BBN News: Peaches & Fuschia Set Off For Fame

Peaches Geldof and Fuschia Sumner pursue their own fame

Peaches Geldof (17), and Fuschia Sumner (24), are trying to win fame for themselves outside of their unusual names. Peaches is the daughter of Sir Bob Geldof (singer of the band The Boomtown Rats and most famous as the organizer of the benefit concert "Live Aid" in the 1980's) and the late Paula Yates, a British celebrity. She has worked in the past as a DJ and formed her own band, Cosmetique, which is already said to be garnering the attention of record labels. Fuschia (daughter of musician Sting and ex-wife Frances Tomelty), made her acting debut in the play Pack Of Lies and will be starring in the upcoming film Stardust.

Dear Zen Angel:

Hey there. Love the blog, it cracks me up into hysterics- I actually know a Diamond, and the name does suit her, however- we just call her Dee a lot.

However, I also met a small girl when I subbed in an school called "Malelelele." Nice kid... Horrible name.

(please sign as) Bailey



Wow, Malelelele is a
MOUTHFUL name if I've ever seen one!

Thanks for reading!

BAD BABY NAMES 37: Dial V For...



Anianna Z'El
This first name is basically "Annie Anna." Blech. And the middle name? Was that one of Jor-El's second cousins?

Diamond Cherie
"My Diamond Cherie Amour..."

Sky Nevaeh
Now, longtime readers of this blog know quite well my dislike of the pseudo-name Nevaeh. But let's put that aside for a moment, and consider this name: Nevaeh is basically Heaven backwards, correct? So Sky Nevaeh is pretty much the same as saying, "Above, Not Above"?

Tedavius Jakaine-Jelleasheion
Most MOUTHFUL names I come across are for girls. Here's one for the blue team!

And hot on the heels of a male MOUTHFUL name, comes a masculine REDNECK HALL OF SHAME name!

Maria Antionetta
Will her first sentence be, "Let them eat cake"?

You know, you can take 12-hour pills for that now.

She worked in the joulery department.

There are bad CRE8IVE SPELLINGS...and then there's Bri'Yana.

Now, here's the stumper: is this baby boy named after the Tribe, the clothing line or the Jeep? Enquiring minds want to know.

And for the next baby...will it be Krimson and Klover?

Beam this name


And his brother, Switch.


Now, don't get me wrong. Nadia is a beautiful name. But this CRE8IVE SPELLING looks more like a porn star's moniker than a baby name.



Dial V for Vandetta...and then B for BAD BABY NAMES!

BBN News: Malaysia Enacts Anti-Bad Baby Name Law

Malaysia Says No to Bad Baby Names

Malaysian authorities have published a list of undesirable titles to prevent parents giving their children names such as Hitler, Smelly Dog or 007.
Such choices are not allowed, but there is a right of appeal.

The list came as a response to the growing number of Malaysians who are applying to change their birth names.

Malaysia's National Registration Department made the decision after consulting with various religious bodies in the country.

They represented the country's Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist and Taoist communities.

Traditionally, some groups have given newborns inauspicious names to ward off demons and evil spirits.

Further restrictions

Now names like the Hokkien Chinese Ah Chwar, meaning snake, and Khiow Khoo, meaning hunchback, are being ruled out.

So too are Cantonese monikers Chow Tow, meaning smelly head, and Sor Chai, meaning insane.

Members of Malaysia's Tamil community will be discouraged from using the likes of Karrupusamy (black god), and Malays from trying names like Woti, meaning sexual intercourse.

But the ban extends further.

Parents will not be able to call their babies after animals, insects, fruit, vegetables or colours.

Numbers are also not allowed, so little James Bonds cannot flaunt their 007 status on their ID cards.

Other restrictions stop parents giving children royal or honorary titles as names or calling their little ones after Japanese cars.
