Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale gave birth to their first child together last Friday at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, naming him Kingston James McGregor Rossdale. Her rep said over the weekend: “Gwen’s doing great! She looks amazing and she’s doing real good.”

After other celebrities have gone with Zolten, Bluebell Madonna, and Shiloh, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale actually sounds like a really solid name. Although it’s a shame they didn’t keep up the tradition of celebrity baby naming and call him something like Hagar the Horrible.

    I wonder how many kids born in England today were named George Washington Abraham Lincoln Somethingorother.

  3. tarjamarja

    The name is fine. Let’s hope the addiction to bright red lipstick isn’t hereditary.

    #32 Well I’m an asshole, so It’s all good.

    Why are celebrities naming their babies STUPID things? It’s not origional or creative… it’s a name someone is STUCK with their whole life and that will DEFINE them…

    Giving someone a weird name does not make something they do, how they look, or who they are what people notice, it’s the stupid name and where you got it.

    Unless Brad Pitt named his son Arm… then it would just be cool.

    I think Gwen was about 47 months pregnant when she finally gave birth, and I want to see Gavin in a kilt, regimental, even.

  7. MystressJade

    Ari, I gotta tell ya. My hubby is 100% Scottish and I insisted he get the Prince Charley kilt outfit….all I can say is YUMMY!!! Worth every penny.

  8. Sunny

    I’m really happy for them both :-)

    I love Gwen Stefani though, haha.

    I find them both to be pretty down to Earth and willing to lend a helping hand in some situations.

    (Not going overboard and trying to save the world like Brad and Angelina.)

  9. Ari

    Mystress, does he go regimental? Because I could be SO happy climbing up underneath that kilt…

    God, I can’t wait for the Celtic festival around here. Men in kilts EVERYWHERE!

    Well, and bagpipes, but that’s what headphones are for.

    Kingston sounds like a dog name. There’s a famous race of puppies called Kingston Cavaliers.
    BTW, Suri means MOUSE in french.
    As for Shiloh, it could be literally translated as “pooping water” in french.
    I’m not even kidding.

  11. machsnell

    Is it just me, or does that name make you think a Law Firm?

  12. machsnell

    Of a Law Firm

  13. delicious_dysfunktion

    Amongst all these Zoltron-Madonna’s,Bluebell- Slurries and Shitload-Roxie Crimefighters this kid’s name is pretty refreshing.Pretentious,but refreshing.

    @37-

    You’re being sarcastic, right? She BLEACHES her hair blonde!! So (if you are being serious) Lil’ Kim cannot be black because she has blonde hair? Ugh, she IS such a Chola, that’s what I always call her, that or plain old fashioned WIGGER. Both are kinda accurate, really. And that red lipstick is so tired, she’s been wearing that shit for 10+ years, please find something new! I just want to kick her in the cunt for landing Gavin, he can do SO much better than her nasty, dried-up ass, he could have me!! Or any of you other (hotter) girls. What a sad, sad waste of a hot guy to go to her nasty skanky ass. It makes me want to cry.

  15. tsarinaamanda

    And about the name…well, LA DI FUCKING DAH, aren’t we pretentious? The kid is still going to be spoiled, obnoxious trash (if it takes after it’s mom) it’s like naming a crack baby “Sir Rembrandt Q. Einstein” or something. just fucking sad.

  16. Shelley Bonnechance

    Thank heaven for not just ONE normal name, but an entire SERIES of normal names.

    Will the parents of Suri and Shiloh please take note?

  17. iluvsmekitty

    I absolutely adore Gwen. I’m not sure if she actually did name her baby after a city in Jamaica, but I’m fairly sure that if she did it would be because she was so inspired from having been there during the Rock Steady recordings, something she often talks about in interviews, not because she was trying to be a wigger whore chola whatever everyone else is saying lol. And she wasn’t exactly lying when she called her music “ska” back in the day- because ska is the mixture of band instruments like trumpet and trombone with guitar. So, if you’ve ever listened to No Doubt’s first album, you’d say yea, that was ska. Also, her music interest has changed over the years, as any one’s can, but her unique style has persisted and that’s what makes her famous (including the red lipstick, which I personally think suits her). Also, Gavin Rossdale is British, so that might explain McGregor. He’s also extremely smokin’ hot and I would like him to impregnate my womb as well. Okay, thats all folks- peace.

  18. TweedleDee

    HAHAHA the city i live in is called Kingston!! Woot! Kingston Rocks!!

  19. marlo

    #65 – you have just named my first child. the name I had previously thought of – Sebastian Bach-man Turner Overdrive – has been pushed aside.

  20. herbiefrog

    you know what

    i dont see anyone

    saying

    ok

    what next?

    isnt that hte greatest thing ever @))

  21. Fa Cube Itches

    The kid needs an initial for his first name. I mean, “Kingston James McGregor Rossdale” is good, but “L. Kingston James McGregor Rossdale” is even better. He’d probably come out with a monocle, embossed business cards, monogrammed hankies, and Bill Gates calling for a loan.

    There should also probably be a “Throckmorton” in there somewhere.

  22. herbiefrog

    you know what…

    you are right

    el ron
    some sort of cheating bitch
    no hang on
    en ron

    oh yes

    feel all thay money flooating away

    did you think there wouldnt be payack?

  23. gogoboots

    It sounds kinda high and mighty doesn’t it? That boy will be as spoiled as Brandon Davis probably, huh?

  24. Pepe Roni

    reminds me of a lesson I learned the hard way – the only time it’s ok to spit in an Italian woman’s face is when her mustache is on fire

  25. PeteMcLochness

    Ha! Throckmorton

  26. what up, ya'll

    #34 — LMAO — I live in L.A. where you can’t throw a rock without hitting a chola.

