Celebrity Baby Names: Boys for a Hanson and a Homeland Star

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Two celebrity baby boys made their debut this week—first came Mmm-Bopper Zac Hanson’s brand new son, George Abraham Walker Hanson, then came Homeland star Morena Baccarin’s son, Julius.

George is quickly becoming a red-hot celebrity name, thanks in part to the royal baby. It means farmer, and is currently in the top 200 here in the U.S.—expect it to rise when the stats come out for 2013. It’s a royal and presidential name, and there’s a ton of legendary namesakes, from our first President to the famously curious monkey.

Zac Hanson has already said, though, that he’s calling the new baby by his middle name, Abraham—another long-time classic making a comeback. It’s a Biblical name, but one that’s most often associated with President Lincoln. It means father of multitudes.

Walker is a surname/occupational name, and is an up-and-coming name, currently #411 on the U.S. baby name popularity charts.

Morena Baccarin and husband Austin Chick welcomed son Julius a few days ago. Julius is most commonly linked with the famous Roman conqueror, Julius Caesar. The name means “youthful,” and the name is currently on the rise, after dipping into the 500s in the 1990s. It comes with the cool nickname “Jules.”

So, what do you think of the latest batch of celebrity baby names? Anything in the mix that you might consider for your baby?
