As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to reflect on the year in celebrity baby names. It was an exciting time—three (yes, three!) Kardashians babies were born this year, Chicago, Stormi, and True. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend named their son Miles Theodore, Cardi B and Offset gave their daughter the name Kulture Kiari. Other notable celebrity baby names from 2018 include Colette Koala (Macklemore), Marvel Jane (Pete Wentz) and Rani Rose (Kate Hudson).

Though there weren’t as many Berry baby name announcements in November as their usually are, there were still some beauts—great names, first and middle combos, and sibsets., as in Bennett and Lennox for girls, Eliza Kit and Lou Magdalena, and sibset Seraphina, Casper and Pomeline. Also lots of interesting and unique nicknames.
