Ryan Reynolds Defends His Daughter’s ‘Unusual’ Name

Sure Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively may have given their daughter an interesting name when they chose James, but as far as celebrity baby names go, it’s pretty tame.

“In the spectrum of weird celebrity baby names, I don’t really feel like we’re breaking new ground here. I didn’t call her Summer Squash Meadowlark,” joked Reynolds when asked about the “unusual” name.

He continued, “I also thought of going with all the letters silent in her name and it’d just be pronounced [loud exhale] … I’m just giving dumb celebrities ideas.”

13-month-old James actually is named after Reynolds father, who died last October after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
