The Cutest Celebrity Baby Names

The Cutest Celebrity Baby Names

Cute celebrity baby names are having a moment. Singer and YouTube star Rydel Funk recently revealed her daughter's name to be Sweetie Mary, which is so cute, some have accused it of being cloying.

Model Jessica Hart got similar criticism after naming her daughter Baby-Rae in 2020, as did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when they named their baby Lilibet Diana.

What makes cute names so cute? It's an imperfect science, but here are some factors that make names cuter:

Cute Imagery

Baby names associated with cute things are automatically more adorable. You might look for nature names that are especially cute, such as Daisy, Bear, and Moon. Another option is names related to things that are small, as in Teddy, Dot, and Elvie.

Nicknames

Nicknames are almost always cuter than full names, which is part of their appeal. A nickname can transform a serious, formal name into an adorable and approachable form, like Maggie does to Margaret, or Sam does to Samuel. Other nicknames include terms of endearment, like rising choices Buddy, Sonny, and Honey.

Repeating Sounds

There's something about names with repeating sounds that sound so cute to our ears. These names are often nicknames, but parents are increasingly putting choices like Coco, Gigi, and Vivi on the birth certificate.

Alliteration — whether between first and middle names or first and last names — is another common strategy to make names cuter.

"EE" Endings

The upturned "EE" ending of names like Amari, Charlie, and Ellie is undeniably cute. Diminutives of longer names often have this structure — Penny comes from Penelope, Ollie comes from Oliver — but plenty of cute standalone names end with the "EE" sound as well (think Brady, Lucy, and Finley).

There are so many recent celebrity baby names with incredible cute-factor, we wanted to highlight our favorites here.
