  • Violet 1 of 15
    Violet
    When Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced the name of their first daughter, it sparked Willy Wonka reenactments everywhere — “Violet, you’re turning violet!” Blueberry-bloating and bratty kids aside, we like Ben and Jen’s choice of a throwback to this classic, floral name.
    Violet is also a famous name from the Titanic
  • Lily-Rose 2 of 15
    Lily-Rose
    Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis wanted double the flower power for their little girl, so they called upon the power of the hyphen to get the job done.

  • Poppy 3 of 15
    Poppy
    Jamie Oliver, also known as the Naked Chef, named one of his daughters Poppy Honey, which is actually quite a sweet name (literally and figuratively) when compared to their second daughter’s name, Daisy Boo — yet another kid doomed to hide her middle name from her classmates …

  • Iris 4 of 15
    Iris
    Jude Law and ex-wife, Sadie Frost, got colorful when naming their daughter after this vibrant purple flower, which also happens to be Greek for “rainbow.”
    Iris is also the name of a famous philosopher
  • Sunday Rose 5 of 15
    Sunday Rose
    Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman’s daughter’s full name, Sunday Rose, kind of sounds like a country song. Did Keith name his daughter with a future hit in mind? We smell a croon-y, father-daughter ballad in the making ... get your tissues ready.

  • Bluebell 6 of 15
    Bluebell
    Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell named her daughter Bluebell Madonna after the tiny springtime flowers she loved so much. She told Hello! magazine, “This is an emotional, spiritual, physical adventure that's going to last a lifetime."
    How much damage do unusual names do?
  • Willow 7 of 15
    Willow
    The best thing about Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s eldest daughter’s name? It makes for a great pun every time the baby cries: “Look — it’s a weeping willow!” Sure, you may not find that funny now, but just wait ‘til you’re in the sleep-deprived trenches of new parenthood.
    Can a baby's name bring a family closer?
  • Daisy 8 of 15
    Daisy
    We love this youthful, sunny name that Meg Ryan chose when her daughter was born, but the full name, Daisy True Ryan, is a little bit more questionable.
    At least it’s better than Daisy False Ryan …
    Daisy is also on our list of top MTV VJ names
  • Suri 9 of 15
    Suri
    In order to fall in line with the hippest of the hip celebrity baby-naming parents, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise spiced up the commonly used “Rose” by taking its Persian translation.
    Voila! Suri Cruise was born.

  • Birdie 10 of 15
    Birdie
    Actress Busy Philipps of Cougar Town admitted on The Bonnie Hunt Show that she named her daughter Birdie after Lady Bird Johnson — and because she wanted her to have a unique name. We just hope Birdie doesn’t suffer an onslaught of "A little birdie told me!" jokes.

    Jasmine
    In 2008, Nigel Barker, handsome photographer from America’s Next Top Model, welcomed new daughter, Jasmine — what girl wouldn’t want to be named after a
    beautiful white flower and a Disney princess?

  • Mae 12 of 15
    Mae
    After Jen Scheft was rejected by Andrew Firestone on 2003's season of The Bachelor and her own shot at being the Bachelorette failed to bring about a long-lasting romance, she finally had some luck in love when she met her husband, Joe Waterman, on a blind date in 2008. Although their first daughter was born in the fall, they named her Mae Elizabeth — a simple spelling twist on a beautiful spring name.

  • Zola 15 of 15
    Zola
    Eddie Murphy’s little girl’s name, Zola, means “lump of earth.” It may not be the prettiest name meaning on the block, but hey, without the dirt we’d have no flowers.
    We also love her middle name, Ivy.
