Celebrities love to get creative with their baby names. Wanting a unique and special moniker for your child is just fine, but there are times when celebs go a little overboard. Famous Hollywood stars most likely understand that their children won't go on to have average lives, so that means that they probably won't have to deal with any sort of bullying from their peers because of their unusual names. 

The unique name trend has been around Hollywood for a while now, and it doesn't seem like it's going away anytime soon. Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple, and while it turned some heads at the time, that name now pales in comparison to the names that celebrities have given their  babies since.

A new wave of celebrity parents have been taking it upon themselves to give their children some outlandish names that somehow become sort of normal after a while. The Kardashians have been no exception. Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West have three children together, and all of them have some rather out-of-the-box names--and we didn't expect any different from the creative rapper. 

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna also chose for their daughter a beautiful name that was definitely a little out of the norm, and some fans didn't like it at all. But it doesn't stop there. Other stars have joined them and given their babies some special names that will definitely make them stand out from the rest. Check out these strange celeb baby names that made us do a double take. 

Cardi B and husband, Offset, went all the way wild with their kid's name. 1

The rappers named their child Kulture Cephus, after her dad's group Migos' album Culture. They used the letter "K" for her name since her dad's real name is Kiari.

If you thought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's firstborn would have a traditional name, you were SO wrong. 2

Those two don't do anything average, so there was no doubt that their first child would be just as special as her parents. The couple chose North West as her name, and honestly, it was a bit weird to get used to when she was born in 2013, but we totally get it now.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z raised eyebrows when they decided to name their daughter Blue Ivy. Her first name was inspired by Rebecca Solnit's 2005 novel A Field Guide to Getting Lost, and her middle name "Ivy" was inspired by the roman numeral for the number 4 (IV), which is the couple's favorite number.

Kim and Kanye's son's name did cause some controversy. 4

When the pair revealed their son Saint West's name in December 2015, some people were not pleased. The couple reportedly chose that name since they considered him a "miracle baby" after Kim had trouble conceiving him before she got pregnant.

Khloé Kardashian has a great reason behind her daughter's name. 9

While many thought that the name True was inspired by the news that the baby's father, Tristan Thompson, had been unfaithful to Khloé during her pregnancy, that wasn't the case. Koko later revealed that it was inspired by her maternal grandfather, whose name was Robert True Houghton.

Beyoncé didn't settle when it came time to name her twins, either. 10

The One Direction singer and his then-girlfriend Cheryl Cole named their baby Bear!

"I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual. And the reason she chose Bear in the end was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room, you won’t forget. And I like that," he said in an interview with Total Access in 2017. "When I look at him, he’s just Bear. At first I wasn’t really having it. I was like, 'I’m not really sure. I don’t really understand.' Now I look at him and he’s Bear. You become your name as you get older anyway."
