Every mum around the world want’s her child to have a special and meaningful name, but what do you do if you can’t actually spell it?


Actress Alyson Hannigan admitted she’s fallen into that name-choosing trap on the Ellen Degeneres show.

Talking about her youngest daughter Keeva, who she gave birth to in May, she revealed her name was not a traditional spelling.

“I can’t spell the actual Gaelic version [Caoimhe],” said Alyson, reports the Daily Mail.

“It looks like when you grab your Scrabble tiles and you go, “Oh that’s not a word”.’

Here at Babyexert HQ, we wonder if Keeva's name in Gaelic would be the equivalent of a triple word score?

But the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star did say that despite the hard spelling, the name has some stunning meanings behind it.

“It means just lovely, wonderful, beautiful, it’s like eight words but they’re all nice.”

The mum-of-two also let slip that motherhood has made her forgetful.

“You get really dumb when you have kids because the pregnancy brain thing,” Alyson added.

“And then you’re like “I haven’t slept in four years”.’
