Celebrity Baby Names: Nick and Vanessa Lachey's New Daughter

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey
Nick and Vanessa Lachey must have mapped out their baby names with an atlas! Joining big brother Camden John is a baby sister with another place name/classic name pairing—Brooklyn Elisabeth.

Brooklyn is a top 30 baby name for girls, and picked based on the hot New York City borough. Victoria and David Beckham picked it for their son way back in 1999, and since then it's taken off, but mostly for the girls.

Elisabeth, of course, is an alternative spelling of the classic, top-of-the-charts perennial, and shares its meaning, consecrated to God. With this spelling, it's below the top 600 name picks in the country.

Tell us: What do you think of Nick and Vanessa's pick? Is it one you'd consider for your daughter or son? And would you/did you choose a theme for your baby names?
