It’s a baby boy for 42-year-old former Friends actor David Arquette and his 33-year-old lady, Christina McLarty.
The couple chose the name Charlie West for their little guy. Hm, Charlie West….reminds us of that other directionally named baby, you know, North West, doesn’t it? Maybe the two will be chums at some point.
Charlie will have an older half-sister in Coco, who is 9, the daughter of Dad’s previous marriage with Courteney Cox.
The more formal name Charles is German in origin, and stands for “free man.” It’s reminiscent of royalty, such as Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, and athlete greats, such as retired basketball legend Charles Barkley. But we’re actually talking Charlie here, which is the diminutive of Charles. So, we’re also cueing Charlie Chaplin, and, how could we not, Charlie Sheen (which, have to say it, is a tad bizarre considering it dredges up Arquette’s own born-to-be-wild party-guy past).
Well, for this Hollywood family, two C’s in a pod, isn’t that fun. And, if chosen names have anything to do with it, with all the amazing namesakes that went before this newborn fella, not to mention his genes, we’re expecting big things from Baby CW. Sending many warm wishes to this happy Hollywood family!
