There has been a bit of a trend over the years, where celebrities have decided to give their children some rather interesting and unique names, which has ultimately led to the general public following suit and a generation of uniquely named children. When it comes to giving your children odd and unusual names, there are none better than actress Busy Philipps, who seems to have nailed the technique.
For those of you who do not know much about the personal life of Busy Philipps, the actress has two daughters with her husband Marc Silverstein, and the couple have certainly chosen rather unique names for their girls. In August 2008, Busy gave birth to her first daughter, who they named Birdie, before Philipps then had their second daughter in June 2013, who they named Cricket.
There is no denying that those are two of the most unique names of celebrity children that we have ever heard, so how does someone come up with such names? Well, it seems that the idea was that Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein would give their children names that sounded like nicknames, rather than names that would be changed into nicknames. After Busy is a nickname for Elizabeth.
There have been many people who have criticised Busy Philipps for giving her children "weird" names, with some going as far as to claim that they will eventually need therapy because of it. That is just absolutely ridiculous and, while we prefer more traditional names, we are all for people calling their children whatever they like. A name does not define who you!
