Although everyone is wondering and talking about what the name of North’s baby brother will be, I am just as excited to learn about the names these other celebrities will pick for their babies. Let’s see how close I come to answering correctly.

Looking at this week’s baby names in the news, you might think that parents are all about short names. We’ve heard high profile birth announcements for Edie and Della, Iyla and Poppy – no formal names required.
But it’s not that simple. Sure, Ava and Mia are in the current girls’ US Top 10. But so are Olivia and Isabella. Cheerful nickname Liam is the Number 2 name for boys, but classic William isn’t far behind.
For nearly every short name that’s trending upwards, there’s a longer possibility that’s also on the rise.
There was an exceptionally long list of new starbabies born in July, and here is CaraMichelle’s comprehensive rundown.
Among the highest profile arrivals were Charlize Theron‘s daughter August, Sophie B. Hawkins’s Esther Ballantine, Brandon and Leah Jenner’s Eva James (a middle name increasingly worn by girls), Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross‘s daughter Jagger Snow, Macklemore’s Sloane Ava Simone, Jeff Goldblum’s Charlie Ocean, and Jaime King‘s Leo Thames.
August is here and that means warmer temperatures and soaking in the last sweet days of summer before school starts. Here are some inspiring names of writers, actors, and pioneers that all share August birthdays.
Tennyson – One of the most influential Victorian poets, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, was born August 6, 1809. Tennyson was appointed as Poet Laureate by Queen Victoria and served for 42 years. Tennyson is an English surname meaning son of Dennis. Actor Russell Crowe used this poetic name for his son, Tennyson Spencer in 2006.
These famous television show hosts have the gift of gab. Let’s have our own chat about their names!
Conan is an Irish name meaning little wolf or little hound. Conan has long been associated with the character Conan the Barbarian. Only 45 babies were named Conan last year, making it a great alternative to similar, popular names like Connor.
