Celebrity Baby Names: What’s next?

By Sophie Kihm

Every family has its own traditions and values when it comes to naming their children, and that’s true of celebrities as well. Some, like Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, like the meanings of their children’s names to be packed with significance. Their daughters are named Honor and Haven, which are both quite virtuous. Other stars, like James Corden and Cristiano Ronaldo, place value on family names. Cristiano Ronaldo‘s oldest son is a junior, the ultimate way to honor the father in many families. James Corden’s daughter is called Carey, his wife’s maiden name.

I’m particularly interested in seeing what naming values this month’s first-time celebrity parents will have. Will Nathan Kress choose a name from his side of the family? Would Mindy Kaling pick a name inspired by one of her heroes (like Nora Ephron, perhaps?) I can’t wait to find out!

SPORTING BABIES

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly welcomed twins called Eva and Mateo, a sister and brother to Cristiano Jr.

If it’s true, it’s a great choice of names for an international sporting star. Eva is a top 50 name in Ronaldo’s native Portugal, and Mateo is popular in Spain, where he currently plays. Both are safely in the US Top 100, and wearable in many other countries and languages.
