When Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced in 2004 that their daughter would be called Apple, people were shocked.

So to remind you of them all, here is our definitive ranking of the wildest celebrity baby names.

When discussing the thought process behind naming their first child Apple, Gwyneth told Oprah, “When we were first pregnant, her daddy said, ‘If it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple.’ It sounded so sweet, and it conjured such a lovely picture for me, you know. Apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical.”

16. Blue Ivy

Child of: Beyonce and Jay Z

After much speculation, Beyonce finally shared why the couple named their first child Blue Ivy, sharing an excerpt from Rebecca Solnit’s novel, A Field Guide to Getting Lost in 2012.

It read, “The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the end blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us.

“It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water is colourless, shallow water appears to be the colour of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.

“The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the colour blue.”

And apparently, Ivy refers to the roman numerals IV, that is sentimental to both Beyonce and Jay Z.

So, there you go.

In 1982, Sting and Frances Tomelty welcomed their daughter Fuchsia Katherine into the world. Honestly, the fact they chose a colour as her name is just great.

They must have inspired Beyonce and Jay Z.

“I’m not sure where Petal Rainbow came from – apparently it’s a My Little Pony! I wanted to call her Rainbow but Jamie told me to calm down.

“…I hate people’s opinions on names. Whatever you call your baby is your decision.”

When Kim gave birth to their first child North West, an insider told E! that the reason behind the name was, “North means highest power. North is the most high. There is nothing higher than North. And, when it comes to the stars, the sun rises in the East and sets in the West.”

The family friend continued to explain that Kim and Kanye “look at her as being their highest point together. Nothing is more special than North. Kim keeps saying, ‘She is our North Star.'”

If that isn’t interesting enough, North now has three younger siblings: Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

2. Kulture Kiari

Child of: Cardi B and Offset

When Cardi B announced that her first child would be called Kulture, we thought she may have got some inspiration from the Kardashians. However, she later revealed that is was her rapper husband, Offset who came up with the name.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres she said, “My dude named the baby. I really like the name. Imma let him say the name since he named the baby. It’s, like, almost tricky but when it comes out, it’s like, ‘Ahh!'”

1. X Æ A-12

Child of: Elon Musk and Grimes.

And of course, in first place, X Æ A-12.

Tesla founder Elon Musk and singer Grimes welcomed their first child together on Tuesday.

Musk confirmed the new arrival when he tweeted that Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, and the baby boy were doing well and shared an image of himself holding his son, prompting his followers to ask the next logical question: What’s the baby’s name?

“X Æ A-12 Musk,” he replied to one.

And we still have no clue how it is pronounced.
