    Smile When Names Collide

    When Names Collide




    When high-profile celebrities get together it's second nature for entertainment writers to bestow a short, catchy, headline-friendly nickname upon them. Check out a few of the best, worst, and just plain made-up portmanteaus ahead.

    1. Brangelina



    The biggest, most-often used celebrity portmanteau out there is Brangelina. It didn't take long for this one to catch on when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went public with their relationship in 2005, and it might be the only one that's seen steady use even after its novelty has long worn off. It might also be the only reason you've ever heard the word "portmanteau" before.

    2. TomKat



    Whether Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes like the nickname or not, TomKat is probably the cutest celebrity portmanteau in the gossip rags. It's the kind of thing you could actually see them using for an inoffensively non-denominational Christmas card that says something like "Happy Holidays from TomKat and Suri!" (Suri would probably wear an adorable elf hat.)

    3. Bennifer



    Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez broke up way back in 2004, but we'll always remember two things about this famous pairing: Bennifer and Gigli. On the bright side, Jennifer Garner dodged a cheesy portmanteau thanks to the obvious combination of her and her husband's names already being used up.

    4. Vinnifer



    Yet another twist on the name Jennifer, Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston's portmanteau didn't see much use even during the one year they were together.

    5. Spederline




    It was a baffling romance with an equally baffling (and rarely used) portmanteau. It's no surprise that neither the nickname nor the relationship lasted more than two years.

    Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom can boast one of the cutest relationships on reality television, and they've also got one of the best recent portmanteaus. Eat your hearts out other Kardashian sisters.

    7. Tay-Squared



    Back when Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were busy being ridiculously cute together, they had an appropriately cute nickname to go along with their teenage romance. Unfortunately Tay-Squared probably looks better typed out in mathematical notation.

    8. Robsten



    Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's annoyingly undefined relationship has an equally annoying pet name. While the Robsten moniker might make Rob giggle, you can bet it gets an eyeroll out of Kristen.

    9. Speidi



    In the summer of 2008, coverage of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt reached such a fever pitch that some blogs vowed to go an entire month (a month!) without writing about them. Since then it's become increasingly rare (months as in plural) to see any reference to either of the former Hills stars let alone the nickname Speidi.

    10. Wishful Thinking: Staquin



    Reader warning, from here on out we're picking out celebrity couples and trying out a few portmanteaus of our own making. True Blood love birds Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have not had the privelege of having their names combined by hack writers... until now. Anna and Stephen we dub thee Staquin.

    11. Wishful Thinking: Clugh



    If Claire Danes' husband Hugh Dancy were better known perhaps they might actually be wrtten about as the awesomely simple Clugh (pronounced Clue).

    12. Wishful Thinking: Rake


    A lot of ifs here. If Rihanna and Drake were ever actually dating, if anyone cared enough to write about it, and if they got a nickname, then Rake would be perfect.

    13. Wishful Thinking: Jessicash



    Again, probably the only reason this perfect portmanteau isn't being used is because so few people actually know that Jessica Alba's husband's name is Cash Warren. Feel free to use this one in private, Jessica.

    14. Wishful Thinking: Cam-Rod



    Cameron Diaz is a Hollywood A-lister and Alex Rodriguez is one of the richest professional baseball players ever so why don't these two already have a portmanteau? We suggest either Cam-Rod or CamEx for this still-new couple.
