Best Celebrity Baby Names of 2013

There’s a Hollywood baby boom—which can only mean a whole new crop of inspiring, interesting, and downright insane baby names! Here are our faves for 2013

Shepherd 1 of 68
Congratulations to Supernatural star Jared Padalecki and his wife Genevieve Cortese Padalecki on the birth of their second son, Shepherd. The baby boy joins brother, Thomas Colton, born in 2012.
Sadie 2 of 68
Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams plays a doctor on TV—and now he plays dad in real life! Williams and his wife Aryn Drake-Lee welcomed their first child together in early December, a daughter named Sadie. We hope she got her dad's famous eyes!
River 3 of 68
Congratulations to NCIS: Los Angeles star Daniela Ruah and her fiance David Olsen on the birth of their first child, a boy named River Isaac. The Portuguese American actress met her fiance, a former NAVY SEAL, on the set of the hit CBS show—he's the stunt double and older brother of Ruah's co-star Eric Christian Olsen, who also became first-time dad in 2013!
Dahlia 4 of 68
We can only imagine how delicious Gail Simmons' baby food will be! The Top Chef judge and her husband Jeremy Abrams have welcomed their first child, a daughter named Dahlia Rae. The couple waited until the birth to find out the sex of the baby, so it was a New Year's surprise!
Brooklyn 5 of 68
Just in time for the New Year! Football great Tiki Barber and his wife Traci welcomed their first child together on Dec. 27, a baby girl named Brooklyn. While the name was super trendy in 2013, the former running back might be paying homage to his career with the New York Giants. Brooklyn joins brothers Atiim Kiambu Junior "AJ", born 2002, Chason, born 2004, and twin sisters, born 2010, children from Barber's previous marriage.
Kaius 6 of 68
Celebrity stylist/designer Rachel Zoe has an eye for trends...even when it comes to baby names! Zoe, 42, and her husband Rodger Berman welcomed their second son, a boy names Kaius Jagger. Kaius is definitely unusual, but Jagger is already a celeb favorite. The baby boy joins brother Skyler Morrison, born in 2011. The boys share music-inspired middle names—maybe Zoe is hoping for the next Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison!
Bear 7 of 68
At least his last name won't be Rocknroll! Oscar-winner (and veteran mom!) Kate Winslet welcomed her third child—the first with new husband Ned Rocknroll—on Dec. 7. The baby, a son, had been given the snuggley, yet fierce name Bear. Bear joins siblings Mia, born in 2000, and Joe, born in 2003.
Ayva 8 of 68
Talk about a proud papa! British R&B singer Jay Sean has been gushing about the new lady in his life, daughter Ayva Loveen Kaur, since he and wife Thara Natalie welcomed her on Dec. 16. Sean (born Kamaljeet Singh Jhooti) and Natalie must have been inspired by their shared Indian heritage when naming their daughter: Loveen is a Sikh name meaning "absorbed in adoration" and Kaur means "princess!"
Berkeley 9 of 68
Congratulations to The Mentalist star Rockmond Dunbar and his wife, actress Maya Dunbar, on the birth of their first child. The baby, a girl, has been named Berkeley Seon.

Saffron 12 of 68
No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal might be a secret foodie! The multi-talented musician/producer and his wife Erin Lokitz have welcomed their second child together, daughter Saffron Rose Kiran. The unusual moniker coordinates with big sister Coco, born 2011, as a food-inspired name.

Autumn may be coming to a close, but life with a new Autumn has just begun for one celeb couple! On Nov. 26, actress Jennifer Love Hewitt and her new secretly-wed husband and costar Brian Hallisay welcomed their first baby girl, Autumn James Hallisay. We love that they adapted the traditionally male but timeless James as the middle name for this fall baby!
Kaia and Kane 14 of 68
They really are the "Biermann Bunch!" Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciak and her husband, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, welcomed fraternal twins on Nov. 25. The latest additions to their brood makes Zolciak the mother of six, with four of the kids under the age of 2 1/2! The babies are named Kaia Rose, a girl, and Kane Ren, a boy. Kaia received her middle name from Zolciak's pyschic and friend and Kane received his middle name from the twins' OB-GYN.

Louis 18 of 68
Naming your child after French kings and Roman emperors definitely puts the pressure on! Actor David Walton and his wife, former Roswell actress Majandra Delfino, welcomed their second child, a boy named Louis Augustus.

2013 has yielded a second championship and a second baby for Miami Heat player Chris Bosh!
