When a celebrity has a child, it’s splashed all over the news and the public revels in the birth or the adoption. We’re always so fascinated with a celebrity baby. Is it a boy or a girl? Who does he or she look like? Where was he born? And the biggest question of all: what’s his or her name?
People in the entertainment industry are famous (or infamous, depending on how you look at it) for giving their babies the most absurd of names. Whether it’s because they just simply want to be unique or they’re confident their kids won’t get bullied for having such a strange name because their parents are famous, we’ll never know. Like many parents, some celebs take to naming their children after other famous people that they respect and admire greatly. Here are some of the celebs who did just that when choosing names for their children.
11 Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
10 Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
9 Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain
8 Celine Dion
7 Fergie and Josh Duhamel
6 Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy
5 Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
4 Demi Moore and Bruce Willis
3 Kelsey Grammer
2 Geri Halliwell
1 John Drew Barrymore
Her name has been ingrained in Hollywood way before she was born. Drew Barrymore is the daughter of actor John Drew Barrymore and both hail from the illustrious Barrymore clan, a long line of actors that spans five generations. The name Drew was her father’s middle name, her great-grandmother, Geordie Drew Barrymore’s maiden name, and her great-great-grandfather, John Drew’s last name. But despite being the granddaughter of John Barrymore and grandniece of Lionel Barrymore and Ethel Barrymore, the young Barrymore has certainly had her own accomplishments away from the shadow of her famous ancestors.
