9 of our favourite celebrity baby names from the past year

Plenty of unique names for boys and girls right here.

When it comes to picking the perfect moniker for your little one, the world truly is your oyster.

While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with opting for a more traditional name, many parents feel under pressure to go in a more unique direction, and celebrities are no different.

The past year has seen a bit of a baby boom (I believe we have lockdown life to thank for that), and with it, a whole range of unique baby names.

If you’re looking for a little bit of inspiration, here are 10 of our favourite celebrity names from the past year.
