Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers and mothers-to-be out there. Today we give a shout-out to some outstanding moms of outstanding celebs, who happen to have—you guessed it—some outstanding names we love. Such as the distinctive Asalia (Zoe Saldana), Ata (Dwayne Johnson), Dellsena (Olivia Spencer), Delora (Vin Diesel, Gerda (Greta Gerwig), Lennis (Denzel Washington and Sarie (Margot Robbie). Here are some of the more wearable.


Alma Wahlberg is a mother of nine, including the actors Mark and Donnie, with an ancestry that’s been traced back to Nathaniel Hawthorne. The soulful name Alma—which is its literal meaning –became fashionable in England following the Crimean War Battle of Alma. It was a Top 100 US name from 1900 to 1927, and now ranks at #623 in the U.S., and 217 on Nameberry.
