new starbabies

By Tara Ryazansky

It seems like some of the most stylish high-profile celebrity couples are expecting all at once. If their taste in baby names is as on point as their red carpet looks, we can expect to hear some exciting announcements in the coming months. I thought I would take a try at guessing once again–and I would love to hear your predictions as well.

Actors Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling are having a baby. Mendes says she expects their child to be the “most beautiful, bilingual, part-superhero, well-dressed, romantic” ever. We wouldn’t imagine anything less. I hope they come up with something that’s hipster cool with a sexy vibe.

Dax-Shepard--Kristen-Bell-jpg

High profile celeb couple and unique baby namers, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have mentioned in more than a few interviews that they’re “completely stumped” when it comes to naming baby #2. They already have a one-year-old girl named Lincoln, a name that they chose when Bell was pregnant and decided to use regardless of the sex of their child.

Will they take the same unusual approach once again? Will they go with a theme and pick something like presidential Kennedy, or another Nebraska city like Omaha, or the auto-related Ford?

Here are my suggestions for the couple.

When LilKim named her new baby Royal Reign, I was taken aback for a second by this bold combo. I mean, a regal name makes sense for the queen of hip-hop and all, but it got me wondering –do aspirational names rule or are they a dying trend?

When I say aspirational names, I am not talking about names with a slight royal connection that gives them an air of wealth and importance. Nothing as subtle as a queenly namesake like Victoria or with a lofty meaning like Casper, which means “wealthy man”. I am talking about the more literal choices, such as Cash and Diamond, King and Prince, that try to project grandeur and luxury.

snooki-e-lorenzo

By Tara Ryazansky

Snooki, aka Nicole, the diminutive party-girl reality star from MTV’s Jersey Shore, took to her Facebook page to crowd-source baby name ideas from her fans.  I have a feeling that the typical Berry isn’t anxiously awaiting the next season of Snooki & JWoww, but that doesn’t mean we won’t help her out with our naming expertise, right?

Her guidelines?  “Something Italian, and beautiful.” and it has to pair well with Lorenzo, the surprisingly lovely name that she gave her first child with fiance, Jionni LaValle.

olympibboy

By Tara Ryazansky

The men hoping to compete for the US Olympic Team have names that are just as winning as the women.’s  I put together a list of some boy names that might win over new parents in 2014.

LeifAs in Biathlon team member, Leif Nordgren.  This name has a strong Scandinavian vibe, but feels usable here in the US because of its well known connections to Leif Erikson and Leif Garrett.  I think it’s a great choice, but I must admit, I am guilty of the mispronunciation “Leaf“.  Its authentic pronunciation is more like “Layf”.

Stokes- Stokes Aitken of the US bobsled skeleton federation has a compelling name.  This very unusual choice could be inspired by any of the counties and towns across America called Stokes.  It is a fairly common English surname with variants that date back to the Middle Ages.
