An anagram of Drew Barrymore ‘Merry Wardrobe’ of this I am sure But with fortune and fame Some kids get a daft name ‘Grimes’ baby may get issues galore X AE A-Xii is his name It reminds me of a PC game The poor little mite Is in the spotlight His parents can’t have any shame Grimes and Elon Musk’s baby is called ‘X AE A-Xii’ - pronounced X Ash A Twelve. 01/06/20

Its amazing parents can land their children with these ridiculous names, I was thinking of the kardashians with 'north west' i wondered if they would produce lots of babies with different compass point names lol:-) hugs jan xx

I am surprised no one has commented on the poor chap always being at the end of an alphabetical queue. Let us hope he goes to school in China! Aloha! Rico

Oh that poor kid. I have wondered why certain well known stars and celebrities name their children what they do. God Bless my friend. JB

What will a child's name be called a hundred years from now (lol) Perhaps they will all be just a number. Love this, Jan.

I wonder what goes through their minds. I hope they are better at parenting then naming. Wonderful poem. Have a great day my friend.

Wait until he goes to school. Can you imagine what he will be called? He will be thanking his dad a lot. Don't think so. How do you spell weird? Enjoyed reading Jan feel empathy for his son though...

It beggars belief doesnt it! I did another poem some years back about celebs calling their kids stupid names but this one takes the biscuit - they are also going to allow 'him' to decide his gender .. heading for one screwed up mixed up kid:-( hugs JAN xx

Ha, ha! And I always thought that 'Moon Unit Zappa' was pretty ridiculous. This takes the cake... Love that photo of the brat in the headband too,... now an establishment tennis icon. lol. ~ Gershon
