James Van Der Beek's Baby Girl Needs A Name

James Van Der Beek and Kimberly Brook are expecting a baby girl -- and, Vander Der Beek tells PEOPLE they are in need of naming help.  He says: "We are thinking and taking suggestions for names, but we have no idea [what to call her] right now."

Let's help him out.  Should he draw on his Dawson's Creek past for naming inspiration?  Or call former co-star Katie Holmes for suggestions, the actress who famously named her daughter with Tom Cruise Suri?

What would pair nicely with the parental names James and Kimberly, and, most likely, the last name Van Der Beek?

I think Dawsen(girl sp?) Van Der Beek sounds really good!

I just realized that Suri spelled backwards is a misspell of Iris. So maybe a popular flower name spelled backwards would be an inspiration.

Or maybe a smashup:
James + Kimberly
Jake; Mikyla
Sember or Amber
Skyla; Riesa
Lymae; Myla

Riesa would be well funny. That's a town I grew up in, Eastern Germany.

I'd prefer Theresa, it still got the "eesa"-sound. Or maybe one of the gazillion Bella-variations that are currently flooding through the baby name-universe.

No offense here, but that is so cheesy.
