Mother’s Day Names: Celebrating the latest celebrity moms!

Amalia to Onyx to Zen

Happy Mother’s Day! This year, we celebrate the veteran moms – the celebrities who have gracefully combined high profile careers with parenting and added another baby to the mix since last May. These stylish mamas have chosen a mix of traditional and surprising names for their new additions. Plenty of these could prove influential in the upcoming years. What are your favorites? From Amalia to Zen, there’s something here to suit every style. By Abby Sandel


Natalie Portman made headlines when she named her firstborn Aleph in 2011. Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Recently she and husband Benjamin Millepied added a daughter to their family. Amalia is a slightly more conventional choice, but sticks with the A theme. With Amelia near the top of the popularity lists, cousin Amalia promises to inspire.

It’s Ukraine, without any “the” preceding it.

I don’t think that is actually a picture of Alanis Morrisette.

I love Amalia and Caleb. I also like Nick Lacheys children’s names, Phoenix and Camden. but I prefer Brooklyn for a boy.

Blake’s daughter is named Inez not Ines. She already told the media to fix the spelling, please stop spreading the wrong one.

Onyx I much prefer on a boy. It actually debuted for boys in 2018.
