While appearing on “The Talk” this week, the 39-year-old actress revealed how she and her beau, J.J. Feild, decided on the name Caspian for their son, who was born in August. “We looked through a lot of books,” said the “An Amish Murder” actress. “I liked the idea of a unique name. I like having a unique name – it’s [my mom's] maiden name, Neve, and not a lot of people have it. It’s nice having something special and different and so I wanted something like that for our son.”

Going into the delivery room, the “Party of Five” alum and Feild had narrowed down their options to just five names and decided they would wait to meet their son before they made anything official. When they first set eyes on their bundle of joy, the decision was made for them. “When we were in the hospital when he was born, we realized we could only remember one [of the names from the list] and that was Caspian,” said Campbell.

Beyond names, Campbell also chatted with “The Talk” co-hosts about spending her first holiday season as a new mother. “Christmas with kids is so much more fun than on your own,” Campbell gushed. She can’t wait to pass down her own family traditions to her tot – and she’s already creating some of her own, including dressing her baby in silly holiday outfits. “I went on Amazon and bought one of those little Santa outfits for him for Christmas,” she laughed, adding, “I’m sure he’ll be mortified when he’s older.”
Maybe he will be mortified, but he’ll probably know he was loved as well.
