It could be worse.

Imagine being named Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence.

I think that every U2 fan has asked themselves that question at some point in their lives. It is quite a unique name.


The "Q" refers to Quincy Jones who is a close friend of Bono's and who was working on the "Drop the Debt" issue with Bono & Bob Geldof during the time when baby Eli was born.


Gotta love Bono....

LOL Or "license plate" for his bike.

Gee, maybe when he grows up he'll marry Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence. They'll name their first son Fred. Or Joe. Sue. Anything short.

I remember complaining to my mother once as a kid that they never sold personalized pencils with my name (Chasity) on them. She kind of got annoyed and said "Would you rather me have named you something else then, just so you could have a pencil with your name on it?"

I hope you're joking.

Compared to other celeb kids, Bono's children have almost boringly normal names.

His son is only called Elijah or Eli, which is a biblical name like all the names of Bono's other children.

All of Eli's other names he has are references to people, like Q to Quincy Jones or Patricius to St. Patrick of Ireland or Guggi to, well, Guggi obviously. And Bob, after Bono's Dad.

There is nothing strange about this name or any of Bono's kids' names. In fact, they are all beautiful names.

He hasn't named one of them Bono jr. after all. Now that would have been something. But as long as Ali has her say in this, I'm sure it will be okay.

Well, Edge's kids, on the other hand, are a different story. Blue Angel anyone?

Um, how about Memphis Eve?

And I don't know about where you live, but Blue is a common name for redheads where I am....I know a few Blue's....I guess people have different perceptions of weird

Memphis Eve is a nice name, a lot of people are including city names into their kids' named, I don't see it as weird. But I guess it really has to do with were you are living. I have heard so many horrible celebrity children names where I really feel sorry for the kids, but Bono's kids' names are really anything other than strange. Bob Geldof's kids, on the other hand .... phew, I pity them.

That's exactly what I'm getting at. It's an individual perception and no one is right or wrong about what's a good name. Names are chosen for many different reasons and all as importants as the other. Yeah, Bob's kids have unique names, and some other kids have what I consider downright horrific names, but that's just my opinion.

Memphis Eve is such a lovely name. Not unsual at all.
My granddaughter(s) are Madison and Kate Alexandria.
I also have a female friend named Sydney.
