Reese Witherspoon Is the Queen of Awesome Baby Names

Awww! 11

reese witherspoonCongratulations, Reese Witherspoon! The 36-year-old actress welcomed baby #3 earlier today (her first child with husband Jim Toth), and ... it's a boy! Woo-hoo! If big siblings Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8 (dad is actor Ryan Phillippe), are any indication, the new addition is going to be one heck of a handsome kid. With a name to match!

That's right, Witherspoon and Toth actually managed to accomplish what so many other celebs seem incapable of doing -- they picked an awesome baby name! Timeless, charming, unique ... color me impressed!

Oh, hey, did YOU maybe want to know what Reese Witherspoon named her baby boy? Drumroll, please ...

Okay, ready? Here goes: Tennessee James.

Don't you just love it?! I mean, I kind of figured Witherspoon would name her new baby something cool based on her track record in this area -- Ava and Deacon are pretty much flawless choices. But Tennessee James exceeds even my high expectations. It's got character and depth and meaning, giving a graceful nod to both Witherspoon's Southern roots and her career in the dramatic arts (Tennessee Williams, anyone?).

Plus, I just can't wait to hear Witherspoon talking about Tennessee with that perky little accent! How cute is that gonna be?!

Do you like the name Reese Witherspoon chose for her new baby?
