25 Creative Baby Names Celebs Picked Out (That We Love)

We can always count on celebrities to pick out super creative (and sometimes out there, let's be honest) baby names. Whenever we hear that a celebrity is expecting, we're excited to see if they will have a boy or a girl and we definitely can't wait to see how cute the little one looks. But more than that, we want to know what the star has chosen to name their bundle of joy. We know that it's going to be something absolutely fascinating and epic. While some names might be super strange and make us turn our heads in confusion, others are beautiful and stylish names.

For some reason, stars just know what to do when it comes to picking out baby names that we haven't heard before. Maybe it's the fact that they're actors or singers so they're already in artistic professions? Whatever it is, we're always going to be impressed by what they come up with, and it's fun to follow along on their parenting journeys.

Here are 25 creative baby names that celebrities picked out that we love. Maybe some of us are currently expecting some adorable little ones and could use some interesting baby name inspiration. These names might be different but they are definitely cool and creative.

25 Luna


Entertainment Tonight included Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's daughter, Luna, on a list of really great baby names, and we have to say that we really love this one, too.

Luna is a truly gorgeous name, and she's such a cute little girl. Her name fits her perfectly. If we're searching for a creative baby girl name that we don't hear constantly, we might be inspired by this legendary celebrity couple (no pun intended) and go for something like Luna.

24 Lincoln


What To Expect considers Lincoln to be one of the most creative celebrity baby names. Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell's daughter is named Lincoln and it's definitely really cool. Along with five-year-old Lincoln, Dax and Kristen are also parents to three-year-old Delta.

Of course, we could count on one of the greatest couples in Hollywood to pick out the greatest baby names as well. We want to see every single picture of this family that we can and we will never get tired of following along with their family's journey. Dax and Kristen are so sweet together and are such awesome parents.

23 Hazel

OK! Magazine

Julia Robert's daughter is named Hazel, which is another gorgeous name.

We don't see a ton of photos of the Pretty Woman actress and her kids, but when we do, we think that they look like a really lovely family. Julia and her husband, Daniel Moder, have three children: Phinnaeus and Hazel, who are twins and 13 years old, and 11-year-old Henry.

According to People, Julia is keeping the Valentino dress that she wore to the Oscars in 2001 for Hazel. She told the magazine, “It’s under my bed, in a box.“I have this little space in my house that my husband refers to as the heritage collection. Things I go, ‘I can’t get rid of [this], what about Hazel?’”

22 Bowie

When an actress and musician get married and start a family, they're obviously going to come up with a very creative baby name.

Shenae Grimes-Beech and her husband, Josh Beech, just had their first child and named their baby girl Bowie. Her full name is Bowie Scarlett Beech, which is absolutely beautiful. We think that Bowie is such a good name, and we're pretty sure that they were inspired by David Bowie when coming up with baby names. We love it so much.

21 Remington

Fans of Kelly Clarkson know that she's become a mama and that her kids are too sweet.

Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, are parents to a two-year-old boy named Remington and a four-year-old girl named River.

Entertainment Tonight included Remington in a round-up of different baby names that celebrities have picked out. We agree that it's not only creative but also just plain gorgeous. We could say that a baby named Remington is just automatically really, really cute, and we think that everyone would agree with us.

20 Briar Rose

OK! Magazine

Could there be a more magical and prettier baby girl name than Briar Rose?! We're going to say no because we can't imagine what it could be.

According to Today.com, Rachel Bilson was inspired by a fairy tale when choosing this moniker: "Actress Rachel Bilson and partner Hayden Christensen named their daughter after the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, giving her the name Briar Rose when she was born in 2014."

We're big fans of this name. Anyone expecting a baby girl? What do we think of this creative baby name?

19 Kirra Max


When The Hills star Audrina Patridge had her first child, she named her Kirra Max, according to Babycenter.

This is definitely a creative name. We might have heard the name "Kira" before but not with two R's, and sometimes a creative spelling is just spot-on and makes the name so much more appealing. We also love "Max" as a girl name. Some of us might even think that it suits girls more than boys, although it's super cute as a baby boy name as well.

