George Clooney Against Celebrities Giving Their Children ‘Really Dumb Names’

Beyoncé and JAY-Z have Blue Ivy and now Rumi and Sir. Their pals Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have an Apple. And, of course rocker Frank Zappa named his daughters Moon and Diva. So for the fame watchers among us, unusual celebrity names are nothing new.

But for one couple they were not an option. In a recent interview George Clooney explained why he and his wife Amal opted for more traditional names for their twins who were born back in June.

Since the 1990s I took George Clooney at his word that he would never marry again and he would definitely never have children. But in the last few years the confirmed bachelor has become a gushing newlywed and now a proud papa.
