6 Celebrity-Inspired Baby Names That Are On The Rise

Celebrity inspired baby names on the riseI love unique names and prefer ones that are outside of any ‘top 100’ list if I can avoid it.

Celebrities are often donned with their own unique name and it seems once they hit the scene with a bang, their name will quickly become fast-rising in the baby name charts.

Huffington Post shared 12 celebrities who are inspiring a new wave of popular names. Gone are the past name inspirations like Angelina and Miles and we’re now seeing even more unique names that will likely soon become not so unique — thanks to the stars that have become popular themselves.
