What’s your funny name, baby? – A best of the best from east and west of the Atlantic!

Back in the day we had a list of the most famous names for new-born Germans and Americans. Since this list doens’t change so much from year to year – Marie is and was a classic – we decided to present some more nice finds.

The folks of Chantalismus collect and publish some of the nicest names – found in the real world. The name of the blog itself is a word-play on a popular name in Germany (Chantalle) and our idea of making nouns from everything. Just add the affix -ismus. So here’s another transatlanticismus – in other words: a list of three.

1. Sometimes parents name their children after the celebrities they like. Here are four of one family: Joséphine-Geneviève Máxima, Paul-Frédérique Albrecht, Max-Bénédict Ebert and Franz-Xaviér Tünnes

2. One for the transatlantic friendship: Lynette California (We also recommend San Francisco Smith)

3. And here’s one for parents who like alliterations: Justin Jason Joseph

So you see: After the people west of the Atlantic have always been a bit more creative, the other side of the Atlantic catches up.

We like the name of actor Jason Lee’s son. His name is Pilot Inspektor. For a top 10 of the most unusual celebrity baby names check out this link. Guess who named his child Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen…?
