Since Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively both have gender-neutral names, many believed that they named their first daughter "James" because of it.

Turns out, though, that they named their first daughter James after Ryan's dad. They also have a second child named Ines and a newborn baby who has yet to be named!

Kate Winslet's son's name is definitely unusual — and so is the story behind it.

Kate told The Ellen Show: "Bear's second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically," she said. "The house burned down and we survived, but we wanted something of the fire and so Blaze was the name that we came up with. Bear Blaze."
