Celebrity Baby Names: What the Monikers Mean (GALLERY)

What's in a baby's name?
A brand-new Hollywood baby boom is underway — and it's spawning more bundles of joy.

With every arrival of the stork, celebrity parents play the name game. From sweet and sentimental, to outlandish and odd, to meaningful and matchless, stars bestow a wide range of monikers on their tots.

This summer alone spurred many brand-new famous little ones — and, in turn, many new celebrity baby names.

From Jessica Simpson's daughter Maxwell, to Snooki's son Lorenzo, to Sienna Miller's daughter Marlowe, Hollywood's newest bambinos brought in a new wave of celebrity names.

But what do they all mean? Celebuzz is breaking down the real meaning behind the monikers of new famous offspring.

Find out the significance of Maxwell, Marlowe and many more in the Celebuzz gallery.

    Sienna in italian means NOTHING. Terra di Siena means reddish brown.

    Wow, better watch your back, Courtney, DHTT is throwing ALL CAPS your way, not to mention all those exclamation points... Anyway, I like most of these names (except Apple and Jermajesty), but my favorite celeb baby name still has to be Pilot Inspektor. Kudos to David Duchovny though for going against the weird baby name trend while sticking with it at the same time, naming his son Kyd. -Miek, co-author with Kerry of HELLO, MY NAME IS PABST

    as long as the childrne are healthy and the name have meaning to their parents why should it matter to the public what celebs name their kids. Jessica Simpson's daughter Maxwell Drew is named for her grandmothers maiden names kind of like Claire Newman's middle name Olivia was chosen to honor the daughter of a family friend who had died of illness in childhood.

    "Charlotte means feminine in French" - again, poor reasearch. In French, Charlotte is also the feminine for Charles

    "Drew has double meaning: In Greek, the name denotes courage" - Someone should have double-checked that, because the name Drew doesn't exist in Greek. It's a nickname for the name Andrew, Andreas in Greek, which then means "man"
