Courtney and Mario Lopez 28457

It's a boy for Extra host (and Saved By the Bell alum) Mario Lopez and his wife, Courtney. Son Dominic joins big sister Gia Francesca—a sweet sibling pair, don't you think?

Dominic means "belonging to the Lord," and it's been a top 400 name for over a century. Today it's #70 on the U.S. charts, and it's on a steady climb toward the top. The name comes with some great nicknames—Dom or Nick being the most common. It's been the name of several actors, including 70s comedy staple Dom Deluise and former Hobbit Dominic Monaghan.

No word yet on what Mario and Courtney chose for a middle name, but Mario would be a lovely homage to Dad. It also pairs nicely with Vincent, Lucius or Javier.

What do you think of the name Dominic? Is it one you'd pick for your son?
