Hot Celebrity Baby Name: Harper!

PUBLISHED ON 08/02/2012

Looking for a star-worthy name for a baby girl? How about Harper?

Saturday Night Live star Bill Hader and his wife Maggie Carey welcomed their second daughter Saturday and named her Harper. Harper Hader (love the alliteration!) joins a elite group of celeb babies with the same first name. David and Victoria Beckham, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffani Thiessen, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Lisa Marie Presley all have daughters named Harper.

This English name, of course, reminds us of To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee. It means harp player. (How sweet!) And it appears to becoming more popular. The name came in 54th in 2011 on the Social Security Administration’s Top Baby Names List followed by Alexa and Makayla.
