Like many of you, I am an avid consumer of all genres of books from fantasy to crime fiction. When I’m reading, I love looking for new and unusual names to add to my ever-growing shortlist for future children. But it’s not only fictional characters who can supply us with interesting name ideas: many authors have great names that might warrant a Baby Berry namesake.. Here are some of my personal favourites and I really hope to see some of these amazing names crop up in the Birth Announcements soon.
A substantial list of celebrity babies born last month, including such A-listers as Sam Worthington’s Rocket Zot, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biels’ son Silas Randall (shown), and Kimora Lee Simmons’ little Wolfe.
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen went the British surname route for their third child: Montgomery Moses Brian, and Ralph Lauren has new twin grandbabies called Cooper Blue (boy) and Kingsley Rainbow (girl) via his daughter Dylan. And Donovan Leitch, son of Donovan Leitch, named his son…Donovan.

Since it began in 2011, the HBO drama Game of Thrones has affected the lives of millions of people in some way or another. Some cried for hours when their favorite characters died; some even had Game of Thrones-themed weddings.
But others went the extra mile—not only has the TV show been a part of their lives, but they have made sure that it will be a part of the lives of their children, too.
By naming their babies after the fictional Game of Thrones characters. That’s right—children of generations to come will have playdates with little Khaleesis, and hopefully the future Joffreys will make a point to show more kindness than their namesake.
