4th Annual Awards: The Ten Best Celebrity Baby Names of 2009

Share Article

Now in its 4th year, the annual survey for best celebrity baby names of the year, co-sponsored by the internet's top celebrity baby names blog and a leading baby names website. The only annual celebrity baby name review with insight, tradition, and continuity.

Since 2006, the groundbreaking Celebrity Baby Names Blog has teamed up with leading baby names site Baby Names Garden to bring you the best celebrity baby names from the year gone by. Now the much-anticipated 2009 results are in!

2009 has been a year of unusual, dramatic, exotic, and sometimes wacky celebrity baby names. Every year there is at least one name that really causes a furor, with people loving it and hating it in about equal proportions. Last year, it was Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's son, Bronx Mowgli. This year, the most controversial name of 2009, and the number one pick for celebrity baby name of the year, is Sparrow James Midnight, second child for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden.

Second place goes to the daughter of British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, born in April and named Petal Blossom Rainbow. Little Petal joins big sisters Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo at home.

Third place in 2009 goes to Mars Merkaba, daughter of singer Erykah Badu and her boyfriend Jay Electronica. Mars was almost named Twitty Milk, and if she had been, the editors would have had a tougher job picking the number 1 name for 2009! But Twitty Milk was not to, so Mars came in third place.

In fourth place, the editors loved Kourtney Kardashian's new son, Mason Dash.

Fifth, Anne Heche came up with the name Atlas, so he could hold his own with big brother Homer.

In sixth place, the editors of Celebrity Baby Names Blog (http://www.CelebrityBabyNamesBlog.com) and Baby Names Garden (http://www.BabyNamesGarden.com) couldn't resist Bandit Lee, daughter of rockers Lyn-Z and Gerard Way.

For seventh spot, the nod went to a rocker baby named Gunner, son of musician Brandon Flowers and his wife Tana.

Eighth: is it a new way to spell Louisiana? Maybe. Check out Louisanna Ray, new daughter for actress Leelee Sobieski.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck snagged ninth place for their beautifully-named Seraphina Rose Elizabeth.

And in tenth place, rounding out this year's Top Ten Celebrity Baby Names, is Bardot Vita, daughter of Bones star David Boreanaz and former Playmate of the Year Jaime Bergman.

Congratulations to all the winners! Find many more details about the Top Ten, and all the wild and wacky celebrity baby names of 2009, at the Baby Names Garden Celebrity Baby Names Database, at http://www.babynamesgarden.com/ten-best-celebrity-baby-names-of-2009.aspx
