It's a girl for Jersey Shore alum JWoww (AKA Jenni Farley) and fiancé Roger Mathews. For their first daughter, they went with a unique pair of names—Meilani Alexandra. Meilani is a Hawaiian name that means beautiful sky, and hasn't broken the top 1000 in the U.S. (except, perhaps, in Hawaii itself). And Alexandra is a classic name that means defending men—it's a top 100 baby name here in the U.S..

I love the two names separately, but not sure they work as well together. With Meilani, I would pick a nature middle name, like Lily, Rose, Pearl or Wren.

Tell us: What do you think of JWoww's new daughter's name? Would you put Meilani and Alexandra together?
