The 14 Best Celeb Baby Names of 2018
When historians write about 2018, they’ll surely mention the influx of secret celebrity weddings and surprise baby arrivals. Another thing worth throwing in the ol’ record book? All the winning celeb baby names the year brought. From Gabrielle Union’s Kaavia to Cardi B’s Kulture, here are the 14 best celebrity baby names of 2018.
Banks Violet Bair
Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma welcomed their first child together on October 25, and gave her a name fit for a future cool girl.
Kaavia James Union Wade
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s blended family grew by one with the arrival of their first child, Kaavia James, via surrogate on November 7. Kaavia is a Sanskrit word for “work of art” and the “James” portion is a tribute to Union’s uncle.
Ennis Howard Plemons
Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons landed on a super strong name for their son. Ennis translates to “the only choice” and Howard means “defender.” Basically, he’s a future Viking.
Leafar Von D Seyer
Kat Von D and Leafar Seyer’s little boy and his mashup name arrived this December. The matching father-son names might get confusing down the road—just saying.
Genevieve Upton Verlander
Kate Upton and Justin Verlander kept it classic when naming their firstborn, who (like Kaavia James) made her grand entrance on November 7.
After all the hardship Michael Bublé, Luisana Lopilato and their family has faced, naming their first daughter Vida (or life in Spanish) feels like a profound choice.
As Chip and Joanna Gaines’s fifth child, it seemed only right that they name their youngest Crew (get it?).
Santiago Enrique Bastón
Eva Longoria and José Bastón held tight to their roots when naming their little Santi, and we’re all about it.
Prince Louis Arthur Charles
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s youngest son needed a name fit for a prince, and by George Charles he got one.
