The 12 Most Popular Celeb Baby Names Will Give You Great Ideas

blue ivyThanks to Kourtney Kardashian's ridiculously adorable son, I think most of us know someone, or know someone who knows someone, who has a baby named Mason. Or perhaps you roll in a quirkier circle and know someone who's named their baby Blue, thanks to Beyonce. Basically, what I'm trying to say here is -- celebrities, and all their infinite wisdom, have an influence on baby names. Or, more specifically, celebrity babies have an influence on baby names.

Cute! I think all these names are beautiful, and I'd certainly consider any of them for a child of my own (or at least as a middle name). Except I wouldn't. Because, I don't know, I feel a little funny giving my kid a "celebrity baby name."

Well, let me clarify. I'd feel a little funny giving my kid a "super unusual baby name." Like, for me, Blue's off-limits. I actually think it's a great name, but it's kind of like Beyonce and Jay-Z's name. Vivienne, on the other hand, is more common. It's not like Brad and Ang invented it or anything. You know what I'm saying? Am I making any sense?

Side note, I'm convinced that celebs have people helping them come up with baby names. How else do they always come up with such cute and original names? Or are they all really just innately cool?

Deep thoughts.

Would you give your kid a "celeb baby name"?
