The 8 Best Celebrity Baby Names Of 2016

Share

Perhaps it’s because celebrities are used to — if not drawn to — the spotlight that they seem to have a particular fondness for finding names for their offspring that stand apart from the pack. Some dip into the past for an old-fashioned moniker while others honor a family member or have some personal significance to the parents. And then there are those that simply can’t be explained with any rationale besides just sounding pretty damn cool. When you’re a celebrity baby, it’s all fair game. 2016 was no exception to the unique naming trend, and we’ve gathered a few of our favorites, including one that references his parents’ love of whiskey, and one pulled straight from heaven.
