Alyssa Milano Gives Birth to a Boy

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Alyssa Milano gave birth to her first baby this morning. If you haven’t already heard, she named her son Milo Thomas. What’s the story behind her baby name choice? Linda Rosenkrantz and Pamela Redmond  of Nameberry offer their insight on the celebrity baby name.

Alyssa MilanoAlyssa Milano and husband David Bugliari have named their newborn son Milo Thomas, joining a growing group of celebs who have chosen this lively, multi-cultural name. They were preceded in the Milo Club by Ricki Lake (the first, in 1998), Camryn Manhein, Sherry Springfield and Liv Tyler.

Baby Bugliari’s middle name honors Alyssa’s father, Thomas Milano. And the sharing of letters of Milo with Milano, makes a nice tie to mom’s family name.

Milo was a fairly common name from the late 19th century until the 1950s, when it completely dropped off the charts until 2001, probably helped back by its celebrity connections. It now ranks at Number 422 on the Social Security’s most popular names list.

Milo has roots in ancient Greek culture, as well as in the German and Irish. Its image combines the strength of the great ancient Greek wrestler of that name—a six-time winner of the Olympic games—with an energetic, modern o-ending feel. More recently Milo has been associated with the dashing Milo Ventimiglia, of the TV series Heroes, and as characters on Alias and in Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Adults might associate the name with Milo Minderbinder in Catch-22, while kids will identify it with the cat in the movie Milo and Otis, and the main character in the children’s classic The Phantom Tollbooth.

Alyssa Milano: ‘I Want More Kids’

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

ALYSSA-4The former “Who’s the Boss?” star Alyssa Milano is expecting her first child with husband David Bugliari, and apparently is enjoying her pregnancy very, very much.  Babble.com’s Famecrawler blog had this to say about it:

Some women have terrible pregnancy experiences while others enjoy every aspect of pregnancy. These women usually don’t suffer from any severe morning sickness or have any other complications. Alyssa Milano is one of these women.

She says she has enjoyed being pregnant and has no complaints so far.

Milano looks like she could give birth any day now, but is not due until early fall. Yet there’s one thing she’s certain about already.

The former “Who’s The Boss” actress says that she wants to have more children.

Expecting a son with husband David Bugliari, Milano recently talked about how much she is loving her pregnancy:

“I’ve had such a great time being pregnant that you’re probably going to see me more pregnant than not in the next few years because I’m really digging it.”

Did you enjoy being pregnant?
