Baby Names We IDOL-ize
Rockin' 50s-Inspired Names: Ace, Bo, Scotty, Bucky, Didi, Blake Rock 'n' roll hit the scene in the mid-1950s, along with tons of outta-sight names! No doubt these Idols' mommy-and-daddy-o's were inspired by the hip and happening 1950s.
Unusual Names That Are Bound for Fame: Constantine, Fantasia, Ramiele Chaka Khan. Bono. A symbol (a.k.a. The Artist Formally Known as Prince). If musicians have taught us anything, it's that an unusually awesome name pretty much guarantees fame!
David: Just David! Not only has David appeared three times among the top 100 American Idol finalists, but season 7's runner-up and winner were both named David, so it's bound to be a winner!
Earthy Names: Brooke, Jasmine, Clay, Crystal Earthy baby names are everywhere these days and our beloved Idol is no exception. Dub your baby with a name plucked straight from nature and he or she is bound to be a songbird!
Traditional Names: Charles, Christina, Andrew, Katharine, Paul We say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Especially when it comes to baby names. These traditional names have been super-popular with parents-to-be for decades ... and have been among American Idol finalists since season 1.
Initialed Names: Ejay, A.J., R.J. Initialed names are C-U-T-E for B-A-B-Y. Not only do they make adorably spunky nicknames—but they'd look fab on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, too!
Names of Motown Stars: Latoya, Michael, James, Diana Today's kids may be down with Bieber and Britney, but back in the day, Motown Records had all the big stars! So, take a cue from Motown and Idol and give your funky little baby a soulful name.
