Feeling fierce! Unique celebrity baby names are nothing new — North West, anyone? — but these moms gave their little ones animal-themed monikers. Jessica Simpson, who welcomed her third child in March 2019, deviated from the more traditional names she gave her first two kids — daughter Maxwell and son Ace — when she chose Birdie for her second baby girl. The Dukes of Hazzard actress revealed the name two months before giving birth at her baby shower. She celebrated her pregnancy in a lacy white dress, fur cardigan and flower crown, posing for pics in front of a “Birdie’s Nest” sign with her family. “We are so happy and proud to announce the birth of our perfect daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson,” she captioned a black-and-white Instagram post when the newborn arrived. “3.19.19. 10 Pounds. 13 Ounces.” In the sweet sibling shot, Maxwell held her baby sister’s hand while Ace looked down at the infant. “Congrats mama!!! Yay birdie! Welcome home,” Hilary Duff commented on the upload, while Lena Dunham added, “I am always happier for you than literally anyone I actually know!!! I root for you forever!!!” Simpson isn’t the only celebrity mom to name her bundle of joy after an animal — or to name her daughter Birdie! In fact, Busy Philipps chose that same name for her daughter when she welcomed her in 2008. Five years after Birdie Leigh’s birth, the Busy Tonight host and her husband, Marc Silverstein, had their second daughter — Cricket Pearl.

Birdie Johnson

Simpson had her third child’s name picked out for months, revealing her unique choice at her January 2019 baby shower. The singer gave birth to Birdie in March.

Colette Koala Haggerty

Macklemore and his wife, Tricia Davis, welcomed their second baby girl in March 2018. Colette Koala joined older sister, Sloane Ava Simone, who was born in 2015.

Elsie Otter and Charlie Wolf Pechenik

Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik, gave both their daughter and son, born in 2015 and 2017, respectively, animal-themed middle names. “We thought Elsie is, like, kind of a classic name. A lot of people have grandmas and aunts name Elsie,” the New Girl alum said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2016. “And then, we were like, ‘You know, the middle name can be a little bit wild.'”

Bear Grey Payne

“He leapt out of his mother and caught a salmon and immediately started fighting with another bear,” Payne joked when asked about his and Chery Cole‘s son’s middle name on the The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Sparrow James Midnight Madden

After naming their daughter Harlow Winter Kate when she arrived in 2009, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden chose Sparrow James Midnight for their son’s moniker one year later.

Bear Blaze Winslet

“Bear’s second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. The house burned down and we survived,” Kate Winslet explained on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2016. “But we wanted something of the fire and so Blaze was the name that we came up with. Bear Blaze.”

Birdie Leigh and Cricket Pearl Silverstein

“Since I grew up with a nickname — Busy being short for Elizabeth — when my husband and I started to have our babies, we decided that if wanted to call our kids something, we would just name them that thing that we wanted to call them,” Philipps revealed on the Today show in 2014.

Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa

Momoa welcomed his son with Lisa Bonet in 2008 and named the little one Nakoa-Wolf.

Noah Phoenix Ambrosio Mazur

Alessandra Ambrosio gave her son the middle name Phoenix when she and her ex-fiancé, Jamie Mazur, welcomed him in 2012.

Bear Blu Jarecki

Another Bear! Alicia Silverstone told Us Weekly exclusively that her first husband, Christopher Jarecki, suggested the name Bear Blu for their son in 2011 — and she “loved them both.”

Jack Lion Hartzler

Evanescence’s Amy Lee welcomed her son in 2014 and gave him the middle name Lion. She later dressed the baby boy up in a Halloween costume that paid homage to this.

Mirabella Bunny Adams

After his daughter arrived on Easter Friday in 2011, Bryan Adams named her Mirabella Bunny Adams.

Puma Sabti Curry

Singer Erykah Badu and rapper The D.O.C. welcomed their daughter, Puma, in 2004. Badu also shares Seven Sirius Benjamin with OutKast’s André 3000 and Mars Merkaba Thedford with Jay Electronica.
