One of the most interesting new starbaby names in June is a place name we haven’t heard before—Alaska, the choice of model Anna Vyalitsyna. Another that caught our eye is the boyish nickname name used for their little girl by Jack and Lisa Osbourne: Andy Rose.

Nameberry celebrates dads. From celebrity dads to the fathers who star in our own lives, we’ll be looking at the various intersections of fatherhood and baby names all week. Wishing you a Happy Father’s Day, berries!
Celebrity baby names are always in the spotlight. But how about the names of the celebrities themselves?
But then there are those other dads, the ones with the cool names. The celebrities whose names set trends.
This month saw some high-profile baby name announcements, like those of Scarlett Johansson and Savannah Guthrie, and also such surprising choices as Saint Laszlo and Kiki-Kate. Rocker Dave Grohl chose the Shakespearean Ophelia for his third daughter, following more conventional choices, and fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff pulled a gender switch when she named her daughter Bowie Lou.
Here’s CaraMichelle’s full roster of starbabies born in August:

Let’s face it : the blank slate of naming your first child can be intimidating.
Will you stick with the classics? Or would you be happier with a Cricket instead of a Charlotte, a Wylie rather than a William? You’ve always liked your mother’s maiden name, Davis, and then there’s his fabulous Great Aunt Marguerite – but do you want to hand down family names, or is it better to start fresh? Is Wyatt too trendy? Is Cordelia too obscure?
It’s a riddle, but despite dire warnings of name regret, most parents seem to choose a perfectly suitable name for their firstborn.
Welcoming a second child means that you’ve got a crib and car seat already, but when it comes to names, you’re back at the beginning.
Or are you? Because not only will you revisit many of the questions from the first round, you’ll also have to consider whether baby #2’s name matches, clashes – or matches too much – with the big brother or sister-to-be.
As I’m sure you’ve discovered, it’s just about impossible to keep up with the arrivals of every new celebrity baby that comes along. Well, luckily, there’s someone who is going to be doing it for us. Beginning here and now, CaraMichelle, will be posting a comprehensive list of new starbabies in this space every month, so all you stargazers can get a broad picture of what’s new in the celebrisphere– the A-listers and beyond. And here’s the first edition. (Thanks, Cara!)
