11 Beautiful Meanings Behind The Most Interesting Celebrity Baby Names


If you're in the market for a unique baby name, Hollywood may be your new go-to source for inspiration. Celebrities aren't afraid to push the status quo or try new things, and the names the choose for their babies prove it. Granted, there are some super strange celebrity baby names out there (I'm not entirely sure what Jamie Oliver was thinking with Petal Blossom Rainbow.) But despite the more unique monikers, there are some seriously beautiful meanings behind the most interesting celebrity baby names, if you're looking for a name that doesn't just sound pretty, but has a pretty meaning.

The meaning behind a baby's name is important to many parents. It can give your child a boost of confidence later in life, help them remember an important value, or simply inspire them. And although many people may be hesitant give their child the same name as a A-lister's baby, there is something to be said about the thought that celebrities put into their children's names.

Whether you're looking for a multi-cultural name, one with a long history, or the perfect gender neutral choice, looking to the "stars" might just give you the needed boost of inspiration you've been looking for.
