Way back before celebrity baby bumps and the Brangelina brood, before Bronx Mowgli and Blue Ivy, we put together the first-ever collection of celebrity baby names in our 1988 book Beyond Jennifer & Jason. These â€śstarbabyâ€ť names had the power to launch trends and inspire namesakes, we theorized, and weâ€™d be hearing them far into the future.
The future has arrived, and those original celebrity babies have grown up and made names for themselves. Here, a look at some of the starbabies whose names were included in our original lists and what theyâ€™re doing now.
Zoe Kravitz, the actress-singer-model offspring of trendsetters Lisa Bonet and singer-songwriter-actor Lenny Kravitz, was one of only 238 American babies named Zoe in 1988, the year of her birth; now itâ€™s Number 31. Middle name Isabella, last yearâ€™s Number 1 name, incredibly enough did not even rank in the Top 1000 at that time.
