What is it about celebrities that leads so many of them to come up with such strange and indulgent- I mean such wonderfully creative- baby names?Our culture looks up to celebrities- even kinda- what’s the word- celebrates them. When millions of people believe you are special, you probably start to believe it to. And so naturally believe your children will be extra unique as well- and so deserve a name just as unique as they are…
