Celebrity baby names (Part I.)

Looking for inspiration when it comes to naming your baby? Here’s your guide to some of the most intriguing celebrity baby names from across the alphabet.

Apple

BuzzFoto Celebrity Sightings In New York - April 22, 2010

Who knew that fruit could be a proper baby name? It was picked by (the now “consciously uncoupled”) Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin for their daughter. (Though we prefer Clementine, as far as produce names go!)

Blue

Colors have long been part of the baby-naming universe (think Scarlett and Kelly), but Beyonce and Jay-Z paired true Blue with a botanical middle name, Ivy, for their little girl.

Cyrus

Actors Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy helped launch the trend toward two-syllable, “s”-ending names by picking this old-school moniker for their son, Cyrus Michael Christopher.

Delta

After giving big sister Lincoln the presidential treatment, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard went with this Southern belle classic (paired with Mama’s surname Bell in the middle).

Esmeralda

"The Place Beyond The Pines" Premiere - 2012 Toronto International Film Festival

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes gave their daughter this melodious gem, and paired it with the middle name Amada.

Frankie

Drew Barrymore skipped the formal Francesca in favor of the fun nickname Frankie for her daughter.

Gideon

"The Smurfs 2" - Los Angeles Premiere - Blue Carpet

This Biblical classic was the perfect choice for the son of Neil Patrick Harris and Dave Burtka.

Hazel

When Julia Roberts picked it for her daughter, it was labeled as a fusty, old-fashioned choice—but now that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have given it to their daughter, it’s considered fresh and modern. (The fact that it’s the name of the heroine in The Fault in Our Stars doesn’t hurt, either.)

India

Audi Polo Challenge - Day 2

This exotic place name pick is super fashionable in England, but could Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky help make it a hit here? (We love it paired with their choice of middle name, Rose.)

Jagger

You can thank Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger for making his surname a fashionable first name choice. Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross paired it with the middle name Snow for their daughter, and Soleil Moon Frye picked it for her son.
