Model Names

With the fall fashion shows in full swing — showing clothes for next spring, now that the sizzle of summer 2010 has barely cooled — our thoughts turn to models.

We could care less about their figures or their style; what we’re interested in, of course, is their names.  While nameberry includes lists of Supermodel Names (where you’ll find lots more choices) and Supermodel Baby Names, we thought we’d look at the current crop of model monikers.

The list is heavy on Eastern European names, given that many of the girls hail from there.  But there are some good ‘ol American names here as well.

Names of the hottest 25 models right now, according to the rankings at, are:

Some classic supermodel names are:

And the hottest newcomers?  Their names range from the ordinary to the exotic:

We love the name Gisele, it was the name of a dear aunt of mine, but am afraid that Gisele Budchen has ruined it for good! Not sure we want everyone thinking that is what we were inspired by….however we are still considering it should this child (expected in a couple weeks) be a girl. Would call her GiGi likely.

I have a similar situation as Pippa with the name Naomi. I love it, it’s the name of a treasured great-aunt, but the association with Naomi Campbell and Naomi Watts makes me pause.

I thought Tyra would be on your list. Constance is the only one I would use.

Jac (Jagaciak) first name is not Jac. That is her nickname, her first name is Monika.

And you forgot about Behati Prinsloo, Inguna Butane, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Agnete Hegelund, Bianca Balti, Toni Garrn, Imogen Morris Clarke, Selita Ebanks, Ana Beatriz Barros, Magdalena Frackowiak, Denisa, Karmen and Kamila!

Some other cool newcomers (some of them I cant remember and/or spell their last names!) are Marieke, Cintia Dicker, Milagros Schmoll, Sigrid Agren, Romina, Elisa Sedanoui, Marina Peres, Martina Cortez, Esti Ginzberg, Sedene Blake, Anais, Ieva, Frida, Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Bo Don, Lisanne de Jong, Rianne Ten Haken, Ylonka Verheul, Ymre Stiekema, Daniela de Jesus, Ella Drake and Eden Clark!

pippa and katybug:
I think both are beautiful names, and I know a Naomi, and no one ever thinks of Naomi Campbell or Naomi Watts when they think of her. I agree that Gisele does remind me a LOT of Gisele Bundchen, but that is mainly because of the spelling. If you like Gisele, you could use the name, just change the spelling to Giselle, which reminds me of the ballet and the fairytale.
