Top secret celebrity baby names

Many celebrities are choosing to not make a big baby announcement, instead keeping their baby name a secret. From Anna Paquin’s twin baby names to Penelope Cruz’s new baby boy (and many more!), we did some digging and found out top secret celebrity baby names.

Top secret celebrity baby namesLil Wayne

Secret baby names: Cameron Carter, Dwayne Carter III, Neal Carter, Reginae Carter

Lil Wayne probably never intended to keep the names of his four children secret, however most people aren’t aware that he is a father of four!

His oldest child, a daughter named Reginae, was born when he was only 15 years old to his high school sweetheart. They later married and divorced in 2006. His second child Dwayne III, was born in 2008, however Wikipedia does not have the mother of this child listed. His fourth child, Cameron, was born in September 2009 to actress Lauren London and his fourth child, Neal, was born in November 2009 to singer Nivea.

In case you are keeping track, 2009 was a busy year for him.


Secret baby name: Rocket Man

Not only did we not know that The Neptunes' founder/singer/record producer Pharrell has a secret baby name — but we didn’t even know he had a baby! Pharrell, who appears along with Robin Thicke in the hit song “Blurred Lines” has a 4-year-old son with the unique name Rocket Man Williams with his wife, model Helen Lasichanh.

In fact, Pharrell wrote the song “Rocket’s Theme” for the movie Despicable Me for his son!

Secret baby names: Olive Baron and Elula Lottie Miriam

Actress Isla Fisher and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen kept the names of their daughters under lock and key.

The name of 3-year-old daughter, Olive, was finally revealed, but not even Kelly Ripa could get Fisher to reveal Elula’s name! She finally revealed Elula’s full name to Us Weekly when she was 6-months-old.

Why the secrecy?

"Motherhood is my favorite topic, but I never talk about it publicly," Fisher has said. "As much as I love what I am doing, and I am so fortunate to have the opportunities that I have had, my responsibility is to my family."

Uma Thurman

Secret baby name: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson

Uma Thurman welcomed a baby girl last July with her boyfriend, Arpad Busson, but waited four months before sharing her daughter's name.

After her rep revealed the name, we knew why it took that long, as the baby girl was given five names!

"Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as Luna," her rep said in a statement.

Thurman and her ex-husband, Ethan Hawke, have two children together with the short names of Maya and Levon.

Thurman explained her "crazy" baby name choice to Jimmy Fallon. "Maya came up with the best excuse, [which] was that I probably wouldn’t get to have any more children, so I just put every name that I liked into [the baby's]," she said.
