With so many stars expecting this year, 2012 is shaping up to be a Celebrity Baby Boom! So while these superstar mamas-to-be are busy growing those babies, we’ve got some award-winning name ideas for their soon-to-be supporting cast.
Jennifer Garner, Due Winter 2012
Theme: Floral Names
Jennifer and Ben totally embrace the floral baby name trend their two girls, Violet Anne and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, are proof! We think names like Laurel, Scarlett, Jasper, Linnaea, Forrest and Bryony would make gorgeous additions to their little bouquet.
Hilary Duff, Due Winter 2012
Theme: Classic Boy Names From Mama’s Movies
Traditional names like Frank, Gordon, David, Matthew and Ethan have been super-popular with parents-to-be for decades … and just so happen to be characters from Hilary’s own movies, too!
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Due Spring 2012
Theme: Names From Kids’ Literature
Maybe Maggie Gyllenhaal will pay homage to another kick-butt character from kids’ literature and give her daughter, Ramona, a similarly named sibling like Matilda (Matilda), Charlie (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Thomas (Tom Sawyer) or Alice (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).
Kaitlin Olson, Due Spring 2012
Theme: Rock Star Boy Names
Kaitlin Olson already has a kid called Axel– so, why not add another little rock star to the mix? The It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star can just scroll through her iTunes for baby name-spiration! We’re thinking Jagger, Hendrix, Lennon, Presley, Marley and Cash.
Alyson Hannigan, Due Spring 2012
Theme: Names Straight Outta Yoga Class
Alyson Hannigan’s daughter Satyana’s name just oozes “Ohm”! Maybe the mama-to-be can keep her household calm by choosing another Zen-inspired name like Chandra, Sage, Padma, Shanti, Surya or Pari for baby #2.
Kourtney Kardashian, Due Summer 2012
Theme: Occupational Names
Kourtney Kardashian will be able to start her own construction crew if she chooses another “occupational” name for Mason’s new brother or sister! Worker-bee names we love include Chandler, Hunter, Piper, Harper, Tanner and Bailey.
