It’s difficult enough to name a human — in most cases, they’re stuck with that name forever — but imagine the entire world watching and waiting to judge your choice. (We feel for you, Meghan Markle!) But consider this: Celebrity baby names set trends, become iconic, and have honestly changed the way people name their children. And so, to honor these famous mamas and papas with good taste, we’ve rounded up the best celebrity baby names of 2019 so far.
There is nothing quite like the excitement of a highly-anticipated celebrity baby announcement. Except for the announcement of said baby’s name. (Sometimes, as with Archie Harrison, the anticipation seems worth it. Other times, as with… Psalm… the wait feels somewhat anticlimactic.) Regardless, we have nothing but respect for these parents who definitely got it right this year.
Archie Harrison (Son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry)
While we could never have predicted this one, we love that Meghan and Harry continue to royally shake things up. Their first son, Archie, was born earlier this month, and the world was certainly watching. “It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy,” gushed Meghan. We love that it was an unpredictable choice, while still being fit for a royal.
Birdie Mae (Daughter of Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson)
After a lavish welcome, Baby Birdie arrived to proud parents Jessica and Eric in March, making them a family of five. The sweetest little bird is more than we can handle with her plump cheeks and floral frocks. Birdie somehow manages to be both old-fashioned and ultra-modern, and that’s what makes a classic baby name.
Poet Lake (Daughter to Teresa Palmer and Mark Webber)
This ridiculously stunning actor couple welcomed baby girl Poet Lake to their growing tribe in April. Already inked with her name, daddy Mark shared, “I whispered her a poem as soon as she was born.” So beautiful it could have been written by a poet.
Beatrice Danger (Daughter to Jess Weixler and Hamish Brocklebank)
We think this moniker is the perfect mix of classic and edgy, courtesy of The Good Wife actress Jess and her husband Hamish.
This February, country star Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany welcomed baby girl Navy Rome into the world. We love its worldliness and cadence. Plus, we’re guessing this dad is absolutely crushing the lullaby game.
Beau Bobby Bruce (Son of Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo)
Nev Schulman, host of MTV’s Catfish, and his wife Laura proved their love of alliteration when they introduced their son Beau Bobby Bruce in January. It rolls right off the tongue, don’t you think?
Vaeda Luma (Daughter of Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra)
Teen Mom OG reality stars welcomed baby Vaeda in February and, although the spelling is different, we can’t help but get all of the nostalgic My Girl Vada Sultenfuss vibes.
Benjamin Allen (Son of Andy Cohen)
Named after his grandfather, baby Benjamin not only gets the perk of having superstar host Andy as a father, but he’s also already scored his first People mag cover. Plus, there’s something to be said for keeping it classic and classy.
And those are the best celebrity baby names of 2019 (so far)! We’re nearly halfway through the year, so expect more baby names to love (or not) in the coming months.
