Jaime King's Baby Name Pick: Get the Scoop!

Actress Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman welcomed their second son (Taylor Swift's godson!) earlier this week—and shared the news via  this awesome breastfeeding birth announcement pic—but they kept us all waiting a few days before announcing their baby name. Now we know: Joining big brother James Knight is Leo Thames!

Leo has become a pretty hot baby name pick for boys since the turn of the 21st century—so maybe we can chalk that up to actor Leo DiCaprio, or to the fact that actors Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz also chose it for their son? It comes from the Latin word for lion, and it's currently sitting at #97 on the popularity charts.

A spokesperson said that Jaime and Kyle decided to use Thames in the middle in honor of the legendary river in London, which holds special meaning for the family—Jaime and Kyle were married near it. I think it's a lovely choice, and a nice reminder that you can pick a middle name with special and sentimental meaning to you, even if it's a bit offbeat.

All in all, I think it's a winning combination, and one that nicely complements the name they picked for big brother James.

Tell us: What do you think of Jaime and Kyle's baby name choice? Is Leo on your short list? And did you pick a name with special meaning to you for your son or daughter?
