Isla Fisher's Baby Name Is Quite a Mouthful

sacha baron cohen and isla fisher

Sacha Baron Cohen's and Isla Fisher's baby name is out! Which is interesting because in the past the couple has kept such juicy details under wraps. Nonetheless, here it is. Their baby boy is named Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen. 

I, for one, love this name: It so powerful and weighty. Montgomery actually means "man power" and also hops on the trend of names derived from a place -- Montgomery, Normandy. Plus Montgomery Clift is an old Hollywood star, so it's got some old-school Tinseltown overtones too.

Only since the name is a mouthful, it can also be shortened to the very cute nickname: "Monty." So this name has a lot going for it!

I also love how the middle name, Brian, is a nod to Isla's same-named dad. And given this name is Gaelic for "strong one," it just adds further oomph.

Meanwhile, the middle name Moses pays homage to Sacha's Jewish roots, and is Hebrew for "drawn out of water." And according to the Bible, this is the man who parted the waters of the Red Sea ... so, all in all, this name is just overflowing with potent, powerful vibes. 

Montgomery will be joining two older sisters: Olive and Elula.

Congratulations to the couple!

What do you think of the name?

Not that big of a mouthful, I was expecting something super long and outlandish. Montgomery is alright I suppose. Not something I'd choose or endorse for a family member,just because I'm not too fond of Monty as a nickname. Just my opinion, to each their own!

Montgomery is great. Not a fan of the other 2.

The first thing I think of is Montgomery Burns, the rich old villain on the Simpsons. Second is Montgomery, Alabama and the bus boycott. Montgomery, Moses and Brian are all vastly different styles. That said, it's doesn't really bother me. There are so many celeb names out there that are truly terrible.
