North West and 50 More Unique Celebrity Baby Names

Updated on June 25, 2013

With the arrival of Kim and Kanye’s little girl, the world breathlessly waited for that special baby moniker that would announce her as part of the Kardashian dynasty. But, fans may have been surprised when the much anticipated name didn’t begin with “K”, a la Kris, Kylie, Kendall, Khloé, Kourtney, Kim and, don’t forget, Kanye, but instead it began with North and ended with West...that’s right, Kimye’s little bundle is named North West.

Granted, Kim and Kanye aren’t the first celebrity parents to come up with a unique, and widely discussed, name for their newborn. In fact, uncommon baby naming has become rather commonplace in Tinseltown.

Below are 50 of some of the most unconventional, and bizarre, celebrity baby names in Hollywood history.
