The Taxonomy of Celebrity Baby Names Infographic is Mind-Boggling

It's no secret that celebrities often name their kids after wild and outrageous things, and the Taxonomy of Celebrity Baby Names Infographic demonstrates just how often this happens to the poor, helpless children who will surely be picked on at the playground.

Perhaps the most well known example is Gwyneth Paltrow's child with Coldplay front man Chris Martin, Apple. Apparently, however, spices are popular names, since Saffron and Thyme appear on the list. Yes, that's right. Isiah Washington's child is named Thyme Washington. My deepest sympathies go out to that kid.

Other categories include: Celestial, Mall Items, Flower, Old Lady Name, and More Than Sixteen Syllables.

Royalty is perhaps my favorite category in the Taxonomy of Celebrity Baby Names Infographic. For instance, I was not aware that Jermain Jackson had a child named 'Jermajesty,' but I certainly am glad I know this now.
