11 Celebrities Who Gave Their Children Food And Nature-Inspired Names

Sometimes I can't help but wonder if there's an extra special perk famous people get for giving their children unusual names.

Sure, I understand a parent's need to give their kids special and unique names so they can stand out in a world filled with Johns and Janes, but some of these celebrities take it to a whole another level.

Stars like Kim Karadshian and Kanye West named their daughters Chicago and North, while others like singer Toni Braxton seemed to have named her kids, Denim Cole and Diezel Ky, after a popular jean brand and the material they make their clothes with.

Then there are the celebrity parents who found inspiration in food and nature. From Olive to Ocean, here are 11 celebrity baby names that sound delicious and outdoorsy:

1. Apple Martin

I can't help but think of a cocktail every time I hear Apple Martin's name. Turns out, Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin weren't exactly original by picking such an unusual name. The now-divorced couple got the inspiration for their first child's moniker from a friend.

According to Access Hollywood, Martin's booking agent has a daughter named Apple and the couple asked him for permission to name their child the same if the baby turns out to be a girl.

They then opted for Blythe and Alison, which are the names of Paltrow and Martin's mothers, as the child's middle names.

2. Coco Arquette


Courtney Cox and David Arquette's daughter's name isn't exactly spelled like the cocoa plant, but it still makes us think of food, specifically chocolate, whenever we see it.

The former married couple actually had a different inspiration for their firstborn's name.

It's sort of an abbreviation of 'COurtney COx' … 'CoCo'" Arquette explained on Lopez Tonight.

3. Olive Kopelman


Olive is certainly one of the more common names on this list, but even so, the only Olive I knew while growing up was Popeye the Sailor's wife.

Drew Barrymore and her ex-husband ,Will Kopelman, fell in love with the name they gave to their oldest child after coming across it in a pregnancy book that contained a lot of fruit and vegetable terminologies.

"I never would have guessed that would have been the name," the actress told Ellen DeGeneres. "But I was reading a book with my husband. I was three months pregnant and they said your baby is the size of an olive, and that was it. We never looked back."

4. Huckleberry Grylls


Man vs Wild host Bear Grylls has a name that's unforgettable, and he wanted to make sure that his youngest son's name will also be just as memorable.

The nature expert and adventurer's choice of name for his son is fitting as Huckleberry was the name of the main character in Mark Twain's book Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

The moniker comes from a small North American berry that's similar to a blueberry.

5. Clover Watson


Natalie Wood's daughter, Natasha Gregson Wagner, wasn't just going to settle for an ordinary name when it came to her little girl.

The actress and her husband, Barry Watson, named their first child together Clover Clementyne. The kid's first name was inspired by Inside Daisy Clover, a 1965 film starring Wagner’s late mother, the legendary Wood.

6. Poppy, Daisy, Petal & River Oliver

Celebrity Chef, TV star and author Jamie Oliver is known for giving his children unusual names. The oldest of the Oliver children is Poppy Honey Rosie. Their second and third children are named Daisy Boo Pamela and Petal Blossom Rainbow, while their two young boys are called Buddy Bear Maurice and River Rocket Blue Dallas.

River's name is believed to be an ode to River Cafe, the restaurant where Oliver was working when BBC discovered him.

Oliver's wife, Juliette "Jools" Norton opened up about the My Little Pony-esque names that they gave their daughters in an interview Telegraph U.K.

"They all have more than one name because I couldn’t decide," she admitted. As for Buddy, she simply said "it was quite fun choosing a boy's name, but never revealed why they they settled on it.

7. Sage Stallone

E! News

Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Moonblood, died nearly six years ago from a heart attack, but his unique name lives on.

Sage is derived from an Old French word that means "wise," but these days it is more commonly known as the aromatic plant whose leaves are used as a culinary herb.

8. Peaches Geldof


Unfortunately, Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof-Cohen also passed away in 2014 from a heroin overdose.

It's unclear what made Geldof and his ex-wife Paula Yates pick the fruit-inspired name, but a few years before Peaches's untimely death, she opened up about what it's like to have such a different name.

"I hate ridiculous names, my weird name has haunted me all my life," said the late model and columnist.

9. Maple Bateman


Little House on the Prairie actor Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka wanted a safe choice for their firstborn, Francesca Nora, but in 2012, they went in a completely different direction when picking a name for their second child.

They settled on Maple Sylvie, which although unusual, does have a nice, sweet ring to it.

10. Autumn and Ocean Whitaker

Hi Likes

Two of the Oscar-winning actor's children have very unorthodox names, possibly inspired by their father's favorite aspects of nature.

Then again, we shouldn't really be surprised by these monikers because their dad is named Forest.

11. Bluebell Madonna

Celebs Now

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell knew exactly what she wanted to name her daughter after a conversation with her mother.

“What really clinched it for me was my mother telling me that the bluebell is increasingly rare, so it’s a precious flower, which seemed just right for my daughter,” she said in an interview.

As for the middle name? It's partly inspired by Virgin Mary and pop icon Madonna.
