Why Did Drew Barrymore Choose the Name Olive for Her Daughter?

Drew Barrymore Talks About Naming Her Daughter Olive

Synonymous with martinis and hors d’oeuvres, many wondered why Drew Barrymore chose the somewhat unusual name Olive for her newborn daughter who was born in September.

The actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and revealed that she and her hubby, Will Kopelman, got the idea during a sentimental moment.

“I never would have guessed that would have been the name. But I was reading a book with my husband, and I was three months pregnant. They said your baby is the size of an Olive and that was it,” she told DeGeneres. “We never looked back.”

The talks show host later quipped that she and Will could easily have named their offspring a myriad of small edible things.

“It could have been. It was a lot of fruits and vegetables,” she said. “Kidney’s not such a fun name.”
