Celebrity Baby Names Predictions: For starbabies on the way
By Sophie Khim
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.
Hazel is super sweet and subtly vintage. I think they’ll pick another on-trend name with retro roots.
*Update* Another color-nature name for the Krasinski clan—Violet!
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.
*Update* Another girl—Payton June!
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.
*Update* She does love word names—baby boy is Forest Leonardo Antonio!
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.
*Update* It’s a girl for Alanis Morisette—Onyx Solace!
Sibling: Jett Ling (g)
*Update* It’s a girl—Ray Ling Song!
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.
*Update* It’s a boy, and his name is Ashe Olson—the maiden names of Alexi and Seth’s mother. How sweet!
*Update* Hello, Izzy Oona!
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.
*Update* Soleil has welcomed a little boy named Story!
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.
*Update* Welcome, Lily Grace Victoria!
*Update* I was close with Luna and Tallulah—baby girl is Lula Rose!

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