Nameberry’s First Starbabies: Where are they now?

Way back before celebrity baby bumps and the Brangelina brood, before Bronx Mowgli and Blue Ivy, we put together the first-ever collection of celebrity baby names in our 1988 book Beyond Jennifer & Jason. These “starbaby” names had the power to launch trends and inspire namesakes, we theorized, and we’d be hearing them far into the future.

The future has arrived, and those original celebrity babies have grown up and made names for themselves. Here, a look at some of the starbabies whose names were included in our original lists and what they’re doing now.

Zoe Kravitz, the actress-singer-model offspring of trendsetters Lisa Bonet and singer-songwriter-actor Lenny Kravitz, was one of only 238 American babies named Zoe in 1988, the year of her birth; now it’s Number 31. Middle name Isabella, last year’s Number 1 name, incredibly enough did not even rank in the Top 1000 at that time.
