Starbaby predictions

By Sophie Kihm

This month of celebrity pregnancy announcements was quite eclectic. We have some celebs who go all out with their baby name choices–yes Geri Halliwell, I’m talking about you. Others lead more private lives, and choose less outrageous names to match. Great names can come out of each (Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch is certainly an A+ name).

It’s time to talk about the new starbaby arrivals of September 2016!

Two of these entries are for stargrandbabies. Cybill Shepherd‘s daughter, Clementine Ford, welcomed daughter Welles Molavi. And Mia Farrow’s daughter Dylan became mom to Evangeline.

Other highlights included Adam Levine’s soft and sentimental choice of Dusty Rose, and a new addition to the Alec Baldwin brood: Leonardo Ángel Charles.

Some big celebrity broods are about to get bigger–Kelsey Grammer is going to be a dad to seven kids, and Mel Gibson‘s girlfriend is expecting his ninth! Predicting names for such huge families is a daunting task. People’s naming styles tend to change over time, especially when they’ve been naming children for over a generation. That being said, sometimes name preference doesn’t change! There are some large celebrity sibsets that go together really well–the Gibson family is a great example.

Besides the Gibsons and Grammers, there are plenty more exciting celebrity baby name predictions this month. Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, and Pharrell Williams are all going to be parents of two. I’ve made my predictions for them (and more!) below.

Celebrity Baby Names: Word names are hot!

Celebrity word names

Once dismissed as crazy celebrity choices – remember Apple and Pilot – word names, for babies, thanks mostly to those celebs– have gone mainstream. From rising River to why-not Wolfe, many of the best boy names in 2016 are borrowed from the dictionary. They’re stylish, meaningful, and different, but still easy to say and spell, and starbaby parents from Liv Tyler to Terrence Howard have embraced the trend. Here are twelve of the best recent word names–they just might inspire a bold boy name choice for your own son.  By Abby Sandel.
