Babies should not be named after celebrities. Matinee idolize is ok but naming the kid after a movie star is ridiculous.

I do not comprehend why parents name their kids with celebrity names. Do they think that just by naming, the kid will become famous or a movie star? Its ridiculous.

Naming a baby with a celebrity name is common in India, when a movie of an actor becomes hit; many babies are named after him. A movie star with mass appeal is mostly the most sought after name such as Amitabh Bacchan
