
Mark Webber and his actress partner Teressa Palmer have four children together. The youngest one is named Prairie Moon after her birth in the year 2021.
Palmer wrote, “Introducing our daughter, Prairie Moon Palmer, who was born just as the sun rose on Tuesday morning, 17th August, surrounded by her siblings who are absolutely enamored with her. A little magic moon for our family.”
Her other three kids are also given names inspired by nature: Bodhi Rain, Poet Lake, and Forest Sage.
Aren’t these names super unique?
- Raddix Chloe Wildflower
Cameron Diaz is one of my favorite actresses of all time. I became her fan from the time I watched Charlie’s Angels.
She and her husband Benji Madden has a soft corner for the word “rad”. And so, they added it to the name of their beloved daughter, who was born in 2020.
Isn’t it a pretty name?
Hannah and Derek Jeter named their daughter Story when she was born in 2019. And I really want to know if she has great imagination power. After all, her name is Story!
- Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence
Yes, this is a name and not a sentence.
Actress Uma Thurman and her ex-partner Arpad Busson chose this name for their daughter, who is ten years old now.
I’m thinking about the poor girl when she has to write her name in school!
- Gravity Blue
When parents have names like Lucky Blue Smith and Stormi Henley, how can you expect that they will name their kids Jimmy and Johnny?
These two celebrities together named their firstborn girl Gravity Blue when she was born in 2017.
The singer and model Lucky Blue Smith have two other kids with Nara Pellman, and they are named Rumble Honey and Slim Easy.
Weird Celebrity Baby Names for Boys
Many celebs have given birth to baby boys lately, and many are expecting.
In this section, I have come up with the unusual boy names that many of our favorite stars have chosen for their little ones.
Are you ready to know?
Film producer Andre Lemmers and model Adriana Lima wanted to name their son something that resembles the pretty blue-green water of the Maldives.
After all, their son has the same eye color.
And so, they ended up naming their son Cyan – a pretty name indeed.
- Audio Science
No, this is not a branch of science related to sounds. It is the name of actress Shannyn Sossaman.
According to them, they “wanted a word, not a name” when it came to naming their elder son.
Audio Science is a grown-up now and is a bright producer, songwriter, and singer.
- Wave Set
Cardi B and her rapper partner Offset welcomed their second child, a boy, in the year 2021.
And just like his elder sister, he got a unique name Wave Set.
- Aire Webster
No matter how often Kylie Jenner has gone under the knife, I like how she looks now.
She and Travis Scott, her now-ex, welcomed their son Aire Webster into this world on 2nd February 2022. Of course, at first, they thought of naming their baby Wolf, but that somehow didn’t work, and they changed their mind.
- X Æ A-12
No, this is not a code or some mathematical equation. This is the name of the technology tycoon Elon Musk and his partner pop star Grimes’s son.
This name is the dad of weirdness, I must say, at least to me. And I feel sad for the school teacher who will have to call his name daily for attendance!
Jokes apart, in order to make it easier for people to call their son, they have nicknamed him X.
- Strummer Newcomb
Looking at the words, you might think that I’m talking about buying a new comb from some specific brand. But the reality is nothing near it.
It is actually the name of Julia Stiles and Preston Cook’s son, who is four years old now.
- Wilde Wolf Fife Alexander Somers
This is not the name of five different kids, this is the name of only one kid.
Maximillian Cooper and rapper Eve gave their name to their son when he came into this world in 2022.
Yes, this name is a bit too long. But I know that won’t matter as it’s the name of a celebrity kid. And celebrities are there to set examples. This time, with a unique name for their son.
- Pilot Inspektor
Is there any line from a song or a movie that you like so much that you wanted to name your kid with that?
Well, something like that happened with actor Jason Lee and Beth, his ex-wife.
They liked the song “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot” so much that they ended up naming their son Pilot Inspektor. In case you don’t know, this is a song from Grandaddy, an indie rock band.
Are you an adventurer at heart? Have you watched Man vs. Wild?
Well, no matter how less of an adventurer you are, I’m pretty sure you already know who Bear Grylls is, right?
I first saw his video when I was in school. He inspired me a lot; now, I do at least five treks a year.
Now, do you know what this famous adventurer has named his son?
Yes, it’s Marmaduke.
- Cosmo Jost
I don’t know about you, but I love Scarlett Johansson in her character Black Widow in the Marvel movie series The Avengers. I was totally floored watching her do those action scenes so smoothly.
I never knew she has kids until a few days back! Yes. She is the mother of two kids.
Her younger one is a 2021-born boy, and his name is Cosmo. She has this baby with Colin Jost.
- Saint West
Saint is the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son. He is their second child.
Kim said, “My son Saint, he is a saint. It’s like he literally has become his name. He is an angel.”
Well, to every parent, their kids are like angels, right?
- Psalm West
So, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West together have four kids before their split up. And Psalm is their youngest son, born in the year 2019.
Her grandma Kris Jenner said, “The inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible.”
Psalm is a Hebrew word that translates to “song.”
- Buddy Dessert
No, this is not the name of a friendly-looking dessert. It is the name of a celebrity kid. Guess who?
Brie Bella is a retired wrestler and a popular television personality. She gave birth to her son in the year 2020 and gave him the name Buddy, which is to honor her late grandfather.
And the middle name, Dessert?
Brie said, “For his middle name, I really wanted to incorporate my family. I wanted Buddy to have something of my grandmother. Her last name, her maiden name, is Dessert. When you look at it, people are going to say Dessert because it’s French. But it’s pronounced ‘desert.’
So now you know.
This is a weird name for a boy, isn’t it? But most celebrities don’t want to give common names to their kids.
The famous filmmaker Robert Rodriguez who made films like Spy Kids, and his ex-partner chose to give their baby boy the name Rogue when he was born in 2004. The names of his other siblings are Rebel, Rocket, Racer, and Rhiannon.
Are you a fan of Superman movies?
Then you might have already found the reference for this name. And if you haven’t, well, this is the name that Superman carries from his Kryptonian heritage.
I suppose Nicolas Cage is a huge fan of Superman movies, as he and his ex-wife have given the name Kal-El to their second son.
Here ends my list of weird celebrity baby names.
Now, tell me, have you enjoyed reading the unique names? Which of these names surprised you the most? And who is your favorite star, by the way?
