For every celebrity like Gwyneth Paltrow who names her baby Apple, there’s a Cristiano Ronaldo who names his baby…Cristiano Ronaldo. The Daily Beast takes a look at 9 celebrities who didn't get too creative with baby names:
- George Foreman: Not only are his five sons all named George—he was “really close to naming all the girls George as well,” he once wrote, “but I decided that might have been overkill.”
- Courteney Cox: Her daughter would have been named “Courteney Cox”—but dad David Arquette is half-Jewish and against naming children after a living person, so they instead combined the first two letters of mom’s first and last names to come up with “Coco.”
- Roland Burris: The Illinois senator appointed, controversially, by Gov. Rod Blagojevich has a son named Roland II, a daughter named Rolanda, and a grandson named…wait for it…Roland.
- Jermaine Jackson: Turns out Michael wasn’t the only one in the Jackson family with a penchant for naming kids after himself. Jermaine has a Jermaine Jr., a Jaimy, a Jermajesty, and a bunch of other J-name kids: Jeremy, Jourdynn, and Jafaar. Almost makes you feel bad for left-out children Autumn and Dawn.
