The US Social Security Administration is expected to release their annual list of the most popular baby names at the end of the week, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are expecting their first child together. These two have been in the limelight since they were kids, yet they strike me as down-to-earth. I could see them using something a bit unique with laid-back ease. Nothing that’s over-the-top or trying too hard.
