Along with Ms. Middleton’s moniker, Isla Fisher’s daughter’s name ‘Elula’ is on the list, as well as Orlando Bloom’s baby’s name, ‘Flynn!’

First came Twilight and Teen Mom baby name domination, and now star-power is taking over! Based on figures from 23 million page views on Nameberry.com, website developer Pam Satran reveals that the name Pippa has sky-rocketed to the top of the list after Pippa Middleton captured the world’s attention at the Royal wedding!

Last year, Pippa didn’t even make the top 400 baby names! That’s a huge jump!

And Elula, the name of the youngest daughter of Isla Fisher and Sasha Baron Cohen, was not in the database in 2010, but is the 38th most searched-for name in 2011 so far, Satran adds.

Other celeb-inspired names this year include Mila, for actress Mila Kunis, and Flynn, the name of  Orlando Bloom and his wife, model Miranda Kerr‘s baby son.
