    Default Chris Martin defends weird baby names



    Coldplay's Chris Martin doesn't see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.
    The 31-year-old rocker ó who named his son Moses and daughter Apple ó tells the new issue of Blender: "People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands.
    "Thereís nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if thatís what you want to call your baby," he goes on. "Itís no stranger than Sarah."
    He says, "a name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f--k what everyone else says."

    Martin and wife Gwyneth Paltrow may need to think of more names soon.
    Asked about getting pregnant again, the actress, 35, told July's Harper's Bazaar, "I may force myself to do it one more time because the result is so worth it.
    "My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time."
    She said she and Martin (who recently admitted he had a tough time with girls before he met Paltrow) are even open to adopting.
    "I do feel we're so fortunate, and we kind of owe it to humanity," Paltrow told the magazine. "We have a lot of love to give and a lot of resources."

    It's absolutely his right to name his kid whatever he wants. Just like it's our right to mock and ridicule those who saddle their children with ridiculous names. Or when they spell name cr8tively or yooneekly. Phonetically, it's the same name. The only difference is that they will spend a lifetime correcting the spelling of their name in print and such.

    The Martin's kids' names aren't so bad, but I've heard some actor named their kid Audio Science and another was Moxie Banjo or some other lameass moniker. I just wish these people would remember that one day their kids are going to be kids on the playground, and other kids can be ruthless. One day they'll be adults, trying to function in a workplace environment who need to be taken seriously.

    'Sunday' and 'Honor' are not so bad..makes me think of Tuesday Weld and Honor Blackman.

    Um, if you say so.

    Sunday and Honor are OK names. I don't even mind Moses (actually I was just relieved they didn't name the boy Capone). Apple is stupid, but Hollywood has a lot worse. Chewbacca would be beyond the pale

    Yes, I'm sure PissyPanties FecalFace Martin will still feel the same way once she gets into school.

    What the hell does this idiot "Chris" know, anyway? His name is one of the top 10 names given to male children. He'll never know how people will mangle, misspell, mispronounce, or ridicule an unusual name. This seems like the typical airhead artiste approach to things.

    If he thinks that names are meaningless he should change his name to Chewbacca and not to burden a child who has no choice with a stupid name.

    I think I'll call him Chewbacca from now on. Or Idiot actually.

    The thing is, these are CHILDREN. Not accessories, not pets. Sure, they can name them whatever they want, but they are human beings who will have to live with that name until they die--or at least are able to legally change it to something less f*cking stupid.

    Such a good perspective. People can name their kids anything they want, but they should think of the implications. My niece has a common name with an unusual spelling, and when she was a kid, she was always really bummed when she went to a store where they had names on things and she could never find something with her name on it. For kids, that stuff matters. And seriously, who wants to be called Audio Science or Pilot Inspektor or Moxie Crimefighter? They make Rumer, Scout and Tallulah sound absolutely normal. I can understand parents not wanting their kid to be 1 of 5 in the class with the same name, but trying so hard to be completely unique is ridiculous. They are humans, not pets.

    All that being said, I think Sunday and Honor are unique without being over the top.

    ^Yeah, Sunday and Honor aren't too bad. They're not STUPID, just unusual.
