How does she do it? Once again, CaraMichelle has managed to unearth the names of a prodigious number of celebrity births.
Both Deschanel sisters gave birth in October, but it was Zooey‘s name choice, Elsie Otter, that attracted the most attention—particularly the middle name, which was seen, for the most part, as an adorable new animal option. Another high-powered celeb, Carey Mulligan, picked the more classic Evelyn Grace, while Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick went the cut-to-the-nickname route with Hank.

There are many shades of cool, especially when it comes to baby names, ranging from classy classics to creative concepts. Here, Nameberry gives its stamp of approval to 13 celebs who have recently nailed it with the following fantastic choices.
Best Uncharted Territory Prize goes to Russian model Anne Vyalitsyna, aka Anne V who chose a previously unheard place name for her daughter, unusual and yet on trend with the new vogue for wintry names like Snow and Frost, Winter and January.

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.

What a busy week! There’s been a royal birth – no, not that royal birth. A candy entrepreneur welcomed colorfully named twins. A reality star gave birth to a son, and so did a famously private Hollywood power couple.
Every celebrity baby name in the headlines this week was on trend – colors and surnames, Biblical boys and place names for girls.

Everyone from pop royalty to reality stars to actual royalty seems to be expecting at the moment. I look forward to when the birth announcements start rolling in so I can see if I was right or if I at least came close with any of these name predictions.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child together. These two have been in the limelight since they were kids, yet they strike me as down-to-earth. I could see them using something a bit unique with laid-back ease. Nothing that’s over-the-top or trying too hard.
