New Baby Alert: Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham Welcome Grace Margaret

New Baby Alert: Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham Welcome Grace Margaret
GHOST/Fame Pictures

Mark Wahlberg's family keeps growing. PEOPLE reports today that the actor and his wife, model Rhea Durham welcomed a baby girl Monday, January 11, 2010.  The new baby, named Grace Margaret, joins siblings Ella, Michael and Brendan.

None of these baby names are likely to raise an eyebrow.  The Wahlbergs have a clear neo-traditional baby naming style, most common to the Northeast United States.   That's not too surprising since dad hails from Massachussetts. (See NameMapper on BabyNameWizard.com for more on geographic naming trends).

What do you think of the name Grace Margaret?  Do you like netraditional names?  No word on whether the Wahlbergs will go for  baby number 5 after this, but f they did, what would your sibling name choices be to go with this set?

I love Margaret! Grace is nice too; I like it better as a first name than a middle.

I am a fan of Grace Margaret. It works better for me than Margaret Grace. There's a strong quality to the name, along with a fun feminine vibe.
