It was all about honoring Daddy for two celebs who welcomed new sons recently—and a cool, offbeat baby name for a girl for a third.
Zombie fighter Sonequa Martin-Green from The Walking Dead and her husband Kenric Green kept it in the family with their baby name pick for their son: Kenric Justin Green II, named after Daddy. Kenric seems to be a variant spelling of Kendrick, an English name that means ruler and is currently in the top 350 baby names in the United States. I'm kind of loving Kenric as an updated way to honor a Kenneth (or a Kenneth and a Richard) in your family tree.
Finally, singers Vanessa Carlton and James McCauley welcomed daughter Sidney Aoibheann. Sidney has been on a sharp decline, and falls just inside the top 1000 baby names for both boys and girls—it's been recently overshadowed by the ultrapopular Sydney spelling. Aoibheann may seem like a tongue twister of a baby name, but it's actually pronounced "Even." It's an Irish name that means beautiful sheen.
Tell us: What do you think of this latest batch of celebrity baby name picks? Is there anything you'd consider amongst the names?
