Celebrity Baby Names: Hugh Grant Welcomes Son

Hugh Grant has welcomed a second child with Chinese model/actress Tinglan Hong—son Felix Chang joined daughter Tabitha Jingxi.

Felix comes from the Latin word for happiness. It's a name that's on a bit of an uptick here in the U.S.—currently about to hit the top 300 baby names in our country. Felix is most often associated with the popular cartoon kitty, and of course, neat freak Odd Couple roommate Felix Unger. If you're someone who loves Alex and Max, but want something a little more off the beaten path, this might be the right choice for you.

As for the middle name, Hugh and Jinglan chose Chang, a Chinese name that means freedom, in homage to his mother's heritage.

I love Felix as a sibset with big sister, Tabitha. Her name is Aramic, and it means gazelle. It's slightly less popular than her baby brother's name (currently in the top 700 here in the U.S.), but still stylish enough to be picked for one of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's daughters. Her middle name, Jingxi, means "happy surprise," a beautiful choice for their daughter.

What do you think of Hugh and Tinglan's name choices? Do any of their baby name choices inspire you?
