Dad names children after Lady Gaga and Will.I.Am

Pop star-inspired baby names chosen by step-daughter

A father in Northumberland has decided to call his newborn son Tommy, after the Black Eyed Peas musician.

As reported by The Daily Mirror, Ian Clark, 36, has already named one of his daughters Maggie Maisie Lady Gaga.

The names are said to have been chosen by the family’s eldest daughter, Maddie, aged four.

The mother of the children, Melanie Robinson, said:

I’m trying to convince him not to, but he’s done it once so I’m sure he will do it again.

It wouldn’t be the first time a parent has picked an ill-advised name for their offspring. Earlier this year an Egyptian man named his daughter ‘Facebook’, to mark the impact of the social network site’s help in his country’s revolution.

The strange choice of names for children doesn’t stop at the general public. Here’s a collection of baby names chosen by rock star parents, including Bingham Bellamy (son of Muse’s Matt), Audio Science Clayton (son of U2 bassist Adam) and Moon Unit Zappa (son of Frank).
