(Newser) – Celebrities tend to choose some very, er, interesting names for their offspring, but this year two names stood out: Bear Blu Jarecki, born to Alicia Silverstone, and Moroccan Cannon, born to Mariah Carey. Those two tied for the worst celebrity baby boy names of 2011 on a new BabyNames.com poll, ABC News reports. The worst baby girl name "award" went to Zuzu Audrey Peterson, daughter of a former Top Chef Just Desserts contestant. Poll respondents also didn't like the name Mirabella Bunny, daughter to Bryan Adams, or Kevin James' choice for his son, Kannon.

But not all the names this year were terrible: Ne-Yo's son, Mason Evan Smith, was honored for having the best boy's name, while Pink's daughter, Willow Sage Hart, won on the girls' side. Moroccan Cannon's twin sister, Monroe, was also deemed to have one of the best names, the New York Daily News notes, along with Tina Fey's daughter, Penelope Athena.

Those two will be changing their names as soon as they legally can.

Twenty two years ago, I named my girl "Wilson", because it is her fathers last name. The shit hit the fan, but now it is quite fashionable, and more original than most of the androgynous names given girls, like Whitney or Taylor.
