No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal and his longtime girlfriend, actress Erin Lokitz welcomed a new daughter, Saffron Rose Kiran Kanal on November 22, 2013, according to PEOPLE magazine. Baby Saffron joins big sister Coco Reese Lakshmi Kanal, who was born in January 2011.

Saffron is one of the least common baby names that originated as a plant name.  While names like Violet, Lily, Jasmine, Hazel, Willow, and even Sage are routinely heard among little girls on the playground these days, Saffron is a fresh choice, and one that has never ranked in the top 1,000 girls names.

Beyond Saffron's unique standing among plant-based names, she also joins other children of No Doubt bandmates who all have unique names, including Gwen Stefani's two boys, Kingston and Zuma. She'll be in good company with Magnolia, daughter of drummer Adrian Young. Young also has a son named Mason.  Guitarist Tom Dumont also has three sons, Koa, Rio, and Ace.  With another arrival on the way for lead singer Gwen Stefani, No Doubt is sure to continue inspiring people with not only their music, but their stylish baby naming habits.
