Drew Barrymore Picks the Coolest Name for Her Baby Girl

Awww! 35

drew barrymoreDrew Barrymore is a mommy now! After what must have been the most laid-back pregnancy in Hollywood, the actress gave birth to a baby girl in Los Angeles last week. 

"We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter ..." the blissed Barrymore and hubby Will Kopelman said in a statement to Us Weekly, "... [b]orn September 26th, healthy, happy, and welcomed by the whole family."

In the grand tradition of Hollywood moms naming their kids after foods, the star followed suit.

Drumroll please! The newest celeb baby is ... Olive! Cute, isn't it. The little bundle is certainly in good company. We ooohh'd and aaaww'd when Gwyneth Paltrow introduced us to Apple and Courteney Cox revealed Coco.

Barrymore is certainly over-the-moon. Sources say it's something she's wanted for a very long time. Once a famous wild child, the Grey Gardens actress is "ready to settle down and be a mom," an insider told Us months before the baby's arrival. Indeed she has.

She wed Kopelman on June 2 at her Montecito, California estate and has been in baby prep mode since. And it doesn't look like the pair will stop at Olive. "We'll start with one," she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. "See how it goes and if we could be so blessed ... that would be wonderful."

What do you think of the name that Drew Barrymore chose?

I like Coco and Olive. Apple sucks for a name of a person

Not a fan of it. I like Olivia better. I'd no more name my daughter Olive than I would Pickle.

Olive is beautiful name. It has a long history of use and it is ready for revival.

Anyone who thinks Olive is the same as pickle or apple obviously knows nothing of the etymology of names.

Olive was the original feminine form of Oliver before Olivia became popular.
