Baby Names Gone Wild

Lots of celebrity babies being born lately. Last week both Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey's girlfriend, Camilla Alves gave birth. Nicole Kidman had a daughter named Sunday Rose, continuing the celebrity trend of giving children strange names, apparently Sunday is the name of an Australian artist that no one has ever heard of. Sunday Rose is really pretty, and I suggest that little Sunday use her whole name, otherwise, she'll be Sunday Urban which sounds like a section of the newspaper.

While McConaughey and his girlfriend named their baby Levi, which is Hebrew for 'combined.' Levi was the name of one of the sons of Jacob. His descendants, the Levites, were the priests of Israel. Of course, they could just have named the baby after their favorite jeans. At least he didn't name the baby after a brand of beer like his brother Rooster, who named one of his kids, Miller Lyte (I'm not kidding). I'm hoping that Rooster isn't his real name, cause that would be weird. I mean why would you name one child Matthew and another after a male chicken? I suppose Rooster's kids should be happy that daddy doesn't like imported beer because otherwise they might be named Heineken, Amstel, Corona or Guinness. Seriously why not just name your child Fritos and Pringles and get it over with?

At least its better than Nic Cage who gave his son, Superman's real name Kar-El, or Jason Lee who named his child Pilot Inspektor. Now, Brad Pitt and Angelina have named their new son Knox Leon, after Fort Knox? The jello? What? Vivienne Marcheline is very pretty and feminine and very French. At least they didn't name the baby Napoleon!

Yeah, and I'm sure the kids at school, who he gets into fights with, think its funny too. Seriously people, give your kids normal names.
