You named your baby what??? 25 weirdest celebrity baby names.

There is no shortage of weird baby names, especially in Celebrity world -- in fact, the hard part is narrowing the list down! When a celebrity has a baby, everything from where the couple registers for presents to the hospital where the mom-to-be gives birth gets examined and criticized. Perhaps it's that inherent intrusiveness that leads stars to use some truly unusual and wacky baby names? Whatever the reason, check out the top 25 weird celebrity baby names.

Celebrities can have some pretty unusual tastes in baby names. We devoured lists of stars and their babies to come up with the 25 most unusual celebrity baby names.

25. Hopper

When a congressmen submits a proposed bill in the House of Representatives, he or she puts it ceremoniously into the hopper, a brown wooden box located on the floor of the house.

Hopper is also the name of the son of Sean Penn and Robin Wright, which Penn said in a 2004 interview with New York Magazine, that he and his like liked the name "aesthetically."

24. Apple

It's the forbidden fruit, it'll keep the doctor away and it's the epitome of Americanism. But Apple is also the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's first daughter. They got the idea from one of Martin's band mates, who also has a child named Apple.

In an interview with Oprah, Paltrow said that she liked how it sounded "wholesome" and "clean." Pictured is Gwyneth and Apple.

23. Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo and Petal Blossom Rainbow

Leave it to a renowned chef to bring in vibrant names to the table when naming their children. Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, named their daughters Poppy, Daisy and Petal. Apparently the floral motif is big for naming in the Oliver clan.

22. Calico, Dash and Sonora Rose

What name purrs like a kitten? Alice Cooper and wife Sheryl's daughter Calico. But move over, commonly colored cat, this Calico is a talented singer and actress. Cooper's penchant for unusual names also extended to his other kids, Dash and Sonora Rose.

21. Sage Moonblood and Seargeoh

When you hear the names of this pair, you can't help but get stuck on Sage Moonblood. What does that even mean? But look past it, and see Seargeoh ... then picture dad

Sylvester Stallone pronouncing it. It just fits.

20. Aurelius

Back in the time of the Romans, Aurelii was the name of an elite group of families. Aurelius was the male version of the name, and it's also the name of the youngest son of Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson and Arpad Busson (who's now engaged to Uma Thurman).

19. Blue Angel

Some people name their children after family members, others name them for Biblical figures. But U2's The Edge and Aislinn O'Sullivan? They went for Blue Angel. Sounds like a clothing line, doesn't it?

18. Bluebell Madonna

Back in the late 90s, the Spice Girls were known for their shrinking hemlines and get-up-and-move music. These days though, many of the Spice Girls have taken on a new role: mom.

Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice") is no exception ... and her daughter's name pays homage to both music and beautiful flowers: Bluebell Madonna. The British mother-daughter duo are pictured left.

17. Fifi TrixibellE, Peaches and Pixie

File this one under "What were they thinking??". Bob Geldof and Paula Yates named their firstborn daughter Fifi Trixibelle.

Meanwhile, their other daughters fared no better with Peaches Honeyblossom and Pixie. The late Paula Yates went on to have one more daughter, this one with (also late) INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence. The child is known as Tiger, which is a whole lot simpler to remember than her given name: Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

16. Destry

Somewhere between destiny and destroy is Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw's daughter Destry.

15. Diezel Ky

Alternate spellings can be a cool way to customize a name, and that's what Toni Braxton and Keri Lewis did with their son, Diezel Ky. Diezel's older brother is named Denim Cole.

14. Willow Camille Reign

Back in the 90s, Will Smith was best known as the Fresh Prince, so it's pretty darn appropriate that he and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith incorporated a royal moniker like Reign into their daughter's name.

13. Marquise

There is something mighty noble about rapper 50 Cent's son's name, Marquise. The word means French nobleman.

12. Zola Ivy

Parents Eddie Murphy and Nicole Mitchell created one of those names that flows nicely together, although it's an unexpected combination. The name? Zola Ivy. Eddie Murphy's other kids include Bella Zahra, Shane Audra, Brea and Angel Iris Murphy Brown (the last was with Spice Girl Melanie Brown).

11. Tallulah, Scout and Rumer

You can't bring one of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's children into the name list without the other two. The couple, who divorced in 2000, named their kids Tallulah, Scout and Rumer. And boy, did Demi make rumors when she started dating her current husband, Ashton Kutcher -- who is 16 years her junior.

10. Ocean, Sonnet and True

There is something poetic about Forest Whitaker's kids names: Ocean, Sonnet and True ...

9. Shiloh Nouvel

Parents of six, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have a cache of unusual names, but their biological daughter Shiloh's name takes the cake in the clan (siblings include Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Knox and Vivienne). Pictured is Shiloh with Papa Pitt.

8. Seven Sirius, Puma Sabti and Mars Merkaba

Naming a baby really is serious business. When Andre Benjamin and Erykah Badu named their son, they took that to heart with Seven Sirius (say it outloud). Badu has since given birth to two more kids, Puma (hello, sneakers!) and Mars (the red planet?).

7. Satchel

Babies are so cute, you just want to scoop them up and keep them close. Maybe that's why Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee named their child for bag that's great for carrying things: Satchel.

6. Kyd

David Duchovny and Tea Leoni spared no creativity here, naming thier son ... wait for it ... wait for it ... Kyd. Guess that makes calling the child over a cinch.

5. Moxie CrimeFighter and Zolten

Illusionist Penn Jillette isn't fooling anyone with the unusual names for his kids: Moxie CrimeFighter and Zolten. Do you think Zolten is a CrimeFighter with Moxie?

4. Pilot Inspektor

Some things just aren't intended to be names. Sometimes, if you want to choose an unusal name, it's better to balance it with a more traditional name. Of course, Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf didn't get that memo when they named Pilot Inspektor.

3. Kal-El

Superman has a fan in Nicholas Cage, who named his son Kal-El ... which is the first name of the Man of Steel.

2. Jermajesty

Jerm-Jerma .... no, no, no. This name is pronounced like Her Majesty, but with a J at the start of it. That one comes from parents Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza. 'Nuff said.

1. Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Muffin

You can't have a list of unusual celebrity baby names without mentioning the kids of Frank Zappa -- Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Muffin. The man is a pioneer in the naming division, for sure.
