List Rules Only famous parents with at least 2 kids with ridiculous baby names

Oh, celebrities. Is there anything you won't do to get people talking? This is a list of the worst all-around celebrity baby-namers - those famous folks who have given multiple kids annoying baby names. The most egregious repeat offenders - all of the ones naming their collective children things like Zeppelin & Pirate, Diezel & Denim - are listed here. And with celebrities naming their kids dumb words like that, no wonder your neighbors are naming their own children idiotic things like Comfort, Ferret, and Excellent
 

Everyone knows about Apple & Moses, and Rumer & Scout, but did you know that Robert Rodriguez has sons named Racer, Rebel, Rocket, and Rogue? How about that Forest Whitaker named his son Ocean and daughters True and Sonnet? He's not even the only celebrity to name a kid Sonnet - or Poet, for that matter. The worst are when the names all have some sort of theme, like flowers (Jamie Oliver) or your own name (George Foreman). Or maybe the worst is when the sounds are just nonsense words (Marcia Gay Harden).

As you contemplate these names / the future of civilization / naming your own kids things like Cumulus, Dainty, and Upholster, don't forget to vote on each item. Upvote up the ones that make you think, "Oh man, you are awful," and vote down any about whom you're just like, "Meh, those names are not so bad." And don't add any people with just one kid. We'll cross the Katie Holmes bridges when we get to it.
