- Rihanna and A$AP Rocky recently revealed their second son is called Riot Rose
- But other famous faces have also given their kids unusual names over the years
- Gwyneth Paltrow, Nick Cannon and Amber Heard are all among the culprits
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky once again added to the growing celebrity trend of giving children unusual names following the birth of their second son.
The Diamonds hitmaker, 35, and the rapper, 34, recently revealed that their newborn is called Riot Rose Mayers in what appears to be a nod to A$AP’s song Riot – from earlier this year – which featured Pharrell Williams.
But it isn’t the first time the lovebirds have assigned a unique moniker to their offspring with their first son, born in May 2022, named RZA Athelston Mayers.
And they aren’t the only A-list parents to give their children atypical names.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky once again added to the growing celebrity trend of giving children unusual names following the birth of their second son
Stars like Gwyneth Paltrow started the trend in the early 2000s when she famously called her daughter Apple.
Now, the names have only gotten more unique as celebrities seemingly try to one-up each other.
Nick Cannon, Ashley Tisdale and Amber Heard are all among the culprits – with many seemingly having little rhyme or reason.
Here, DailyMail.com unveils the list of the most unique celebrity baby names.
Nick Cannon’s brood includes Golden Sagon, Beautiful Zeppelin and Rise Messiah
Nick Cannon, 42, has famously fathered 12 kids and each of them has an extremely unique name
The unusual names of Nick Cannon’s 12 kids
- Golden Sagon
- Powerful Queen
- Zion Mixolydian
- Zillion Heir
- Legendary Love
- Onyx Ice Cole
- Rise Messiah
- Beautiful Zeppelin
- Halo Marie
Nick Cannon, 42, has famously fathered 12 kids and each of them has an extremely unique name.
Two of them – Moroccan and Monroe – were with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
‘Moroccan and Monroe was real cool because that’s what Mariah and I came up with,’ he told The Shade Room.
‘The Moorish Moroccan vibe was always something we talked about. And then Monroe, Mariah loves Marilyn Monroe. And then we call them Roc and Roe, sounds like Rock n’ Roll, so that was always cool.’
He also shares Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen, and Rise Messiah with Brittany Bell.
‘Then, there was Golden, who really is like the golden child. [That] kid is a genius,’ he explained of the eldest’s name.
He then shared that they wanted to give the younger two children names that fit with Golden.
‘And then, his sister is Powerful, Powerful Queen, so [their] names kind of go together, as well as the youngest of me and Brittany’s children, Rise, so it’s like all of those names kind of go together,’ he explained.
He has also fathered three children with ex Abby De La Rosa named Zion Mixolydian, Zillion Heir and Beautiful Zeppelin.
‘With Abby… her name starts with an A, she wanted to have children with Z names, so it was like, Zion and Zillion,’ Nick continued.
‘And then, we were gonna go Zeppelin for our daughter, ’cause it was gonna be all three [Z names], but I was like, “She’s so beautiful. That’s her name. It was like, Beautiful Zeppelin.”‘
The A-lister also shares three kids – Golden Sagon, Powerful Queen, and Rise Messiah – with Brittany Bell
For his child with Breana Tiesi, the name Legendary Love came naturally for him.
‘[It was like], what we are doing is legendary. We got legendary love,’ he said. ‘We call him LL.’
Cannon has also welcomed a baby with LaNisha Cole who the couple called Onyx Ice.
‘And then with LaNisha, who is a strong Black woman and loves her chocolate-ness and all that, she had the name Onyx [already]. I was like, “I’m with it, let’s get it!” And then I threw on the “ice cold,”‘ he explained of the name.’
Nick has also had two children with Alyssa Scott. Their first son, Zen – whose name he claimed was ‘so meaningful’ – passed away at five months old.
But this inspired the name of their next child, Halo Marie.
‘We got to have a rainbow baby after that, that we got a chance to name Halo. So, it all comes together, it all makes sense,’ he explained.
Actress Amber Heard revealed her daughter’s name as Oonagh Paige in a nod to Irish folklore
Amber proudly revealed that she had a baby on her own in 2021 and also shared her baby’s unique name – Oonagh Paige Heard
Actress Amber Heard proudly revealed that she had a baby on her own in 2021 and also shared her baby’s unique name – Oonagh Paige Heard.
The now 37-year-old wrote at the time: ‘I’m so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child. I wanted to do it on my own terms.
‘I now appreciate how radical it is for us as women to think about one of the most fundamental parts of our destinies in this way. I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib.’
She continued: ‘A part of me wants to uphold that my private life is none of anyone’s business.
‘I also get that the nature of my job compels me to take control of this. My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.’
In Irish folklore, Oonagh was the Queen of Fairies, with long, golden hair that flowed to the ground.

