Celebrity baby name trends

Celebrities this year had an affinity for K boy names, such as Kannon, Koa, Kellen, Knox and Kase. Could the Kardashians have anything to do with the resurgence of K names?

In the past, celebrities trended towards more unique names. However, this year saw a spike in traditional names. Kate Hudson named her son Bingham (after a family member), Owen Wilson chose Robert and Brandon Flowers picked the classic name Henry. Could this mean weird and wacky celebrity names (ahem, Bronx Mowgli) are on the decline?

Edgy names were a hit in 2011, with boy names such as Journey, Finn, Cree and Diesel given to this year's celebu-tots.

Exotic names are a great way to pay respect to your family traditions, with celebrity names like Marcel and Matteo. Antonio Sabata Jr.'s 22-letter middle name (Anthonia Kamakanaalohamailkalani Harvey) is Hawaiian for "a beloved gift from the heavens."
