Which actress named her baby after a family member?

In the July issue of American Baby magazine, we asked you which celebrity named their child after a family member: Jessica Alba, Rebecca Romijn, Angelina Jolie, or Jennifer Lopez?

ANSWER! Angelina Jolie and Rebecca Romijn

Jolie and Brad Pitt's expanding brood welcomed twins on July 12, 2008. Born in Nice, France, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt have names with both family ties and French roots. Knox is Pitt's grandfather's middle name and Marchline is the middle name of Jolie's mother. Leon is French in origin and also the name of Jolie's great-great grandfather.

Future Models

The model and Ugly Betty actress gave birth to twin daughters on December 28, 2008. Charlie Tamara Tulip is named after husband Jerry O'Connell's brother, and the couple named her sister Dolly Rebecca Rose after country singer Dolly Parton.

Honorable Mention

The actress gave birth to her first child, daughter Honor Marie Warren, on June 7, 2008, in Los Angeles. Alba and husband Cash Warren were inspired to pick the unique name after a friend suggested it. Marie is also Alba's middle name.

What's in a Middle Name?

Lopez and husband singer and actor Marc Anthony chose original first names for their baby twins and picked middle names after family members. Maximilian David, named after Jennifer's father David, and Emme Maribel, after Marc's sister Maribel, were born on February 22, 2007.