Her daughter’s middle name also has significance. She revealed in 2020 that her mother – named Paige – had passed away.
‘I am heartbroken and devastated beyond belief at the loss of my mom, Paige Heard. She left us too early, clasping onto the memory of her beautiful, gentle soul.
‘She will be missed from the very depths of our hearts forever,’ she wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
‘Her unflinching, open heart made her the most beautiful woman I had ever known.
‘It’s hard to imagine and even more difficult to say but I feel truly lucky to have been her daughter and been given the gift of having the light she shone on everyone, fall on me for nearly 34 years.’
Elon Musk and singer Grimes welcomed X AE A-XII, Exa Dark Sideræl and Tau Techno Mechanicus
Elon Musk and singer Grimes gave each of their children very unusual names of X AE A-XII, Exa Dark Sideræl and Tau Techno Mechanicus
Entrepreneur Elon Musk, 52, and singer Grimes, 35, gave each of their children very unusual names.
They welcomed X AE A-XII into the world in 2020 – with fans not only confused about how to pronounce the name but also about its meaning.
Addressing some of the backlash, Grimes took to Twitter in an attempt to explain what each symbol in her son’s name meant.
She explained that ‘X’ is ‘the unknown variable,’ ‘Æ’ is ‘my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)’, ‘A-12’ is a ‘precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft)’ which she claimed had ‘no weapons, no defenses, just speed, great in battle, but non-violent’ and then ‘+(A=Archangel, my favorite song).’
They then had a daughter in 2022 named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk.
‘Exa is a reference to the supercomputing term exaFLOPS (the ability to perform 1 quintillion floating-point operations per second),’ she previously explained to a Variety journalist.
The couple welcomed a daughter together in 2022 named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk
‘Dark, meanwhile, is the unknown. People fear it but truly it’s the absence of photons. Dark matter is the beautiful mystery of our universe.’
She then reportedly sent a voice memo with the pronunciation of Sideræl—’sigh-deer-ee-el’ – which she called ‘a more elven’ spelling of sidereal.
Sidereal means ‘the true time of the universe, star time, deep space time, not our relative earth time.’ It’s also a nod to her favorite Lord of the Rings character, the powerful Galadriel, who ‘chooses to abdicate the ring.’
Grimes even admitted that in spite of this creative name, she had really wanted to name her daughter Odysseus.
Eventually, she changed her daughter’s name to Y while their son is commonly nicknamed X.
Just this week, Elon revealed that he has a previously undisclosed third child with Grimes.
In a post on X late Saturday, he confirmed the son’s name is Tau Techno Mechanicus, or Tau for short, after a book review in the New York Times first disclosed the child’s existence.

‘Then she said Atlas and I looked at Matte, and he looked at me, and I was like, “Oh my gosh!” It’s just the perfect name.’
Shay not only travels frequently with Matte but also owns a travel accessory line.
She then gave her second daughter, born in 2022, a name that was not only inspired by travel but a family member.

‘Losing the most important person in my life in the same year I welcomed my second daughter has shifted everything for me,’ she penned.

WWE diva Brie Bella, 39, is used to hearing unusual monikers in the ring so it is no surprise that she chose an equally intriguing name for her son – Buddy Dessert.
It represents influential figures in both her and her husband Bryan Danielson’s lives.
‘We named our son Buddy because he’s named after his late grandfather,’ Brie told People.
‘Bryan’s dad (who died in 2014) really wanted a grandson, and unfortunately, he’s not alive to see that. But Bryan also really wanted a son to carry on the Danielson name. So we thought, “How special to be named after his late grandfather?”‘
She then explained where ‘dessert’ comes from.
Their older daughter was given the name Birdie Joe as Brie also wanted to incorporate her family into the little girl’s name
She explained: ‘I wanted Buddy to have something of my grandmother. Her last name, her maiden name, is Dessert. When you look at it, people are going to say Dessert, because it’s French. But it’s pronounced “desert.”‘
Their older daughter was given the name Birdie Joe as Brie also wanted to incorporate her family into the little girl’s name.
‘My husband’s only request was that we name all of our children with B names,’ she said.
‘His whole family are Bs and I’m a B, so he really wanted our kids to be Bs. From there, we wanted a nature-inspired name and that’s how we decided on Birdie. Her middle name is Joe after my grandfather who meant the world to me.’

The Glee star has been very vocal about her mother-son bond and even recorded a lullaby album for him featuring covers from different artists including Fleetwood Mac, Guns N Roses and Christina Perri.
‘As an artist, I’ve always loved the idea of making a lullaby album, but throughout my pregnancy and this year with my baby, that passion has grown even more,’ she told PEOPLE.
‘Whether I was singing songs to [Ever] or playing music for him in my belly, music was my way of communicating with him to let him know that everything was going to be fine.’
She also has admitted that becoming a mother has ‘softened’ her.
‘I feel like it definitely has softened me a lot, and I probably could have used a little softening. [Ever] really is just the thing that has changed me the most,’ she told Extra.
