The best celebrity girl’s name was Willow Sage Hart, the daughter of singer Pink and motocross star Carey Hart.

The best celebrity boy’s name was Mason Evan Smith, son of rapper/actor Ne-Yo and his girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.

While the name Moroccan was not a hit Mariah Carey’s choice of the name Monroe for her daughter was popular with voters.

Other famous faces to disappoint with their choices include rock star Bryan Adams who called his daughter Mirabella Bunny.


Actor Kevin James’ son Kannon is also on the list.

Celebrities giving their children unusual monikers is nothing new but in recent years there has been a trend for even more outrageous names.

Jennifer Moss, founder of the website BabyNames.com said some of those chosen by celebrity parents have a chance of becoming popular.

“Celebrity parents have a huge influence on baby name trends,” said Jennifer Moss.

“As long as the names aren’t too far out, you could see celebrity-chosen names hitting the top ten within a year.”

Jennifer Moss said the girl’s name Harper, chosen by David Beckham and his wife Victoria for their daughter, is now number ten on the most popular baby names of 2011.
