Bryan Adams was definitely feeling festive last month. The Canadian rocker named his daughter after the Easter Bunny.

Mirabella Bunny Adams was born on April 22.

"She arrived like all good Easter bunnies on Easter Friday," Adams told People magazine. "Mother and baby are both well and happy. Thanks in advance for your kind thoughts and wishes."

If Bunny ever wants to talk about names pegged to the calendar, she could always sit down with January Jones, Nicole Kidman's daughter Sunday Rose, the singer June Carter or actress Gretchen Mol's daughter Winter.

The Run to You singer, now 51, was definitely aiming for something unique when it came to naming his first child. Neither "Mirabella" or "Bunny" were on the top 20 baby names for 2010.

Going for uniqueness when naming a child seems to be part of the celebrity DNA. Here are some of the greatest hits of celebrity baby names, via The Huffington Post:

Speck Wildhorse (John Mellencamp)

Java Jumala (Josh Holloway)

Fifi-Trixibelle, Little Pixie, Peaches Honeyblossom (Bob Geldof)

Zowie Bowie (David Bowie)

Moses Amadeus (Woody Allen)

Sparrow James Midnight (Joel Madden, Nicole Richie)

And let's not forget that Nicholas Cage, a huge Superman fan, named one of his kids Kal-El, Superman's birth name on planet Krypton.

Are these name choices adorable, sentimental or just bizarre?
