Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher's Baby Name Could Be a Sweet Nod to Grandma​

mila kunis and ashton kutcherSo far, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have managed to keep pretty tight-lipped about what they'll be naming their baby girl, but it looks like their secret has finally been released, at least according to some unnamed "sources." Rumors are that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' baby name is inspired by their own family tree, and their baby daughter will be named Finn.

What makes this one even more special is that Finnegan is Ashton's mother's maiden name. What a sweet nod to grandma!


Though it's traditionally a baby boy name, Finn (it was the 230th most popular name for boys in the United States in 2013) has actually started picking up ground as a moniker for a little lady. It means "white and fair," so it's perfect for a tiny and delicate babe.

Plus, let's not lose the most important part of all of this: the connection to Ashton's mom. Ashton and Mila are definitely not the first to look to the family for baby name ideas. Some have chosen names inspired by other family members directly, others have continued the lineage with a Jr., or some have even incorporated a relative's name into the child's middle name.

But the maiden name idea? It's something different and it's genius.

So often, maiden names are lost in the family tree, especially since most parents choose to take on the father's or husband's name as the official last name in the family. But not this time around. If the rumors are true (and we hope they are because OMG, cute!), then the Finnegan name will live on in the Kunis-Kutcher household.

We're sure grandma would be absolutely thrilled.

Would you ever use a maiden name as a baby name?
