A sentiment immediately echoed by Julia
Roberts' children, Godzilla and Megalon

At last, a cause I can get behind! I'm talking of course about the efforts of Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof, daughter of Sir Bob Geldof, who is speaking out against celebrities giving their children ridiculous names. (Although frankly Peaches doesn't have a heck of a lot to complain about, given that nowhere in that list is Superman's Kryptonian birth name. I'm just saying.)

Geldof (the one named after fruit) says that "my weird name has haunted me all my life," a fate sure to befall the likes of Tallulah Belle Moore Willis, Apple Paltrow Martin and Sage Moonblood Stallone as well. Not to mention the Holmes-Cruise baby, whose name they're rumored to have narrowed down to "Top Gun" and "L. Ron Hubbard."

A immensely noble cause for sure. With all of the insanity in the world, Peaches is a savior of idiotically-named kids. Bravo, Peaches.

Her fathers efforts against poverty and the such have clearly rubbed off on her.

And why doesn't she just go by Michelle or Charlotte or Vanessa instead? Case closed.

A small price to pay for being the child of obscenely wealthy people. Call me Sanyo and let me inherit.
