Superlatives For 2015 Celeb Baby Names (Sorry Kimye, "Saint West" Isn't Most Unique)
2015 won't just be remembered as the year Kanye West and Kim Kardashian named their son Saint West. Even though Kimye might not want to admit it, there are a lot of celebrities who selected some interesting and worthy names for their children this past year. So, what better way to recognize many of those monikers than by handing out superlatives for 2015 celeb baby names? Let's face it, they definitely deserve an award.
It's no secret that many celebs select unique (to say the least) names for their kiddos. As exciting as it is when a famous person is going to have a child, you know you can't wait until the baby is born just to hear the name. Heck, before Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed Princess Charlotte into the world, there were baby name pools and bookies getting in on the action of Royal Baby No. 2. There's no arguing people go to the extremes when it comes to answering the question, "What name will they pick?"
That said, let's go back to our high school days and select superlatives for each baby name. Now, I know Kimye might think their son holds the title for "Most Unique," but he doesn't. Who does? Keep reading to find out.
Most Likely To Make You Cry
Vin Diesel named his daughter Pauline, which is a touching way to pay tribute to his late co-star and friend Paul Walker.
Most Likely To Become A Book Character
If you love To Kill a Mockingbird, then you'll love this name. Jennifer Love Hewitt named her son Atticus James.
Most Sought After By The Media
Remember all the ups and downs with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' daughter's name? Her name is James, but for some time many thought it was Violet. Also, you'll be hard pressed to find a photo of her.
Most Likely To Make You Go, "Huh?"
This isn't the most common name, but apparently Zooey Deschanel and her husband Jacob Pechenik loved it. Their daughter is named Elsie Otter. Yep.
Most Likely To Make You Cold
Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross welcomed their daughter in July, but gave her more a winter name: Jagger Snow. Brr.
Most Downton Abbey-Like
This was the name the entire world was waiting to hear. Prince William and Kate Middleton named their daughter Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, which is both fitting and something that might be heard on Downton Abbey.
Most Likely To Make Alliteration Cool
If anyone can make you love grammar and alliteration, it's Benedict Cumberbatch. He and his wife Sophie Hunter had a son, who they reportedly named Christopher Carlton. Here's hoping it's true, because that name is so Benedict.
Most Likely To Make Gossip Girl Talk
Reportedly, because Leighton Meester and Adam Brody like to remain super private, they welcomed a baby girl named Arlo Day. Seeing as they're very secretive about their lives, Gossip Girl would have a field day.
Most Likely To Make You Watch The Da Vinci Code
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel named their son Silas Randall. Every time I hear the name Silas, all I can think of is The Da Vinci Code. Anyone else?
That's right Kimye, I'm giving Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco Perego's twin boys the superlative of "Most Unique." Their boys are named Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio. Does it get more unique than that?
Can't wait to see what 2016 will bring!
