London: Mariah Carey’s choice of name Moroccan for her son is tied with Alicia Silverstone’s Bear Blu as worst celebrity baby names.
While these were the worst boy names, former Top Chef Just Desserts contestant Tania Peterson and her husband Phil had the distinction of choosing the worst girl’s name with her choice of Zuzu Audrey for their daughter.
More than 10,000 people voted on the poll carried out by website BabyNames.com.
The best celebrity girl’s name was Willow Sage Hart, the daughter of singer Pink and motocross star Carey Hart.
The best celebrity boy’s name was Mason Evan Smith, son of rapper/actor Ne-Yo and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.
Celebrities giving their children unusual monikers is nothing new but in recent years there has been a trend for even more outrageous names.
Jennifer Moss, founder of the website BabyNames.com said some of those chosen by celebrity parents have a chance of becoming popular.
“Celebrity parents have a huge influence on baby name trends,” the Daily Mail quoted Moss as saying.
“As long as the names aren’t too far out, you could see celebrity-chosen names hitting the top ten within a year,” she said.
Moss said the girl’s name Harper, chosen by David Beckham and his wife Victoria for their daughter, was at number ten on the most popular baby names of 2011.
