With so many celebrity babies being born these days, it's time to reflect on some of the more ridiculous things stars choose to name their offspring.

It's not a short list.

Alex Rodriguez, Cynthia Rodriguez and Kids

From tributes to their own names to animate objects like fruit, to bad plays on words and misspelled, utter nonsense that makes you wonder what the hell they're thinking, celebrities are constantly one-upping themselves.

Here's a look the 32 all-time greatest (worst) celebrity baby names, in the opinion of our celebrity gossip editors and exhaustively researched by our interns.

At least, that is, until Paris Hilton gets knocked up.

We love Blanket to pieces, but MJ's son is still #16.

  1. Tu Morrow (Rob Morrow) - Say it out loud.
  2. Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee)
  3. Kal-El (Nicolas Cage)
  4. Calico (Alice Cooper)
  5. Zuma (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale) - Zima would have been better.
  6. Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon) - Is that a college course these days?
  7. Free (Barbara Hershey and David Carradine) - Is its middle name Britney?
  8. Denim and Diezel Ky (Toni Braxton)
  9. Moxie CrimeFighter (Penn Jillette)
  10. Bogart Che Peyote (Reality star David "Puck" Rainey)
  11. Apple (Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow) - Not really in the same league as #1-10 ... but really? Apple? It'll be less cute when she's a teen.
  12. Fifi Trixibell (Bob Geldof and Paula Yates)
  13. Peaches and Pixie (Bob Geldof and Paula Yates) - Talk about being on a roll.
  14. Track (Sarah Palin and Todd Palin) - Track what? Honorable mention: Trig.
  15. Princess Tiaamii (Katie Price) - How is that even pronounced?
  16. Prince Michael II / "Blanket" (Michael Jackson) - The best part (besides his nickname)? There is no actual Prince Michael I, only Michael Jr.
  17. Seargeoh (Sylvester Stallone) - That's not even English.
  18. Sage Moonblood (Sylvester Stallone) - Sounds like a feminine hygiene product.
  19. Jermajesty (Jermaine Jackson) - Nice that Michael has sibling company on this list.
  20. Hud (John Cougar Mellencamp and Elaine Irwin) - Possibly ponsored by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
  21. Spec Wildhorse (John Cougar Mellencamp and Elaine Irwin) - Even better.
  22. Pirate (Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and porn-star wife Deven)
  23. Bronx Mowgli (Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz)
  24. Honor (Jessica Alba and Cash Warren) 
  25. Sparrow (Nicole Richie and Joel Madden) - We liked Harlow, actually ... but Sparrow is a generic bird name that sounds like a girl's name.
  26. Rebel, Racer, Rogue (Robert Rodriguez) - Who does this Robert Rodriguez guy think he is, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian's dad?
  27. Seven Sirius (Andre Benjamin and Erykah Badu) - That'll make him ... wait, wait for it ... an Outkast at school for sure. Sorry, had to.
  28. Harley Quinn (Kevin Smith)
  29. Camera (Arthur Ashe) - Apparently Nikon was taken.
  30. Blue Angel (U2's The Edge)
  31. Kyd (David Duchovny and Tea Leoni)
  32. Reignbeau (Ving Rhames) - Ving apparently failed spelling.

Okay, so they were probably in love and want to spend eternity together and all that good stuff. But the singer-actress has just confirmed she is expecting!

"The pregnancy was a surprise, but they were getting married regardless," a source says of Milian and The-Dream, both 27, who got married last Friday.

Milian has already been talking about children.

"Of course, I would love to have kids," she said earlier this summer at the premiere of her film Bring It On: Fight to the Finish in New York.

"I think that's part of the reason I do movies like this."

The couple, who always seem super happy together, got engaged back in July. No word on whether they plan on naming the little guy The-Dream-Junior.

Regardless, The-Dream (real name: Terius Hagert Youngdell Nash) - who proposed with a six-carat ring from Ivanka Trump's line - has been talking family too.

"I love kids, and [Christina] loves kids probably more than I do," he said. "She'll make that time. In the next couple of years, there'll be something around."

Kendra Wilkinson enjoyed a special baby shower for her son, Hank Baskett IV, who is tentatively listed as probable to be born on Christmas Day.

