Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso Expecting Another Girl
Yesterday Matt Damon announced that he and his wife Luciana Barroso, who is eight months pregnant, are expecting another girl. The couple already have two daughters together, four-year-old Isabella and litttle two-year-old Gia. They also have Barroso's eleven-year-old daughter, Alexia, from a previous relationship.
The news got us thinking about what names Damon and Barroso might be considering. They already have an Isabella, which was #1 on the girls' charts in 2009 and continues to be trendy in pop culture (Twilight) as well as among celebrities (Drew Lachey and musician/reality tv star Josh Gracin have both named their daughters Isabella in recent years). And Gia should sound especially familiar as just last month we reported the birth of Mario Lopez's newborn Gia Francesca.
It seems likely the couple will stick with their favorite, names that end in "A." Maybe they'll be influenced by some of the fastest rising girls' names like Martina, Ursula and Briella. Or perhaps they'll take a cue from mama Luciana and choose a Frilliana name such as Eliana (Christian Slater's daughter), Aviana (Amy Adams' daugther) or Viviana.
We also wouldn't be surprised if they chose another one of those names that are both traditional and popular: Olivia, Emma and Sophia come to mind. Then again they might go a less common route with a name like Amara or Clarissa.
What do you think Matt Damon will name his new baby girl? If you were him, what name would you choose?
