Another Crazy Celebrity Baby Name

Her other kids are named Seven Sirius and Puma Sabti. No -- we're not kidding.

Erykah Badu

You could never accuse Erykah Badu of being boring or traditional.

The singer confirms that she has named her newborn daughter ... drumroll, please ... Mars Merkaba. And how did she communicate this to the world? On the Twitter website, of course!

Mars, we assume, is for the planet. The Hebrew word Merkabah means "chariot." Merkaba is also a Zulu word for a space/time/dimension vehicle. I guess that means you could technically take a Merkaba and fly to Mars. Far out! founder Jennifer Moss says, "I had a feeling it would be an interesting name, considering her other children are named SEVEN and PUMA. Mars does fit in the family. Erykah is a creative namer ... even with herself! She was born Erica Abie Wright but later changed her name to Erykah Badu."

What do you think of this out-of-this-world baby name?

It’s more likely that “Mars” refers to the god for whom the planet is named. Mars is the Greek god of war, and Mars Ultor, who drives a chariot is the god of vengeful war.

Pay no attention to what the critics say… Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!

Greetings, for whatever reason I can not sign up to on your rss feed, it simply comes up with a parse problem when utilizing chrome? I’m sure this can be to do with themes or templates having white space, there is a plugin available to repair it.

I’ve read two or three pages from your web page, however the nav doesn’t appear to line up with the rest of the website properly which unfortunately makes pressing the hyperlinks problematic. Are you wanting me to send you a screen grab?
