Shared celebrity baby names of 2013

Typically, celebrities aim to find as unique a baby name as possible, but these celebrities shared their picks with one another.

  • Charlotte: Both Colin Hanks and Rachael Leigh Cook chose an unusual middle name — Bryant and Easton, respectively — for their baby girls.
  • Elijah: This baby boy name was chosen by both Elton John and Glee's Heather Morris.
  • George: Will and Kate named their future king George, pop star Zac Hanson's third child is George and country singer Chely Wright calls her twins George and Everett.
  • Jett: Journalist Lisa Ling gave this name to her daughter, and British media personality Katie Price gave it to her son.
  • Knox: The Mentalist star Amanda Righetti and singer Dierks Bentley both chose this name, which soared to popularity after being used by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for their now-5-year-old son.
  • Lincoln: Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard named their son Lincoln, and so did Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry.

Celebrity baby boys of 2013

Some of these masculine names are terrific, and some are just plain odd.

  • Antonio Andres: Actress Paula Garces named her first child Skye Mahoney, so we were pleasantly surprised when she gave her second-born child this more traditional name.
  • Asher James & Oliver Charles: Actress Jamie Anne Allman is "Mom" to these twin boys.
  • Axl Jack: With this name, Fergie and Josh Duhamel's son is more destined to be a rock star than an accountant.
  • Carter Seven: Seven is a popular middle name for athlete dads — Carter Seven's dad is hockey player Brent Seabrook and, in 2011, Harper Seven was born to soccer pro David Beckham.
  • Daxel Vaughn: Add a few letters to the name Fergie and Josh Dhamel chose, and you have the name of Lisa D'Amato's new baby boy.
  • Ellis James & Elizabeth Mae: Television host Samantha Brown picked this adorable set of names for her twin babies.
  • Felix Chang: After Hugh Grant and his baby mama Tinglan Hong named their first child, a girl, Xiao Xi, this baby boy's name feels like a mismatch.
  • Klay Anthony: Wayne Rooney's little boy will spend most of his life informing people that his name begins with a K, not a C.
  • Logan Vincent: Tamar Braxton chose a masculine name for her little man.
  • Louis Augustus: This fine name was selected by Roswell co-stars Majandra Delfino and David Walton.
  • Phaedra Bloom Forever: It's a name one might expect from Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof, who named her first son Astala Dylan Willow.
  • Quinnlann Clancy: The double Ns make Maggie Rizer's son's name feel a bit feminine, don't you think?
  • Rekker Radley: This little fellow joined big sister Everleigh Rae at the Cam Gigandet household last January.
  • Shooter Sanhed Julian, Jr.: Wonder if Julian Schnabel was kicking back a few shots himself when he concocted this name?
  • Valentin Francesco: Ali Landry chose a name that will pair beautifully with siblings Estela Ines and Marcelo Alejandro and the family surname, Monteverde.
  • Vernon Lindsay: Vince Vaughn chose a family name — his father is also Vernon Lindsay Vaughn.
  • Xano William Varela: Jason Gann decided to go with the X trend that's currently all the rage.

Celebrity baby girls of 2013

Most of these celebrity baby girl names are surprisingly feminine and traditional, but a few celeb parents came through with expected goofiness.

  • Carmen Gabriela: Alec and Hilaria Baldwin selected an ultra-feminine name for their first baby together.
  • Cricket Pearl: Busy Philipps is starting her own menagerie…  she named her first daughter Birdie Leigh.
