This month of celebrity pregnancy announcements was quite eclectic. We have some celebrities who go all out with their baby name choices–yes Geri Halliwell, I’m talking about you. Others lead more private lives, and choose less outrageous names to match. Neither way is better than the other–great names come out of each (Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch is an A+ name). Although I have to admit, it’s pretty fun to predict the name of Bluebell Madonna’s future sibling.
Christina and David Arquette
Siblings: Coco (previous marriage), Charlie West
It’s another boy for David Arquette and his wife Christina. They chose the friendly, likeable name Charlie West for thier first son, so I expect something along the same lines for his brother.
Boy: Alex, August, Eli, Henry, Jack, Liam, Milo, Oliver, Owen, Parker, Theo
*Update* Very close–Augustus Alexis!
Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner
Siblings: Bluebell Madonna (previous marriage)
Bluebell Madonna frequents the lists of Craziest Celebrity Baby Names. Will Geri Halliwell choose another wild name for baby number two? I hope so!
Girl: Blossom, Coco, Juniper, Moxie, Poppy, Romy, Tigerlily, Trixie, Velvet
Boy: Caspian, Huckleberry, Loyal, Peregrine, Phoenix, River, Valentine, Zeppelin
*Update–Bluebell’s brother is Montague George Hector!
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
Siblings: Jack (previous marriage), Liam, Stella, Hattie, Finn
The McDermotts are often considered to have the best sibset in Hollywood. Stylistically the names work really well together, and they’re all perfectly on trend. Whatever they choose for baby number five, I know it’s going to be great.
Girl: Dolly, Elsie, Evie, Georgia, Ivy, Lucy, Minnie, Nellie, Ruthie, Tilly, Violet
Boy: Charlie, Dashiell, Everett, Felix, Gus, Jude, Milo, Otto, Rudy, Toby, Wyatt
*Update* It’s a boy! Beau Dean McDermott
Rochelle and A.J. McLean
Siblings: Ava Jaymes
Ava Jaymes is a sweet and sassy name that’s full of spunk. I expect the McLeans to use a similar formula to name their second daughter as they did with Ava–a well-liked first name with a spunky middle.
Girl: Chloe, Grace, Hazel, Leah, Lila, Kira, Maddie, Mia, Olivia, Ruby, Sofia
*Update* Welcome Lyric Dean!
Lea Seydoux and Andre Meyer
Lea Seydoux is having her first child, and I can’t wait to hear what she names him or her. Lea is a French actress, so I have a feeling she’ll choose a name that shares her European roots.
Girl: Amelie, Beatrice, Camille, Elinor, Emmeline, Madeleine, Silvie, Veronique
Boy: Adrien, Auguste, Charles, Henri, Julien, Luc, Quincy, Remy, Romain
*Update* A baby boy–George!
Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch
Siblings: Christopher Carlton
Christopher Carlton is the appropriately British, classic name Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch chose for their first child. I suspect his sibling will get an equally sophisticated and stylish name–maybe one of the ones below.
Girl: Abigail, Amelia, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Emma, Olivia, Philippa, Samantha, Victoria
Boy: Andrew, Jonathan, Matthew, Nicholas, Samuel, Sebastian, Timothy, William, Zachary
*Update* Another boy–Hal Auden!
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
It’s a girl for Amber Tamblyn and David Cross! They could go in any direction with her name, but I’m guessing we’ll see something sweet, cute, and upbeat from this comedy couple.
Girl: Elsie, Frankie, Georgia, Gracie, Lola, Lulu, Phoebe, Poppy, Ruby, Stella, Susanna
*Update* Hello, Marlowe Alice!
Ciara and Russell Wilson
Siblings: Future Zahir (previous relationship)
Ciara’s oldest son Future is named after his father. I wonder if this means a possible son will be called Russell, like his dad. For a daughter, I doubt Ciara is on the list, but maybe a fun musical or word name to match the boldness of Future.
Girl: Aurora, Bliss, Cadence, Eden, Emerald, Love, Sable, Sienna, Story, Xara
Boy: Ace, Austin, Carlton, Cassius, Chance, Justice, Maverick, Reign, Russell
*Update* I was right–baby girl is Sienna Princess!
