Celebrity Baby Names: Latest starbaby predictions!

By Sophie Kihm

This month of celebrity pregnancy announcements was quite eclectic. We have some celebs who go all out with their baby name choices–yes Geri Halliwell, I’m talking about you. Others lead more private lives, and choose less outrageous names to match. Great names can come out of each (Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch is certainly an A+ name). Although I have to admit, it’s a lot of fun trying to predict the name of Bluebell Madonna‘s future sibling.

Christina and David Arquette

Gender: boy

Siblings: Coco (previous marriage), Charlie West

It’s going to be another boy for David Arquette and his wife Christina. They chose the friendly, likeable name Charlie West for their first son, so I expect something along the same lines for his brother, if not a matching C name.

Boy: Alex, August, Eli, Henry, Jack, Liam, Milo, Oliver, Owen, Parker, Theo

*Update* Very close—Augustus Alexis!

Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Bluebell Madonna (previous marriage)

Bluebell Madonna frequents the lists of Craziest Celebrity Baby Names. Will Geri Halliwell choose another wild name for baby number two? I hope so!

Girl: Blossom, Juniper, Moxie, Poppy, Romy, Tigerlily, Trixie, Velvet

Boy: Caspian, Huckleberry, Loyal, Peregrine, Phoenix, River, Valentine, Zeppelin

*Update* Bluebell’s brother is Montague George Hector!

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Jack (previous marriage), Liam, Stella, Hattie, Finn

The McDermotts are often considered to have one of the best sibsets in Hollywood. Stylistically, the names work really well together, and they’re all perfectly on trend. Whatever they choose for baby number five, I know it’s going to be great.

Girl: Dolly, Elsie, Evie, Georgia, Ivy, Lucy, Minnie, Nellie, Ruthie, Tilly, Violet

Boy: Dashiell, Everett, Felix, Gus, Jude, Milo, Otto, Rudy, Toby, Wyatt

*Update* It’s a boy! Beau Dean McDermott

Rochelle and A.J. McLean

Gender: girl

Siblings: Ava Jaymes

Ava Jaymes is a sweet and sassy name that’s full of spunk. I expect the McLeans to use a similar formula to name their second daughter as they did with Ava–a well-liked first name with a spunky middle.

Girl: Chloe, Grace, Hazel, Leah, Lila, Kira, Maddie, Mia, Olivia, Ruby, Sofia

*Update* Welcome, Lyric Dean!

Lea Seydoux

Gender: unknown

Siblings: none

Lea Seydoux is having her first child, and I can’t wait to hear what she names him or her. Lea is a French actress, so I have a feeling she’ll choose a name that shares her European roots.

Girl: Amelie, Beatrice, Camille, Elinor, Emmeline, Madeleine, Silvie, Veronique

Boy: Adrien, Auguste, Charles, Henri, Julien, Luc, Quincy, Remy, Romain

*Update* A baby boy—George!

Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Christopher Carlton

Christopher Carlton is the appropriately British, classic name Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch chose for their first child. I suspect his sibling will get an equally sophisticated and stylish name–maybe one of the ones below.

Girl: Abigail, Amelia, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Emma, Olivia, Philippa, Samantha, Victoria

Boy: Andrew, Jonathan, Matthew, Nicholas, Samuel, Sebastian, Timothy, William, Zachary

*Update* Another boy—Hal Auden!

Amber Tamblyn and David Cross

Gender: girl

Siblings: none

It’s going to be a girl for Amber Tamblyn and David Cross! They could go in any direction with their first daughter’s name, but I’m guessing we’ll see something sweet, cute, and upbeat from this comedic couple.

Girl: Elsie, Frankie, Georgia, Gracie, Lola, Lulu, Phoebe, Poppy, Ruby, Stella, Susanna

*Update* Hello, Marlowe Alice!

Ciara and Russell Wilson

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Future Zahir (previous relationship)

Ciara‘s oldest son Future is named after his father. I wonder if this means a possible son will be called Russell, like his dad. For a daughter, I doubt Ciara is on the list, but maybe a fun musical or word name to match the boldness of Future.

Girl: Aurora, Bliss, Cadence, Eden, Emerald, Love, Sable, Sienna, Story, Xara

Boy: Ace, Austin, Carlton, Cassius, Chance, Justice, Maverick, Reign, Russell

*Update* I was right—baby girl is Sienna Princess!
