While some celebs opted for normal names for their little ones, many did not. Check out the celebrity baby names of 2022 that got the internet talking.  Keep in mind a few celebs haven’t shared their baby names with the public yet – such as Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Sophie Turner and Rhianna.  

22 celebrity baby names that stole the spotlight

1. Legendary Love

We’re going to start the list with Nick Cannon. He welcomed five children in 2022, most with highly questionable names. Actually, most are adjectives, not names, including Legendary Love Cannon. Cannon shares Legendary with one of his many lady friends – Bree Tiesi.

2. Rise Messiah

Nick also opted for the name Rise Messiah for his other son born in 2022 which is about as extra as you can possibly get. The Messiah part is just the icing on the cake. Rise is Cannon’s third kid with another one of his girlfriends, Brittney Bell.

3. Beautiful Zeppelin 

We’re still riding the Nick Cannon baby-making wagon here with Beautiful Zeppelin. Nick welcomed two daughters in 2022. Onyx and Beautiful Zepplin. Onyx is actually not that odd and is rising in popularity but it’s Beautiful Zeppelin that made us all stop and shake our heads. 

Check out the full list of Nick’s kids’ names here. You won’t be disappointed. 

4. Malibu Barbie

YouTuber Trisha Paytas caused some serious confusion when she named her daughter Malibu Barbie, pairing the unique moniker with a Barbie-inspired nursery. You can check out the pink palace here.

Rebel Wilson welcomed her first bub via surrogate in 2022 and opted for a unique R name to matchy-matchy with her name, Rebel and her partner’s name, Ramona. R&R&R. 

6. Malti

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra also became parents for the first time in 2022, welcoming their baby girl, Malti. Malti is a Hindi word that means “tiny fragrant flower” or “moonlight”. 

7. Wilde Wolf 

When it comes to wild celebrity baby names, Eve wins! She and her husband Maximillian Cooper welcomed their first child together – Wilde Wolf. His full name is Wilde Wolf Fife Alexander Somers Cooper. Maximillian also has four other children – Lotus, Jagger, Cash, and Mini.

10. Bluesy Belle 

Another Glee alum also made the list this year – Darren Criss and his wife Mia Sweir opted for the very musical name Bluesy Belle for their daughter. 

11. Bronze 

NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany stole the spotlight at the end of 2022 by nicknaming their son Bronze. His full name is Patrick Bronze Lavon, but they will call him Bronze in order to match his big sister, Sterling. The couple also has two dogs named Silver and Steel. Not making this up. 

12. Wave Set Cephus

We predicted ocean baby names would catch on this year and boy did it ever with Cardi and Offset. Cephus means “stone” FYI. Wave was actually born in 2021 but we didn’t get to learn his name until 2022.
