Including an Apple, a Rafael, a Silas and a Sir...

Celebrity baby names are something of a wonder to us common folk. They're fascinating, unique, and sometimes, totally whacky. North West, anyone?

Just yesterday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the arrival of Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, their second child (here's what the Queen had to say on the news, plus Harry and Meghan's cute statement). So we thought it time to round up all all the celebrity baby names we bet you didn't know. Think Rafael, Silas, Sir and more...

Every once in a while, you get a really out-there pick that captures the attention of the nation. Take Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin naming their first child Apple, for example. Remember the uproar? We jest - what you call your kid is, ultimately, totally up to you - each to their own.

Plus, new research from the Office for National Statistics shows that baby names are moving further away from the traditional, as the years pass.

We bought you the most popular autumn baby names for 2020. Next up: celebrity baby names. Read to scroll our pick of the celebrity best? We've got them all in one place for you.
