The Worst Celebrity Baby Names for 2013 From a U.K. Perspective

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.
