Pink to name her baby after a whiskey? Hey, it could be worse

November 29, 2010 |  5:20 pm

Pink-carey-hart whiskey jameson We should have known when word got out that singer Pink (a.k.a. Alecia Moore) and motocross racer hubby Carey Hart were expecting their first child that they wouldn't chose just any old name.

Pink has told Ellen DeGeneres that the doctor thought the baby was a girl. So perhaps the expectant momma had her tongue firmly in cheek when she told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush that the couple were considering Jameson for a boy -- as a hat tip to the whiskey?

"My dad's name is James, and my brother's name is Jason," the Grammy Award winner said. "[Carey and I] are both Irish, Carey's middle name is Jason, [and] Jameson -- we like whiskey. That's a no brainer."

Pink had explained earlier in the interview that she was "all about meaning, and Carey feels like he had a girl's hair cut and a girl's name, and he doesn't want kids to have a weird name."

And as far as celebrity baby names go, this one really isn't odd at all. Perhaps Apple Martin or Pilot Inspektor Lee will have little Jameson's back.

Which is your favorite -- or least favorite -- celebrity baby name? Share in the comments.
