Category: Celebrity Names

by Sophie Kihm

As the Future Baby Name Guru to the Stars, celebrity baby names are always on my mind. I keep my eye on all the pregnancy rumors (can it please be true that Kate Middleton is having twins?), and I’ve been known to react to birth announcements at inopportune times (sorry, Professor)—because yeah, I have starbaby push notifications on my phone.

So which celebrities am I especially excited about this month? For starters, Alec and Hilaria Baldwin (shown) . Their supersized sibset is so chic and well-coordinated (not to mention artistic!)—they’re basically my prognostication dream. I’m also looking forward to Rachel Bloom.

One of the most anticipated show is The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, in her first TV outing since Friends. She was Rachel then—perfect for 1994—and this time she is—perfect for 2019—Alex.  But much more interesting is the name of her partner in crime/antagonist played by Reese Witherspoon—BRADLEY Jackson. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in that writers’ room session.

Let’s look at some of the other unexpected TV character names of this season:
