Naming your baby is definitely a highlight for a lot of parents – with so much choice around you can let your imagination fly. From TV names to something a little more unique, the world really is your oyster.

 

Considering music holds so many memories for most of us, we have compiled a list of pop star names, both past and present, that are sure to get the baby name juices flowing.

 

Girls:

 

1. Aaliyah – We constantly had Try Again on repeat! 

 

2. Adele – Stunningly beautiful; we love this!

 

3. Alicia – Alicia Keys and her piano were all we needed some days

 

4. Audrey – Faith Hill’s real name

 

5. Beyoncé – Strong and powerful; what a name to give your little girl

 

6. Britney – Ms Spears doesn’t need an introduction

 

7. Christina – If Britney features, then Christina needs to be here as well...

 

8. Dido – A little on the more unusual side, this is one of our favourites!

 

9. Faith – Her original name may be Audrey but we adore Faith just as much

 

10. Katy – Ms Perry’s real name may be Katheryn but we love the shortened version

 

11. Kylie – Small but powerful

 

12. Lana – It doesn’t sound as good when it doesn't end in Del Rey, but we still love it!

 

13. Leanne – When we think of Leanne Rimes we are instantly transported back to the days of Coyote Ugly!

 

14. Madonna – The Queen of Pop

 

15. Miley – Hopefully your little one won't grow up to be like Hanna Montana

 

16. Perrie – She may be going through heartbreak at the moment but at least she has a really cool name!

 

17. Stefani – Bet you never knew Lady Gaga had such a normal name!

 

18. Shania – Twain’s real name is actually Eilleen – fact of the day!

 

19. Tina – After the main woman herself - Tina Turner

 

20. Victoria – Despite being so far removed from her music days, Victoria Beckham will always be a Spice Girl to us!

 

 

Boys

 

1. Ben – Or you could go with Macklemore if you are after something really different...

 

2. Ed – With a voice like his, Mr Sheeran deserves to be on this list

4. Enrique – No list could be complete without this man!

 

5. David – Mr Bowe was one of the best

 

6. George – You could go for Michael or George Michael if you’re feeling brave!

 

7. Harry – Already popular so you don’t have to tell anyone you looked to 1D for inspiration...

 

8. Jamie – Jamie Foxx may be more of an actor these days but he’ll never be forgotten for his singing career
