Laila Ali on North West and Other ‘Crazy’ Baby Names: ‘It’s Stupid’ [Video]

Celebrities love thinking outside the box when it comes to baby names. Whether it be fruits, trees or directional terms, celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are more unconventional than ever.

In a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, daughter of Muhammad Ali Laila offered an opposing view on the long running trend.

“I don’t like crazy names. I don’t like them. I don’t think it makes any sense. You have to think about the child and as they get older what they have to deal with. A lot of people do things as a fad and they want to get some attention, but it’s like this is your child,” she said.

Laila, who is a mother of two, thinks other celebrity parents should think more rationally about putting putting an unusual name on their child’s birth certificate.

“For me, if it’s crazy but cool and nice and it makes sense then that’s one thing, but North and South and Leaf and Waterdrop and all these names it’s like ‘Come on now! I don’t care who you are. That’s just stupid! Period.”
