Face-Off: Is Honor the Worst Celebrity Baby Name Yet?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

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 ...


YES by mischalova

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?


People are just jealous that Honor is a really rare name and their name is just a comman name.


My daughter's name is honor ... it's a family name. I think it's beautiful. Jessica Alba has a lot of class, which isn't reflective of the article written.


I dont really like my name that much but loads of people say its nice and i think Apple is kind of worse, no offence, but it's a fruit.


My name is Honor too! People call me honourable Honor and I love my name.


My name is Honor and I love it!
I dont know anybody els with my name.
I live in austria, so you would think they made fun of my name, but they dont. They even told me it was nice!
Sooooo glad my mum named me Honor and not Fern or Lily!
Lots of love to all the other Honors out there!
Honor Xxxxxx


My names honor and I love it because it makes me special. I have a gold chain which says my name but people say to me they thought it said horny&homer. Personaly I love my name I also read that is means " Feminine & honourable women. I just love the fact that it's uncommon and I want it to stay that way. xxxx


My name is Honor. People absolutely love my name and I'm not bragging. The name is Irish and in America it's not very common for people to have this name. No one has ever made fun of my name, but they have turned it into "on her" or some other things but it's all immature and they end up being your friend anyways. So I love the name Honor, and I'm glad I'm not the only Honor out there!


Honor sounds like a cool name and i really like it, i think its irish.


I live in England and am expecting my first child which I plan to call Honor. Its funny reading the comments as in the UK it's a perfectly normal name and very traditional, not like the crap people make up these days..glad to see there are more posts for rather than against!


My girlfriend's name is Honor. I think it's cute. I do have to admit the first time I saw her I said, "It's an Honor to meet you." It was just too easy. Anyway, I like the name, far from the worst!
