For weeks after news broke of their welcoming their baby in December, the trending question was; WHAT IS THE NAME OF BLAKE LIVELY’S DAUGHTER? Both parents are well-loved as actors, but Blake Lively is also the curator of a cute artisan site called Preserve and many wondered if she'll choose a fanciful or unique name, in the footsteps of fellow site owner Gywneth Paltrow who named her daughter Apple.
As it turned out: the answer to all that speculation is now out. In early February, reports surfaced that the name was James. Many doubted the reports, because it is one name that is generally given to males - starting from the biblical James. I thought it could be likely as Blake is also usually a male name and it has done well for the actress mom.
Well, Ryan Reynolds has just confirmed the name. The private new dad opened up on the Today show yesterday, first joking: “It’s Butternut Summer Squash,” before finally adding,
“It’s James. Everyone knows. I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media. Because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, ‘Why did you do that?’”
So what do you think? Will you give your daughter a boy's name, what of the other way around? Anyone have a gender-bender name? How does that work out for you? SHare in the comments...
