The 5 Most Unique Celebrity Baby Names

The recent birth and naming of Christina Aguilera’s daughter Summer Rain, presumably inspired by watching the weather forecast, has motivated us at Magazines.com to come up with a list of the most unusual celebrity baby names in Hollywood. While a name like North West has already had its fair share of attention in the news, there are plenty of other one-of-a-kind baby names coming out of Hollywood.

 

PiratePirate Houseman Davis

While it might be every little boy’s dream to become a pirate, Pirate Houseman Davis gets to live out this fantasy every day – for the rest of his life. If he ever dresses as a pirate for Halloween, he’s already a step ahead of other swashbuckling, hook-handed trick-or-treaters, and he can thank parents Jonathan and Deven Davis for this foresight.

 

David BeckhamHarper Seven

While there is certainly nothing wrong with “Harper,” which is a great name, having a middle name that can be transcribed as a numerical figure pretty much makes up for having a cool first name. The Beckhams decided to name daughter Harper Seven Beckham after the father’s football jersey number. Go figure.

 

Blanket

Michael Jackson apparently believed that “blanket” was the perfect name for his newborn son. Perhaps he looked at his child covered up in a comfy blanket and was hit by inspiration. Who really knows?

 

Audio Science

Actress and musician Shannyn Sossamon and Dallas Clayton thought that a unique first or middle name alone was not enough. Little Audio Science will never have to share a name with anyone else in school – or in any other situation.

 

Apple

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin of Coldplay named their baby girl after a piece of fruit. While apples are more reminiscent of the produce section than a little girl, little Apple’s parents definitely showed their creative sides when naming their daughter.

 

Which name do you think is the worst? Are there any other weird celebrity baby names that deserve a spot on our list?

How to Peacefully Introduce the New Baby to the Family Dog

Modern Dog magazine winter 2012Whether you’re planning your next tattoo or preparing to introduce a new baby to the family dog, the winter issue of Modern Dog magazine is a must-read!

Off all the blurbs on the front of the Winter issue of Modern Dog magazine–women wanting dogs while men need them, an update on the Michael Vick dogs and doing yoga with your dog–my eyes immediately when to the small text about dog tattoos.

Don’t tell my grandmother, but I have three tattoos, and I’m ready for another one. I’ve even been considering something dog-related. I just can’t decide yet.

After being distracted by and dreaming about new tattoos, I gave the issue my full attention. One article in particular struck me as very important reading for the moms-to-be out there.

“Pregnancy, Babies and the Family Dog” was written by behaviorist/trainer/veterinarian Jennifer Messer. If anyone would know the best way to introduce a new baby to an 11-year-old pit bull, I’d think it would be her.

Messer offers five great pieces of advice, all of which require a bit of planning. One of my favorite tips involves downloading baby sounds online–babies crying, babies laughing, babies screaming with hunger. Messer suggests giving the resident dog some delicious treats while listening to those sounds. Charlotte, her pittie, prefers chicken hot dogs as she gets accustomed to the new and strange noises that will soon infiltrate her home.

I wish them all a happy and healthy life together.
