It’s a boy for Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy and husband David Miller—and their new bundle of joy is named Logan Phineas.
Logan has become an incredibly popular name in the U.S., especially in states with more outdoorsy vibes, such as the Pacific Northwest and Mountain regions. It’s a Scottish name that made it into the top 20 on the last Social Security Administration list, and will likely be headed toward the top 10 when the next list comes out this spring. It has a lovely meaning—”small hollow.”
Phineas is an up-and-comer name, which hadn’t been heard from much since the era of P.T. Barnum (AKA Phineas T. Barnum), the legendary circus master. But thanks to Julia Roberts, who gave the name Phinnaeus to her son, and to the Disney hit Phineas and Ferb, it’s come onto the radar of parents looking for an innovative, but still traditional name. (It’s also a nice way to get to Finn…the name of one of the characters from Murphy’s hit, Glee.) It’s a Hebrew name that means “oracle.”
What do you think of Ryan and David’s choice in baby names? Do you think Logan is something you’d consider for your son?Add a Comment
