Babies come into this world 365 days of the year and when you’re blessed with your little angel on (or around) a holiday such Valentine’s Day, there’s more than a little temptation to honor it with your baby’s name.

Our friends over at and  posted a great article about Valentine’s Day inspired baby names. Here are the highlights:

Let’s call it the obvious but still romantic choice. Both model Adriana Lima and and actress Salma Hayek named their daughters Valentina. And in a slightly more unusual selection, British musician Robbie Williams picked “Valentine” as a middle name for his son: Charlton Valentine Williams.

The name Rose is experiencing something of a vintage-cool resurgence. Most recently, actress Scarlett Johansson picked it for her baby daughter, Rose Dorothy.

It’s a popular middle name choice, too: Australian actress Rachel Griffiths and husband, artist Andrew Taylor, named their daughter Adelaide Rose. Soleil Moon Frye and husband Jason Goldberg named their first child Poet Sienna Rose. And Daily Show host Jon Stewart and wife Tracey named their daughter Maggie Rose.

British soccer star David Beckham and wife Victoria named their second son Romeo. Singer Jon Bon Jovi and wife Dorothea Hurley named their youngest son Romeo Jon.

Names that mean “lovable” or “beloved”: The girls’ names Adora, Aiko, Amanda, Amy, Daryl, Desiree, Suki, Taffy, and Trudy.  For boys, you might consider Alvin, David, Kevin, or Leif.

Names that mean “beautiful”: Belle, the French word for beautiful. Demi Moore and Bruce Willis named a daughter Tallulah Belle, and actress Lisa Rinna chose the name Delilah Belle for her first daughter.

The name Beau, the masculine counterpart to belle, also has some celebrity fans: Jamie-Lynn Sigler named her son Beau Kyle, and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton named a son Beau Lee.  Ving Rhames’ daughter is named Reign Beau as is actress Sarah Jane Morris’ daughter Beau Katherine.

Other names that mean beautiful. Try Adara or Adonia, both Greek for beautiful. Calista means “most beautiful.” Alana also means beautiful, along with Farrah, Kyla, Kylie, and Linda. There’s also the option of the ever-popular Bella, which is Italian for beautiful.
