Worst celeb baby names of 2008

12:0AM, Dec 16th 2008

Bronx Mowgli, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's son, is only one month old, but he's already been awarded a pretty big title: he's been voted as having the worst celebrity baby name of 2008.

A survey by US site babynames.com also found that Soleil Moon Frye – aka TV’s Punky Brewster – gave her daughter, Jagger Joseph Blue, the girl’s name that was most disliked.

It wasn’t all bad though: 5000 voters decided that Harlow Winter Kate, Nicole Ritchie and Joel Madden’s daughter, had the best girl’s name. 

American Idol
season 4 runner-up Bo Bice called his son Caleb James, which was voted as the best celeb boy name.

Babynames.com founder and CEO, Jennifer Moss, said, “Harlow Winter Kate is a glamorous name, without being too unusual. Caleb James is a solid, old-fashioned name - Biblical, but not overused.”

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s babies took out the title of best twins’ names with Max and Emme.

Voters were given a list of 72 names in order to find the results (read the full results here).
