Jessica Alba Reveals Her Unique Baby Name Picking Strategy

What’s in a name? Quite a bit, actually — especially if you’re Jessica Alba and Cash Warren. The couple, who are currently expecting their third child together, have their work cut out for them in that department, as the The Veil star recently admitted to Jimmy Fallon.

Having been through the name picking rigmarole two times already, you would think that choosing a moniker for her and Cash Warren’s third child would be a breeze, but as the 36-year-old revealed to the talk show host, that’s not the case — far from it, in fact.

For starters, there’s a few, erm, restrictions they need to work within. “So my husband’s name… is Cash. It is a real, like that’s his actual, real name on the birth certificate, so, our kids had to have unusual names that also are words, and for some reason we chose ‘H,’” she explained.

And that’s not all: “It has to be single or double syllable, has to be an ‘H,’ and it also has to be a word. And it can’t be too weird, because, ya know… like, a little unusual, but you know, what if they want to be a nurse?”

Huh. With Honor and Haven already off the table, we can see why the actress is struggling! Even Fallon had a hard time, offering up suggestions like Hermit, Hail, and Heart.

TBH, we’re at a loss for suggestions ourselves: Happy? Holly? Hatchet? Hmmmm. We’re gonna have to think on this one…
