17 Insanely Awesome Celebrity Baby Names

Ophelia

The daughter of Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl and his wife, Jordyn Blum, their third child, Ophelia Saint, has the name of an angel. One part of an awesome trio, Ophelia is in great company with big sisters named Violet Maye as well as the lovely Harper Willow.

Emerson

Although many celebrity baby names are a bit over the time, Lindsay Price and Curtis Stone opted to name their second baby boy, Emerson Spencer. The former Lipstick Jungle actress as well as her celebrity chef of a man seem to be fond of their sons in more ways than one. They also have a two-year-old boy named Hudson.

3

Asa

A name that is both simple and unique, actor Justin Bartha and his wife, Lia Smith, decided to name their National Treasure, the beautiful moniker, Asa. A different spin on the influx of Avas running around, we can only wonder if this name will catch on the way Ava has in recent years.

4

Finn

The son of actor, Owen Wilson, and his wife and personal trainer, Caroline Lindqvist, the name Finn means, “small blond soldier” in Gaelic. Joining his older brother, Robert, which means “famed, bright, and shining,” the name Finn sounds like he could be anything from a pro surfer to fierce Marine warrior.

5

Hazel

An oldie, but goodie, the daughter of actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s daughter, Hazel’s oddly perfect name was recently made popular again via the book and movie entitled, The Fault in Our Stars. Moreover, the name began to skyrocket in popularity when Julia Roberts gave the name to her daughter and has been steadily increasing in prominence since 2014.

6

Free

A name whose awesomeness almost defies explanation, the son of actors Barbara Hershey and David Carradine, Free is a name that makes the spirit smile. Moreover, a name that can be seen as unisex, this is a forward thinking name that will likely become a more popular moniker for both males and females in light of recent events.

7

Gus

A name almost cooler than his instant celebrity status, Gus Monroe is the child of Poppy Montgomery and her husband, Shawn Stanford. Montgomery seemed to have some misgivings about being tasked with such a major responsibility as giving someone their name. Nevertheless, with a name like hers, it should be clear that unconventional names lead to an awesome life.

8

Konrad

The third child of Scandal star, Scott Foley, and his wife, Marika Domincyk, there is nothing provocative about the name Konrad, besides maybe the use of a “K” instead of a “C”. The little brother of big sister, Malina, and brother, Keller, this family clearly knows how to pick ’em as has some fun while doing it.

9

Hunter

The son of Lost star, Josh Holloway, and his wife, Yessica Kumala, Hunter is the second child of the couple and the brother of his equally cool sister, Java. Although this name peaked in the early 2000’s, it is still ranked amongst the top 50 most popular names for boys.

10

River

The son of NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah and her husband, David Olsen, opted to name their bundle of joy the earthy, River. Although this name is clearly unique, it was made popular in recent years by actor, River Phoenix.

11

River (Part 2)

Another parent going with the flow, the daughter of Kelly Clarkson and hubby, Brandon Blackstock, goes by the lovely, River Rose. Whether she will have the same smooth vocals as her mother remains to be seen. Nevertheless, here’s hoping the river doesn’t fall far from the ocean.

12

Josie

Daughter of actor Scott Caan and wife, Kacy Byxbee, Josie was popular in the 1880’s and is once again gaining popularity in the present day. A strong yet fun name for a girl, young Josie sounds like the type of name you’d here peppered into a band or gracing an up and coming Olympic gymnast. Endless possibilities.

13

June

Yet another throwback of a name, Marshall Allman and his wife, Jamie Anne, named their daughter after their due date. Ironically born a bit prematurely in May, June joins her twin brother, Asher James and Oliver Charles, rounding off this offspring trio.

14

Charlton

Son of pop singer, Robbie Williams, and his wife, Ayda Field, named their second born, the cool, Charlton. The younger sibling of his sister, Theodora “Teddy” Rose Williams, young Charlton is clearly in great company.

15

Mia

The daughter of Zara Philips and Mike Tindall, these royals just had to pick one of the most popular names in Australia for their tiny heiress.

16

Briar Rose

Daughter of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen, these actors took the name of their daughter straight from the Disney film, Sleeping Beauty. A name that includes its own magical layer of protection, in the film, Princess Aurora is given the name Briar Rose to hide her from the curse placed on her by Maleficent.

17

Frankie

Although at first thought, the name Frankie may not strike you as the epitome of awesome celebrity baby names, once you find out this is the name of the daughter of Drew Barrymore and her husband, Will Copeland, the spunky, Frankie, has more of a ring to it. Not only is this a sign of a more gender-neutral time, but a name like Frankie is clearly chock full of girly charm, masculine power and vice versa.
