The Best Celebrity Baby Names

Bizarre celebrity baby names always grab the headlines, but not every baby in Hollywood has one. In fact, some celebs have gotten really creative with their children’s names — and we love what they came up with! While these elegant celebrity baby names aren’t so odd they’re awful, they’re definitely not traditional (although tradition has its place as celebs like Anne Hathaway have shown us; she named her son Jonathan).

And here’s the thing: If you think you felt a lot of pressure when trying to come up with your kid’s name, try adding fame and paparazzi to the mix.

Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your future baby’s name, or you just feel like checking out a really good list of awesome names that famous actors, musicians, and fashionistas have chosen for their offspring, we’ve got ’em right here. What’s your favourite one out of these celebrity baby names?
