Actor Neal McDonough is a dad again! On March 31, 2014, he and wife Ruvé welcomed their fifth child, a son named James Hamilton McDonough.  Their youngest son James joins four other siblings: Morgan Patrick, Catherine Maggie, London Jane, and Clover Elizabeth.

NameCandy has written about the McDonoughs baby naming style before, declaring in 2011 that their naming style had evolved with the addition of London and then Clover after using more classic names for their first two children.  It appears the evolution has come full circle, however, with the addition of the definitely classic James. 

We at NameCandy are a bit surprised at the choice of James, especially since Clover was named in part for her birth order (being the fourth child, and the connection to the elusive four-leaf clover), especially since a name like Quentin would represent his birth order so well!  However, given that every child has at least one classic name in their full name (like Patrick, Jane, and Elizabeth), it's not entirely surprising that they would turn to such a great classic like James.

We're sure that the entire family is over the moon at baby James' arrival! We're not-so-secretly rooting for a sixth McDonough baby just to see what turn their naming style will take next!

What do you think of the sibling combination of Morgan, Catherine, London, Clover, and James?  Do you know any other sibling name groups that span across so many styles of names?
