The most unique celebrity baby names ever

Forget the "Olivias" and the "Noahs," because Hollywood has become known to forge its own path when it comes to celebrity baby names. 

We'd like to think that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin started the unique baby name trend with the birth of their two kids, Apple and Moses, but it seems like these eccentric monikers actually became a to-do many years prior.

And it's not just a fad for these A-list stars. Funnily enough, it's now more unusual for someone on the big screen to opt for a more traditional name for their child, like "Max" as opposed to one that's influenced by nature or a country.

From "Pilot Inspektor" to "Bodhi" to more than a few "Bears," scroll through above to see some of the most unconventional baby names we've heard of. You might just get some inspiration for your own children!

Popular babies names for 2018

AIDY

Thanks to SNL’s breakout star, this nickname for Aiden or Adele has class, sass and serious staying power.

COCO

Whether you’re channeling the classic (Chanel), the modern (Pixar’s latest blockbuster) or the Cox-Arquette, this one (a derivation of "cocoa") has good taste on lock.

GIGI

Just like its sister names Lulu, Mimi and Lula—this super-stylish mini moniker is simply irresistible.

KAI

Meaning “sea” in Hawaiian and “forgiveness” in Japanese, this unisex name was among the top 100 U.S. baby names last year and is up 11 points since 2016, according BabyCenter.

JASPER

Safer than Jagger, fresher than Jaden, the fifth most popular name of 2017, meaning “bringer of treasure,” continues to “rocket up the U.S. ranks,” according to Nameberry.

SAVANNAH

The Today host could use a hug, and possibly your child named in her honor. And since this is the 40th most popular girl’s name in the U.S., it’s both unique and uniquely recognizable.

GREY

Leave it to Molly Sims to make an eternally cool yet utterly refreshing choice.

LEVI

Conjuring classic denim and the children of both Matthew McConaughey and Sheryl Crow, the 29th most popular name of 2017 is steadily climbing the charts.

RONAN

In Celtic it means a pledge, or a promise. In 2018 it means deserving of an Oscar—and a Pulitzer.

QUINN

Of Irish origin meaning “wise,” it works for both boys and girls, as either a first or a middle name. Pretty smart indeed.

BODHI

While Patrick Swayze’s Point Break surfer will always be the original Bodhi to us, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder made waves when they gave this increasingly popular name to their baby daughter.

KENNEDY

Attention-grabbing and presidential, experts predict it will become one of the top five most popular baby names next year—for girls.

FINN

Predicted by some to be the number one name for boys in 2018, it didn’t even crack the top 100 last year.


 

AURORA

Ever since Rachel Bilson named her daughter Briar Rose, and Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz gave their son the middle name Mowgli, Disney names have been fair game. The experts at BabyGaga predict Sleeping Beauty’s given name—already the eighth most popular of 2017—will be a sleeper hit again next year.
