Many actors change their names, but some are born with wonderful names! In my latest name YouTube video, I talked these actors who were born with awesome names:
You can hear more about those names here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lg8_QZcLzY
Naturally, I couldn’t limit myself to just 20 stars with great names! So, here are a few more Hollywood name gems:
Born Avril Ramona Lavinge. Both Avril and Ramona are two cool names that are sorely underused in the U.S. Neither are in the top 1,000. Avril’s siblings are Michelle and Matthew.
Channing and Tatum, two interesting names. Channing’s middle name is Matthew.
The late Heath Ledger definitely had a cool, strong name. I could see his surname, Ledger gain popularity in the coming years.
Judd was born Judd Asher Nelson in 1959. Doesn’t Judd Asher sound like a modern combination? I could easily see this name used on a baby born today.
I love the name Liv. Feminine, simple, and strong. Liv has three half-siblings; Mia, Chelsea, and Taj.
Perfect name for an actor! The name Muse Watson is definitely a show stopper.
Neve’s first name is her mother, Marnie (Neve) Campbell’s maiden name.
His name is even more memorable than his hat ;). Pharrell’s father has an iconic name as well, Pharaoh William.
Full name Rebel Melanie Elizabeth Wilson. I definitely thought Rebel was just a stage name!
With a name like Ricki you have to wonder what she named her own kids. Ricki’s sons are Milo Sebastian & Owen Tyler.
How could I not include this cool spice name on this list? I think the flow is really cool with her surname as well.
Sela is just different enough where you wouldn’t hear it often, yet maintains a sweet softness making it unusual but usable.
Soleil Moon Frye
Clearly her parents were namers! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Soleil and husband Jason Goldberg have tree children; Poet Sienna Rose (g), Jagger Joseph Blue (g), and Lyric Sonny Roads (b).
Titus is a name I’ve seen buzzing around blogs and forums lately. Quite a bold & striking combination.
Vera & Taissa Farmiga
These famous sisters both have cool names. Born of Ukranian parents, their siblings are named Victor, Stephan, Nadia, Alexander, and Laryssa.
Ready for a family of great names? Viola is married to Julian Tennon and together they have a daughter named Genesis. Pretty cool, huh?
That’s all folks!
