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

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?
