Robert Downey Jr Has a New Baby Boy! What Does His Name Mean?

By Sunny Chanel |

Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey

Robert Downey Jr and wife Susan Levin have welcomed a brand new baby boy into their family!

This is the second son for 46-year-old Robert Downey Jr. (his first son is 18-years-old) and the first for his 38-year-old wife Susan Levin. Their baby was born on Tuesday February 7th in Los Angeles coming into the world at 7lbs, 5 oz and twenty inches long.

What did the happy couple name their son and what does the name mean?

They named him Exton Elias Downey.

The name Exton is not a popular one, not even showing up in most baby name directories.  But one mentioned that it is:

Exton meaning: ‘King Richard The Second’ Sir Pierce of Exton.
Exton origin: Shakespearean

And Elias, that is far more common. Elias comes from Greek and Hebrew origins and means “the Lord is my God.”

What do you think of the name?

    I’m glad he didn’t give his child some satanic Illuminati name the way a lot of these freemason celebs have been doing lately. Richard means brave one and since Elias means The Lord is my God that’s awesome! Hopefully Robbie & his wife will get saved if they’re not! I’ll pray for them!
