M.I.A's

Real (Crazy) Baby Name

3/23/2009 3:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We got our hands on singer M.I.A's new baby's birth certificate and, as she disputed on her blog, the baby's name is not Ickitt. That's just ridiculous, who in their right mind would name their baby that? The real name happens to be Ikhyd.

M.I.A.According to the document, Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam officially named her son Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman, common spelling.

Another interesting fact -- baby faced M.I.A's birth date is listed as 7/18/75 which makes her real age 33.

that poor child better grow up to be an astrophysicist or something, otherwise that child is scarred for life with a name like that.

thats the thing about americans for god's sake remember we all live on the planet earth not the planet america although it seems so sometimes..while you are making fun of non americans names consider that your names come from other nations too.. and unlike most americans names... it most probably has a meaning . she is asian so i expect that is the case... and considering one of your bimbo dimwit dunces working on tmz couldnt pronouce DELHI.!!!.. how surprising is this silllyness.
only americans take pride in being stupid...

That is NOT a common name in the UK for your information. In fact, it's a well and truly far fetched choice of name lol.
