Jessica Alba and Cash Warren welcomed a baby girl this week - and made headlines with an unusual choice of names. But how does Honor stack up with some of the other names given to celebrity babies? That's the subject of today's Face-Off ...
IS HONOR THE WORST CELEBRITY BABY NAME YET?
1. North West
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.
2. Destiny "Miley" Cyrus
Yes, Miley's real name is Destiny ... which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but Billy Ray and Tish probably guaranteed she'd become a stripper someday with that moniker.
3. Apple Martin
Ironically, Apple is both the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's daughter and likely the name of a food item forbidden in some rich crazy-person diet she probably follows.
5. Kal-El Cage
Nicolas Cage named one of his kids Kal-El, a fact not related to him being wasted out of his mind in this mug shot ... although that could explain a lot of things.
6. Bear (Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone)
Not only did she torture us with The Reader, Kate Winslet is making her newborn's life terrible with Bear as his name. Alicia Silverstone chose this name too. And she chews up Bear's food for him, which is also interesting.
7. Blanket Jackson
Blanket Jackson is not actually the name of the youngest child of Michael Jackson. It's Prince Michael Jackson II ... not to be confused with Prince Michael Jackson I (also pictured). As for his nickname, he was wearing a Blanket while MJ dangled him over a balcony. Good times.
9. Suri Cruise
Suri Cruise, the child of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is a bona fide cutie. Who will have to spell and explain her name approximately 10 times per day as an adult.
10. Tu Morrow
Actor Rob Morrow named his daughter Tu. GET IT? That's either a great play on words or the dumbest thing ever. Maybe a little of both.
12. Pilot Inspektor
Pilot Inspektor is the son of Jason Lee. That spelling you are reading here is accurate.
13. Princess Tiaamii
Princess Tiaamii is the daughter of busty British babe and reality star Katie Price. We feel bad.
Toni Braxton named her kid Denim. Apparently "Polyester," "Suede," and "Cotton" were taken.
Yes, Kyd. David Duchovny mailed that one in worse than his alleged acting on Californication.
16. Bronx Mowgli
Bronix Mowgli, the son of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, is named after a borough of New York City AND a Jungle Book protagonist.

Here's the main reason why "Honor" makes even "Apple" sound delicious:
Because boys are mean.
We can foresee conversations going on in the middle school halls right now: Did you get honor? Oh, I got honor, alright!
Just because Cash Warren was born with a ridiculous name (no offense, dude, it's given us a never-ending stream of puns to use; one might even say the name was money!) doesn't mean he needs to doom his daughter to the same fate.
The truth is, Warren and Jessica Alba are already a different breed of celebrity. They got married in a quiet ceremony, they rarely attend Hyde. There was no need to distinguish themselves from the Hollywood pack with such a unique name.
By the way, when it comes to Alba, we really wanna get on her.
See what we mean, guys? It's just too easy.
NO by Free Britney
Sometimes I wonder who comes up with these Face-Offs. The worst ever? While unconventional, this name may be one of the best.
Honor is defined as "an evidence or symbol of distinction." What better things can a baby stand for in these troubled times? If only all parents had such high expectations for their offspring as Jessica Alba and Cash Warren.
Honor is a rare and fine trait, and thus, a wonderful name - one representing all that is right with America. Heck, if Jessica has two more daughters named Freedom and Liberty, John McCain might give her a Cabinet post.
Behold are just a few of the many celebrity babies with names FAR worse than Jessica and Cash's noble selection. With names like these, it's a safe bet that any of the scarred-for-life tykes below would be honored (clank) to trade...
- Apple Martin (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin)
- Banjo Taylor (Rachel Griffiths & Patrick Taylor)
- Tu Morrow (Rob Morrow)
- Kal-El Cage (Nicolas Cage)
- Isaiah Washington Jr. (Isaiah Washington)
- Prince Michael Jackson I & II, a.k.a. Blanket (Michael Jackson)
- Pilot Inspektor Lee (Jason Lee)
What do you think: Did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren choose an Honor-able name - or is their daughter going to be hating them for life over this?
