Well, there's one way to make sure your child always makes a 'Top 50' list – give them a truly unique name. For years celebrities have been branding their offspring with unusual monikers; the 'normal' options most parents will consider when choosing a baby name seem to be thrown out the window. But whether you're inspired or appalled, one thing's for certain: in a sea of Olivers and Amelias, these less popular names are sure to stand out.

What Mumsnetters say about celebrity baby names

“I predict that they use a Farrow and Ball paint chart to come up with a name.”

“It's as though they've taken a list of their favourite names and decided to use them all.”

“I would use those names, but can see that they are a bit 'out there' for some.”

“I think they are really pretty but I wouldn't have the guts to use them.”
