Here’s the way the Worst Celebrity Baby Names for 2013 looks on the other side of the Atlantic. My source was HeatWorld–a U.K. entertainment and celebrity news magazine. I’ll present the “awards” in reverse order, from bad to worse and all the way down to worst to heighten the suspense:
10th Fergie for naming her son Axl
9th Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for naming their daughter North
8th Katie Price for naming her son Jett
7th Colleen and Wayne Rooney for naming their son Klay
6th Edith Bowman for naming her son Spike
5th Halle Berry and Oliver Martinez for naming their son Maceo
4th Bryan Adams for naming his daughter Lulu
3rd Sophie Dahl and Jamie Cullum for naming their daughter Margot
2nd Jessica Simpson for naming her son Ace
1st Peaches Geldof for naming her son Phaedra
A few comments about the worst celebrity name. Phaedra was a character in Greek Mythology and the protagonist in a play by ancient Greek dramatist, Euripides. Apparently Phaedra was the wife of Theseus who cheated on him and came to a very bad end. Apparently Brits don’t think Phaedra is a great name for a baby boy. I agree wholeheartedly.
