Brangelina Baby Name Game: The Results

By Liz Kelly

On Friday, I asked you for baby name possibilities for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to consider for their soon-to-arrive love child. Rumor has it that Angelina has already decided on "Africa" for boy or girl, but I thought they might benefit from considering some alternatives.

And, apparently, so did you because we received a veritable smorgasbord of monikers, from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Some took the task seriously and came up with some lovely options keeping the spirit of an Africa-centric name:

"Ananda? Swahili for 'the joy in existence without which life is not worth living.'" -- How about
"If we are going with an African theme my vote is for Mufasa." -- Buster
"If it is a girl, Selam. It means peace in Ethiopian language Amharic. If it is a boy, Belay It means above all in Ethiopian language Amharic." -- Addis

Some were practical and succinct:

"How about Lulu since that is what the parents are. If it is a boy I agree with Fred. Never met a Fred I didn't like." -- Annandale

A lot of folks, though, saw this as an opportunity to air their dislike or disapproval of Brangelina. Not that I would ever condone this kind of behavior, but here are some favorites (and thank you to all of the helpful readers who suggested "Peach," "Arm," "Snake" and other variations ending with Pitt):

"Call it Oscar -- the only way Brad will ever hold one." -- mdbdotcom
"How about 'Stunt' because it is only about the 'Publicity' for Mommy and Daddy." -- publicist-not
"How about 'The Desert Fox Jolie Pitt'?" -- d-money
"NANGILA: Kenyan name meaning 'born while the parents were traveling.'" -- Ayomide
"Actually, the child's full name will be "Africa Toto," and is in fact in honor of the #1 pop song and band of 1983." -- Basil Valentine

For the full list go here. And a very special thanks to each and every reader who cared enough to comment "Who cares?"
