Bobby Brown's Name for Newborn Daughter Sounds Like a Prayer for Bobbi Kristina

It's official: Alicia Etheredge and Bobby Brown have given their newborn daughter a name that sounds like a spiritual anthem during dark times. The girl's name is Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown.


Bodhi is actually the Buddhist concept of enlightenment -- a powerful and fitting commentary on all Bobby's been through with his 22-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, who remains in a coma after she was found unconscious in a bathtub back in January.

"Hard times are hard times," Bobby told the press. "I don't know what the hell I'm going through right now, but I'm giving it to God and letting him deal with it."

But Bobby isn't the first to turn to this Buddhist-inspired name for his kids. Last year, actors Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green named their son Bodhi; Carly Simon and James Taylor have a grandson with the same name. And for you Point Break fans out there, you may recall that Bodhi was also the name of that adrenaline-junkie surfer played by Patrick Swayze.

Here's to hoping this girl lives up to her name, and gives Bobby a little bit of peace.
