Blue Ivy Voted Worst Baby Name of 2012
It seems like Bey’s fans aren’t too happy with the unique name she and husband Jay-Z chose for their baby girl. According to theGrio.com BabyNames.com polledits 2,000 members and they voted Blue Ivy the worst celebrity baby girl name of the last year. The worst boy name was Lion (son of Malia Jones and Alex O’Loughlin).
A whopping 47.1 percent of BabyNames.com users didn’t like the couple’s choice. The parents favored more traditional picks like Charlotte Grace for Jenn Schefft’s daughter and Luca Cruz, Hillary Duff’s son for a boy. Celebrities have long been known to give their kids names no one else in their kindergarten class will have, like Erykah Badu’s choices Puma and Mars for her daughters or Seven for her son with Andre 3000.
Jennifer Moss, founder and CEO of BabyNames.com, notices celebrities getting a little less creative. “I think celebrities are becoming a little more sensitive to the fact that the child has to live with his or her name,” she told press.
