Is this the most ‘celeb’ baby name of 2017 (so far)?

We think this (completely made-up) award definitely has to go to this US star...


We love finding out what celebs have called their little ones ?


Whether they’ve picked something VERY unusual like Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, or something nature-themed like the Olivers, or something inspired by a mysterious stranger like Stephanie Davis, there’s usually always *something* special about the names the stars pick for their babies.

And this one’s no exception. In fact, it might be the most slebby baby name we’ve heard so far this year!

US star Nick Cannon – who’s known for appearing in films, making music and being a comedian, as well as being Mariah Carey’s ex-husband – has just revealed his newborn son’s very interesting moniker.

Sharing a snap of himself holding his son, Nick announced the news on Instagram:

“Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning! No matter how hard the world may hit you, God always reminds us of our purpose! #TrueHappinessWelcome to Earth Son! Golden “Sagon” Cannon 2/21/17 #Awakened”

Yep, Nick’s son is called Golden Sagon Cannon.

We’re not 100% clear if Sagon is Golden’s middle name or his nickname, but let’s stop for a second and talk about the name Golden…

Perhaps – and we’re just guessing here – the name could refer to a sunny outlook on things, or maybe it represents the more glamorous things in life.

It seems that Nick’s newborn is having an impact on name trends already, though, as, according to baby name site Nameberry, Golden has been searched for 205% more times this week than it was the previous week. 

Either way, we think Golden Cannon has a real ring ? to it.

Sagon, however, is traditionally a surname. So we wonder if it has some special meaning to Nick or his partner, Golden’s mum Brittney Bell.

36-year-old Nick is also dad to son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, the 5-year-old twins he shares with Mariah.

So we probably should’ve guessed his next name choice would be a doozy ?


Have your say

What do you think of Nick and Brittney’s unusual baby name choice? Too celeb/flashy for you, or do you like that names that no other child on the playground will have?
