Celebrity baby names

Celebrity baby names in alphabetical order.


Celebrities are a rare breed. With a demand to hit the headlines on a regular basis, they strive to maintain just the right level of crazy to keep us all interested.

This element of spontaneity extends from our screens into their home and, of course to their children. How many times has your friend exclaimed, ‘have you heard what they’ve called their baby!?’

Our favourite celebrity stars appear to have normal enough names – Victoria Beckham, Lauren Laverne, Jamie Oliver – but they seem to be collectively creating a new generation where inspiration for names comes from no further than your kitchen cupboard – Sage, Apple, Thyme.
