Celebrity baby names are a favorite for many, as you never know what you’ll hear when a star has a little one. Celebrity names for boys are some of our favorites, with the bar set high by many, like David and Victoria Beckham, whose fashionable choices, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz have since caught on with the rest of us. Let’s dig into more and see what all the fuss is about, shall we?

Word choices make up many celebrity names for boys, giving them an edgier air than most. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have sons Saint and Psalm, while Alanis Morissette shares sons Ever and Winter with hip hop artist Souleye. Story is another gem here, chosen by Minnie Driver for her baby boy and by Jenna Elfman for her son. Word names are growing in popularity among us common folk, too, so don’t be intimidated by them. Look toward the top of the baby name charts, and you’ll see several, including Maverick, Mason, and Hunter.

Natural names are also beloved in the celebrity baby names landscape. Several celebs, including Kate Winslet, have a Bear. Boyish and bold, we adore the moniker. Many others have used River, too, a name that’s become quite the unisex moniker in recent years. Rapper Iggy Azalea has an Onyx, while Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have a son named Sparrow. Like word names, at a glance, they’re out there, but once you study the charts, you’ll realize they’re totally usable.

Of course, the classics are used by famous faces, too. Among celebrity names for boys, you’ll find timeless monikers like John, James, and Matthew. The one-syllable cuties Jack and Luke are also quite common. Sure, some celebrity baby names are eye-catching, like Lazer and Ice, but that doesn’t make the classics shine any less. We think there’s room for all of them.

Check out the rest of our collection of celebrity names for boys and see what awesome Hollywood picks catch your eye.
