Maybe because Christina Aguilera and Nicole Richie delivered their babies this past weekend, Bossy woke up wondering what Jennifer Lopez is going to name her Bay-Bay-Lo when it is finally born in another twenty-seven-and-a-half months.
Celebrities enjoy ample creative license when naming their children. The name can be delicious, like Bob Geldof’s Peaches, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Apple, or Sacha Baron Cohen’s Olive.
The name can be a place, like Ireland (Alec Baldwin) or Brooklyn (the Beckhams). Or it can be a place in time, like Memphis Eve (Bono).
It can be a body of water, like River (The Phoenix family) or Ocean (Forest Whitaker).
The name can be useful, like Satchel (Mia Farrow) or Moon Unit (Frank Zappa)—or the name can be fleeting, like a Rumor (Demi Moore) or a Chance (Larry King).
The name can make the baby an instant icon, like Angel (Eddie Murphy) or Princess (supermodel Jordan).
The name can be a color, like Amber (Simon LeBon) or Hazel (Julia Roberts). Or it can be many colors like Alice Cooper’s Calico.
The name can establish that the baby is born with a job, like Moxie Crimefighter (Penn Jillette) or Sailor Lee (Christie Brinkley). Or the name can determine an absence of a job, like Kyd (Tea Leoni).
The name can be a confusion of images, like Sage Moonblood (Sylvester Stallone) or Poppy Honey (Jamie Oliver).
And the baby’s name can even dkdkoe fkdoejr fkfkopepew like Prince Michael II/Blanket (Michael Jackson).
But what will J Lo & Marc Anthony name their baby? Bossy’s best guess is Marco Tho-lo.
