Unless you've hooked up with Brad Pitt, Daniel Craig, Hugh Jackman or Will Smith, you won't be able to guarantee that your sproglet will be a looker. However, with the help of the Totally Honest Guide to Baby Names, you can almost make up for it by picking a looker's name.
As with every instalment of this guide, I am nothing if not totally serious about my suggestions. Today's selection is culled from the winners of various beauty contests, magazine lists and talent shows, all specifically focused on visual aesthetics, with not a single moment's thought for depth of personality or moral fibre.
These are the names that the world's most beautiful people have. Funnily enough, it seems oddly weighted towards girl's names.
You never know, pick one of these for your baby and the rest of the world may miraculously overlook its Shrek features and see only gorgeousness.
