Eva Mendes & Ryan Gosling's Baby Name Sounds Like a Song

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes sure do make beautiful music together. They exude beauty -- Eva that mix of Sophia Loren and Cindy Crawford and Ryan in all his Gosling-ness. The fact they made a baby together makes my heart sing. And since their baby girl arrived a few weeks ago, we've been patiently waiting, wondering what that little bundle of love has been named. And we have finally learned. Her name sounds like a song.

It's beautiful. It's so Eva and so Ryan and so sweet. We can see it embroidered on white frilly pillows and imagine how cute it will look when the little sweetheart will first scribble her name.


Eva and Ryan have named their baby girl Esmeralda Amada. It's so very song-like and delicate. Esmeralda even has the same kind of feel as Eva Mendes -- say it together ... it's like music. Both Esmeralda and Eva start with "E," which is a sweet nod to mom, and Amada is also the name of a character Eva played in the movie We Own the Night and means lovable. She must have loved it then and saved it for when she became a mom. Now we can assume that Eva is one of those romantic types who had favorite names tucked away in her head until the time came. I can only guess that Ryan is like that, too.

According to Baby Name Wizard, Esmeralda is Spanish in origin and means "emerald," which gives it an even more romantic and beautiful quality. The gorgeous gypsy in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame is also named Esmeralda. It's so pretty. They could call her Esme for short -- also lovely.

It feels like the perfect name for their little girl. Well done, Eva and Ryan.
