The Brangelina Baby Name Game

By Liz Kelly

With a rumored due date of May 18, baby Brangelina could arrive any minute now. Hordes of paparazzi are in place outside the Namibian compound where soon-to-be parents Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt plan to welcome the bundle of joy. It's likely they'll keep the newborn away from telephoto lenses since they reportedly pre-sold the first pix of the baby to Us Weekly for 2.6 million pounds (with the money reportedly going to UNICEF).

A few weeks back, it was rumored that Jolie plans to name the baby -- boy or girl -- "Africa" in honor of the place so beloved by mom and dad. Though I understand the sentimental gesture inherent in the name, I would like Brad and Angie to consider some alternatives. Africa is a wonderful name... for a continent. But when it comes to a child, well, it'll work just as well as "Moon Unit" or "Dweezil" or "Kick Me" when it comes to playground taunting.

With that in mind, I thought we could avoid lobbing more empty criticism into the celeb-o-sphere by crafting a list of possible alternate names for baby Jolie-Pitt. Something that will perhaps fit in well with older siblings Maddox and Zahara.

Include your suggestions in the comments section. The name and the reasoning behind it would be swell. Do your part and I'll do my darndest to get this to the Jolie-Pitts, or at least one of their publicists' assistant's assistant.

I'll start:

Seven: Not only is it a sacred number for several religions, but a tribute to the freaky serial killer thriller Brad starred in back in the day. Though ex Gwyneth Paltrow co-starred, didn't she? And the name was the butt of a "Seinfeld" joke. Well, maybe you'll have better luck.

Aniston Jolie Pitt -- I think the names Maddox, Zahara and Aniston work well together and maybe Jennifer A. will take it as a sign of good will from her ex and his new squeeze.

How about Peach or Cherry for a girl, a la Paltrow, or Ahrm for a boy? hehehe I've been wondering when she was gonna pop that puppy out, though. But since he's Midwestern and she's...not, I think a standard first name and an exotic middle name would be cool. She did great naming the first two, so I can't wait to find out what they decide.

There's an Irish girls name, Aifric, that would work. It's pronounced Af-ric (just like Africa without the "a" at the end). It means Africa in Irish but I've also heard that it has another meaning as Gaeilge.

Since Maddox and Zahara include the letters X and Z why not go for a name with a Y? How about Yolli (Yolli Joli Pitt!), Yasna, Yasmin, Ybar or Ynot!

Africa doesn't seem too bad to me. It's sort of in the Asia/India mold. But the last name is really the pitts. Maybe Brad should change his last name to Jolie?

How about WHO CARES ? They are having a baby, not curing cancer or saving the world. Although their humanitarian efforts are commendable, they are only noticable because they happen to be movie stars. What about all the people that dedicate their lives to helping others?

If she's going to name the kid after a continent, or some other land mass, I've always felt "Eurasia" would be nice and reasonably unisexual.

"Antarctica" does not appeal to me, however. Too cold.

How about a name that comes from Namibia, or at least Southern or Western Africa. I always find the use of Swahili names and words among African Americans to be quite interesting, considering that the majority of African Americans came from West Africa, while Swahili is a language spoken primarily in East Africa - a trading language based in Bantu, Arabic and English. I am sure there are beautiful words in Oshivambo, Herero, Nama or any of the other Namibian indigenous languages. I won't even start on the American holiday of Kwanzaa, which presumes to celebrate our history using words and symbols from a culture that was never, for most of us, ours (again - most AA's came from West Africa, not East). Back to the baby, though, Africa just seems a bit boring as a name - I would expect more from Angelina.

Nubia - the land of the ancient Nubians located beyond Aswan on the upper Nile. This empire once rivaled Ancient Egypt in strength and power. I think it's an appropriate name for the offspring of Hollywood's megacouple ... and Nubia Pitt doesn't sound as bad as the alternative.

Future historians will look back at this generation and wonder how we lost our minds when it came to naming children.

What's the goal? To choose a name that few or no other person would name their child? If that's the goal, how about Exxon?

Lord knows they couldn't possibly name the baby something normal like Brad or Angelina. That would doom the child for sure.
