Which Celebrity Baby Namer Are You

Celebrity baby names run the gamut from expected traditionals to wild, out-there names that nobody had ever considered. And everything in-between!

Seriously, while it may seem like all the starbabies out there are Raddixes or Montagues, for every little Kulture or Psalm there are many more Olivias and Williams. But trailblazing names and time-honored classics are the very ends of the spectrum.

Just like the rest of us, celebrities have extremely varied taste in baby names. Some stars, including Ryan Lewis and Greta Gerwig, have a hipster sensibility, leading them to choose names like Ramona or Harold for their children. Others, such as Jessica Alba and Kevin Jonas, are modern or romantic namers, instead picking names such as Hayes and Valentina.

There are also the celebrities who are influenced by (or who help start) baby naming trends. These include nature names, place names, and word names. Football star Cam Newton is an expert with word names—he has children named Chosen, Sovereign, and a new baby Cashmere. And Holly Madison is evidently a lover of nature names with her children called Rainbow and Forest

So where do you fall on the celebrity baby name continuum? Everyone has a celebrity baby namer identity, and we created a quiz to help you find yours.