18 Stormi

Via IG

We all know Kylie Jenner's baby girl Stormi by now. We've seen tons of adorable pictures and would look at a million more because she is the sweetest.

How do we feel about the name Stormi? These kinds of names may not be everyone's cup of tea because they are definitely not typical, but many of us would most likely say that we think that it's awesome. After all, it's very creative and it's also really pretty. We know that Kylie Jenner would name her baby girl something really great, and she definitely did.

17 Maple

Via: Yahoo News Canada

According to Today.com, actor Jason Bateman and wife Amanda Anka named their adorable little baby girl Maple Sylvia.

Fans of the actor might not know that they picked out such an amazing, creative name for their daughter, but now we know and we're so glad because it's a beautiful name. Now we're wishing that we had come up with Maple as a baby girl name. What could be better than such a sweet name?! It reminds us of both maple syrup and maple leaves, both of which are the best.

16 Blue Ivy

Vogue Australia

Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter is named Blue Ivy, and she's included in a round-up of creative celebrity baby names on Vogue.com.

It's interesting when we think about because both Blue and Ivy would be pretty creative names. We would be a big fan of anyone naming their kid either one of those. The fact that Beyonce and Jay-Z chose Blue Ivy as a name is cool and also inspiring. It shows us that thinking outside the box when you're naming your little ones is always a great idea and that there's no reason to go for very traditional names (unless that's your thing, that is).

15 True

via:Life & Style

It was super exciting to find out that Khloe Kardashian was expecting her first baby this year... make that three of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters. It was even better to find out that she chose such an amazing and creative name for her little one.

Yup, Khloe went with the name True for her little girl, and we love it. It just sounds good. If we want to get all philosophical, we could say that you always want your kids to be "true" to who they are and also honest, so it totally works.

14 Jagger Snow

Entertainment Tonight

Babycenter put Ashlee Simpson's daughter, Jagger Snow, on a list of creative celebrity baby names, and it had to make this list, too.

Jagger just screams cool and it makes sense that two singers would name their baby girl something so awesome.

Ashlee Simpson is married to Evan Ross (yes, the son of Diana Ross) and they're parents to three-year-old Jagger Snow. Ashlee is also mama to Bronx Wentz who she had with her first husband, Pete Wentz.

If parents want to get really creative with baby girl names, we think that something like Jagger is awesome since it's a name that embodies strength and coolness.

13 Tennesse

Via: People

Tennesse is, of course, a place, but it's also a name. Sometimes that can be a cool way to think of baby names that are creative and not the names that we get so tired of hearing all the time.

We can always look to stars for choosing creative names for their little ones and Reese Witherspoon is in that category, too. According to Vogue, she and her husband, Jim Toth, picked out the name Tennesse for their now six-year-old son. Reese has two other kids: 19-year-old Ava and 15-year-old Deacon, whom she shares with her first husband, Ryan Philippe.

12 Violet


One of our favorite celebrity couples is definitely Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. We really can't say that we adore them enough. We enjoyed watching them in A Quiet Place and can't wait to see where their creative projects take them next. And it's also beautiful to watch their growing family.

Babycenter mentioned that their daughter, Violet, has such a great name, and we totally agree. John and Emily are parents to Violet, who is two years old, and Hazel, who is four.

11 Birdiedie


Busy Phillips's daughter Birdie was included in a Care.com story about names that celebrities have picked out for their babies. We don't think that it gets more creative than Birdie.

Busy and her husband, Marc Silverstein, have two daughters: five-year-old Cricket and ten-year-old Birdie. These names are both cool and creative and they also work really well together. Many of us enjoy following Busy Phillips and seeing her cute kids and what they're up to. They couldn't be a more adorable family unit if they tried.

10 Esmeralda


What To Expect mentioned Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes's daughter, Esmeralda, as an interesting baby name that celebrities chose.

We don't hear this name all the time, or even at all maybe, and we totally think that should change. This is a truly gorgeous name that is really creative as well. It sounds like a princess, and what little girl doesn't want to feel like a princess?! Exactly. Actually, we all want that, so we might be wishing that this was our own name, too.

9 Reign

Hollywood Life

Vogue mentioned Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's son in a story about celebrity baby names that are totally different.

