1) Blue. Yep, Blue Ivy Carter is the Blue they're referring to,
and for what it's worth, we might be seeing Blue all over the place pretty soon
-- Jay-Z and Beyonce were denied a trademark.
Katniss. Nameberry says this was the most-viewed and clicked-on name
suggestion on their site, and it doesn't take a giant leap to assume at least
one of these parents pulled the trigger and named their little girl after The

Hard-core rocker Zakk Wylde, who's touring with Ozzy Osbourne's band
Black Sabbath, decided to pay homage to the death metal group with this unusual
12) Kick. Jeremy Sisto is apparently on Law &
Order, but he'll forever be the Cranberry CD-losing rich kid from

looking in the dictionary for a name that wasn't a name. Clever.
