By now, it's old news that famous folks have an uncanny knack for giving their kids uniquely quirky and brilliantly creative (read: unnecessarily cruel and totally absurd) names along the lines of North West, Pilot Inspektor, Apple Blythe, and Ace Knute.
While we all might snicker and crack wise about stars' penchant for getting away for naming their offspring after a fruit, an aerospace occupation, a compass point, or a single-suit symbol found in a deck of cards, we're not terribly surprised that they've opted to totally make up their own monikers. In fact, we've come to expect wild, weird, and just plain silly celebrity baby names.
What's is surprising, however, is when a famous person has a baby and decided to give them a totally normal name.
In fact, when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were expected to give their child a name that starts with "K," we were kinda-sorta hoping they'd throw everyone for a serious loop and decide on something like Karen or Kristen-a move we think would have gotten them even more press than a name like Kaidence. (We all know how that story turned out: See above reference to the compass point.)
One famous couple who'll likely give their offspring a common name? The anything-but-common royals Kate Middleton and Prince William, whose baby is due this month. So far, we've heard hearsay that the royal's name could be Edward, Alexandra, or Diana-all sedate, simple, elegant names. While there's no way of knowing for certain what the royal baby's name will be, we're certain it won't be something silly, frivolous, or completely made up.
In the spirit of normalcy, we decided to compile a list of celebrities who gave their kids-gasp!-totally normal names. Click through and let us know: Which name is your favorite?
