Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk just announced the arrival of baby #2, Harper Marie Kirk, born on May 25th.  Harper is welcomed by her older brother, Weston Lee Kirk.

Her birth marks the arrival of the 10th celebrity baby in the celebrity baby name's database born since 2008 with the name Harper. Nine of the Harper's born since 2008 have been girls, with the sole male Harper beign Harper Edward Weyman, son of actress Laura Allen.

While many people associate the start of the Harper baby name craze with Harper Seven Beckham, born in 2011, the trend actually starts a bit earlier. For instance, one of Neil Patrick Harris' twins, born in 2010, has the name Harper Grace Burtka-Harris.  In 2008, both Eddie Vedder and Lisa Marie Presley welcomed the arrival of daughters named Harper into their lives. 

The real trendsetter in the Harper craze, however, isn't a famous musician or award-winning actor.  That honor goes to primetime television creator extraordinaire, Shonda Rhimes, who welcomed her own daughter Harper back in 2002.

Harper Marie Kirk is the second celebrity baby Harper born so far in 2014, with Harper Barash being the first.  Harper continues to rise in popularity among celebrities, a trend that mirrors national trends, where the name Harper has risen from the 887th most popular name in 2004 to the 16th most popular girl's name in 2013.  If the trend continues, it's possible that Harper might crack into the top 10 in 2014.

Do you think that the name Harper will enter the top 10 this year?  How many celebrity babies named Harper do you think will be born this year?

naturally like your website however you have to take a look
at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are
rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform
the reality however I will surely come back again.
