When actor Rob Morrow named his daughter Tu (tomorrow, get it?), he raised the bar on silly celebrity baby names. Why name your child after a fruit, like Apple Martin (though mom, Gwyneth Paltrow, may have had appletinis in mind) when you can turn your mini-me into a Scrabble word or "Wheel of Fortune" phrase?
Although they have not asked for help in naming their budding bambinos, we think more celebs should follow Morrow's lead. Here are some irresistible ideas for the new crop of celeb hatchlings:
Lindsay Price: If the unmarried "Lipstick Jungle" star uses her own surname for her new cub, we like the names Half or Full. ("Have you met my son? He's Half Price.") Rolling is our pick if Price marries baby daddy Curtis Stone.
Crib notes: Price and her celebrity chef boyfriend have been dating for two years. The baby will be the first child for both. Stone is sure to be the fun parent, based on his televised stupid human trick of keeping a blueberry hovering over his face.
Jessica Alba: Alba and husband Cash Warren named their first baby Honor Marie Warren. We're thinking the couple should make a plug for world peace this next time around by naming their second baby Nomore.
Crib notes: Alba and Warren's second child is due late this summer. Three-year-old Honor recently squealed to the paparazzi that she is getting a little sister named Eva, but mommy and daddy have not confirmed her leak.
January Jones: The icy "Mad Men" mom could name her baby Ing, which will make more sense on DMV and IRS forms that require last name first.
Crib notes: Jones is keeping mum on the gender of her baby although one photographer caught her buying a blue onesie at Target. An even bigger mystery is who the baby's father is, with rumors swirling that Jones is keeping his identity a secret because he is married. Can we rule out Arnold Schwarzenegger?
Tori Spelling: Traditional Tori let her first two kids take dad Dean McDermott's last name, but this time it should be Tori's turn. We like Badd and Miss for Spelling baby names.
Crib notes: Spelling and McDermott are taking pot luck with their new baby. They are part of a retro trend of couples who want to be surprised if they're having a boy or girl until after the baby is born. With son Liam, 4, and daughter Stella, 2, there will be hand-me-downs either way. As if.
