Now that the news is official – Reese Witherspoon is pregnant! – we can start the gleeful round of bump-watching and speculation from now until the new little one is born.
Of course, we’re dying to know if she and husband Jim Toth will be having a boy or a girl, and what the little one’s name will be.
But we already have a hunch that Reese will go back to her roots when it comes to picking a moniker for little Baby Toth. She’s a Louisiana girl, remember, and loyalty to the Pelican State runs deep.
Her older two children’s names reflect her heritage. Deacon is not only a surname – it’s common for Southerners to give family names as first names or nicknames – it also reflects the strong faith of the region.
As for daughter Ava? That was the most popular name given to Louisiana baby girls in 2010, according to the Social Security Administration!
So we’re betting that Reese and Jim will keep the tradition going by choosing another of the names favored by Reese’s bayou brethren.
Here are the five most popular boys’ baby names (and girls’ names from second to sixth) in Louisiana. Which do you like?
