Jack Osbourne's Baby Name Is a Real Gem

Awww! 36

jack osbourneDid you forget that Jack Osbourne and his fiance Lisa Stelly were expecting a baby? I did. Did you even know who Lisa Stelly was? I didn't. So, when I read that the couple gave birth to a healthy baby girl (weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds, 6 ounces!), I was all, "Oh. Cool." But then when I read what the couple named their baby girl, I was all "Ohhh. Coooool."

You'd expect the (former?) wild child/son of Ozzy Osbourne to give his daughter a super unusual, borderline ridiculous name, wouldn't you? I mean, the Osbournes aren't exactly known for being mainstream folk. But no. That's so not the case at all with Jack's baby. Jack and Lisa went old school. And it's majorly adorable.

They named their daughter Pearl. Pearl! Isn't that cute? And it's totally "on trend" with the whole old-timey baby name thing. I'm really fond of Pearl in particular, though, because it doesn't immediately invoke images of old ladies with blue hair, a la Esther and Beatrice (not that I don't like those names!). Pearl is sort of half throw-back, half bad-ass. And I'm a huge fan of one-syllable names. I really don't know why, it just seems to be that way.

So, congrats Jack and Lisa. Congrats on your healthy baby girl. And congrats on your super cute name -- which is bound to spark some inspiration in others.

Do you like the name Pearl? Are you a fan of "old timey" baby names?

Pearl is a pretty name and yes I'm a fan of "old timey" baby names.

No and no.

Since when is 8 lbs 6 oz whopping!  That is normal!  Anything between 6 and 9 lbs is totally normal!  They don't hit whopping until they are at least 9 1/2 may be even 10.  Now 11 lbs. that is whopping! And yes, I like the name Pearl. Whopping indeed!  Did you want the poor thing to be 5 lbs.  Good grief, totally normal sized baby.  Women who don't know a thing about normal should keep their mouths shut!

Pearl is beautiful! So glad they skipped the Jayden/Kaden/Brekdyn nonsense and chose a person name, not a "baby name."

Love old timey names- Pearl was my childhood nickname.

My daughter is Lois.

I love old time baby names. They are, for the most part, classy, sophisticated, and timeless. I plan on naming my own daughter Eleanor (Ellie for short). Some parents who give their kid borderline ridiculous names, or even fad names such as my own, do not think ahead and they don't realize that their kids will have to live with their name for the rest of their lives. I, for one, can't picture myself being 50, 60, or 70 years old with the name Brittany. It just seems juvenile to me. Giving your child a classy and timeless name will benefit them.

As far as "old timey" names go, I'm not necessarily a fan. Pearl, however, I can get on board with. Very cute!
