In Hollywood, it’s almost as if there’s an unspoken battle of which stars can come up with the most exotic names for their kids. With names like North, Saint, Apple and Blue Ivy flying around La La Land, competition is fierce for soon-to-be mommies and daddies who are looking to really shake things up.

We know what you’re thinking… why all the fuss? Well, for some celebs, it’s more than just a name, it’s an extension of their brand and legacy.
