The pop culture icons of today provide a tremendous array of well-known, yet unique, ideas for baby names. Look no further than your favorite book, movie, TV show or musical entertainer for the most up-to-date inspiration pop culture can give.

Supernatural TV shows

We can't pull ourselves away from shows like American Horror Story and Game of Thrones. Are you a true enough fan that you'll let one of the great supernatural programs influence your baby name selection? If so, then you'll appreciate the likes of these character-inspired monikers:

Blockbuster movies

The most anticipated films of the year have something for everyone. From Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl on the big screen to Disney's lucrative release of the hit Frozen on DVD, baby name inspiration abounds!

The music scene

Music can define a generation. Today, we can walk around with thousands of our favorite songs on a tiny smartphone and help choose the nation's next superstar by tuning into singing competition shows. Will your baby-to-be bear the name of one of 2014's biggest music sensations?

  • Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani (The Voice, coaches) 
  • Josh Kaufman and Christina Grimmie (The Voice, finalists)
  • Ariana Grande (the current It Girl on the pop scene)
  • Pharrell Williams (Grammy-award winning musician)

Reality TV

Loosely defined reality television has become a staple in the field of entertainment. TV stations battle to come up with the most creative ways to convince viewers that "if it's on TV, then it must be real." From the down-home Honey Boo-Boo to the spoiled youth of Beverly Hills, reality shows are keepin' it real.

  • Brendan, Dorothy, Earvin, Jonny, Morgan and Roxy (Rich Kids of Beverly Hills)
  • Phil, Si, Willie and Jase (Duck Dynasty)
  • Jill and Derick (19 Kids and Counting)
