Congratulations are in order for “Bachelor in Paradise” stars Carly Waddell and Evan Bass, who welcomed son Charles Wolfe Bass on Nov. 12. We also send our belated congrats to designer/reality star Lauren Conrad, who gave birth to Charlie Wolf back in October (Conrad is married to former musician William Tell).
Let us not forget, however, that Zooey Deschanel and former husband Jacob Pechenik kicked off the Charlie Wolf trend back in 2017 when their son was born. What is it about this name?
Much like we normals copy each other when it comes to baby names, so do celebs. Remember when Kate Winslet, Alicia Silverstone and Liam Payne all named their offspring "Bear"?
Then there are those who really went all out; in 2004 Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple. Jay-Z and Beyoncé named their firstborn Blue Ivy Carter, while Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West took things to the next level with North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm West. Just as they do with everything else, celebs are always trying to outdo each other with one-of-a-kind names.
It must be said, however, that "Mallrats" star Jason Lee’s son, Pilot Inspektor, is the gold standard to which all other celeb baby names are measured.
I guess the name combo of Charlie and Wolf was kind of cool back when Deschanel chose it two years ago (she thought it would pair well with daughter Elsie Otter’s name).
When she heard that Conrad and Tell also named their son Charlie Wolfe, Deschanel was...flattered?
“That was so weird, right? I don’t think she knew it," the "New Girl" star told Us Weekly. "We have a really good mutual friend, and she was like, ‘Did you know that Lauren Conrad …?’ I said, ‘No, that’s so funny!’ She’s like, ‘I don’t think she knew it.’”
We wonder, though, what happens when the three Charlies inevitably end up in the same local Starbucks, having ordered the exact same drink. It'll be like a Hallmark movie. Different parents, different DNA. No switches at birth, just pure coincidence that they were all named Charlie Wolfe.
If all else fails, they can start a band.
If the third Charlie Wolf decides his name is too common for LA, he can always just go by his last name and call himself Chuck Bass, but we swear we’ve heard that name before, too…
