Just how much do celebrities influence our baby name choices? Whitepages, the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S., revealed that the celeb impact is quite strong.Take a look at the top 20 names Americans share with 2014 celebrity babies.

 

"Much like Prince George, whose name has increased in popularity since his birth last year, we expect that many of these names may also see a surge in popularity in the years to come," says Liz Powell, culture and trend expert at Whitepages. "Some of these names, like Ava [Stacy Keibler's daughter], are already in the top 10, while Alyssa Milano's daughter, Elizabella, has the most unique name on the list, with only seven people in the country sharing it."

When Scarlett Johansson named her daughter Rose, many parents followed suit. Rose tops the list of A-lister baby names, with 399,967 in the U.S. currently sharing the name (Most of whom live in New Jersey… the Garden State!).

Like Johansson, Olivia Wilde and Emily Blunt went "Old Hollywood" to name their offspring. Each chose a name — Otis and Hazel, respectively — that peaked in popularity before the 1920s.

The classes of 2020 and beyond will likely boast celeb baby names as well. Over 90 percent of people named Jaxon (Kristin Cavallari's son), Alijah (Kendra Wilkinson's daughter) and Lyric (Soleil Moon Frye's son) are under the age of 12.

Gender-neutral names are also hot among the stars. Kelly Clarkson named her daughter River, Drew Barrymore's daughter is Frankie and the precious daughter of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis will go by Wyatt.
