You won’t realise how much people from your past affect you until you have to pick a name for your child. All of a sudden, a classic name like David has significance ― you may dislike it but your hubby insists on using it. This is because your man wants to name your son after his grandfather, but it just happens to be the name of the guy you once had a huge crush on (he didn’t know you existed)!

 

As if it’s not hard enough to name one baby, imagine the stress parents-to-be feel when they have to find labels for twins or triplets. If you’re expecting multiples and want their names to stand out, who better to draw inspiration than from celeb parents?

 

Some are melodious yet meaningful, while others are just downright bizarre. Scroll through the photo gallery to find which you like best!

#1 Sir and Rumi

So possessive this power couple Beyoncé, 36, and Jay Z, 47, are of their twins that they actually trademarked their babies’ names ― Sir and Rumi Carter ― ahead of their June 2017 arrival. Statement monikers are common in the Carter household, judging from their firstborn’s name, Blue Ivy, who is now 5. While their son “Sir” was likely named with royalty in mind, the music mogul parents might have dug a little deeper into their faith for daughter “Rumi”. They possibly named her after the 13th century Persian poet Jamal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, best known for his writings about love, religion, and being of service to all people.

#2 Moroccan and Monroe

Even before she gave birth in 2011, pop diva Mariah Carey, 48, dropped hints that her twin babies would have names starting with the letter “M” to match mummy. When they arrived in style ― as one should when you’ve got Carey as a mum and rapper Nick Cannon, 37, as a dad ― the twins’ nifty names, Moroccan and Monroe, rocked the world. According to reports, Carey and her now ex-husband Cannon, named their daughter Monroe after their favourite legendary actress Marilyn Monroe. Their son’s name has a rather unusual backstory. Apparently, the top tier of Carey’s lavish New York apartment is called the “Moroccan room”, after its Mediterranean-inspired décor. This also happened to be the place where Cannon had popped the question. To mark this special occasion, mum and dad decided to name their little boy after that room. (Photo: Instagram/Mariah Carey

#3 Dae Han, Min Gook, and Man Se

They may be just aged 5, but South Korea’s most idolised triplet boys ― Dae Han, Min Gook and Man Se ― have been social media stars since the day they were born. Offspring of Korean actor Song Il Gook, 46, the terrific three shot to fame when they starred in reality programme, Return of Superman from 2014 to 2016, alongside daddy. In 2015, they raked in $4.26 million from product endorsements. It’s evident that the Song brothers make an unbeatable team, but did you also know that when you combine their names, it forms the popular phrase “Korea, hurray”? “I decided to go with that name because the name was stuck on my lips for 10 months,” shared a very patriotic Song when asked at an interview once on how he came up with his sons’ names.

#4 Hazel and Phinnaeus

When Hollywood actress Julia Roberts, 50, named her double blessings 13 years ago, her daughter Hazel escaped with a relatively “normal” name, but not her twin brother. Why? Because Roberts and her husband cameraman Danny Moder, 48, decided to get creative by christening their baby boy Phinnaeus (pronounced FIN-ee-əs)! Before you roll your eyes and dismiss it as yet another example of eccentric Hollywood names, the name does have significant roots. In Hebrew, Phinnaeus means “oracle” ― a female priest who gives people wise but often mysterious advice from God. Hazel and Phinnaues have a 10-year-old younger sibling with a regular name, Henry.

#5 Estere and Stella

Earlier this year, singer Madonna, 59, added four-year-old twin sisters Estere and Stella, to her brood. She had adopted them from an orphanage in Malawi, Africa. While the material girl stuck to her daughters’ original birth names, she decided to add a dash of glamour to one of their monikers, swapping Esther for its Persian derivative, Estere. The twins join their new siblings David and Mercy, both 11, and also adopted from Malawi, plus Madonna’s biological children,  Rocco, 17, and Lourdes, 20. (Photo: Instagram/Madonna

#6 D'Lila Star and Jessie James

He may have changed his name for the nth time, but Sean “Diddy” Combs (now known as Brother Love but answered to Puffy Daddy and P Diddy in the past), has managed to give his twin girls pretty cool names ― and stuck to it! D’Lila and Jessie James, 11, whom the-artist-formerly-known-as-Diddy fathered with then girlfriend Kim Porter, may have unconventional names, but the significance behind it is rather traditional. “In honour of the two people to have incredibly impacted me and Kim's lives, we're proud to announce that we are naming the twins after our beloved grandmothers,” Brother Love announced in his MySpace page in 2006, after the birth of his babies. The 48-year-old rapper has four other children with two different women, Chance, 11, Christian, 19, Justin, 23, and Quincy Brown, 26. (Photo: Daily Mail)

#7 Violet Moon and Knox Blue

It was a literal homecoming for twins Violet and Knox Blue, 2, who arrived into the world via a homebirth, thanks to mum and actress Sarah Shahi, 37, a natural birth advocate. Best known for her role in the TV series Person of Interest, Shahi is married to fellow actor Steve Howey, 40. The couple have an older son Wolf, 8.  “Names are tough because one person loves it and another person hates it, but these kids were not going to be named Steve or Michael or anything like that,” Howey said in an interview. The couple named their firstborn Wolf because they wanted to go with an animal name and preferred colours for a girl, but ended up giving one to their baby boy as well, “just to add to the ‘old timey’ feel,” adds Howey.
