Happy Father’s Day to all, and especially to these 12 celeb dads who have fathered new babies in the year since last Father’s Day—some for the very first time and some who have added to their growing families (Mel Gibson’s 9th, Mick Jagger’s 8th, Kelsey Grammer’s 7th). And since we gave a Nameberry shout-out to the moms of beautifully-named babies in the past year, some you won’t be seeing here: Ryan Reynolds and Blake Liveley’s Ines, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunos’s Dimitri Portwood, and Jason Sukeikis and Olivia Wilde’s Daisy Josephine.

Nothing can bring a father and son closer together than sharing their name. And as it happens, an inordinate number of male superstars have been juniors (or IIIs or IVs—even Vs)—whether because the name was something to live up to or an incentive to distinguish themselves as individuals. In anticipation of Father’s Day we look at 13 stars who share their parent’s name, and the various ways these pairings have played out.

One subtle way to celebrate Father’s Day is to give a future Daddy’s girl or boy a name with ‘father’ in its meaning, especially if the baby is due around this time of year. These baby names stretch across many cultures, some of them with religious significance and, as you will notice, the majority starting with the letter ‘A’..
Abba—a masculine name derived from the ancient Aramaic meaning “father,” Abba has been in use since the first century. Abba Eban (born Aubrey) was a noted Israeli diplomat and scholar, onetime ambassador to the US and to the UN. The name of the 70s Swedish pop group ABBA is an acronym of the members’ names–Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid.
