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.

My guesses: Sawyer, Camden, Rowan, Ever, Sloan, Laurel

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.

My guesses: Duncan, Deacon, Tahan, Robin, Elijah, Levi

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.

My guesses: Micah, Adlai, Reid, Acacia, Ione, Nova

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.

My guesses: Prima, Abilene, Lavender, Bodhi, Lieke, Theodosia

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.

My guesses: Smith, Walker, Stone, Indigo, Phoenix, Merit

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.

My guesses: Percival, Bennett, Giles, Cleo, Delphine, Marjorie

What do you think of these predictions? I hope you will add your own in the comments section.
