Hollywood Unusual Baby Names: Surprising Celeb Naming Trends

Famous people not only impress us with their skills but also surprise us by picking uncommon names for their kids. This trend of unique celebrity baby names seems to be sticking around, bringing a new burst of creativity with each newborn. Let’s explore some of the most unusual celebrity baby names, where they ditch the usual and let creativity lead the way.

1. Techno Mechanicus, Exa Dark Sideræl, and X Æ A-Xii

Parents: Grimes and Elon Musk

Elon Musk and Grimes picked unique names for their kids, and their newest one, Techno Mechanicus, keeps that trend going. They got the idea from a game called Warhammer 40000, making the name interesting but a bit nerve-wracking to say. Grimes explained that Exa Dark Sideræl means a mix of a supercomputing term (exaFLOPS) and a hint of something unknown, represented by ‘Dark.’ X Æ A-Xii, said as X Ash A 12, is Elon Musk’s way of imagining a character from a story about Saturn.

2. North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm

Parents: Kim Kardashian and Ye (formerly known as Kanye West)
