Celebrities name their kids oddly


     Over the past few years, celebrities have been coming up with the most uncommon names for their children; some for specific reasons and some for mysterious reasons.

     For starters, I'm sure we are all familiar with the Kardashian-Jenners. Kylie Jenner recently gave birth to her beautiful baby boy, Wolf Webster. She gave him the middle name ¨Jacques¨ after his dad Travis Scott. Kylie previously gave birth to her daughter Stormi Webster back in 2018. Before she came up with the official name, Stormi, Kylie shared that she was going to be named Rose. The name Stormi started off as a private nickname the Kardashians had called her, but it ended up being her name as if she named herself, which is why I think that the names of both of her children fit them well.

     Another well-known Kardashian, famous American socialite and businesswoman Kim Kardashian, gave birth to her son Psalm West in 2019 after her previous children: North, Chicago and Saint. She shared that she wanted to name him Psalm because it would have been too basic to name him Ye, after his father Kanye West's legal name. His name originates from the book of Psalms in the Bible, which means ¨song¨. Kris Jenner shared that the name Psalm has a deeper meaning to it, as Psalm has been a blessing to the Kardashian family. I think that the name Psalm is unique, knowing

that Kim faced many problems while giving birth to her son, Saint West. 

     Apart from the Kardashians, Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn introduced their child to the world back in 2020. They named her Lyra Antarctica. The name Lyra in Greek means ¨harp¨. Her middle name was based on a trip that the couple took to Antarctica together two years before their baby girl was born. There is not much known about why they decided to name her this, but let's just say that the name fits well, as Sheeran is a musician. I think that the name is very symbolic and understandable because of the years Sheeran and Seaborn have spent together in their marriage.  

     Lastly, another uncommon but lovely baby name is Wilde Wolf, the name given to the son of famous rapper Eve Jihan Cooper and British race car driver (and the founder of the Gumball 3000) Maximilian Cooper. Eve gave birth to Wolf on Feb. 1, 2022. This was also their first child together after the four years they have been married. I think that this might be one of the most perplexing names that I have heard so far, but it's still unique. 

     Overall, I think some of these names are more realistic than others, but they all are unique. Out of all of them, I think that Psalm, Saint, Chicago and Stormi are the most delightful names that I have heard of.
