Baby Names of the Rich and/or Famous
Like it or
not, celebrities are a major force behind name popularity. For
example, before Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt named kids Knox and
Maddox, who had heard of those names? In 2016, Maddox was #134
and Knox was #250 (plus spawned a long-form: Knoxton). The year
before Maddox was born, the name was at #750. Knox was at #818.
Other names that have seen rises in popularity likely due to
famous parents are: Cruz, Bear, Everly, and Saint.
Here are the names of some celebrities' (included are musicians, actors, writers, historical figures, various types of athletes, scientists etc.) children, young and old. Some "celebrity babies" are old enough to have their own children and grandchildren these days-- follow the generational naming trends!
