The 54 most baffling, unique, and head-scratching names celebrities gave their kids

[blue ivy beyonce]Mario Anzuoni/Reuters When it comes to naming their kids, celebrities often don't follow the same rules as everyone else. While non-famous people tend to name their kids normal things like "Jacob" and "Emily," actors, musicians, and other artists think it's part of their life's mission to be creative and push boundaries. Stuart Fischoff, a psychologist who's worked with clients in Hollywood, told The New York Times, giving your child a normal name would be a betrayal of that goal. "They're expressing their creativity, and they're also expressing their fear," Fischoff told the Times. "It would be very embarrassing for people to think of them as normal." Here are 54 celebrity children with the most unusual names, ranked in order of unusualness. 54. ZEPHYR EMERSON PARKER AP CELEBRITY PARENTS: Entrepreneur Sean and singer-songwriter Alexandra Parker EXPLANATION GIVEN: "Zephyr" is the Greek term for "Western wind," or "light wind," which plays a pivotal role in the ancient Greek epic "The Odyssey." They could have also been trying to honor academic and political activist Zephyr Teachout. It's not really clear. 52 AND 53. SCOUT AND RUMER WILLIS Randy Shropshire/Getty Images for The Art of Elysium CELEBRITY PARENTS: Bruce Willis and Demi Moore EXPLANATION GIVEN: The children's names are both literary. Rumer is named after the English novelist Rumer Godden, most famous for "Black Narcissus." Scout was named after the main character of "To Kill a Mockingbird." 51. ROCKET ZOT WORTHINGTON Jason Kempin/Getty Images CELEBRITY PARENTS: "Avatar" actor Sam Worthington and model Laura Bingle EXPLANATION GIVEN: Worthington's father, Ronald, was nicknamed "Zot," according to Page Six. No word on "Rocket." SEE THE REST OF THE STORY AT BUSINESS INSIDER
