Jennifer Love Hewitt Names New Baby After Her First One

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt has given birth to her second child, and this one's a baby boy! Plus, she and husband Brian Hallisay have given him a smart, intellectual name: Atticus James.


Hey, wait a minute! Atticus's big sister is Autumn James. So it looks like the couple's into their kids having matching middle names, plus the same first initials.

So clearly Jennifer is going for some kind of theme with her kids' names ... so will any subsequent offspring follow suit with A-names followed by the middle name James, too? I guess only time will tell!

But regardless of the cute matchy matchy names, Atticus is a great name in its own right -- Latin by origin and long associated with intellect and learning.

The most famous bearer of this name is a literary reference to Atticus Finch, the noble lawyer who fights racism in To Kill a Mockingbird. But actor Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix also picked this name for their little boy, too.

Atticus also has cute nicknames, like Atti, Ace, Gus, or Kit.

All in all, we'd say this baby name has a lot going for it and is a smart choice. Congratulations to the couple!
