Actor Mike Myers Names Son Spike

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Mike MyersMike Myers and wife Kelly Tisdale recently had their first child. If you haven’t already heard, they named their son Spike. What’s the story behind their baby name choice? Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond  of Nameberry offer their insight on the celebrity baby name.

When Mike Myers and Kelly Tisdale named their new baby boy Spike, they made him an instant member of the Extreme Celebrity Baby Name Club.

Spike has always been thought of as a nickname, and a pretty spiky one at that. In fact, all the previous well-known Spikes have had different (and decidedly unmacho) names on their birth certificates. Director Spike Lee was born Shelton, musician Spike Jones was Lindley, filmmaker Spike Jonze was Adam, and British comedian Spike Milligan was Terence.

But the Myers boy can find other celebrity playmates with comparable names that (we hate to say it) once upon a time were equally considered canine. These include Michelle Hicks and Jonny Lee Miller’s Buster, Roseanne Barr’s Buck, Jamie Oliver’s Buddy Bear and Alicia Silverstone’s Bear, Justine Bateman’s Duke, Damon Dash’s Lucky, and Robert Rodriguez’s Rocket, not to mention such poodle possibilities as Coco and Gigi.

There are also a number of fictional Spikes, such as a vampire character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Fonzie’s cousin in Happy Days, and several others in soap operas, comic books, cartoons, and video games. Spike was also the name of Snoopy’s brother in Peanuts — but we won’t get into the other canine characters. It also has rock n’ roll cred as the name of an Elvis Costello album.

One nice bonding thing about the names of Mike Myers and his son Spike: they rhyme.
