Matthew Tells Us How They Picked Vida's Name?


matthew-mcconaughey-camila-alves-baby-vidaSome people have a very difficult time picking out their baby’s name. For others, it’s as easy as pie. I guess it’s just one of those things.

Take Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey for example, they had no trouble picking out Vida’s name.

“It was the only name that we had for a girl even before [we had our son] Levi. We had many male names but we only had Vida. She came out and she gave us life so we named her Vida.”

Vida means life in both Portuguese and Spanish.

Vida has added so much to their family, but has yet to be any trouble. Matthew said, “They eat, they crap, they sleep and if they’re crying they need to do one of the three and they’re having trouble doing it. Real simple,”

Did you have trouble picking out your kid’s names?

We found it much easier to pick out boy’s names than girl’s. We didn’t have any trouble with the boys, but got stuck on the girls. We picked out one girl name and that was it, for both pregnancies. Thankfully we had boys, because I liked the boys names better than the girls.
