Name the Next New Starbabies Challenge! Your predictions wanted!
By Tara Ryazansky
Everyone from pop royalty to reality stars to actual royalty seems to be expecting at the moment. I look forward to when the birth announcements start rolling in so I can see if I was right or if I at least came close with any of these name predictions.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child together. These two have been in the limelight since they were kids, yet they strike me as down-to-earth. I could see them using something a bit unique with laid-back ease. Nothing that’s over-the-top or trying too hard.
Religious reality TV stars Jill (Duggar) and Derick Dillard are due to have their first child this March. Between the Duggar’s famous love of Js and Derick‘s own alliterative name, you might expect something that begins with D. But Jill, who is expecting a boy, seems to make her own decisions.
Designer and former fashion model Kimora Lee Simmons is expecting a son with her banker husband, Tim Leissner. Simmons has three children; daughters, Ming and Aoki with Russell Simmons and a son named Kenzo from her previous relationship. I am guessing that she will pick something Japanese. Maybe she will go for another fashion reference to match with Kenzo.
My guesses: Itsuki, Yohji, Chikao, Kawakubo, Ryo, Kaito
Comic actors Isla Fisher and Sasha Baron Cohen are expecting their third baby. With two girls named Olive and Elula, I am very much looking forward to learning this couple’s name next choice. They seem to favor vowel heavy names that are both feminine and strong. I can only wonder what their boy style would be like.
Duchess Catherine and Prince William have a second child due in April, and everyone is curious to see what name the royal couple will choose this time. All of my guesses are the same ones that I made during their first pregnancy, because George never made my list. They are: Arthur, Albert, Henry, Mary, Diana, Charlotte
Singer Ashlee Simpson and her actor-musician husband Evan Ross are pregnant with their first child together. Simpson‘s son with ex-husband Pete Wentz is named Bronx Mowgli, so you can bet I am eagerly anticipating the name they pick for her daughter. Father-to-be is the son of Diana Ross, so I am expecting something supreme.
Actress and host of The Talk Sara Gilbert is expecting her first child with her musician wife, Linda Perry. Gilbert has two kids from her first marriage, a son named Levi and a daughter named Sawyer. I think they will go for something with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.
Keira Knightley and husband James Righton will be having their first child soon. The actress became known for starring in period dramas; Righton is an indie rocker who sings for the rave band Klaxons. I am guessing that they will pick something romantic and traditional yet a little bit off-kilter and fun.
What do you think of these predictions? I hope you will add your own in the comments section.

I’m guessing that the Jill and Derick Dillard are going to use a family name. Maybe something related to their middle names Michael/Michelle such as Micah, Micaiah, or Mitchell. Or maybe they’ll honour Derick’s dad and use a Richard variation or something with Rick in it such as Dixon, Rickard or Patrick.
If the new royal baby is a girl I’m guessing Caroline, Victoria, Alexandra or Frances with Artemis or Diana as one of her middles.

I’m thinking Eli, Asher, Nathan or Nathaniel for Jill Dillard’s baby

I’m hoping that a son of Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson will have Arne somewhere in his name. Arne Næss jr was Evan’s father, and they were quite close from what I know. It’s also ‘unique’ enough to match Bronx, I think. It would also be sweet if they used a Norwegian name to honour Evan’s ancestry.

For the next UK baby: Maybe Margaret Victoria Diana for a girl. Or Arthur Henry David for a boy.

I’m going to guess that Jessica + Justin won’t go for Camden since it was the last name of the family on 7th Heaven.. Just saying.

The royal baby: Matilda, Imogen, Elizabeth, Eleanora, or Gemma for girls. Arthur, Otto, Percy, William, or Henry for boys.
I’m hoping Matilda/Otto/Percy…….

For Justin and Jessica my money is on Memphis.
I love Deacon! It’s religious yet cool!
My guesses for Kimora are Kamiko, Makoto, Ryoko, Rio, Hiro, Honoka, Taro, the like
Isla and Sacha love a unique name, they have them themselves after all. Blossom, Xandra, Zion, Behati, Rivka, Calypso, Fionnuala, Genesis, assuming it’s a girl
Duchess Kate is definitely going to call her Diana Elizabeth something, maybe Diana Elizabeth Victoria, Diana Elizabeth Philippa, or Diana Elizabeth Catherine. I’d put money on Diana being in the name.
Ashlee and Evan. I’m thinking something kooky like Bronx, Maxwell for a girl (good Lord), and Ace. Maybe Dallas Ross! That’s not so bad.
Sara Gilbert. My guess is something like Alabama! That’d be cool!
Keira Knightley. I’m thinking Emma, Rosie, Lucy, Jemima, Margaret, Josephine or something very British sounding.

*assuming Keira Knightley is having a girl.

Oh! I forgot Diana. I like that, too.

I’m thinking Patrick for the Duggar baby!
