Let’s face it: When it comes to baby names, celebrities aren’t just like us. Whether it’s for media attention or they simply have a taste for quirkier things, it seems that stars are consistently calling their children the most bizarre names imaginable. While this trend was definitely brought to the forefront of modern pop culture by Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin (who named their two kids Apple and Moses), it’s been happening for awhile now (rocker Frank Zappa famously named his daughter Moon Unit in 1967)—and definitely isn’t slowing down.
