50 gorgeous baby names in honour of our favourite Strictly stars

For expecting parents, picking a name for your little one ahead of their arrival can be such an exciting prospect. 

However, it can also sometimes be extremely difficult and daunting to know which choice will suit their personality best! So, that’s why it’s always a great idea to give yourself plenty of options.

One of our favourite ways to come up with beautiful baby names is to look to our most beloved TV shows for inspiration. Ahead of the launch of its 21st series this weekend, we thought it would be fun to shine a light on some of our favourite names from BBC's Strictly Come Dancing!

Whether it be previous winners, beloved cast members, old and new professional dancers, or the judges and hosts, there are lots of Strictly-fied names out there to have a think about. Below, we have picked out 50 of our favourites – 25 for boys and 25 for girls – to give you some ideas ahead of your newborn’s birth.

So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down below, and see if any of these glittering choices sound right for you and your baby:
