Stacy Keibler 28623

TV personality (and Dancing With the Stars finalist) Stacy Keibler and her husband, Jared Pobre, picked a name that will never end up on any wacky celebrity name list. In fact, they picked a name that you're very likely to hear around the playground: Ava Grace.

Ava means "life," and after nearly bottoming out on the baby name popularity charts in the 1980s, it began a sharp rise to its current #5 slot back in the mid 1990s. (My guess is that it rose hand in names like Emma and Olivia, as it bears the same simple feminine charm.)

Grace is a virtue name that's never gone out of style, though it's currently experiencing a huge resurgence, and is at #22. (If its use as a middle name was factored in, it'd probably be in the top 10 baby names.

All in all, Stacy and Jared picked a lovely and timeless name for their daughter.
