Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole Have Given their Baby Boy an Unexpectedly Trendy Name
Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole may not have had a name ready when they welcomed their new baby boy into the world (hey, not everyone has Kristin Cavallari around to help), but now, a week later, they’ve apparently hopped onto the hottest new parenting fad by giving their little one an unexpectedly trendy name.
Despite being from the UK, first-time parents 23-year-old Payne and 33-year-old Cheryl are right in line with LA moms and dads by choosing a unique and unisex name with a similar vibe to Zen, River, or Story. People has confirmed that they’ve opted for Bear, and while it’s a bit different from what we’re used to, we actually really like it.

My close friends and family know there are very few times when I'm left speechless... wow! I'm incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it's a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I'm completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she's really made my dreams come true. We haven't named him yet but he's already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed. Happy Mother's Day everyone!

While not 100 percent unique — Chef Jamie Oliver named one of his kiddos Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver and Liam even tweeted to his son’s moniker-twin, Bear Grylls, after the adventure show host complimented the choice — it’s still somewhat unexpected and wildly cute.
We also can’t help but note that Bear Payne (sounds like bear pain, no?) is a pretty hardcore name for a little dude.
What do you think about the name Bear? Let us know @BritandCo!
