New Celebrity Baby Name Alert: Amy Adams' Aviana

New Celebrity Baby Name Alert: Amy Adams' Aviana

Academy Award-nominated actress Amy Adams welcomed her first baby on Saturday, May 15, a girl named Aviana Olea Legallo.  Baby Aviana's dad is Amy Adams' fiance Darren Legallo.  This news comes via an exclusive in PEOPLE.

Aviana is a late Roman name, the feminine form of Avianus. But of course, as a baby name, that matters little. It's Ava + Ariana! (And just a sidestep from Viviana.)  It's rare but rising, ranking #1461 this year.

Thematically, we might see in Aviana an elaboration on the bird-name trend (e.g. Birdie Silverstein, Sparrow Madden.) As for Olea, it's a botanical genus that includes the olive. We wrote earlier that Olive is a hot name.

What do you think of Aviana Olea?

Let me be the first to say that Olea is bit too reminiscent of the fat substitute.

My daughter is 4 & 1/2 and one of her good friends is named Aviana... they call her "Avi" for short. I like it.. pretty & feminine, but shortend it can be sporty as well. Her sisters are Amareece and Sahara.

HA! Lane is spot-on. But buttery substitute aside, I think it's just a hairy mouthful of a name. Wasn't there an old Gilda Radner character named "Theresa Renteria"? That's what it makes me think of: A name that needs fake-Italian gestures to carry off.

I have to agree with Lane. The first thing I thought of when I heard the name Aviana Olea was a that it could be a brand of butter or something.

I usually like names that celebrities pick, as I like unique names. However, this one is just a little off for me.

Aviana is cute but trendy-sounding to me. The fat-substitute was my first thought as well with Olea.

I don't much care for Olea, but I can definitely see where Aviana will have some popularity. Nickname would be Avi, which is super cute for a little girl!
Personally, I won't be naming a future daughter Aviana, but I won't be surpirsed if my kids have peers names Aviana.

Meh...Aviana is too foofy and nouveau-princess for my taste. Olea is somewhat nicer.

Not really a name I would pick. However it is much better than some names given to babies. I agree with the previous post, the middle name is too reminiscent of Olestra. Not a fan of the name.

I am 14 weeks pregnant and do not know what I am having. If I end up having a girl, however, her name will definitely be Aviana Alysse. I love the name Aviana. It's so girly and cute! I do not like Olea, though.
