Paula Garces, costar of the lifetime show Devious Maids as well as famous for her role on All My Children, welcomed a baby boy, Antonio Andres Hernandez, with her husband Antonio Hernandez on Wednesday, November 20th.  Baby Antonio joins big sister Skye (21 years old).

Garces, who is a celebrity blogger for PEOPLE magazine, commented on the process of deciding a baby name in her blog, saying, “Baby names are a big debate in my family, like true Colombian and Puerto Rican families, everybody and their mother is putting their two cents in — everything from Jose to Francisco to Victorio to Rain has been suggested.”  Given the family's strong connection to their families and heritage, it's not surprising that they chose a strong family name reflecting that heritage.

While naming a son after his father isn't an uncommon practice, it is interesting that Garces and Hernandez chose not to make little Antonio a Junior, presumably by giving him a different middle name than his father.  We at Name Candy love this choice, especially the alliteration between his first and middle names.  We can't wait to hear whether or not baby Antonio goes by his first name, his middle name Andres, or another nickname.

Are you surprised by Paula and Antonio's choice for their son?  What are your favorite nicknames for the name Antonio?
