Linda Cardellini's Double-Barreled Baby

In December, we wrote that Linda Cardellini had five names picked out for the baby girl she was expecting with boyfriend Steven Rodriguez.

Now we know what two of them were!  Leap Year baby Lilah-Rose was born February 29. Lilah is a super hit name at the moment, rising quickly since 2004 when it didn't even make the top 1000 to #331 last year. (the more familiar Lila is at #155). And Rose has become the de rigueur middle name for the celebrity set.  We have over 40 celebrity babies with the middle name Rose in our Celebrity Baby Names Database. (Compare that to 24 for Grace and 12 Ann/Anne). Musician Lisa Loeb has a similarly named daughter Lyla Rose and American Idol Contestant Michael Lynche just named his daughter Layla Rose

Of course, Lilah-Rose is not the same as Lilah Rose.  As our own Name Lady recently wrote in a column titled "Are There Rules for Double-Barreled Names?"

"You know those sentences that  show off grammar in a funny way? Like “Let’s eat Grandpa!” versus “Let’s eat, Grandpa!” Think of double-barrel names like that. Take a name like Mary Beth Anne Smith.  Is this a double barrel first name (Mary Beth) with a single middle name?  Or is it, instead, a single first name (Mary) followed by a double middle name? There’s no way to tell. But Mary-Beth Anne Smith makes the whole thing immediately clear."

The Name Lady also notes that some parents simply like the kicky look of the hyphen holding the whole name together.

What do you think of the name Lilah-Rose?  Do you think the hyphen makes the name feel more special?

Lilah-Rose is fine.
My daughter had a double first name, single middle name, but no hyphens or smushed names. It's not that hard to figure out, even on forms where under "first name" we put First Second. Under middle we put Middle. It's pretty self explanatory.

Microsoft has rehashed MCSA and MCSE affirmations! In spite of the fact that the short types of the two affirmation courses are same,
