The celebrity baby-naming year got off to an exciting start with the birth of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleckâ€™s second daughter, whose name remained a mystery for more than a week.
When it was finally announced, it was so surprising and lovely that it made the long wait worthwhile: SERAPHINA ROSE ELIZABETH, a shoo-in for one of the Best Celebrity Baby Names of the year.
Our other nominees for Best Celebrity Baby Girl Name:
MABEL PAINTER â€“ Chad Loweâ€™s little girlâ€™s name is a charming, quirky vintage choice, with an original artistic middle name from the hot occupational genre.
HELENA GRACE â€“ The classic Helena is a name just emerging from the attic, chosen by Gossip Girlâ€™s Kelly Rutherford.Â Its originality makes up for the lovely yet somewhat standard-issue Grace in the middle place.
PALOMA LOUISE â€“ Ana Ortiz chose this exotic-yet-familiar name for her daughter, with the original Louise, tres chic in Paris, in the middle.
PHOEBE MARGARET â€“ Phoebe is a mythological and biblical name thatâ€™s newly finding favor, chosen for her newborn daughter by Julianne Nicholson.
For boys, our nominees for Best Name are:
