9 Celebrity Baby Names We Actually Love
These names have star power without being out of this world.
Sometimes celebrities name their babies Apple or Denim… or even Zolten. But sometimes celebrity parents make a unique choice that turns out to be beautiful. Here, nine of our favorites.
Parents: Daughter of Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman
Why we love it: Diminutive of the latin Francis, meaning “free one”, Frankie is perfect for the offspring of perennial free spirit, Drew Barrymore.
Parents: Daughter of Dave Grohl and wife Jordyn Blum
Why we love it: This babe joins sisters Violet Maye and Harper Willow. Although the Ophelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet meets a bitter end, the Greek meaning of Ophelia’s root “ophelos” means “help”… Saintly, indeed!

Parents: Daughter of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen
Why we love it: This name is straight out of the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty where Princess Aurora is given the name Briar Rose by her fairy godmothers to protect her from the evil Maleficent.
Parents: Daughter of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Why we love it: Baby Luna shares a name with the goddess of the moon, connoting all things romantic, mysterious, and feminine. This seems like a perfect choice for a model mom and a love song crooner dad.
Parents: Son of Poppy Montgomery and husband Shawn Sanford
Why we love it: Giving us a glimpse into the kind of pressure a celebrity feels when she picks a name for her kid, Montgomery wrote the following in a blog post for People Babies: "A name. THE name. The name that my unborn son will carry with him for the rest of his life. What if I mess it up?" We think she picked well!
Parents: Daughter of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Why we love it: Ranking at number 52 on the Social Security Administration’s top 100 girls names of 2016, Hazel isn’t such an obscure name. But there’s something decidedly classic about it, which, for celebrities, somehow makes it even more original.

Parents: Son of Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
Why we love it: The Germanic roots of this name mean “wealth”, but we can’t help but think of the movie Milo and Otis starring a tabby cat and a pug, respectively. Pugs are cute. Babies are cute. What’s not to love?
Parents: Daughter of Liv Tyler and Dave Gardner
Why we love it: Although no longer in the top 1,000, Lula was in the top 100 through the Victorian Ages. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
