Hottest Names Inspired by Celebrities
Mon, 08-27-2012 - 2:27pm

Celebrity names -- from Ava Gardner to Angelina Jolie and Miles Davis to Michael Jordan -- have influenced the names of babies over recent years.

But now there's a brand new generation of stars whose names are proving inspirational to parents.

From the worlds of music, sports and reality TV along with films, celebrity names are showing major gains on the new popularity lists in both the US and the UK.

Many of these new celebrity names are unusual, exotic and rarely heard before their famous bearers brought them to our attention, and their current popularity can be attributed directly to the stars who made them shine.


What's your favorite name from the list? I think I'd go with Mila.  How about you?

Mila is cute. I also like Harry and Kellan as well as Elle.