We love the name Reign. He's three years old and has two siblings: big brother Mason, who is eight years old, and Penelope, who is six years old. We love seeing pictures of this family out and about and they are always too stylish. Of course, with a mama like Kourtney Kardashian, we wouldn't expect anything less.

Plus, Kourtney's son is too adorable for words, so we can't forget that, either.

8 Bluebell Madonna

Via: Posh24

Geri Halliwell's daughter is twelve years old, and it might make us feel kind of old to realize that Ginger Spice has a daughter who is that age. It seems like just yesterday that we were in elementary school or junior high and listening to the Spice Girls...

Today.com mentioned Geri's daughter as a celebrity baby name that is different, so we just had to talk about it here. Bluebell is a beautiful name and the fact that Geri added "Madonna" seems to suggest that she's a big fan of the legendary singer.

We love all these cool and creative celebrity baby names, and can't wait to see what names the next few celebrities who start families pick out.

7 Boomer


Did we know that Micheal Phelps named his son Boomer? We might not know this, but now we do, thanks to a round-up of celebrity baby names from Entertainment Tonight.

Michael Phelps and his wife, Nicole Johnson, have two kids: two-year-old son Boomer and nine-month-old son Beckett. These are both great baby names so they chose well.

Boomer sounds like a really cool kid who is strong and always friendly, so that's definitely a great pick for the kid of a famous athlete.

6 Apple

Via: People

Is this the creative celebrity baby name that started them all? Okay, maybe the actress, founder of Goop, and lifestyle figure wasn't the first famous person to name their kid something different. But she is definitely also famous for naming her daughter Apple.

We have to say that we really love this as a girl's name. We might not have named our own daughter this and if we're currently expecting a baby girl it might not be our pick, but we still think that it's really cool and creative.

5 Chicago

E! News

Kim Kardashian West's third baby is named Chicago and we might have been surprised when we first heard that was the name of her third baby, but many of us can probably agree that it's a name that has definitely grown on us. It's really cute when we think about it.

According to Hello magazine, she likes to call her baby girl "Chi" (which sounds like "Shy".) "It kind of messes with me, I'm not going to lie. I really like the one syllable thing," she explained.

We like that, too, and think that Chicago is a beautiful baby name.

4 Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Buddy Bear, and Petal Blossom Rainbow

Hello magazine

Jamie Oliver's kids all have very creative names: Poppy (16), Daisy (15), Petal (9), Buddy (8), and two-year-old River. They're also names that are based on flowers or something from nature.

It's really cool that the celebrity chef and his wife, Juliette Norton, decided to not only pick out creative names for their kids but also keep the same theme going. If parents are looking to have a big family and also want to pick out some creative baby names, this could be a great idea.

3 Elsie Otter

Via: Entertainment Tonight

Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik's daughter is named Elsie Otter. Is this a name that we've ever heard? Probably not. But we're so glad that we know that this is what the New Girl star and her husband named their now three-year-old named their baby girl. They're also parents to one-year-old son Charlie.

Zooey is always described as "quirky" and we can say that Elsie Otter is quite possibly the quirkiest name that we have ever heard. We're loving it for sure.

2 River

Via: Pinterest

What To Expect included River, Keri Russell's son, in a round-up of celebrity baby names.

We know that she's currently in a serious relationship with her costar Matthew Rhys and they have a two-year-old son, Sam. The actress has two kids from her previous marriage to Shane Deary: River, who is eleven years old, and Willa, who is six.

River just sounds like such a cool name. It's the perfect creative baby name since it evokes a feeling of exploration and adventure.

1 Dusty Rose

Via: AceShowbiz.com

Babycenter included Dusty Rose in a list of names that stars chose for their baby girls. Have we heard it before? We might not have but we're so glad that we know about it now.

Adam Levine and his wife, Behati Prinsloo, have two daughters: two-year-old Dusty Rose and nine-month-old Gio Grace.

We would definitely expect a musician to come up with a creative baby name and this one doesn't disappoint at all. Dusty Rose couldn't be a prettier name, and it's giving us lots of baby girl name inspiration for sure.
