New Celebrity Baby Alert: McGreggor Edward Roberts
First of all, Farmer McGregor is the farmer in Beatrix Potter's tale of Peter Rabbit (a subject we discussed at greater length in the birth announcement for Jodie Sweetin's daughter, Beatrix). Second of all, Ewan McGregor is the cute dad to adorably-named celebrity kids Clara, Esther and Jamiyan. (Cool coincidence alert: Ewan McGregor played Beatrix Potter's fiance in the Renee Zellweger flick Miss Potter.)
Finally, McGregor was a name singled out in 2005's Freakonomics as one of 20 "White Boy Names That Best Signify High Education Parents." (Finnegan, Beckett and Calder are three others.) The Freakonomics authors also included McGregor on their list of predictions for the top baby names of 2015. Love them or hate them, the Freakonomics guys are provocative. In fact, the name-related clip from their new movie did not get our Name Lady's seal of approval.
What do you think of McGreggor Edward?
