There's a lot in a name
Beti B might have to wait a while to be christened, but Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have wasted no time in announcing their son's name -- Azad Rao KhanBeti B might have to wait a while to be christened, but Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao have wasted no time in announcing their son's name -- Azad Rao Khan. CS lists out some other celebrity kids' names that have been rather hatke:
>> Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's daughter is called Apple. And though Gwyneth's dad suggested the name, the choice was quite random. Explaining the name in an interview, Gwyn said, "I just thought it sounded so sweet and it conjures such a lovely picture for me. You know apples are so sweet and they're wholesome. The name's Biblical too."
>> Courteney Cox and David Arquette named their daughter Coco. They originally wanted to call the baby Courteney Cox Arquette, but this went against David's Jewish tradition. So, they named her Coco, a combination of Courtney Cox, and a nickname Courteney had as a kid.
>> David Duchovny and Tea Leoni seem like one unimaginative couple. They've called their son Kyd. We wonder what he'll do once he ceases to be a kid.
>> John Travolta and Kelly Preston have a son named Jett. And we all know how much John loves flying.
>> Nicolas Cage named his boy Kal-el. Because Nicolas took his stage name of Cage from the comic book character Luke Cage, he decided to name his son Kal-el after one of his favorite comic book heroes. Kal-el is Superman's kryptonian name.
>> Stevie Wonder christened his son Mandla Kadjaly Carl Stevland. But it's not as meaningless as it sounds. Mandla means powerful in Zulu, while Kadjaly means born from
God in Swahili.
