I have yet to find someone who doesn’t want his/her fifteen minutes of fame. Only be careful what you ask for, it might become true.
We have seen so many young and talented people who have ruined their lives after tasting the life of the rich and famous. Many of them can not handle the stress that demands being in the public eye watching everything they do. They don’t have a single second of private time. Paparazzi are their most feared nightmares.
Some of the names that come to my mind are:
- Britney Spears
- Anna Nicole Smith
- Paris Hilton
- Nicole Richie
- Lindsay Lohan
- Amy Winehouse
- Leif Garrett
- Todd Bridges
- Mary-Kate Olsen
- Dana Plato
Trying to escape their own identities, they plunge into cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, Valium and other toxic substances.
Something that I’ve also noticed about celebrities is how they name their kids. They don’t select names like John, James, Mary or Helen. No, they have to pick the most freakish names that would make their innocent kids blush later on in life.
I’ve selected some of these preposterous names celebrities have come about when naming their children. Take a look.

After seeing this, I’m so glad my parents named me Omar; easy to remember, easy to write and easy to pronounce.
