  • Mlef

  • sasha

    first thing that comes to mind is Chandler Bingham from friends. haha oh dear this poor child will never live this down.

  • toria

    Do Hollywood kids not get teased when they go to school with some of these ridiculous names?

  • TeaMan

    @sasha: His name wasn’t Chandler Bingham, it was Chandler Bing.

  • Asha

    Poor kid. He will surly be picked on when he enters school. Why is it that celebrities think because they make millions and have glamorous jobs that they can name their children whatever they want?

  • laverdadduele

    DNA test, Matt, DNA test!

  • catchy

    oh why not GOOGLEHAM?

  • Andrea

    hahahaha bingham bellamy

  • me

    I read that Bingham was his mother’s maiden name. That’s actually pretty cool. And of course there’s Bing Crosby, if you’re not too young to know who he is.

  • Pepper

    And of course, BING RUSSELL.
    You people. The information is out there. It’s not even that hard to look for it.

  • boston61

    Don’t forget the Hawn. People must know this boy is royalty. Just open up those doors.

  • boston61

    I like Bingham but most definitely NOT with Bellamy.

  • Nicole

    I think Bingham is really cute but I don’t like the nickname “Bing.” Oh well it’s their baby they can give it whatever name they like :)

  • Laura


    Who is Bing Russell ?
    I knew that the name has a signification but an actor ? I can’t see the connexion with Bing Russell…

  • Laura


    I found … x))
    But WTF ?

  • MuseWren

    Bingham is a crater on the moon… classic Matt Bellamy! Love the name! :)

  • deke

    I think it’s a cute name. Better than Harper Seven!!

  • annab

    I never like any of the names celebrities pick lately. What’s wrong with the usual classy names that sound better and ones that the kid won’t get made fun of later.

  • mattiemuse

    its matts mums maiden name so shuttup complaining!

  • KC

    Bingham isn’t all that bad compared to some other celebrity baby names. She chooses family names for her children which have meaning.

  • sourpatch575

    Did they named him after Microsoft’s Search Engine….. BING?!?!?

  • Julie R.

    Stupid name.It may have a meaning for Matt,but kids are cruel and will bully him at school because of that name.
    Btw,Matt registered the kid without doing a DNA test?He’s a fool.Kate is a serial cheater,so the baby may not be his after all and he still gives his mother name to Kate’s baby.Men are dumb sometimes,and Matt is one now.I thought he was smart and would do a DNA test…now i think he’s stupid,dumb and a complete idiot.If he discovers one day he isn’t the boy’s dad,he will be humiliated in public.Idiot man.What he has in talent,he has in stupidity.Gee.
    Do a DNA test,Matt,before you have to pay child support to another man’s child.Well,he’s doomed anyway…so,good luck in court after you and Kate split,Matt.
    I used to be his fan,but after he dated Kate and still registered her baby without doing a DNA,i lost all respect for him.I still love Muse,but have no respect for Matt anymore…and that makes me feel sad.I thought he was smart…:(

  • silly

    Bingham Bellamy? Bing Bell? Ding Dong.

  • melody

    It’s a good name. Congrats Kate.

  • coco

    I think it’s great they’ve used their mothers maiden names for their son, plus the nickname being Kurt’s dad’s name! So it is all connected and is just nice, shows how much their mum’s mean to them. Why are people being so mean about it? At first I thought Bing sounded a bit daft but then I remembered Bing Crosby and then found out it was Kurt’s dad’s name, so it all fits perfectly as far as I can see. Can’t wait to see little Bing!

  • Frida

    Bingham? Bing?! Ok ok, it’s their child so they can do whatever they want…. but LOL!

  • *Belle*


  • Courtney

    It’s not uncommon to name a child after a grandparent Ophelia Dahl’s middle name is Magedelina after her paternal gandmother nor is it after family roots as for example Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon’s daughter Monroe is after her roots in county Derry Ireland. all that matters is the baby is healthy and everyone involved is happy. If the kid desn’t like his name he can change it when he gets older real stars have ended up with weirder names at birth that’s why alot of celebs don’t go by their real names some examples archabald Leich became Cary Grant Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou became George Michael Marion Robert Morisson beame John Wayne Patsy Neal Became Patricia Farokh Bomi Bulsara Became Freddie Mercury Daisy Bertha Mary Scudamore became Magaret Scudamore Natasha & Joely Richardson’s maternal great grandmother for whom Joely’s daughter is named

  • gugo

    stupid name!!!!

  • pluto

    Bingo Hawn Bellamny

    and bingo was his name…heh

  • Ardialo Bingham

    It was a great name, love it ^_<

  • helena

    it’s very original though, better than Mark

  • kat

    for all the people complaining – it is their baby and they can name it whatever they want.
    i did read that Bingham and Bing run in both sides of their family, if it is a name with meaning then it is a name worth having! congrats to them, i hope they enjoy their new addition!

  • P

    At least it’s a real name. Sure beat “Bear Blu”! ….oh and Morrocan AND Monroe. :)

  • CorBlimey

    How did they arrive at that name??? Is there a Friends episode where Chandler wears gingham and they decided to do the whole “couple-mash-up-thing” or were they just stoned?? Poor kid.

  • Sheigh

    I only think Bing bang bada boom bang! That’s Bingham sounds for me! Getting worse and worse and worse! Some babies will change their name once they become an adult, for sure!

  • Alicia

    Its less stupid when you know that its Matthew & Kate’s mothers maiden names respectively. Lack of reporting, JJ. Bingham sounds “veddy British” which makes total sense since Matt is a Brit but Bing pushes the silly envelope.

  • Tam

    For all those who say it’s a silly name, Bingham was Matt’s mother’s surname and Hawn was Kate’s mother’s surname so I think it’s cute of them :’)

  • Anna

    Bingham was Matt’s mother’s surname and Hawn was Kate’s mother’s surname, the nickname is for Kurt’s father…
    about the bullying, he will be, after all, british, and I’m pretty sure that the family will move to the UK for Muse. So he won’t be bullied for 2 reasons:
    1. Bingham most be a normal surname in the UK, and I don’t think people can make fun of that.
    2. British people are more respectful. Bing will not go to any school. I’m sure Bing will go to a good school were kids have modals, and RESPECT!
    Not like Americans!
