It’s been like a week since Chris Martin has made a bizarre, pointless public comment, I wonder when he’ll… Ooop, never mind, he’s speaking again:
“Thereâ€™s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if thatâ€™s what you want to call your baby,” he goes on. “Itâ€™s no stranger than Sarah.”
He says, “a name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f–k what everyone else says.”
Call me a stuffy, backward-thinking traditionalist, but I feel like naming your child “Chewbacca” would, in fact, be weird, and everyone would be like, “why is your kid named Chewbacca? Naming your child that is the very definition of ‘weird,’” whereas if you named your child “Sarah,” it would not be weird.
On the other hand, naming your child something atypical in order to draw further gossip attention to yourself and differentiate your celebrity superbaby from ordinary humans with the last name “Martin” is, by celebrity standards, not weird, which is weird.
Plus, giving your child a name that is one letter away from “Apple Martini” still isn’t the worst thing you can do as a celeb parent…
