Name Forecast: Gisele and Tom Brady have a baby on the way, so it's time to talk names!

Name Forecast: Gisele and Tom Brady have a baby on the way, so it's time to talk names!

The rumors are true and that bump is for real: Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady are having a baby.  On May 29 we first alerted you that a baby might be on the way, and on June 19 sources told People Gisele is expecting.  This little girl or boy will have quite the power parents -- Gisele is the highest paid model in the world, making #16 on the Forbes list of the 20 richest women in the entertainment industry, and Tom is the beloved supestar quarterback for the New England Patriots, with 3 out of 4 Superbowl wins and 2 Superbowl MVP awards.

Might they look to their respective careers for name inspiration?  Tom grew up in California going to 49ers game, so maybe he'll want to honor his idol, Joe Montana.  Or other Patriots could turn out to be his baby's namesake: Sam Aiken, Chris Baker, Tully Banta-Cain, Darius Butler, Tedy Bruschi.

Football isn't exactly full of girls' names, so Tom and Gisele could look at some of the stars of Gisele's profession: Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Tyra Banks, or if should turn out to be a boy, don't forget Tyson Beckford.

Perhaps they'll decide to go a personal rather than professional route.  Gisele's got a family full of great names: her mother Vânia, father Valdir, and her five sisters -- Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Rafaela, and Patrícia (Gisele's fraternal twin).  

Tom already has one son, John Edward Thomas Moynahan, with former girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.   Mother and father are both represented in this baby's name -- Bridget's surname, and Edward and Thomas are Tom's middle and first names respectively.  Soon John Edward will be getting a little sister or brother, and though it will be Gisele's first delivery, this bun-in-the-oven will not be her first child in spirit.  Talking to Vanity Fair about John, Gisele said: "I want him to have a great relationship with his mom, because that's important, but I love him the same way as if he were mine.  I already feel like he's my son, from the first day."

People reports that Gisele's due date is early next year -- meaning plenty of time to make that name list and check it twice.  Any suggestions for Tom and Gisele?
