Band Name Origins:

  • His real name is Cornell Haynes, but his nickname was Nelly Nel [a play on Cornell], and everyone eventually just called him Nelly, so he used it. Submitted by: Curtis
  • Well his name is Cornell and there was this guy in sports named Nellie(i think that how he spelled it) and maybe instead Nelly just added a Y instead of ie and thats how his name was made. Submitted by: IvonaHumpalot

Stupid Band Names:

  • The elephant packed her bags and ran away to the circus. That's what the name makes me think of. Submitted by: YASMR
  • It sounds like he's a horse on a ranch Submitted by: Annie
  • It's a dude, for Pete's sake! Well, there was this baseball player named Nellie Fox and it was a dude. At least Nelly Furtado, another recording artist, is female. Submitted by: crazydon
  • It makes me think of Little house on the Prairie. That mean little daughter of the Olsens. Submitted by: B
  • I thought it was a girl at first. And I kept wondering. Then I saw the video for "Country Grammer" (which I thought was a country song) and then I realized that Nelly was a guy. It scared me. Submitted by: CrazyBandie

Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Cornell Haynes The 3rd - To all those "smart" people who are saying that his name is Tre, his nickname is Tre Genius, origin of tres meaning the third. Man ya'll are smart!. Submitted by: sammy_boo!!!
  • Chanel - I also now know that "Chanel" is not the proper way to spell her name. Her name is spelt Chanelle. It combines her mother and her father's name. Submitted by: Annie
  • Chanel - She wasn't born in 1996, she was born in 1994 because she is going into 7th grade. Submitted by: Annie
  • Chanel - To all of you that said she was born in 1996. She wasn't, because he says she was born February 27,1994 on his cd "Suit". Submitted by: jothani
  • Channel And Cornell - Nelly's son is called Cornel Haynes 3rd(Not Tre). Nelly's daughter Chanel was born in Febuary 27, 1994 3 months premature(3pounds and 2oz). Submitted by: loz
  • Tais - That's a really diffrent name, and it sounds real pretty. But it would sound better for a boy, not a girl. Nelly should've had a boy, because there's going to be a lot of boys all over your daughter, so control that, okay? Submitted by: Smiley
  • Chanel and Cornell Haynes the 3rd - Excuse me I don't know what ya'll are talking cause Nelly's kids are Chanel and Cornell Haynes the 3rd. Chanel was born on Feburary 27,1994 and his name is Cornell and he was born on March 2,1999. They call his son Tre. It only takes a true Nelly fan to know that stuff and that fan is me!!!!! Submitted by: Costa
  • Chanel And Tra - Submitted by: mizza
  • Chanel - Nelly's daughter Chanel was born February 27, 1994 not 96 to the person who said she was born in 96! Submitted by: Necy
  • Cornell Haynes 3rd - I think its good Nelly named his kid after himself and his father. It's like carryin on a tradition! Big up Nelly Submitted by: Isla

"The Longest Yard"That film was MTV's best release. OK, having Chris Rock and Adam Sandler there helps, but not only does he have songs in the soundtrack, he actually CAN play football. His acting ability is good, but who needs good acting when you can see a rapper turn into a running back that breaks tackles and getting into the house? - Rocky Mak
