In a year that has been so difficult, it is beautiful to see families growing and babies being born into the world. And sometimes, those babies are born to celebrity parents.
A celebrity baby name can spark a trend or spark snark (remember when every man on late-night television made fun of Gwyneth Paltrow for naming her baby Apple? Or when Kim K and Kanye named their kids and the same thing happened? )
This article isn't about that. This a judgment-free zone. We are presenting the celebrity baby names of 2020 for other parents to peruse and consider, but we don't believe in mocking name choices (you hear that, late-night hosts?).
A baby's name is something parents put a lot of thought into, and here are a bunch we can't stop thinking about in 2020:
Cameron Diaz + Benji Madden's name pick: Raddix
Raddix's birth announcement shocked the world because most people were not aware Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden were expecting. The announcement was thrilling and so is the name.
