Popular Celebrity Baby Names 2008-07-21 05:00:12

Which Name Will Become More Popular?

Celebrities influence us whether we like to admit it or not. Moms buy the hippest strollers or trendiest shoes based on what some of Hollywood's "coolest" moms have purchased and the same goes for names. While some monikers may be too customized to their new owners, others are guaranteed to be copied by the masses.

Out of these baby names, which one do you think will see a spike in popularity based on the next Social Security report?

I am in love with the name Honor. And not because Jessica Alba used it, but because I'm a fan of the actress Honor Blackman. I think it's a very classy name and I'll seriously consider it for a future daughter..

If my husband and ever have another boy he wants to name him Maddux after Greg Maddux the pitcher (I believe he's with the Chicago Cubs now), but I fear that we'll forever have to explain "no we didn't get the name from the Angelina Jolie".

I have a friend who's wife just had a baby 3 weeks ago and they named her Vivienne, before the Pitts. They are not happy. Their fear is that there will be tons of Vivienne's now.

I think Harlow is actually already on the rise, like Max - a lot of these "celebrity driven" names are not so much inspired by a celeb, but a rising name that gets a jump when a famous person chooses it.

"I have to say though, I think choosing a baby name just because your favorite celebrity did is really lame" I totally agree. If any thing, like you, I'm going to stear clear of a name b/c a celeb used it. I really wouldn't want people to think I am some obsessed fanatic. That said. I think Harlow and the JP names will go up in popularity. I don't think Suday will appeal to a broad enough spectrum for it to jump a lot higher. ... I wonder if it is even in the top 1000 names or whatever number it is that the polls usually show.

I have to say though, I think choosing a baby name just because your favorite celebrity did is really lame. I can see hearing one and saying "That's really pretty!" and using it, but people saying "I love Christina Aguilera, I'm naming my son Max!!" Does that really happen? Although we did remove Rocco from our list once Madonna used it. *lol*

I think Vivienne, because this reminds people what a beautiful name it is, especially with the French pronunciation they're using. But Max is going to stay popular either way.

Harlow's a horrible name. People are only choosing it because it is the name of "Best mother on earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Nicole Richie's daughter

Vivienne (in different spellings) will bounce back because it's a Brangelina baby, just like the name Shiloh. Harlow will come up a little more too. Overall the "peasant" mothers will be more creative in general when it comes to names.

I love the name Harlow for a girl and Knox for a boy. They're both super unique, but I think they'll be up and coming.

I agree. Vivienne seems like a name that will become very popular. It is traditional sounding and not too "weird" for many people to use.

Personally I like Sunday better than Vivienne but I think the majority will find Vivienne a better fit. Viv is cute, I think. Sunday is adorable. I like Harlow, though, too, but it is a bit more mysterious. I don't go for serious sounding names so much as light and fun ones.
