MIAMI (CBS4) – What’s in a name?
A lot, if you’re a kid saddled with a weird one.
Now parents are regretting some of their choices.
A new survey found more than half of British parents wish they’d picked a different name for their child.
I wonder how many celebrities have name remorse.
Beyonce and Jay-Z named their baby Blue Ivy. They like it so much they’re trademarking it. Are you ready to buy “Blue Ivy” products? I thought ivy was green.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin got grief for naming their daughter Apple. That’s almost normal now.
Nicholas Cage’s son is Kal-El, Superman’s Kryptonian name. What can you expect from a guy who changed his last name to a superhero’s?
The Jacksons are big offenders. Michael named one son Prince Michael, the other Prince Michael the Second and nicknamed him Blanket.
Jermaine named his child “Jermajesty.” Really.
Rob Morrow called his kid “Tu.” Get it? Tu-morrow?
The all-time champ is Frank Zappa. Have Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Thin Muffin ever forgiven him?
Surprisingly, parents regret the names they chose mostly because they become too common, not because they’re weird. Parents should stop thinking about looking cool and give their kids names they can live with happily ever after.
