Celebrity Baby Names: A Daughter for Eric Decker and Jessie James

Jessie James and Eric Decker
It's a girl for E! reality show stars New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and his wife, country singer Jessie James. And they gave her a really sweet name that's got that red-hot "v" sound—Vivianne Rose.

Vivianne is a variant spelling of Vivian, which comes from the Latin for "life." Vivian is currently a top 200 name here in the U.S., but this unique spelling hasn't ever cracked the top 1000.It started out as a boys' name, but it's been squarely in the girls' camp for decades.

Rose is a very popular name right now, especially as a middle name—it's currently a top 300 baby name in the U.S.

All in all, I think it's a lovely name with a lovely meaning, and a more classic choice than your standard celebrity baby name.

What do you think of the name Vivianne Rose? Is it something you'd put on your baby name short list?
