The Cutest Celebrity Baby Names

gwyneth-paltrow-apple

I walked into a Tribeca nail salon last weekend, killing time before a lunch date, and there getting a manicure was Gwyneth Paltrow.  And the adorable little girl quietly rearranging the nail polish colors?  None other than the infamous Apple.

Call me starstruck, but watching the tall (yes, very tall), gorgeous Gwyneth – who was wearing what seems to be the New York Yummy Mummy uniform du jour of black riding pants, black riding boots, and a baggy tee shirt — talk to her daughter, I thought: Apple is a really cute name.  A little quirky, maybe, but not deserving of all the ridicule that’s been heaped on it.  Cute.

So that got me thinking (I had a lot of time to think, while pretending not to be staring at Gwynnie) about other cute celebrity baby names.  Not bizarre celebrity baby names, not trendy celebrity baby names.  Just the cutest choices of recent years.

Here, my nominees:

ADELE GEORGIANA (Molly Ringwald)

APPLE BLYTHE ALISON (Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin)

BIRDIE LEIGH (Busy Phillips)

BRONWYN GOLDEN (Angela Bassett & Courtney B. Vance)

CALLUM LYON (Kyle MacLachlan)

CHARLIE TAMARA TULIP (Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O’Connell)

CLEMENTINE JANE (Ethan Hawke)

COCO TRINITY (Diane Farr)

DEXTER LLOYD (Charlotte Church)

DOLLY REBECCA ROSE (Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O’Connell)

DOMINO CARMEN (India Hicks)

DONOVAN RORY MacDONALD (Noel Gallagher)

EMME MARIBEL (Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony)

EVER GABO (Milla Jovovich & Paul Anderson)

EVERLY BEAR (Anthony Kledes)

FRANCES PEN (Amanda Peet)

HARLOW WINTER KATE (Nicole Richie & Joel Madden)

HENRY STORY (Minnie Driver)

KENZO LEE (Kimora Lee Simmons & Djimon Hounsou)

MABEL PAINTER (Chad Lowe)

Winter Baby Names: What’s Your Favorite?

winterbaby

We’ve noticed a lot of expectant parents find their way to nameberry searching for winter baby namesNicole Richie may have sparked the thought last year when she chose one of the winter baby names for her daughter, Harlow Winter Kate.  Or perhaps it was Mad Men‘s January Jones who trained the spotlight on the idea of winter names.

Names that symbolize winter (or say it straight out) might be thought of as a branch of day names, the ancient class of names used by some cultures in Africa and elsewhere based on the day or time of year a baby is born. These can denote a time of day (Morning, Afternoon), a day of the week (like Nicole Kidman’s Sunday), a month (we all know about June and August), a holiday such as Easter or Christmas, or a season, with Summer and Autumn being much more popular in the past than Winter.

Day names of all kinds are undergoing a revival as parents search for unique names that carry personal meaning. Since many of the parents flocking to nameberry right now are expecting over the winter months, this seems an appropriate topic for a nameberry poll. Of the newest, freshest choices for girls, what’s your very favorite?
