All the August Starbabies
An interesting month of August baby names on starbaby birth certificates. First of all, there were two sets of twins:
Then there were a pair of Poppys–a name definitely on the rise– including the daughter of Jenna Bush Hager, which was linked to a family presidential nickname. The Benedict Cumberbatches went classic with Christopher (and initials CCC), Jude Law picked the vintage Ada for his fourth child and Keira Knightly went for the sweet nickname Edie, while Lucy Liu used the more distinguished Rockwell.
Here’s the complete list:
Ada, sister of Rudy (m), Rafferty, Iris, and Sophia (Jude Law and Catherine Harding)

Amélie Moon is gorgeous, and I like Christopher Carlton, too!

I must be seriously out of touch… Who are all these people and why are they famous? I only knew a handful.

Eden (love on a boy)
Harper Ellis (ditto)
I love the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch’s son has the initials CCC, as they are my boyfriend’s initials!

Christopher Carlton is so lovely. I thought that the minute I heard he’s been named, and the alliteration is, again, lovely. Easily my favourite celebrity baby name in a long time, if not ever. Congrats to the Cumberbatches!

I love Frey! Glad to see it being used.
How have they managed to get Brielly from Madelyn Skylar?
@dindlee I never have a clue who any of the celebs are on her! Still enjoy reading their babies’ names though, although I do prefer reading the ones of celebs I recognise.

Yeah, I also don’t know any of these celebs. But the names!

Maybe just because I love Benedict Cumberbatch and have been waiting to hear his baby’s name for weeks, but Christopher Carlton is just lovely! I love that he included a family name, and the alliteration is so sweet!
Plus, any Marvel fan knows that the Chrises are the cutest!

@Essa They explained it was a combo of their names, Brian and Mirelly, but honestly I have no idea why they couldn’t just call her Brielle or something similar for a first name…
I love Amelie Moon, probably one of my favourite baby names of the year so far! Poppy Frances is also gorgeous!

Regarding Jude Law I swear this was his fifth child he has ‘Rafferty, Iris & Rudy’ with Sadie Frost and then had a child called Samantha Burke called Sophia and now he has this child with Catherine Harding called Ava not Ada….

Amelie Moon, Scarlett Winter, Violet Marie, Wren, Eden, Harper Ellis, Ozzie James, and Theo are my favorites.
