What On Earth Were They Thinking?

Show business people come up with some very strange names for their children.  What brought this to my attention was the unexpected death of Bob Geldorf's youngest daughter, the late Peaches Honeyblossom Geldorf.  She is being mourned by sisters Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lilly and Fifi Trixiebelle.   Bob, the father's nickname, was originally christened Robert Frederick Zenon Geldorf. 

Those who have been named according to the city in which they were conceived (such a nice thought for a child, no?)
Paris Hilton
Brooklyn Beckham

Others are just totally insane.  May I present -
Ace Knute Johnson, son of Jessica Simpson
Blue Ivy Carter, spawn of Beyoncé and Jay.Z
Kim and Kanye's North West
Gwyneth Paltrow's Apple?  Said the proud mother, "It sounded so sweet" adding that it is also a Biblical reference. 
Jade Jagger  Mick and Bianca's daughter. 

Craziness pure and simple.  I wonder if these parents actually call the child by those names?  Poor things - it'll be a long time until they're 18 and can legally change them.  In the meantime, I wish them well - they're going to need all the good will they can muster.
