Celebrity Baby Names: Hot New Predictions!
By Sophie Kihm
This month’s predictions of celebrity baby names features two exciting firsts for me: my first twin prediction, and my first Duggar prediction! I’ve been crossing my fingers for a Duggar pregnancy announcement since I started this series six months ago, and now here it is. But that’s not all the good news this month. Mick Jagger is going to be a dad again, as is Sam Worthington. Plus, Jenna Jameson is having her third baby. This means we’ve got a lot of stylish, alliterative, and probably zany celebrity baby names birth announcements coming up. I’ve taken a stab at predicting them below.
Even though the names of Mick Jagger’s children seem all over the place in terms of sibset cohesion, there’s one thing they all have in common: undeniably British style. I have a feeling baby number eight’s name will fit right in.
*Update* Yep, they went British—baby boy is Devereaux Octavian Basil!
Even though Jon Heder is known for playing a character named Napoleon, his personal naming style is much tamer. His sons have very traditional names, while his daughter has an uncommon, but on-trend unisex name—Evan. Using that as my guide, I made picks for the Heders that would be perfect for their sibset.
Girl: Anna, Brenna, Claire, Grace, Harper, Kate, Leah, Maggie, Nora, Paige, Piper
Siblings: Frankie (g)
Frankie is definitely having a moment right now. It’s cute and not-so-serious, and makes a great nickname for some terrific longer names. Frankie Rodriguez is just Frankie though, so I have a hunch Grace and Adam might choose another nickname-y name for baby number two.
Girl: Clara, Etta, Evie, Georgia, Ivy, Josie, Lena, Libby, Lucy, Nellie, Rosie
The Stuber sibset is preppy as can be, with a healthy dose of Southern charm. If they stick with that theme, I bet their third child will have one of the following names.
*Update* A boy—Grey Douglas!
Gender: boy girl twins!
Double trouble–a boy and a girl are on the way for the Ackles family. Twins can be tricky to name. You want the pair to be cohesive on its own, but also fit in with the larger sibset. I’m excited to hear Jensen and Danneel’s choices, especially since their daughter has such a fun name.
*Update* The twins are here! Baby girl is Arrow Rhodes, and baby boy is Zeppelin Bram.
Something tells me this baby is going to have another double J name. Jenna Jameson’s twin sons’ names aren’t a complete match stylistically, so it’s a total toss up in terms of her approach for baby number three. Will she go with a more traditional and well-liked name a la Jesse? Or choose a trendy unisex name like Journey?
*Update* Not a J name—a girl named Batel Lu!
Siblings: Rocket Zot
Rocket Zot is probably the craziest celebrity baby name you’ve never heard of. This Australian couple gave their son a very unique combination of names, and I have no doubt that they’re going to do it again. The only question is, what combo will it be this time?
*Update* Welcome, Racer!
The Duggars are known for their baby name choices, but Jessa and Ben have promised not to do a letter theme. Instead, it seems as if they are naming their babies after famous Christians. The Seewalds are not afraid to go bold with baby names, so I didn’t hold back when making my predictions. I wouldn’t put it past them to name a daughter Pink (which I’m secretly rooting for)!
*Update* It’s a boy—Henry Wilberforce!
