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.

This month’s predictions of celebrity baby names features two exciting firsts for me: my first twin prediction, and my first Duggar prediction! I’ve been crossing my fingers for a Duggar pregnancy announcement since I started this series six months ago, and now here it is. But that’s not all the good news this month. Mick Jagger is going to be a dad again, as is Sam Worthington. Plus, Jenna Jameson is having her third baby. This means we’ve got a lot of stylish, alliterative, and probably zany celebrity baby names birth announcements coming up. I’ve taken a stab at predicting them below.

This month’s set of celebrity naming styles is very eclectic. There’s Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh, who loves honor names; Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who famously made Wyatt a unisex name; and Mira Pak and Terrence Howard, who create their own names. We’ll have to wait and see if they follow the same technique or take a wildly different approach. For now, these are my predictions for the names of eight upcoming celebrity babies.

One of the most popular questions to discuss at Nameberry is this: what would you name twins?
It’s the kind of challenge Berries love, and for good reasons. Double the number of names to choose! A chance to link two names in some subtle – or maybe not-so-subtle – way. With both of my pregnancies, I had a list of boy names, girl names – and twin names, which didn’t necessarily duplicate the first two lists.
Plenty of celebrity parents have faced this naming challenge. The latest high profile parents seeing double are The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood and his new wife Sally Humphreys. The rock ‘n’ roll royals recently welcomed twin daughters. They kept it simple, opting for classic, feminine names without a lot of frills.
In honor of their arrival, let’s take a look at nine sets of celebrity multiples, and see if we can learn anything from their parents’ baby name choices.
