The Most Influential Celebrity Baby Names of 2018

This year was filled with lots of exciting celebrity baby announcements. From the royals to the Kardashians, we've gone through them all to bring you the most influential baby names and trends to watch in 2019. Enjoy! 


Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa

Kate's baby girl Rani (pronounced Ronnie) is a tribute to her partners father Ron. Putting a spin on a loved one's name or using a nickname version continues to be a big trend - and we love it! 


Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel 

Also inspired by a name from their family tree, Evan's father Hunter Spiegel. 


Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

One of the most popular names in the ketzel shop this year (find the rest here). Naming after musical or cultural icons is always on trend. Chrissy and John named their son after Miles Davis. 


Michael Buble and Luisana Lopalito

We love names with beautiful meanings like this one, the Spanish word for life. Looking for more girl names with beautiful meanings? Find them here


Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma 

There's no info that we can find on what inspired Hilary to choose this name for her baby girl. But somehow we think her 10.9 million Instagram followers approve of this unique name. 


Pippa Middleton and James Matthews

We love this classic name that also happens to be Prince Louis middle name. We predict it will be one of the most popular boys names in 2019. 


Prince William and Duchess Kate 

Here's another classic name to add to your list. This name is already hugely popular in the U.K and all over Europe and continues to rise in popularity. 

Royal side note: We can't wait for the most anticipated royal baby, maybe ever, coming soon from Meghan and Harry! We predict they'll shake things up a bit and choose something with a strong meaning or cultural significance. Under the Queen's approval of course. 


Kim and Kanye West 

The Kardashians continue to dominate baby name lists and set the trends. Kim and Kanye named their daughter after Kanye's hometown, but she goes by Chi (pronounced Shy). Trend alert, favourite cities and locations


Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott

Kylie's name choice doesn't really have an explanation but it will no doubt start a weather trend of names in 2019. 


Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson 

Although it sounds like just another made up Kardashian name, True is named after Khloe's maternal grandfather True Houghton and her father Robert True Kardashian. It's true! 

Are you expecting in 2019? We hope this list gives you some inspiration! Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below, on Instagram, Facebook, or send me an email at haley@ketzelbaby.com. I love to hear from you!
