Jennifer Garner Baby Name: When, Ben and Jen?

We empathize, Jen and Ben. As the Jennifer Garner Baby Name Watch enters Day Four Five Six Eight, we imagine you might be having a tough time settling on a name. It took us a long time to name our babies too.

First time around, we weren’t sure of the sex, so we couldn’t very well pick a name before the baby was born. And then, even when we had advance knowledge about gender, we wanted to see what the baby looked like before we made the final name decision.

And then, well, we just couldn’t decide. With so many great names out there, it can be really difficult to choose just one. And since you did such a great job naming Violet, you obviously have high standards to live up to.

We have a suggestion that might help. Check out all the great names people guessed you might name your new daughter. Phoebe? Frances? Clementine? Ivy? There are literally hundreds of awesome ideas in the comments section of the blog post below, in case you’re stuck.

Over 40 percent of the 1500 1800 1900 people who voted in the Jennifer Garner Baby Name poll guessed you would pick a Gently Old-Fashioned Name like Beatrice (another good choice), with another 35 percent opting for a sweet name like Grace. Color names such as Ruby or Scarlett: not so much.

Of course, you may have already decided on a name and are just keeping it to yourselves for now.  We understand (even though it’s driving us a little crazy).  We only hope you don’t decide to keep the name a secret for basically ever, the way Holly Hunter did with the names of her now-three-year-old twins.

For those of you reading this post who AREN‘T Ben and Jen, there’s still time to vote in our poll below and guess the Jennifer Garner baby name for a chance to win an advance copy of our new book, Cool Irish Names for Babies.

I voted for “a week, a month, a year”. For me, it seems difficult to give someone a name without knowing their personality. It took me weeks to name my pets. I wish that it was more culturally acceptable to name our children when they are old enough to exhibit their true nature. Maybe it takes a while? Months? Does much of this come across when the baby is just born? Maybe, I don’t know. I haven’t had a baby yet. I respect others opinions on this.

Jason Lee still hasn’t announced the name of his daughter, either. There’s something I’d really want to know, what Pilot Inspektor’s sister’s name is.

I really, really want to know what Jen & Ben name their daughter.

Violet Anne is so gorgeous, they have great taste!

One reason celebrities w/hold names is so they can have their lawyers snap up all the internet domain/website names that people might come up with in order to try and get the celeb to then buy the site from them. I heard about this happening with Suri Cruise too….

That’s a very interesting point, K. I bet you’re right. Still, it seems that could be taken care of in an hour, or even before the baby is born. I can’t believe the name hasn’t been leaked out by now.
