June is the month of Dads and Grads, but it’s also the month of June brides—there are statistically more weddings held in this month than in any other.

Here are some of the best-named high-profile June brides, arranged chronologically.

“Bad Blood” stars Taylor as a sort of James Bond/Wonder Woman/Katniss Everdeen warrior extraordinaire. After her fellow BFF-spy betrays her, she enrolls in assassin school and assembles a crack team of allies to help her take down her nemesis.

Do celebrity baby names influence the names we choose for our children? Or are the stars just like us, drawn to the same styles and trends that appeal to parents everywhere?

It’s probably a little bit of both, but looking at the new US Top 1000, there’s no question that many a rising name also appeared on a high profile birth announcement.

Sometimes it takes a few months for a celebrity baby name to really catch on. Two of the hottest names in 2014 were 2013 choices: Everly, the daughter of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, and Axl, son of Fergie and Josh Duhamel.

But plenty of 2014 starbabies share their names with other children born in the same year.
