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 ...
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.
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.
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.
Banjo, the son of Rachel Griffiths and Andrew Taylor, is not only named after a musical instrument, but probably the most absurd one to name a kid after you could think of. With the possible exception of oboe.
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.

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?
