Rapper Ludacris Welcomes Baby With a Lilting Lyrical Name

ludacris and eudoxie

Rapper Ludacris and his wife Eudoxie have had a baby! It's their first, and it's a girl, and they've chosen a perfect name for her: Cadence Gaëlle Bridges.


Love the lyrical quality of the name! Considering daddy's job (his actual name is Christopher Brian Bridges, by the way), it seems fitting, doncha think?

Cadence is actually Latin for "rhythm" or "beat." And Cadence has shot up in popularity lately. January Jones played a character named Cadence in the movie American Wedding. It has also shown up in literature, playing the heroine of an Armistead Maupin novel Maybe the Moon.

And the middle name Gaëlle plays into another hot trend: French middle names for girls. It just adds another layer of the sophistication.

Congratulations to the couple -- for the baby and for a stellar name choice!
