Beyonce and Jay-Z showed with their daughter Blue Ivy‘s name that they’re interested in a name’s numerical symbolism — Ivy = IV = 4, the couple’s lucky number. And choosing two names with exactly equal popularity would be a subtle and ingenious way to link the names.
Rumi is a really fascinating name whose only downside is that it sounds like the word “roomy.” It’s a Japanese female name meaning beauty and flow, as well as lapis lazuli — a gem that’s blue, which of course relates to Blue Ivy. The best-known Rumi is the 13th century Sufi mystic and poet, whose poem “The Diver’s Clothes Lying Empty” has influenced several contemporary authors, such as Vendela Vida, who wrote a novel with a nearly identical title.
Sir is an honorific-turned-name, the way King, Bishop, or Mister are.
But we have to say, we like Rumi and lot better than Sir. If Bey and Jay wanted to do the numerical thing, there are several boys’ names that fit the bill that sound kinda cooler.
Knight is another, similar name given to 50 boys last year that might make a better choice. Sampson is a great 50-boy choice, denoting strength without coming out and saying it, as is Reeve, which is the name of aviator Charles and writer Anne Lindbergh‘s youngest daughter.
Unisex names given to 26 boys last year include Indy, which was also used for 57 girls; Kirin, also given to 10 girls; Koi, also given to 19 girls; Ripley, also given to 128 girls. Other outstanding 26-boy names are Nicodemus, Odysseus, and Quintus.

The twin daughter and son of George and Amal Clooney are here. Names: Ella and Alexander, both solid classics that are also fashionable, though a name lover can’t help but wish for something a big more exciting! Though Ella and Alexander do go well together without being overly matchy, the first rule of good twin names.

Atlee, Attlee, and Atley are all spellings of the same English surname. It comes from the phrase “atte lee,” meaning someone who lived near a lee, a meadow, clearing, or a wood.
Atlee makes for a new entry in the category. Just 27 girls and 30 boys were named Atlee in 2015. That represents a new high. Could one high profile birth push Atlee into the mainstream? Other Palin family names, including Bristol, have risen in use since the family entered the spotlight in 2008.
Congratulations to the family!

The One Direction singer announced the big news on March 22nd, but didn’t comment on a name.
My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
If the rumors prove true, Liam and Cheryl‘s wild baby name fits right in with trending picks like Fox and Wolf. In fact, they wouldn’t be the first high profile family to choose the name Bear. Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu in 2011. Kate Winslet chose Bear Blaze for her youngest in 2013.
As of now, there’s no official confirmation of the baby’s name and no word on a middle. But it feels like a fitting choice for the stylish couple.

When asked about possible baby names a few months ago, the dad-to-be promised a “cool” name. That had plenty of name watchers guessing names more along the lines of Princess. Our Sophie Kihm nailed it – she predicted Sienna back in December 2016.
Sienna qualifies as cool, but it’s not nearly as edgy as Ciara‘s son Future. Sienna debuted in the US Top 1000 back in 1995. The name skyrocketed along with actress Sienna Miller‘s career, and has hovered around the Top 200 for a decade.
Congratulations to the family, and we can’t wait for baby pictures!

There’s been plenty of good news for Lind and Isaac to celebrate lately. Director Elvira‘s most recent film, Bobbi Jene, just won Best Documentary Feature, plus awards for cinematography and editing, at the Tribeca Film Festival.
It’s possible the family won’t share their name choice. After all, the couple never formally announced the pregnancy. But it makes for a interesting naming challenge. Oscar grew up in Miami, the son of a Guatemalan mother and Cuban father. Elvira hails from Denmark.
Names that work in English, Danish, and Spanish might be a challenge. There’s a great thread on our forums about the most multicultural names. Oscar and Elvira, if you’re still searching for the right name, it’s a great place to start!

Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen recently shared that they’ll be welcoming another son later this year.
The actors announced their news with an Instagram post yesterday, with a humorous nod to Beyonce.
Nameberry readers almost certainly have one question on our minds: since their firstborn’s name is Sid – just Sid – what will they name their new son?
Benedict Cumberbatch recently welcomed Hal, which could be a great brother for Sid.
Short names pack a big style punch these days, so there’s no shortage of options. Gus, maybe? Rex or Moe?
It’s a fun guessing game, but so far, they’ve kept quiet about possible choices.
This is yet another 2017 baby name announcement that we’re really looking forward to!

The MTV reality series ran six seasons, from 2006 through 2010. When the series debuted, many of the cast members were still in their teens. The Hills spun off an earlier MTV reality series, Laguna Beach: The Real O.C., a reality series built around a group high school seniors in California.
While the series is long since over, many of the cast members have remained in the public eye, and a reunion special caught up with them in 2016.

No word yet on the reason for her intriguing middle name. Hauts-de-Seine is part of suburban Paris, and La Seine is the river that winds through the city. Shayk’s modeling career has taken to her Paris frequently, but she’s a native of Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, on the Kazakhstan border. Bradley Cooper hails from Philadelphia.
Congratulations to the family!

I am so proud to introduce everyone to my newborn daughter! Her name is Batel Lu Bitton. She was born at 8lbs exactly and 21 inches long. She is so calm and graceful it’s hard to look at her not feel overwhelmed. I had a very long labor (12 hours) and pushed for an intense 22 minutes. We are head over heels in love with her ? welcome to the world little star, Mommy loves you ??
Batel is Jenna‘s first child with boyfriend Lior Bitton. At first glance, it’s a respelling of battle. But Lior is Israeli, and Batel is a Hebrew girls’ name meaning daughter of God. Emphasis is on the second syllable.
It’s almost unheard of in the US, and is sure to raise a few eyebrows. But does this one really belong in the crazy baby names category, or is it an import that deserves a second look?

Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington made headlines when they named their son Rocket in March 2015. The couple wasn’t the first to embrace the name. Pharrell named his firstborn Rocket in 2008. Director Robert Rodriguez is dad to sons Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue, and daughter Rhiannon.
Now there’s another set of brothers called Rocket and Racer in the celebrity baby names universe. Lara and Sam welcomed their second son back in October of 2016, but they’ve kept his name quiet. In a new interview, Lara revealed that their baby boy’s name is Racer.
While Racer is rare – fewer than 100 boys have been given the name in the US over the last decade – it’s in step with current trends. After all, Ryder ranks in the current US Top 100, and Ryker isn’t too far behind.
The couple has yet to comment on Racer‘s middle, or the specific inspiration behind their choice. One thing is for sure: when your firstborn is named Rocket, you probably won’t name his baby brother John or Ben.
