Beyonce has shared the first picture of herself with her twins to celebrate them turning one month old.

The US singer also confirmed they are called Sir Carter and Rumi - which had been rumoured after she and husband Jay-Z filed a trademark for the names.

The picture showed the 35-year-old mother-of-three and the twins draped in a purple floral sheet, while she wore a blue veil.

If you go all the way to LA or New York . . . its kind of a superficial thing

I'm not sure you can copyright Rumi.  :-\



Anyway, I'm not a huge of the name "Sir Carter", but I guess it's marginally better than Jamie Oliver naming his kids Daisy Boo and Poppy Honey, David Duchovny naming his son Kyd, or, worst of all, Nick Cage naming his his kid Kal-El and Jermaine Jackson naming one of his Jermajesty.  Those last two take the cake in my book.  If you're enough of a nerd to name your kid Kal-El, you deserve to be tortured with bees.

At least there probably won't be another Kal-El in class, and those kids nerdy enough to know the meaning are more likely to be like 'respect!'. Quite unlike the case of North West and her bro Saint.

I think you can convince most people that it's a Hebrew name.

I have heard of people who named a child "Asherah" because it is a biblical name and sounded beautiful to them.

Jermajesty

This has always been my favorite one. It deserves to be the biggest, most-eye catching name in this thread.

Naming that beautiful baby "North West" was downright criminal.  Saint isn't too bad compared to the other names in this thread.  Not to mention Jason Leigh naming his kid Pilot and Gwyneth Paltrow and that Coldplay cat naming their kid Apple.

One couple named their kid Metallica. Another named their kid Lego. Now that second one is a name I can get behind!

As egregious as these celeb kid names are, I'm not overly thrilled with the trend of non-celebs naming their kids stupid things like Brax, Teigen, Clementine, or anything they mined from the turn of the 19th century.

Eh, without Christian names, what do you expect? People are thrown on their own devices and matters quickly become desperate. It's of a piece with the rest of the growing insanity in post-Reformation society.

Meh. Much preferrable to naming every child after their grandparent or whatever.

I disagree.  Much better to have a kid in your family named after his Grandpa than after some character in the gay steampunk graphic novel hipster daddy carries around in the high school backpack he still carries at the age of 27.  The less three-year-olds named Adelaide and Phineas we have toddling around in ironic flannel and intifada scarves in 21st century America, the better.

I mean from Europe. Actually, I don't think Phineas is common in any traditional Christian ethnicity in Europe -- it's more likely to have been popularized by English Puritans when they came up with their rules for naming their children (how the name Hallelujah entered into Parliamentary history). Adelaide, on the other hand, is very traditional in German-speaking countries and comes from a Western saint.

Oh, so "Hey how" was meant to be "Hey now"?

At any rate, yes, I'm aware that both of those names have their origins with the Christian religion - unlike some of the names I cited in my earlier post - I'm just saying that the whole "Let's find a quirky name!" fad is as irksome as any of the perceived infractions made by celebrities in this thread.

Right. And the hipsters naming their child Barnabas aren't doing it out of either love of the Saint or to honor the grandfathers and the cycle of generations. So in the end it's just another wind of unrest.

My kids have relatively rare names, but they were all chosen for meaning rather than quirk factor.

I've enjoyed the Mickey taking pictures from other mothers of twins looking... less serene.

Beyonce has shared the first picture of herself with her twins to celebrate them turning one month old.

The US singer also confirmed they are called Sir Carter and Rumi - which had been rumoured after she and husband Jay-Z filed a trademark for the names.

The picture showed the 35-year-old mother-of-three and the twins draped in a purple floral sheet, while she wore a blue veil.

Oh, its worse than just Pilot; his name is Pilot Inspektor. Yes, that is the correct spelling.

I think Frank Zappa continues to win the prize on weird baby names. I can't imagine calling a cute little baby Moon Unit, Diva Muffin, or Dweezil. I think Ahmet is tame in comparison to those names.

Dweezil is actually Ian Donald Calvin Euclid, and Ahmet was named after a music executive that Frank admired.

I think Frank Zappa continues to win the prize on weird baby names. I can't imagine calling a cute little baby Moon Unit, Diva Muffin, or Dweezil. I think Ahmet is tame in comparison to those names.

Dweezil is actually Ian Donald Calvin Euclid, and Ahmet was named after a music executive that Frank admired.

So what's the explanation for the other two?

He demanded to have his name legally changed to Dweezil once he found out at age 5.

The hospitals didn't refuse to have those names used? Because that is the only reason Dweezil legally had a different name for the first 5 years of his life.

Diva apparently earned her name by being insufferably loud. Nothing offered on Moon.

In case you were curious, Stormi Bree and Lucky Blue Smith named their daughter Gravity Blue Smith.

I think you can convince most people that it's a Hebrew name.

I have heard of people who named a child "Asherah" because it is a biblical name and sounded beautiful to them.
I've attended a Laodiceia, maybe for the same reason.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."
