Forget Apple, Suri & Pilot Inspektor: 21 Celebrities Who Gave Their Kids NORMAL Names

What Did Johnny Depp name his son?

There is a certain freedom that celebrities seem to have when it comes to naming their children. Many of them don’t feel like they need to play by the “normal” naming conventions of the rest of society. In their lives, they stand out as stars, so they take the liberty to name their offspring with stand out names.

From  Jason Lee’s son Pilot Inspektor, Gwenyth Paltrow naming her daughter after a fruit, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes naming their kid Suri (without the fringe on top), these celebrity parents get a bit wild in naming their kids. But then there are those other, more practical parents.

A handful of movie stars, models, and performers opted to give their kids refreshingly normal names. Names like Henry, John, and Max. So who are the movie stars who said no to the wacky name trend? You’d think Johnny Depp would give his kid a wackadoddle name? Think again.

Check out twenty —one celebrity parents who went conservative rather than kooky.
