Two More Obnoxious Celebrity Baby Names


Soccer player Gabriel Zakuani and his girlfriend welcomed a baby boy in September and named him Trendy.

[Gabriel] said: “People have asked if his name is because of ‘trending topics’ on Twitter. Maybe it was in the back of my mind.”

Gabriel said the name also refers to the baby’s mum Shanice Petrie’s job in fashion. He said: “The official reason was she wanted something to reflect that. But it was me who came up with Trendy.”


Actress Shayne Lamas and her husband welcomed a baby girl on 11-11-11 and named her Press.

Her unusual name started off as a joke between the couple, but is now a confirmed reality.

‘Her name came to us at the beginning of my pregnancy, because she was getting so much press,’ Shayne told E! News prior to the birth.

‘It started as a joke, her nickname was ‘Press Baby,’ but when we found out it was a girl, suddenly that was her name – her name was going to be Press!

‘I think Press is a beautiful name, we’re elated, little princess Press!’

Most Popular First Letter-Pairs of U.S. Baby Names

Mathematically speaking, it’s possible to construct 676 pairs of letters from a 26-letter alphabet. In terms of baby names, though, only a portion of these pairs can realistically be used to start a baby name.

If you look at each of the 6,692 names that have ever ranked among the most popular U.S. (1880-2006), you’ll notice that only 233 two-letter combinations have ever been used at the beginning of the names (e.g., “Na-” for Nancy, or “Ev-” for Evan).

So…what’s the most common pair of starting letters?

Ma– is the clear winner. It starts nearly twice as many names as Ja-, the second most common starting letter-pair.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of all the two-letter combinations that have started at least 100 ranked baby names:

  • 331 “Ma-” names (Mark, Mandy, Matthias, Marylouise)
  • 177 “Ja-” names (Jane, Jacob, Jaleesa, Jamarion)
  • 174 “Al-” names (Alf, Alice, Alphonso, Albertina)
  • 167 “De-” names (Dean, Della, Devontae, Demetria)
  • 157 “Ka-” names (Karl, Katie, Kameron, Katharina)
  • 144 “Sh-” names (Shane, Sherman, Shanice, Sheridan)
  • 143 “Ca-” names (Cash, Cadence, Carmella, Casimiro)
  • 139 “Da-” names (Dave, Daisy, Damarcus, Dayanara)
  • 125 “El-” names (Elmo, Elyse, Elijah, Eleanora)
  • 121 “Ro-” names (Ross, Roxie, Roosevelt, Rosalinda)
  • 118 “Br-” names (Bruce, Brenda, Bryson, Brittany)
  • 118 “Ch-” names (Chad, Chantal, Christopher, Christiana)
  • 117 “La-” names (Lane, Laura, Lafayette, Lakeshia)
  • 113 “Le-” names (Les, Leah, Leandra, Leopoldo)
  • 102 “Je-” names (Jeff, Jewel, Jennifer, Jeremiah)
  • 101 “Jo-” names (John, Joanna, Joshua, Josefina)
  • 100 “Ar-” names (Art, Arla, Armani, Araceli)
