Category: hottest celebrity baby names
By Abby Sandel
Do celebrity baby names influence the names we choose for our children? Or are the stars just like us, drawn to the same styles and trends that appeal to parents everywhere?
It’s probably a little bit of both, but looking at the new US Top 1000, there’s no question that many a rising name also appeared on a high profile birth announcement.
Sometimes it takes a few months for a celebrity baby name to really catch on. Two of the hottest names in 2014 were 2013 choices: Everly, the daughter of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, and Axl, son of Fergie and Josh Duhamel.
But plenty of 2014 starbabies share their names with other children born in the same year.
We all know that the names of celebrities and their babies inspire real life baby names, but which celebrities’ names are the most influential right now?
To find out, we went behind the scenes at nameberry and looked at which names enjoyed the biggest bumps up in traffic at the beginning of 2011 over the same period in 2010.
Of course, many of these celebrity names are getting lots of views because they’re in the news: Flynn and Marlowe are newborn starbabies, Rooney is the hot star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But others are there simply because they’ve captured the public interest at this moment.
Here, in order of popularity, are the hottest celebrity-inspired names right now.
