This month’s set of celebrity naming styles is very eclectic. There’s Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh, who loves honor names; Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who famously made Wyatt a unisex name; and Mira Pak and Terrence Howard, who create their own names. We’ll have to wait and see if they follow the same technique or take a wildly different approach. For now, these are my predictions for the names of eight upcoming celebrity babies.
Savannah Guthrie‘s baby’s name was big news the first time around–and not just because she’s an NBC anchor. She gave her daughter Vale an interesting and unique name that was very stylish. For baby number two, I bet she’ll choose something as equally short and snazzy.
*Update* A little boy! Charles Max, called Charley.
Where do you go after a girl named Wyatt? These gender-bending celebrities are throwing me for a loop. The choices below could probably work for either gender Kutcher baby–Wyatt is just as likely to have a brother or a sister named Sawyer, Walker, or Logan.
*Update* Hello, Dimitri Portwood!
Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley love family names. All of their daughters’ names are of significance, so I’m certain that their little boy will have a meaningful name as well. Naleigh and Adalaide‘s names heavily honor Katherine‘s side, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Josh‘s family had the most influence on this baby’s name.
*Update* Joshua Bishop—another honor-filled name!
It’s a boy for this NBC News couple–Dylan Dreyer is the meteorologist on the Today Show, and her husband Brian Fichera is a cameraman. I wonder if their professions will play a role in his name—something weather-inspired, perhaps?
*Update* Welcome, Calvin Bradley!
Australian actress Teresa Palmer is going to have a houseful of boys! The couple seems to like pairing mainstream names with bold middles. That being said, I think this little boy might have a tranquil, zen name like his brother Bodhi.
*Update* Baby boy is Forest!
Qirin, pronounced like Kieran, is a name that Mira Pak and Terrence Howard created. They were inspired by the Qilin–a Chinese mythical creature. If they go that route again, I’ve got my bases covered. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the went a completely new, yet just as creative route.
*Update* It’s a boy—welcome Hero!
It’s a third girl for the Bryants! I’m excited to hear how they round out their already fantastic sibset. My guess is they’ll go for another feminine, classy choice.
*Update* Bianka Bella—perfect for this sibset!
