How Do We Like Kate Hudson’s Baby’s Name?

Bingham Hawn Bellamy. That’s a good, strong name, isn’t it? I mean, it’s no Bear Blu or Harper Seven, but it’ll do. Plus, the loving parents, Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy, are planning on calling him “Bing” for short. And if that’s not the most adorable thing you’ve heard all day, well … I guess you must have heard about a kitten riding a friendly baby bear or something. And I’m jealous.

To add to the already adorable name, it turns out that it’s a family name. On both sides, even! Here’s Matthew’s explanatory Tweet:

“For those wondering, Bingham is my mum’s maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt’s dad. Family connections all round!”

It’s probably because of that summer when all I did was listen to “Starlight” and sip margaritas, but I think Matthew and Kate make a real cute couple. Anybody else?

  • I think Kate Hudson is a ruiner of men. Does everyone remember Owen Wilson? Yeeeahhh.
    Muse is my favorite band and if she effs up my lead singer I WILL HAVE TO BRING THE PAIN.

    That being said, I really like the baby name.

  • one cannot ruin men, they can only ruin themselves. that said, i hope she does ruin muse cos they suck harder than a poddy calf.

    re the name, meh. it’s a good nickname but as a first name? it’s their baby i guess but really? why not give him the middle name bingham and called him bing?

    does anyone remember that chandler’s surname in friends was bing?

  • Well, sometimes family names stop being used for a reason. Bingham. Bing. Bing, like the search engine. Bingbingbing, like a Vegas slot machine.

  • I really like the name. It has a nice sound to it, and I think it’s somewhat normal, while still being unique, for a celebrity child.
    A lot of Muse ‘fans’ have been making fun of it, but honestly? It’s Matthew Bellamy’s kid. What the hell did you expect?

    Also, I’ve always liked Bing Crosby, so I don’t see any problem with Bing as a nickname.
    People should get the fuck over it if they don’t like it, seeing as it doesn’t even have anything to do with them. If you don’t like the kids name, don’t name your fucking kid that.
