Category: Celebrity Names

We know that celebrities of the past and present inspire popular baby names, from Audrey (Hepburn) and Ava (Gardner) to (John) Lennon and (Jimi) Hendrix. And sometimes it’s celebrities themselves who choose famous names for their children, with actors and musicians paying homage to legendary stars with their name choices.

Our report on this trend from a few years back highlighted picks like Mariah Carey’s Monroe and guitarist Slash’s Cash. Those names remain in the headlines, but now there’s a whole new class of celebrity baby names honoring iconic stars that came before them.

The Boston Marathon, rooted in ancient Greek history, is the oldest modern annual marathon in the world: it was established in 1897 – 120 years ago! Taking place every year on Patriots’ Day, it draws tens of thousands of marathoners from around the world who compete while hundreds of thousands of spectators watch, applaud, and shout words of encouragement.

Last week, the names of winners Geoffrey and Edna, Marcel and Manuela were added to those of the past. Let’s look back at the interesting names of eight earlier Boston Marathon winners, from Ellison Brown in the men’s open to Jacqueline Gareau in the women’s open to Marcel Hug and Edith Hunkeler in the men’s and women’s wheelchair division.

It’s been a trend in recent years for celebrities to delay the release of their baby’s name—usually for a few weeks, even months. However, actors Peter Dinklage and Josh Hartnett have never revealed the names of their children, and their daughters are five and two years old, respectively! Now they both have a second child on the way—will we find out the names of those babies, or continue to be left in the dark?

We also have some stars this month expecting Irish twins—two siblings born less than a year apart. Supermodel Bar Refaeli is pregnant for the second time, only months after giving birth to her daughter Liv. Lauren Gregory and Thomas Rhett were in the process of adopting a baby from Africa when they found out they were pregnant with a little girl. Now they have two babies on the way that should arrive around the same time. How will these celebrities go about naming their Irish twins? I have my predictions, but we’ll have to wait and see.
