Has 1D's Louis Tomlinson Already Revealed His Baby Name Pick?

Louis Tomlinson
Teens and tweens worldwide were buzzing this week about the news that One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is expecting a baby with stylist Briana Jungwirth. And we may already have the inside scoop on what the baby name he'd love—at least, if it's a boy! According a Top of the Pops interview in 2012, Louis picked a pair of "L" names for a future son. "I've always quite liked the name Leo," he told the mag. "If I had a boy, I'd quite like to call him Leo, but I like Lucas as well."

Both names are quite stylish these days. But the question remains: What would he pick for a girl? If he wants to continue the L theme, I do love Luna, which has been on the rise in popularity ever since J.K. Rowling introduced the character Luna Lovegood in the fifth book of the Harry Potter series. If he wants to give a nod to his talents, Lyric makes a lovely baby girl name. And of course, there's the sweet and stylish Lucy, Lilian, and Lilah.

Naturally, Louis's taste in baby names may have changed in the three years since the interview came out—so it'll be interesting to see if those name picks stand.
