Hollywood stars Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher just welcomed their second child, a lovely baby boy. The proud parents already have one child together, a 2-year-old girl named Wyatt Isabelle.
So what have they decided to call their newest bundle of joy? Kunis recently confessed that she and Kutcher have been at odds over the name for their little one. On a recent episode of “Conan,” Kutcher shared a hilarious anecdote revealing his top name choice: “Hawkeye.” Is Kutcher a “M*A*S*H*” fan? (Hawkeye was the name of the wry physician played by Alan Alda in the TV series and Donald Sutherland in the movie version). Sort of! But Kutcher says that the real motivation comes from his fanatical support of University of Iowa sports teams, also known as the Hawkeyes.
Well, Kunis went ahead and nixed that idea right away! Kutcher said his wife wouldn’t go for it. But we’ll just have to wait on the actual name—they haven’t announced it yet.
As Hollywood baby names go, Hawkeye wouldn’t actually be all that strange or out of place. The stars are known for their untraditional choices. Here are some of the weirdest and wackiest baby names that celebs have come up with for their wee ones:
1. David Duchovny, who is starring in the much-anticipated remake of “Twin Peaks,” named his son “Kyd.”
(Although it seems that he prefers to call him “Mil,” short for his middle name “Miller.”)
2. Pete Wentz named his son “Saint Laszlo.”
He and girlfriend Meagan Camper say they named him that because he was a “saint” for waiting to be born until his daddy came home from touring with his band, Fall-Out Boy.
3) Lil’ Kim named her lil’ daughter “Royal Reign”!
4) Zooey Deschanel named her daughter “Elsie Otter.”
She says she chose the name because otters are adorable and funny creatures with a sweet spirit. Can’t argue with that! That choice is definitely in keeping with Deschanel’s quirky personality!
5) Alicia Silverstone named her son “Bear Blu.”
Hmm. Hey, whatever floats your boat.
