I Don't Like Bad Names: Bob Geldof Wants Daughter to Change Son's Name

He's known for selecting less-than-normal names for his own children, but it seems former Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof doesn't like the name his daughter Peaches Geldof has chosen for his new grandson!

The singer/philanthropist, who was one of the masterminds behind the famous 80s famine fundraiser Live Aid, is reportedly not happy with the name of his grandson, who has been christened Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof. This is definitely a case of the pot calling the kettle black, as the names of Bob's children include some highly unusual selections. 

He has a daughter, Fifi Trixibelle, 29, who was named Fifi after his aunt and Trixibelle because his late ex-wife Paula Yates wanted a belle in the family. They then had 23-year-old Peaches Honeyblossom, as well as their youngest daughter, Little Pixie, 21. Geldof is also the adopted father to Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof, the daughter of his ex-wife Paula Yates and late Australian rock star Michael Hutchence, the former lead singer of the band Inxs. (Hutchence committed suicide in 1997, while Yates died of a reported drug and alcohol overdose in 2000.)

Geldof told UK newspaper The Sun about his daughter's selection of a name: "Yuck! What’s he going to be called in school? Ass? Stella? It’s a girl’s name, let’s face it." Grandaddy should talk, right, kiddos?
