Weird Names

David Duchovny of X-files and his wife, Tea Leoni called their son Kyd which doesn't sound so bad if you consider some other Hollywood celebrities calling their children weird names like Sage Moonblood, Buddy Bear Maurice, Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Destry and even Petal Blossom Rainbow. Celebrities purportedly give their children weird names to stay in the limelight. You'd probably think then that normal people would not give their children weird names too but eons ago, I have read in the local papers about Chinese parents giving names as strange as alpha, beta and gamma to their children and a Chinese boy somewhere in Malaysia even got to be called Jebat Arjuna or something as strange as that. It would be understable if the Chinese boy is an Indonesian as the law there requires that an Indonesian Chinese must have an Indonesian name. Widow of the late kung fu star Alexander Fu Sheng, Jenny Tseng reportedly, for her sheer love for music, had named her daughter Melody. It made one wonder then if parents who give their children weird names actually love them. You'd also wonder if Hong Kong stars, Nicholas Tse aka Tse Ting-fung and his wife Cecilia Cheung (inset) will call their son, Quintus a little queen...
