8 Baby Names Jessica Biel + JT Should Definitely Avoid

Is it just us or does it seem like 2015 is quickly turning into the year of celebrity babies? Blake Lively gave birth to a baby girl just before the New Year rang in, then we were hit with news that Miss Zooey Deschanel is expecting and now Jessica Biel is also jumping on the maternity train. Allegedly. News that she was pregnant broke a few weeks ago after JT’s former bandmate, Joey Fatone spilled the beans. And now the rumor mill is freshly abuzz with stipulation that the couple is expecting a girl.


We have yet to hear directly from the celebs as to whether the breaking baby news is 100% true or not (although c’mon, we’re working with like 50/50 odds here), that hasn’t stopped us from brainstorming some names they should not go for, but rather totally steer clear of:

1. Mary Camden Timberlake: While Mary is definitely a classic choice, it’d probably be best to stray away from the name of Biel’s breakout role on the hit TV drama, 7th Heaven.

2. Britney: Because you know, that would just be plain awkward.

3. Sophie, Emma or Olivia: We’re loving these names but the hard truth is that so is everyone else. Sophie, Emma and Olivia are listed as the most popular baby names of 2014, so to avoid making your little girl the “John Smith” of 2030 we say go for something a little more unique.

4. Joey: While we’re all for using this as a girl’s name (ahem, Dawson’s Creek anyone?), considering it was Justin’s NYSNC bro, Joey Fatone that preemptively leaked the baby news, we’re going to say he has to have naming potential revoked.

6. Erin: Since Biel’s character, named Erin Hardesty in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, endures some pretty traumatic experiences, we’re going to say something with a bit of an uplifting vibe would be a better pick.

5. Ella, Bethany or Eleanor: Considering these made the top three for the naughtiest baby names of 2014, it might be best avoid some temper tantrums and steer clear of these.

7. AJ: Or any other name that will remind JT of the boy band wars of 1998…

What baby name do you hope the couple goes with for their first child? Let’s brainstorm in the comments below!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
