Not only does Megan Fox have the best post-birth body we’ve ever seen but now her son is sharing the spotlight, being awarded with "best celebrity baby name" by parenting website, Bounty.

Noah took first place in a poll of over 2000 women, with Hilary Duff's 10-month-old son Luca Cruz coming in second.

The award for the "worst celeb baby name" was given to Take That singer Mark Owen's daughter Fox India, closely followed by Billie Piper's Eugene and Beyonce’s Blue Ivy being awarded seventh worst.

Bounty spokesperson Lisa Penney noted the "supermarket test" that celeb baby names need to pass in order to be deemed trendy.

"Rightly or wrongly we all have opinions about the names that celebrities give their newborns," she said.

"Our baby names database shows that some parents take inspiration from them with many celeb baby names setting future trends.

"Parents do need to think very carefully about everything that comes attached to an unusual moniker as it can definitely shape a child’s experiences from how they are treated at school and beyond — which is not such a problem for celebrity children.

"That said, today’s trends change more quickly and names that seem relatively unusual and quirky can quickly become mainstream and common in the classroom."

For example, calling out "Fox India" in a crowded supermarket sounds more like you're referencing an indie band rather than a washed-up British pop singer’s bundle of joy.

But we also think some of these "favourite celeb baby name" winners could easily be deemed losers when the novelty is gone in a few months. Seriously, what kind of a name is Marnie Mae?
