There’s never a shortage of unusual baby names in celeb-ville, so it’s always good when new celeb parents reveals why they chose their baby name.
Singer and first-time-dad Nick Lachey has revealed why he and wife Vanessa chose the name Camden John for their son, who was born just over a month ago.
“It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin. We thought Colin would be the name. And John is my dad’s name,” Nick told PEOPLE magazine.
“But as we got further into it, I learned that Vanessa wasn’t a big fan of the name Colin, so we started looking for another ‘C’ name,” he said.
Nick revealed that Vanessa’s obstetrician’s office was based on Camden Drive, so Nick suggested the unusual name for their son.
“We didn’t really know anyone else named Camden. It was such a neat name. We fell in love with it and decided on it five or six months ago,” he explained.
“At first you don’t know what to expect,” Nick said. “You get all that advice, but we’ve been blown away and happy about the fact that he’s been a good baby.”
“He’s got a great temperament. Every day is fun. It’s a new adventure and we’re loving every second of it.”
“I didn’t come in with any expectation other than it would be incredible. It’s a journey, a new surprise, a new experience,” Nick told E! News.
Nick and Vanessa’s bundle of joy is not the only Hollywood tot to be named Camden this year. Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari also plumped for the name for her first born – wonder if she and Vanessa had the same obstetrician?