Who better to throw her a perfect shower than BFFs and former Girls Next Door co-stars Bridget Marquard and Holly Madison? No one, that's who.

The festivities took place at longtime Playboy secretary Mary O’Connor’s house just outside L.A., and the theme was pickles and Candyland.

Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt arrived early to decorate the house with tons of blue balloons and streamers in honor of their friend's baby.

Here's K-Dubs getting ready to devour some serious pickle ...

Pickles

THAT THING IS HUGE: Seriously, check out Kendra's bump!

Also in attendance were Kendra's "ex," Hugh Hefner, and the array of Hef's whores, a.k.a. Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Hef, who even put on clothes for the occasion, wouldn't miss it for anything. Well, unless Kimberley Conrad were there, then he would've sat it out.

“The girls are going to Kendra's baby shower today,” he Twittered. “Crystal, the Twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”

The house was also filled with multicolored lollipops, taffy candy, and cupcakes. Marquardt herself baked hundreds of miniature cupcakes for the event.

“Just got done baking, frosting and decorating a ton of mini cupcakes for Kendra's baby shower. It's been a busy day. I'm exhausted,” she Twittered.

It is only fitting that Nicole Richie, who just became a mom for the second time, took to Twitter to tweet for joy about her new baby bird ... er, boy, Sparrow.

After the birth of their son yesterday Nicole and fiance Joel Madden each went online to express their love for themselves publicity Twitter itself their child.

"What a great day to come back on Twitter," Nicole wrote, somehow without sarcasm. "Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I love my family!!"

That's good. We wouldn't have believed it, and it probably wouldn't even be true if she hadn't written about it online for 639,351 of her closest friends.

Joel also lamely Twittered props to his son: "1st day of his life & my son is already a trending topic on twitter. That's right son, ur just like your old man."

We're happy the baby is healthy and all, guys, but get a life. Go hang out with Sparrow. Occasional updates are great, but so is the idea of moderation.

Is the nanny busy caring for the baby while you Twitter about it?

Harlow has yet to welcome Sparrow to the world on Twitter. Get on it, girl!

Heigl recently hosted a baby shower for co-star Ellen Pompeo. Bet that was a nice preview ... minus Chris Ivery cheating on her with Rachel Artz, that is.

Congrats to Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley if the adoption rumors are true!

The couple also run the Richie Madden Children's Foundation, which they launched in 2007 to provide grants to health-care and education non-profits.

"I don't think you can plan anything about having a child," Nicole Richie said in October 2008. "It's something completely new, so you just have to go with whatever works for you. There's a million different ways to be a mom."

We expect she'll handle it with flying colors yet again!

Now the 42-year-old rocker is expecting his second baby with some woman named Allison Bridges. Way to pass the DNA on a second time, Chris!

Nadya Suleman and Children

The singer and his girlfriend of nearly two years "will welcome their first child in early 2010," his rep confirms this afternoon. Congratulations!

Chris Robinson has knocked up Allison Bridges. If you have a picture of her, by all means send one in. For now, you're stuck with Kate Hudson. She's pretty at least.

The rocker's 12th album, Before the Frost... Until the Freeze, hit stores last week. Ryder has yet to issue a press release regarding his future half-sibling.

Kate Hudson, meanwhile, is spending her time at Yankees games cheering on new beau Alex Rodriguez. She supposedly wants to have A-Rod's baby too.

Here's something you won't read in any The Young and the Restless spoilers - Michelle Stafford is expecting her first child this December, via a surrogate!

Stafford, 43, has won two Emmys on the CBS daytime drama. She relied on a surrogate mother after struggling through fertility treatments and surgeries.

"After a three-year journey through hell, I'm elated, ecstatic and lucky to be able to announce I'm expecting my own child via surrogate," Stafford said.

She also confirms she's expecting a girl.

Michelle Stafford, who is single, first tried artificial insemination, then vitro fertilization. She looked into adopting after deciding to start her own family.

"I never wavered in my desire to be a mother," she says. "But I did waiver on aspects of the process. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life."

"This entire process has been very, very difficult to do on my own," Stafford says, "and has made me realize the importance and reason for a partner."

"Dating men and telling them I'm expecting in December is a little different," she adds. "I need to find someone who wants the same things as I do."

Congratulations to the expectant mom!
