It’s been a busy week for celebrity births—and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz is the latest star to welcome a child. He and girlfriend Meagan Camper welcomed a son, which they gave the offbeat name Saint Lazslo. (Pete Wentz also has a son named Bronx Mowgli with ex Ashlee Simpson.)
He’s also the second star this week to choose the name Saint—Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl gave the word name to his daughter as her middle name. It hasn’t ever ranked in the top 1000 names.
Lazslo is a different way to spell Laszlo, a Hungarian name that means glorious ruler, and is also relatively offbeat—it’s never been in the top 1000. Its biggest claim to fame is the character Victor Laszlo, the non-Humphrey Bogart guy in the classic movie Casablanca’s love triangle. I’m wondering if there’s someone in their families they’re honoring with this choice.
What do you think of Saint? Do you think it’s the next hot word name—or is it a little too wild for you?
