celeb baby names 474

Towards the end of 2016, celebrity stars welcomed babies called Mabel (Russel Brand), River (Jamie Oliver), Wolf (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) Ines (Blake Lively), Deveraux (Mick Jagger) and Lula rose (Liv Tyler).

The celebs are always a great source of unusual and out there name choices, so we are taking a look at some of 2017’s baby name monikers from the stars.

Janet Jackson
Famous Jackson sister, Janet, took the world by storm last year announcing she was expecting her first baby, aged 50. The first celeb baby of 2017 on our list is Janet and husband Wissam Al Mana son, named Eissa (eye-sa ) Al Mana. 
The unusual name origin is Hebrew. Eissa is a variation of Eisa (Arabic) and means salvation.

Geri Halliwell
Former Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell (now Horner) has also started 2017 with a new arrival. The singer gave birth to her first child with husband Christian in late January. The celeb couple named their son: Montague George Hector Horner. 
The strong name choice Montague is mainly used in the English language and its origin is French. The name means the pointed hill.

Stephanie Davis
Hollyoaks and Celebrity Big Brother star, Stephanie Davis also gave birth at the beginning of 2017. She has named her new son, Caben-Albi George. 
The name is said to mean that you are clever in mind, capable of grasping and assimilating new ideas easily.

Mel Gibson
Ageing Hollywood actor, Mel Gibson marked 2017 with becoming a dad for the ninth time, at the ripe old age of 61. The new baby boy was born late January and Mel and 26, girlfriend, Rosalind Ross, have named their son: Lars Gerard Gibson.
The name Lars comes from the Roman name Laurentius meaning “crowned with laurel.”
