Kooky celebrity baby names inspired by, um, animals

COLETTE KOALA
Macklemore revealed his daughter's unusual name in a post honouring his wife Tricia Davis for Mother's Day. We're guessing they've never heard of the 'Caramello Koala.'

ELSIE OTTER & CHARLIE WOLF
Actress Zooey Deschanel and husband Jacob Pechenik also appear to be a fan of the animal middle name. The actress told People that they named their daughter Elsie Otter because "we just really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters - they're very sweet and they're also smart." Awww.

BEAR
Like a lot of parents, Liam Payne and Cheryl struggled with what to name their son. "I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual," the boy band member told Total Access . Not sure we'd consider Bear traditional but it sure is memorable.

SPARROW JAMES
Although Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's son is technically named after an animal, the inspiration behind the name actually came from Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Ahoy Matey!

BUDDY BEAR
Although it may sound like a new animated movie this is actually the adorable name of Jamie and Jools Oliver's fourth child.

BIRDIE LEIGH & CRICKET PEARL
Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein's kids' names may sound crazy but the explanation behind them actually makes a lot of sense. "Since I grew up with a nickname - Busy being short for Elizabeth - when my husband and I started to have our babies, we decided that if wanted to call our kids something, we would just name them that thing that we wanted to call them," Busy said on Today .

NAKOA-WOLF
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa's first son was named in honour of the fact he was born on "the stormiest, rainiest night." The name literally means warrior, strength/spirit, rain and dark.

PUMA SABTI
Erykah Badu decided to name her daughter after both a big cat and a sportswear brand. Her siblings are called Mars and brother Seven so you know a boring old regular name wasn't even an option.

JACK LION
This sounds like a menswear brand but is actually the name of Amy Lee of Evanescence and husband Josh Hartzler's son, born in 2014. Looks like he's taking after his muso mum already.
