Ellen Pompeo Goes to Kid Lit to Pick Kid's Name


ellen-pompeoWhen I heard the name of Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo’s new baby girl, I took a page from the Godfather and went for the mattresses. Well, a little to the left of the mattress, actually – the kid’s bookshelf.

Because Pompeo’s pick had a ring to it that was awfully familiar.

And then I found it – Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery (Ellen is married to Chris Ivery) does indeed share her name with a fruit bat created by Janell Cannon.

OK, forget the fruit bat part, it doesn’t exactly help the case I’m about to make: you don’t need a baby name book. Just stroll the children’s section of your local bookstore, and you’ll find a good one. Better yet, revisit your childhood faves.

It’s got a benefit all the Neveahs and Uniques don’t – when you’re looking to recharge their interest in reading, you’ll be able to pull out “their” book.

You may want to shy away from animals that shriek in the night.

What do you think of the Stella Luna pick? Better than Sparrow?
