2006 Celebrity Baby Names: Shiloh Beats Suri

WILTON, CT. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Celebrities have been popping out kids this year like it’s going out of style, but one blogger says some of their baby’s names will spark name trends for years to come.

Neil Street is the editor of, which has just released a list of the top celebrity baby names of 2006.

Not surprisingly, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter, Shiloh Novel, came in No. 1 followed closely by Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter, Suri Cruise.

Street speculates that Shiloh and Suri will be stylish baby names for a while, but says Shiloh will ultimately beat out Suri in the name game.

Street says: “People still don’t really know what Suri means.”

Other weird baby names making the cut include Diddy’s newborn twin, Jesse James Combs, who is named after the rapper’s grandma, Jessie, not the outlaw Jesse James.

Street also gives baby name bonus points to magician Penn Jillette, who named his son, Zolten, because it’s his wife’s maiden name and also the name of Dracula’s dog.
