Savannah Guthrie's Baby Name Is a Perfect Mix of Both Parents

savannah guthrie pregnantThe TODAY show family has officially grown by one! Savannah Guthrie gave birth early in the morning yesterday and, along with husband Mike Feldman, is now the parent to a little baby girl named Vale Guthrie Feldman!

The proud mama even shared a pic of her new "alarm clock," and it looks like she'll be more than happy to get that 3 a.m. wake-up call now.


How cay-oote

As for the name? It's definitely different. Vale means "lush garden valley," and according to the data from Baby Name Wizard, it's never ranked in the top 1,000 baby names in America.

Talk about unique! Chances are Savannah won't run into many more like-named kiddos on the playground. It's not easy to find a name so lovely and yet so under-used.

But the best part of it all is that Savannah's name has been passed on to her daughter. So often, we see that the mother's maiden name is lost in the baby naming process. Not this time! Guthrie is the little lady's middle name, so both mom and dad have their names included.

Maybe it's becoming a new trend, too. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are reportedly naming their daughter Finn, after Ashton's mother's maiden name, Finnegan.

So fear not, ladies! If you do choose to give your baby the father's last name, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate yours.

What do you think of the name the couple chose for their daughter?
