Occupations to Name Your Baby Other Than 'Sailor'

Weird celebrity baby names have come from a variety of sources throughout history — zoo animalscardinal directions, and fruits, for instance. But lately, it seems that obscure professions have become de rigueur as inspiration. Though Jason Lee infamously named his son "Pilot Inspecktor" a decade ago, two celebrities have resurrected the trend only this week — on Monday, Kristin Cavallari announced via Instagram that she had named her first daughter Saylor, only to find that a pregnant Bristol Palin was planning to name her unborn daughter the same thing (minus the "Y"). And Christie Brinkley and Liv Tyler also both named their daughter and son, respectively, "Sailor," before either of the two.

Because mothers- and fathers-to-be must always look to celebrities before choosing a baby name, here is a helpful list of other professions you can name your child, thereby securing for your child a lifetime of wealth and fame.
