And the outbreak continues...

Sigh. Sigh. Deeper sigh.

With one of the Hollywood's most private and seemingly successful marriages, an adorable toddler and publicly discussed family priorities, I have long considered Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to be fabulous (if famous) parents.

When their first daughter was born in 2005 I was thrilled to see that, unlike so many other stars, they named their little girl Violet Anne Affleck. Named after her grandmothers and not a favorite after-dinner snack, the preschooler is no doubt an outcast on the celebrity playground. In the real world, however, she'll do just fine.

I was happy to hear that Ben and Jen (version 2.0) welcomed another daughter last week. The name was made public today.

They bestowed upon their sweet, helpless, undoubtedly adorable daughter the name Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.
Please say the last three are her "official" names and that Affleck's publicist is playing a horrible joke on us. Seraphina? Really?

Ridiculous celebrity baby names have become such an epidemic that there is both a blog devoted full-time to the cause and an online name generator.

My dear friend Jennifer has always wanted to name her future celebrity spawn GrapeNuts, so she may be a bit disconcerted to hear that my future daughter's name, according to the generator, should be Granola Cranberry Smith. Beautiful Granola's twin brother Comet Khaki Smith will probably go by "CK" for short. Natch.

What is your generated name? Have any celebrity favorites?

(Bronx Mowgli Wentz, with his super-luxe initials and extra consonant-y "Bronx Wentz" nametag is a current fave. But Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale is also a top competitor. Perhaps Lunesta Ambien Cialis Zyrtec Jolie-Pitt is not too far behind?)

I still haven't gotten past Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow naming their daughter "Apple". Poor thing!

I think I am the only person that likes the new Affleck baby's name!

my children would be fif coriander and whisker glick according to the blog name maker.... I don't think so!

Jennifer said...

You stole my baby name! We are never speaking again. My name was so original and you had to go and take it.

Apparently Granola and CK will have a male cousin named Humvee Dark and the little girl will be Sugar Manhattan. That is great.

Sugar - how classy! I mean, I'll probably call my daughter "Sugar" just to be cute - why not put it on her birth certificate, right??
