I see nothing wrong with the name Cruz and I doubt the Hewitts care what it means in Spanish. Perhaps they wanted to name their son after this guy...

"Cruz" is usually a second or last name in Spanish. It means "cross".

But pronounced in english and used as a first name......poor boy.

I think people can be really selfish when naming their children. Admittedly, we all pick names that we like, but a name needs to be chosen that will carry somebody through their life during all stages. A friend of mine once worked with a 6 foot tall, obese woman with thining hair, called Princess, yes, I am serious and the laughs that this apparently caused whenever the poor woman had to fill in forms, meet potential customers etc.. Imagine having to start your first day at work with a name like Peaches Honey Blossom Heavenly Tiger Knickers (the Geldof's kids), I mean, Come on!

Well, it's not that gruesome, if it's not the language the child will grow up with. I mean like naming your child Cruz when you live in Australia is not as bad as when you live in Spain for example.

And didn't Frank Zappa also have a kid named 'Moon Unit'? Where do people get these names from?

My point was that it's more of a common name then people might think. As for your opinion, thats fair enough good for you but it's totally subjective. Different cultures/different opinions.:shrug:

God he should have just called her ax2+bx+c=0 instead (btw the 2 is meant to be 'squared'). Zappa was always weird though. I hate my name enough as it is, but thank god its nothing something totally stupid

I don't think Cruz is that bad, I just thought they were trying to become the Beckhams. :help: I went to school with some kids with strange names, the parents were hippies (as were mine, I'm glad my name is only a comic book character's name, not horribly bad), there was a family with kids named Pepsi and Taco. Yeah.

Yeah, but I live in the same western civilisation as Hewitt. I believe I can judge that name pretty well. It STINKS. I also think it sucks and... I've lost my train of thought.

Baby names are strongly influenced by trends in cultures that don't having naming traditions (i.e. naming your kids after grandparents, historical figures, etc.) Maybe Cruz is one of those new trendy boy names, like Jayden/Hayden/Aiden/Braden. Anyway, congrats to the Hewitts!

By the way, my vote for all-time "Worst naming crime committed by a celebrity" goes to the actress Shannyn Sossamon. She named her kid Audio Science.

:sobbing: And here I thought that Pilot Inspektor was as bad as i got :tape:

I have also seen some names that harm the outcome of the children's lives: Mistake, Decide & Forget. All of those guys didn't quite normal lives and Mistake wanted to change his name later on in life because it felt like a curse.

In perspective, Cruz isn't such a bad name after all ;)

Usnavy is a very common name in the pacific coast of south america, specially in Colombia and Peru, it comes from the US Navy ships they see all the time
