New Baby and New Name Alert! Actor Eric Ladin Welcomes a Son

New Baby and New Name Alert! Actor Eric Ladin Welcomes a Son
Fame/Flynet

Actor Eric Ladin, best known for his many roles on cable dramas including AMC’s The Killing, as well as playing Betty’s brother on Madmen, shared his baby news via Twitter. Eric and wife Katy Hull Ladin, a stylist, welcomed their son a few days before Christmas. The little guy will be called Maxfield David Ladin.

The new baby is one of a few 2012 arrivals whose name begins with Max—Lindsay Sloane and Jessica Simpson each recently named a daughter Maxwell and the past few years have given us a half dozen boys with just Max as a first name. This is the first Maxfield in our database and we wondered if the choice of -field as the ending was a response to the (perhaps) new androgyny of Maxwell, or a way to "formalize" the one-syllabled name Max.

For parents who want to call a boy Max the name alone may not be enough, and they have plenty of options for a two syllable (or more) name:  LeBron James’s son was given the middle name Maximus, fans of Dancing With The Stars of course know Maksim, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s son Max’s full name is Maximillian.  The combined name/nickname Max is very common: add up all the Maxes, Maxxes, Maximos, Maxims, and Maxwells and suddenly you have a name that you’ll be hearing a lot of on playgrounds and in cafeterias, but the Ladin family’s choice of –field as an ending stands out a little.

There’s some fascinating history of adding a syllable to formalize a name or just make it sound more current (check out this excellent and illuminating Baby Name Wizard post on boys’ names endings). As far as adding the ending “-field” on to a name that feels a little short, it’s a first for us, but probably not unprecedented. After all "just add -n" has been a major boy’s name trend for a while now, and adding -ford or -is, or -ard have all had their moment in the sun. Perhaps the Ladin family is just a little ahead of the curve.

What do you think of the name Maxfield? Will -field become a new go-to name ending?

The only -field name I can think of is Garfield. Definitely an unusual choice.

My hearty wishes to actor Eric Ladin and his wife Katy Hull fro giving birth to a wonderful baby boy. The child’s name has caught my eye. I have been wondering that people have become so much creative in naming their children.Kaliman Seeds

This revolution, the information revoultion, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It's very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day. What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now?
