Imagine the pressure.Â Not only do you have the neighbors and grandparents and colleagues saying, â€śCongratulations!Â Whatâ€™s his name?â€ť but then thereâ€™s People Magazine and US Weekly and probably your publicist, too.
Given all the talk of baby name regret that weâ€™ve heard over the last few weeks, maybe waiting to decide isnâ€™t such a bad idea.Â James Van Der Beek and wife Kimberly also welcomed a son last week, a little brother for Olivia.Â So far Baby Van Der Beek is also nameless â€“ or at least, the proud parents arenâ€™t sharing.
All babies do get names eventually, of course, and a few of the names in the news this week are the very opposite of the Sisto/Van Der Beek situation.Â It looks like Jessica Simpsonâ€™s choice is now public knowledge, and Jersey Shoreâ€™s Snooki has shared her shortlist for a baby boy.Â But if the reality star has a daughter, she could be in the same boat as Sisto â€“ in an MTV special, she said she had no ideas for a girlâ€™s name.
