Grammy and Oscar-nominated singer M.I.A., whose given name in Mathangi Arulpragasam, and her musician fiancé, Benjamin Bronfman, named their son Ickitt Brewer, reports Latina.

What an awful name. Kids being kids will probably shorten it to Icky. Why don’t some of these parents think before giving a child a name that can be shortened like this?

# 3

What can I do more to protect this woman from this HOMO-SEXUAL, folks?

# 4

She needs to dump that outfit.

# 5

That’s tantamount to child abuse.

# 6

HORRIBLE NAME!
you don’t name your baby Ickitt. that’s just weird.

# 7

Poor kid.
Why don’t some parents think twice before naming a child?
Remember Bronx Maddox (Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson)?
Another baby with a horribly horrid name.

Thank God for my name.

# 8

What happened to the good old fashioned names? Ickett???

# 9

@ Stephanie-it’s Bronx Mowgli, not Bronx Maddox(that’s Brangelina’s kid). Maddox is an upgrade from Mowgli.

Well, I’ve heard better names, I’ve heard worse. It is inevitable that that kid’s nickname is going to be icky. Why is it the celebrities that name their kids weird names.

Variations in names is alright, but something as odd as Ickitt? I’ve always been mad at my mom for spelling my name Kristin, not Kristen. I actually think I have to thank her now. She could have named me Ickitt!

ick it so no one will eat it? omg imagine the taunts when this child goes to school. “nyah nyah that’s icky little ickitt.” they may think it’s cute now but this kid will grow into an adult and has to introduce himself in the working world as ickitt.

Sounds more like a description of that awful ensemble she is wearing ~:- }

His nickname’s not going to be Icky, it’s gonna be Lickitt. And pray he never gets Rickets!

HORRIBLE NAME!
you don’t name your baby Ickitt. that’s just weird.
*********************************************************************************

It’s horrible but no more weird than Dweezil or Moon Unit.

Can anyone say “publicity stunt?” Price of fame, y’all.

they call me wicked ickitt..

Was she serious wearing that crap to the Grammy’s?? She’s dumb. Oh and that name sucks.

seriously? ickett? being a celebrity baby does not excuse them from people making fun of them

something is wrong with the baby name and with her outfit :|

OH goodness grief…that poor baby. This mom must be out of her mind. I don’t get it when celebrities name their children odd and crazy names, Ickett. ugh!

Just can’t imagine looking at a little baby’s face and talking to him..calling him my sweet Icky. Ickett….gee!

she posted a blog saying that isn’t the baby’s name since
