These celebrity parents may be offbeat but they sure are creative and inspiring!

With the release of the official list of popular baby names in the United States, comes a new wave of celebrity baby names!

Apple, Suri, and North had a good run but now these new names are on the rise!

If you’re looking to learn how to find the perfect name for your precious one, let these creative celebrity parents show you how.

Here are some  of the most popular celebrity baby names we absolutely love!

Ava

Though Academy award winner Reese Witherspoon chose this name for her daughter back in 1999, the name has been unmoved from the top 10 in over a decade.

It’s remained one of the most popular names in Hollywood, with Hugh Jackman and Jeremy Renner naming their daughters Ava as well.

Mason

After Kourtney Kardashian chose this name for her first child in 2009, it has been cemented at the top 3 spot ever since.

Harper

This one’s fairly new to the popular baby name game. Though award winning author Harper Lee has made this a go-to choice for book-loving parents, celebrities such as Neil Patrick Harris and Victoria Beckham catapulted it into the mainstream.

Victoria cited her love for Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ as her inspiration for naming the youngest of the Beckham brood.

Rose

Though it’s always been a popular choice for a middle name, actress Scarlett Johansson chose it for her daughter’s first name.

Since then, the vintage name has jumped up 25 places, landing at the top 166 spot, well on its way to reclaiming its place in the top 20 where it remained a century ago.

Silas

Though Biblical names have always been popular for both boys and girls, this particular one only made a comeback when Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel chose to name their son Silas Randall in April 2015.

Otis

Actors Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde welcomed their firstborn, Otis, in 2014.

This landed the name back in the list of popular baby names after decades of being neglected.

Frances

This vintage name was part of the top 10 in the 1910s but it has come back in style again when celebrities like Amanda Peet, and Jimmy Fallon revived it by choosing it for their daughters.

Hazel

Back in 2004, Julia Roberts chose to name her daughter Hazel, causing it to regain popularity.

More recently, though, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski chose the same name for their daughter.

And the recent success of the protagonist, Hazel Grace, of the film ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ further catapulted this name into fame.

Knox

Though Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have never been conventional when naming their kids, Knox was one of the names that stood out because it was unique and unheard of but rose in popularity since the A-list couple chose it for their son in 2008.

Everly

A name which seems like a fusion of more popular names Avery and Evelyn, this popular baby name practically came out of nowhere. It started to gain attention when Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan chose it for their firstborn daughter in 2013.

Hank

Reality star Kendra Wilkinson chose this traditional name for her son in 2009 and it has since been rising in popularity. Tennis star Andy Roddick and actress Brooklyn Decker also have a son named Hank.

Olive

This name has mom-of-two Drew Barrymore to thank for its ascent to fame in 2012.

Five years prior, though, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher started to bring this name back in the spotlight.

Frankie

The name of Drew Barrymore’s second child has also risen in popularity, proving that the actress-turned-entrepreneur could be well on her way to becoming one of the most influential baby namers.

A Basque name meaning “happy”, this name entered the baby name radar thanks to telenovela actor and host Adamari Lopez who chose this pretty name for her daughter.

Meilani

This Hawaiian name was brought into the limelight by Reality star and ‘Jersey Shore’ alum Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley.

Briar

This fairytale name was chosen by Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen of their daughter in 2014. It has since been rising in popularity, making it one of the baby names to watch.

Bodhi

Celebrity couple Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, who are expecting their third child together, chose this unique name for their second son, securing its place on the popular baby name map.

Apollo

Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Kingston, Gwen Stefani’s youngest son has become a little trendsetter ever since he was given this name.
