Laugh out loud baby names inspired by comedians

User Rating: / 1

Does your baby already have a keen sense of comedic timing in utero? Somehow they always seem to find the most ridiculous moment to press the bladder or activate morning sickness. Laugh it off with a baby name inspired by the comedy scene.

Comedy has a way of bringing us together in the darkest of times. As we mourn the loss of legend Robin Williams, let's take a look at many of the other comedians who have provided inspiration, hope and laughter over the years. Check out our choice for baby names that will have the playground laughing with — not at — your little class clown.

Comedic baby names for boys

Whether you prefer standup, comedy films or good comedic writing, these dudes bring the laughs. We adore some of the surnames as first names, like Martin and Patton.

Comedic baby names for girls

You've got to love the women of comedy. Their subversive wit and observations on feminism lighten an otherwise heavy topic. Lucille is the definitive comedy name for girls. Even if you don't love Lucy, Lulu makes an adorable diminutive.

Baby names inspired by comedian stage names

Not every name is a good fit for the stage. These comedians dressed up their given monikers or chose brand new ones completely. Did you know George Burns wasn't named George at all?
