It's a girl for Parents contributor (and Pregnant in Heels star) Rosie Pope! Joining siblings Vivienne, Wells and James is daughter Bridget Monroe.

Bridget is a top 500 name here in the U.S., and it means strength. She's the patron saint of Ireland, and most famously, the klutzy cool heroine of the Bridget Jones Diaries. It comes with cute nicknames like Bridie and Bree—and I love it in its own right. It's a sprightly, cheerful name.

Monroe started out as a place name and surname—and thanks to Marilyn Monroe and Mariah Carey, who chose it for her her daughter, it's become a cool name choice for girls. And considering Vivienne's middle name is another Presidential surname (Madison), it's kind of a fun set—Madison and Monroe, the fourth and fifth Presidents of the U.S.

What do you think of Rosie's name pick? Would Bridget or Monroe suit your baby naming style?