    The eyebrow thing is most certainly true. I went to the L.A. County Fair (ghetto, I know), and my ex remarked that of all the cholas there, not one eyebrow amongst them. It’s all about the Wet & Wild black pencil, ya’ll.

    In regards to hair, they usually have that long, wavy, stiff crap. I call it ramen hair. It looks exactly like Top Ramen!

    They usually have some pretty inventive gang names as well: Bubbles, Spooky, Shorty, Lil’ chato, etc.

  27. Trixie

    I don’t understand Gwen’s desire to start performing with gangsta rappers. Talk about marketing yourself. Even Nelly Furtado has gone gangsta on us. Once you start wearing bikini tops and dancing with grown men with front grills on the teeth, you know you’ve sold out. I think the “scheduled c-sections” occur because it’s just one more thing they can control. God forbid, they wake up with real labor pains in the middle of the night, like the rest of us normal people. Also, these women starve themselves to remain skinny, so they probably couldn’t push the baby through their skeletons.

  28. large_sized_teen

    COME ON NOW…. She’s just taking the Jamaica-jocking a little too far.

  29. missmaiden

    I thought bleaching your hair was a no no when you were pregnant? Kingston’s gonna be riding the short bus, no?

  30. Trixie

    You can bleach your hair while pregnant. There is no scientific evidence to state otherwise. The women who choose NOT to color their hair are just being extra cautious.

  31. MystressJade

    59 Ari, men in kilts are quite titilating…my hubby goes regimental always. Strangers always ask or try to look underneath when he wears it.

    It’s dead sexy, though….

  32. I never did like Gwen Stefani she has no talent. Her baby is gonna have a nose that won’t quit.(big)

    Sir Kingston Rossdale, they’ll probably call him James.

  33. large_sized_teen

    She really has alot in common with Madonna. They both “borrow” from other, hipper cultures for record sales. Both pimp a whole new people (/”look”)on each album. Yet both settled down with white men, after all..
    But not Americans. Englishmen. They’re “different”.
    But still acceptable at home. Read ‘em!

  35. fukusan

    That’s exactly it, i think many American celebirties have a simillar hang up, I mean madge marrying an Englishman in a Scottish castle and adopting some sort of rediculous accent, ashamed to be an Itailian from old working class Detroit.

    Or that fucking cunt paltrow using Britishisms in place of the Americanisms she’s used all her life, yeah maybe the Brits have a hard time deciphering words like vacation and stroller, suddenly it’s a holiday and a pram. Don’t even get me started on the whole Antony Hopkins fiasco.

  36. Lola

    God forbid an Italian American choose a Scottish name!!! The horror and scandal of it all!!

    Since when is there a copyright on culture?? People have appropriated, assimilated, internalized and re-interpreted culture since the dawn of civilization. Culture is neither static nor self-contained. We all “borrow” and have been “borrowed”. Build a bridge and get over it.

    And for all the purists, Gwen’s mother is actually of Scottish descent and so is Gavin.

  37. frenchtoaststix

    Note to Gwen: The bleached blonde, red lipstick look is very yesterday and ages you. You’ve been sporting this look for HOW LONG now? You don’t need to look OLDER, sweetie.

    Kid’s name might as well be Kilty McTavish. Planning to bring him up in Europe, I hope? ’cause Kingston James McDoodle will have his ass kicked here.

    On the plus side, your hubby is hot. I would fuck him in a hot second. Or hot him in a fuck second. Whichever.

    what exactly do you find pretentious about it? do you even know what this word means???? probably not.
    there are MANY people in the world who have more than one middle name, myself included, and i find your statement offensive

  39. gavintiegirl

    Several points to share with you 5 year olds who have nothing nice to say about a fellow human being during a blessed time in her life:

    1. Kingston James McGregor Rossdale is a very fine name.
    2. McGregor is Gavin’s middle name.
    3. Gwen looks fabulous (some of you are probably bigger than her and not even close to being preggers. How sad!)
    4. Gwen is a sweet, talented performer and her husband is too.
    5. Sometimes children get two middle names because the parents want to include family names and they don’t want to leave one side out of the naming. It’s not pretentious its thoughtful.
    6. You should all grow up and stop being so cruel. Just say congrats and be done with it.
    -gavintiegirl (yes, I am still alive)Peace!
    P.S. Oh, and lastly, you are all just jealous that you are not living the fabulous life of GWEN STEFANI ROSSDALE wife to hottie Gavin Rossdale and mother to famous baby KJ Mac Rossdale. LOL

    O.K NOW WHO CARE’S ABOUT THAT THEY NAME THEIR KID? THEY ARE ONE OF THE WORLD’S HOTTEST COUPLE’S THEY CAN NAME THEIR CHILD WHATEVER THEY PLEASE!

  41. ericaok

    Gavin Rossdale’s middle name is McGregor. That’s where it comes from. I also seriously doubt “Kingston” is named after that place in Jamaica. Women are supposed to gain weight when pregnant. I guess you’re all anorexic. Last but not least, Gwen Stefani is in her mid thirties, she had this baby because she wanted one. Not to salvage her career, not because she had nothing better to do. You’re all judgemental. Too bad you’re ugly.

    I love Gavin Rossdale!!! And I absolutely adore Gwen Stefani!!! I am so happy for them both!! Their baby is absolutely gorgeous!! I’ve never seen such an adorable baby…much cuter than Shiloh. Not that Shiloh isn’t cute, but I would have thought being the fruit of Brangelina she would be as close to perfect as possible but I think baby Kingston IS perfect!!!! CONGRATS GWEN AND GAVIN ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL BABY!!!!!!!! Enjoy him, love him, spoil him all you want…who cares what others think! He will turn out just as sweet as his parents. <3
