From Apple To Zowie: The Craziest Celebrity Baby Names
October 21st, 2012 3:14pm EDT
Uma Thurman and her French financier boyfriend Arpad Busson revealed the name of their newborn baby girl this week, and the tot's title is a mouthful.
Not content with the typical first/middle/last -- or in this case hyphenated last -- name, the little girl surely has a challenging future ahead of her when it comes to filling out any types of forms.
The couple named their three-month-old Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Where they got her nickname, "Luna," from is a mystery; but their rep says each name has a special reason and meaning.
But Uma and Arpad -- who has a son, Aurelius Cy, with supermodel Elle MacPherson -- aren't the only stars to Christen their newborn with an obscure, outlandish, weird, strange or downright crazy name. Check out these unique names given to poor, defenseless babies who will at some point feel the wrath of bullying schoolmates. We promise they get stranger as they go on...
