Not all Hollywood parents give their kids rare or unusual names.

Many celebrities name their children after a family member, a happy memory or a meaningful word. Others just have a sneaky feeling that their baby was destined to carry a certain title.

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell named their daughter Grace Warrior after the baby's late grandfather, Steve "The Crocodile Hunter" Irwin.

"Her middle names, Warrior Irwin, are a tribute to my dad and his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior,” Bindi wrote on Instagram in 2021.

Jimmy Fallon and his wife, Nancy Juvonen, named their first daughter Winnie after Lake Winnipesaukee, one of their favorite places. George and Amal Clooney blessed their fraternal twins, Alexander and Ella, with common titles as opposed to "really dumb names," the actor said, to give people less reason to scrutinize them. "We didn’t have any great inspiration." 

Scroll this roster of cool celebrity baby names (and the funny or touching reasons they were chosen), including classics like Lucy and Ella, punchy stand-outs like Rocky or Win and popular staples like Gus, Michael and Gene.
