The sometimes stressful, rarely relaxing, and always interesting process of selecting a baby name is practically a rite of passage for every parent-to-be. And if you thought the hard part would be over just because you finally picked one out, you'd be wrong. Long after your kid is out of diapers, people will still ask you about the story behind your child's name. They'll be extra inquisitive if you've selected a particularly unique moniker for your munchkin, too. Don't worry, though. This happens to all parents—even famous ones. Heaps of people have questioned how celebrities chose their baby names, too.
It can be truly comforting to realize that the stars can be "just like us" when it comes to parenthood. From paying tribute to one's heritage and honoring loved ones to heart-warming stores that give you all the feels, there are so many reasons why celeb (and non-celeb) parents have chosen a significant and meaningful name for their little one.
At first glance, it can be easy to simply roll your eyes or laugh it off as Hollywood eccentricity, but sometimes even the non-traditional name choices for celeb kids can have a sincere or inspirational story behind them. So check out how some of these celebrities selected their baby names.
