Celebrity Baby Names: How much influence do they have?

Today’s question of the week is: Just how influential are the names picked by celebrities for their kids?  Have they affected your choices in any way—either positively or negatively?

Has a particular starbaby—say a Seraphina or Clementine or Maddox—presented you with a name you’d never considered before but now find appealing?  Or, au contraire, do you think a name can be ‘ruined’ by being picked by a high-profile, influential pop figure who will bring it into the celebrisphere?

We know just by looking at the Social Security list just how much the general naming public has been impacted by so many of the names discovered or rediscovered by celebs.

But how about you nameberries?
