Two celebrity siblings’ monikers appear to be having a huge influence on new parents.
John, 41 has previously spoken about the couple’s process for choosing a name for their kids.
“We named our first daughter Luna Simone Stephens; every name we give to our kids I think will have a little bit of musical history to it. So Miles, is of course, the same name as the great Miles Davis,” he said shortly after the birth of Miles.

According to Pamela Redmond, Nameberry’s CEO, the list of popular names reflects how many people are looking up certain names on Nameberry’s website.
Pamela says Oliver, Levi and Leo are new entrants to the boys’ top 10 but she was surprised to see one name missing from the girls’ list this year: Cora.
But, as Pamela explains there’s a good reason why people are likely steering clear of it.
“Cora stood at Number 8 on the popular baby name website’s list at this time last year, and had moved all the way up to Number 6 on the official 2019 list. But the name is too reminiscent of coronavirus so its popularity is waning,” she writes.
