Name Sofia Coppola's Stealth Baby!

Name Sofia Coppola's Stealth Baby!

Tiffani Thiessan's Harper Renn isn't the only baby from our watch list who's recently arrived. Sofia Coppola, pictured here in March with her baby belly, was photographed this week sans bump, pushing a Bugaboo. The second child of Coppola and her husband Thomas Mars joins big sister Romy. No birth announcement has been made, which also means no name has been released for this celebrity stealth baby. Time to collect your best guesses.

What would you name a sibling to Romy? Take a look at this picture of Romy with her mom and the baby-in-the-Bugaboo, then come back here and tell us what you think. To complete this challenge, here are three things you need to know about Sofia Coppola:

1. Sofia Coppola has a thing for a certain kind of name. Romy is sweet but offbeat.  As we previously wrote about Romy, it makes us think of two things: first, the glamor-era movie actress Romy Schneider, and, second, with the kitschy-fun Mira Sorvino character of Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. Coppola's movies also straddle the line between glamor and kitsch, and it seems her names do, too.

What else can we notice about Romy? Two syllables and a long "o." The daughter in Coppola's new movie, Somewhere, is called Cleo. (You know, like the TV psychic and Pinocchio's goldfish.) Sweet, offbeat. Two syllables. Long "o." See a pattern? Which brings us to...

2. Sofia Coppola repeats herself. According to the web responses to the just-released trailer for Coppola's new film, Somewhere, it's Lost in Translation Redux. Watch the trailer to see. Further evidence for our theory that we should look for something akin to Romy?

3. Last name will be Mars. (You know, like the first name of Erykah Badu's daughter.)

To recap, that's sweet, offbeat, two-syllables, long "o," glamorous and kitschy. Oh, and we don't know if it's a boy or a girl.

How would you complete Sofia Coppola's sibset?

How about Cora? It's a lovely, underused name, one of my personal favorites. It doesn't have the long O, but it fits everything else.

Others, both boy and girl:
Omar
Odile
Olga
Neko or Nico
Mona
