alicia keysIt's the holiday gift that tops all holiday gifts! Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz had one joyous Christmas weekend because the couple welcomed their second son: Genesis Ali.

He joins 4-year-old big brother Egypt Daoud and siblings Nicole, Prince Nasir, and Kasseem from Swizz's previous relationships, which makes the name all the more surprising.

Though it's generally been used as a girls' name (think actress Genesis Rodriguez), Genesis has also mostly been reserved for firstborns. Genesis is the first book in the Bible and is associated with the start or the beginning, making it ideal for the first new member of the family.

But kudos to Keys for bucking both traditions. Who says it can't be a boy name and perfect for baby number two? All's fair in love and baby names.
