It's a girl for model/actress Milla Jovovich and husband Paul W.S. Anderson—and for their second daughter, they chose to follow the latest celeb trend of giving their daughter a baby name that's been traditionally used for boys. Joining big sister Ever Gabo is baby sister Dashiel Edon. (And that's a much better baby name than the one Ever suggested for her little sister—Toilet Bowl!)
Dashiel is a unique spelling for Dashiell, a British take on the French surname de Chiel. It's been picked by a slew of celebrities for their sons—actors Cate Blanchett and Jason Priestley, and rocker Alice Cooper. It comes with a couple of nicknames, including the stylish Dash and the more staid Shelly. It hasn't been a top 1000 choice for either boys or girls.
The middle name they chose, Edon, appears to be an alternative spelling of Aidan, though it could also be a variant of the more girly Eden. Depending on which name it originated from, Edon either means little fire or paradise.
It's definitely not a common choice for a girl—though Dashiel feels a little bit more feminine than some of the other baby names celebs have co-opted (hello, James!). What do you think of it?
