I love following celebrity baby names, and as an [name_f]Asian[/name_f]-American, I particularly am interested in the naming trends among modern [name_f]Asian[/name_f] couples.
This is not to portray them as necessarily different from names given by celebrities overall.
However, there are several factors that I think are particularly interesting about [name_f]Asian[/name_f] names. Some of the surnames in [name_f]Asian[/name_f] countries are extremely common and makes it all the more important to find a distinctive first. It’s also nice to have a name that transitions into the parent’s native language.
Here are some of my favorite baby names within the [name_f]Asian[/name_f]-American celebrity universe! What are yours?
Gene Luen Yang and [name_f]Theresa[/name_f] [name_u]Kim[/name_u] Yang: Kolbe
Harry Shum [name_m]Jr[/name_m]. and [name_u]Shelby[/name_u] Rabara: [name_f]Xia[/name_f]
Laura Ling and [name_m]Iain[/name_m] [name_m]Clayton[/name_m]: [name_u]Li[/name_u] and [name_u]Kai[/name_u]
John [name_f]Cho[/name_f] and [name_f]Kerri[/name_f] Higuchi: [name_m]Kage[/name_m]
