Name the Next Beckham Baby
So Posh and Becks are expecting a new member of their team this summer. They’ve been both imaginative and trendsetting when choosing the names for their three boys: Brooklyn Joseph, Cruz David and Romeo James. Due in some part to their influence, Cruz is now Number 346, Romeo is Number 411, and Brooklyn is 37—but for girls!
Will they again use some reference to place, as they did with Brooklyn (chosen–no–not because that was where he was conceived but where Victoria was when she found out she was pregnant) and Cruz (a Spanish name chosen when Beckham was playing for Real Madrid)? Doesn’t seem too likely with them now living primarily in Beverly Hills.
One pattern they’re likely to continue is using a classic male name in the middle.
But wait–to quote a line from the musical Carousel–what if he is a she?
Any great suggestions for them for either or both sexes?

I think they will have a girl named Portia, a play-on Posh.

I’ve said it before – I don’t think David and Victoria have chosen too, too strange of names. Yes, they are unique in terms of Hollywood baby names, but they aren’t Apple or Satchel or anything. So, here are my choices:
BOY – Westley Robert
Westley draws on Victoria’s mother’s maiden name, West, has a unique end sound from Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, is a place name (Westley in California and Great Britain – how perfect!), and is a character name like Romeo.
Robert is one of David Beckham’s two middle names, in addition to being an established classic like Joseph (Brooklyn Joseph), James (Romeo James), and David (Cruz David).
GIRL – Dahlia Caroline
I think nature names are pretty much uncharted territory for the Beckhams, and I’d say having a girl would present with a prime time to use one! I’d go for something a little less common, but still familiar, like Dahlia. Dahlia is striking and romantic and long, like Victoria. It also shares the same -ia ending as Victoria, which is nice! When you’ve got a big brother named Brooklyn, which could easily be a girl’s name, I think a little sister needs a very feminine name, like Dahlia.
Caroline is Victoria’s middle name, and it seems like a natural choice for a first girl, considering Joseph – one of David’s middle names – was used for the first boy, Brooklyn.

I like the name Miles Beckham for a boy. If baby is a girl, I would love to see a spice name to honor Victoria’s past as a Spice Girl. There are several great spice names: Saffron, Cayenne, Caraway, Coriander, Sage, Myhrr, Cinnamon, for example.
I’m not sure the Beckhams are open to suggestions, though <;-O
on January 19th, 2011 at 3:56 pm
I think Vaughn for a boy. Maybe Giselle, Lilah, Beatrix, or Kate for a girl.
on January 19th, 2011 at 4:25 pm
I think London for a girl and maybe Orlando or Dashiel for a boy!
on January 19th, 2011 at 4:31 pm
I think the perfect names are: Lennox Alexander or Daphne Elizabeth.
on January 19th, 2011 at 4:35 pm
I haven’t a clue, but for a girl I think it will be hyper feminine because Victoria has been waiting so long for a girl. I could honestly see another name similar to Seraphina a la the Affleck family. maybe Evangelina or Isabella or even Carolina as a pp said Victorias mn is Caroline.
on January 19th, 2011 at 6:40 pm
My guesses are
Boy: Kai Edward
Girl: Talullah Victoria
on January 19th, 2011 at 7:34 pm
Okay, my guesses:
Primrose Victoria if it’s a girl
Malachi Robert for a boy

Hasn’t Posh stated before that she wanted a daughter named Luna? Love the name West. It works!
on January 20th, 2011 at 2:16 pm
I didn’t know that Posh had mentioned the name Luna as a preference. I like it!

[…] those who love Extreme Celeb Baby Naming, don’t lose hope. The Beckhams are expecting, and with guesses at the new baby’s name ranging from Vaughn and Arcadio to Primrose […]
on January 26th, 2011 at 6:12 pm
I read somewhere if its a girl they are calling it Vida…. (Spanish for “Life”) and the first two initials of both of their names 🙂
on January 26th, 2011 at 10:43 pm
I dont see them using a name another celebs kids name, but I see them going super crazy either.
If they do chose a spanish name, I doubt it will be Valentina or Valentino.
I would hope maybe an homage to other legendary singers. Something like Jagger, Freddie (I realize it isnt all that out there, but since the recent rash of crazy names, it might just be normal enough to be crazy), Elvis, Van. Or maybe a strong name, Rock, Steel(e).
As for a girl, I would love is Posh and Becks looked into their past family for inspiration. Or they could just name the baby Posh (middle name) Beckham. Or Rebecca (call her becks) (middle name) Beckham.

Victoria was appearantly told at her 18week scan that she’s having a girl.
I think she would pick a real girlie name after 3 boys but it won’t be Kate or Katie because of Katie Price.
I’d say she probably would have called her Princess if Katie Price didn’t have that name for her daughter. And I doubt she would pick a name that another celebrity has like Tallulah or Scarlett.
I wonder will she pick something unusual in line with the boy or go for a more traditional girls name like her own? Hmmm…

But Luna Beckham sounds about right.
on June 27th, 2011 at 8:04 am
Alexis Wayne Beckham!!!! Just incase reports are wrong?
on June 28th, 2011 at 7:08 pm
Liberty Jacqueline as baby is scheduled for c section on Independence Day and the middle name after her mother.
on July 1st, 2011 at 12:27 pm
Liberty but I reckon Catherine/Kate will be in the name somewhere ( to honour the godparents). Maybe twins as Victoria is a dark horse.
