When I got pregnant with my first baby, I was confident that I was having a girl. The day I learned the gender, as I laid with cold goop on my baby bump listening to my baby’s heartbeat on the machine next to me, the nurse asked, “Do you want to know the gender?” Of course, I said yes! And then she announced, “I see a penis!” I cried. My tears were not sad tears, of course. I just didn’t expect to be having a boy, which I know is silly.

When I got pregnant with my first baby, I was confident that I was having a girl. The day I learned the gender, as I laid with cold goop on my baby bump listening to my baby’s heartbeat on the machine next to me, the nurse asked, “Do you want to know the gender?” Of course, I said yes! And then she announced, “I see a penis!”

I cried.

My tears were not sad tears, of course. I just didn’t expect to be having a boy, which I know is silly. Among other thoughts that ran through my mind, I realized none of my chosen girl names would do me any good. Now it was time to think of boy names!

Baby Names Gone Wild!

Celebrities often pave the path for unique baby names. Some of them are pretty cool. Others are simply bizarre. Take Elon Musk, for example. He just named his son X Æ A-12. Yes, this is NOT a typo. It’s pronounced X Ash A Twelve. This is way too futuristic for my taste but somehow fitting for the son of the man who created Tesla and SpaceX Rocketships.

Many other celebrities have come up with baby boy names that could be considered cool, weird, or interesting, depending on your perception. Here are some unique celebrity baby boy names:

  • Ace: Jessica Simpson’s son
  • Axl: Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s
  • Gideon: Neil Patrick Harris
  • Bear: Alicia Silverstone
  • Reign: Kourtney Kardashian
  • Cash: Joshua and Tobe Morrow
  • Wyatt: Sheryl Crow
  • Silas: Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel (I wonder if they watched the show Weeds?)
  • Ocean: Forest Whitaker
  • KAL-EL: Nicolas Cage (Yes, as in Superman – This reminds me of one of my favorite shows my husband and sister got me into – Smallville)

Most non-celebrity people may not be able to get away with naming their son after Superman and opt for a more “normal” baby boy name. Don’t worry. You can still give your son a cool baby boy name without having to resort to the wild side of baby naming. Keep reading for the coolest baby boy name ideas.
