Celebrity baby naming is unpredictable, but that doesn’t stop us from trying! Just as we’re shocked when famous parents chooses something way out of left field for their child (a la Jamie Oliver‘s Petal Blossom Rainbow or Gwyneth Paltrow’s Apple), it’s just as surprising to hear them pick a common name (like Michael Buble’s Noah or Matt Damon‘s Isabella). That being said, there are some tricks to celebrity baby name predictions, so let’s look into the crystal ball.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski

Gender: unknown

Sibling: Hazel

Hazel is super sweet and subtly vintage. I think they’ll pick another on-trend name with retro roots.

Boy: August, Charlie, Felix, Finn, Julian, Louis, Oscar, Russell, Spencer, Toby, Walter

Girl: Ada, Cora, Fiona, Gemma, Georgia, Helena, Ivy, Phoebe, Poppy, Ruthie, Zara

Erica Hanson and Ike Barinholtz

Gender: unknown

Sibling: Foster (g)

The hilarious Ike Barinholtz (Morgan Tookers on The Mindy Project) and his wife Erica went the androgynous surname route for their little girl. I expect they’ll choose something similar for baby #2, regardless of gender.

Boy: Coleman, Cormac, Fielding, Gardner, Hart, Holt, Huck, Shepherd, Sumner

Girl: Abbott, Campbell, Connelly, Hadley, Halsey, Hollis, Madden, Sheridan, Sloane

Holly Madison and Pasquele Rotella

Gender: unknown

Sibling: Rainbow Aurora

Holly Madison surprised us all when it turned out she had secretly (and subtly) revealed the first name of her daughter via Twitter. In this article she reveals that she likes word names as well as Disney-inspired ones. Keeping that in mind, here are my predictions.

Boy: Anthem, Charming, Diesel, Dragon, Echo, Flynn, Hero, Spirit, Temple, Treasure, Valentine

Girl: Ariel, Chrysanthemum, Bliss, Bluebell, Fantasia, Forever, Holiday, Jubilee, Meadow, Pixie

Alanis Morisette and Mario Treadway

Gender: unknown

Sibling: Ever Imre (b)

Imre, Alanis Morissette and Mario Treadway’s son’s middle name, is not one you hear often in this country. It’s actually a Hungarian name, which ties back to Morissette’s heritage. Might we see another Hungarian choice? Or perhaps something from her French-Irish side of the family? More word names? We’ll have to wait and see.

Boy: Bence, Hawk, Judge. Justice, King, Laszlo, Maverick, Noble, Rogue, True

Girl: Emerald, Fable, Harbor, Haven, Ireland, Lyric, Mika, Rebel, Sailor, Story

Lisa Ling and Paul Song

Gender: unknown

Sibling: Jett Ling (g)

Wow, we have a lot of word name-loving celebs this month! Lisa Ling named her daughter Jett back in 2013, and I’m curious to see if she chooses another unisex word name for baby number two.

Boy: Archer, Canyon, Cove, Dashiell, Dax, Fletcher, Fox, Kit, Park, Rex, Rocco

Girl: Bird, Domino, Grey, Indie, Liv, Max, Monroe, Poet, Scout, Sea, Sutton

Alexi Ashe and Seth Meyers

Gender: unknown

Siblings: none

Late Night host Seth Meyers’ wife Alexi is pregnant with their first. It’s hard to make predictions about name choice without an older sibling’s name to look to (they do have a dog named Frisbee, not that that helps), but I have a feeling this couple isn’t going to choose anything wild and crazy.

Boy: Bennett, Conrad, Eli, Emmett, Ford, Graham, Henry, Jay, Judson, Lawson, Reid

Girl: Amelie, Cecilia, Eleanor, Eve, Fiona, Ivy, Lily, Madeleine, Nadia, Nina, Rosie

Paige Mitchell and Eddie Murphy

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Eric, Christian, Bria, Myles, Shayne, Zola, Bella, and Angel (g)

It’s baby number nine for Eddie Murphy! With this many kids, it’s hard to keep sibsets super cohesive. But taking inspiration from his youngest ones, I would expect the baby to be named…

Boy: Ace, Cash, Chaz, Jax, Jayce, Lynx, Phoenix, Xander, Zaire, Zack

Girl: Asha, Asia, Faith, Jade, Jasmine, Jolie, Journey, Liberty, Nala, Skyla

Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Poet Sienna Rose, Jagger Joseph Blue (g), and Lyric Sonny Roads (b)

After three babies, I think we have a pretty good handle on Soleil Moon Frye’s naming style–artistic word names. She’s a fan of gender-bending though, so I might as well have left off the boy and girl labels.

Boy: Crescent, Drummer, Freedom, Jazz, Journey, Ocean, Mystery, Rhapsody

Girl: Dancer, Dreamer, Fable, Galaxy, Pastel, Silhouette, Swan, Velvet, Whimsy

Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild

Gender: unknown

Siblings: none

Coming from such a high-profile family, the pressure’s on Nicky Hilton Rothschild to choose a marvelous name for her son or daughter. Something tells me it’s going to be a little bit dramatic and extravagant, but still wearable.

Boy: Alastair, Augustine, Bennington, Charleston, Maximilian, Reginald, Whittaker

Girl: Angeline, Aurelia, Calixta, Clarissa, Emmeline, Simone, Valentina, Veronique

Liv Tyler and David Gardner

Gender: unknown

Siblings: Milo and Sailor Gene

When both of Liv Tyler‘s sons were born, their names were on the cusp of cool. I suspect she will make a similar choice when it comes to her third child.

Boy: Asa, Cyrus, Dashiell, Finn, Jude, Nico, Otto, Phoenix, Reid, Royce

Girl: Carys, Delilah, Elodie, Ivy, Luna, Marnie, Matilda, Pearl, Tallulah

My favorite suggestions are for the Hilton-Rothschild baby! Dramatic, extravagant, and wearable is probably my new favorite way to describe my naming style!
