55 Celebrity Baby Names We Wish We'd Thought of First
Picking a name for a child can be intensely personal — and unfortunately, the name-choice process often invites a lot of unwelcome feedback from other people. Baby name trends come and go, and one of the reasons for that is that celebrities introduce us to some really excellent name ideas on a regular basis. Yes, celebs definitely have a reputation for picking some out-there baby names that people love to make fun of, but every now and then, they just get it so right.
