Well She Could Be I. Driver (That's What She Said)


Passing up what could possibly be the naming opportunity of the century, Minne Driver has chosen the name of her kid in advance. If it is a boy, his name will be Thomas, and if it is a girl, Isabella.

While I would never suggest names that are clearly outrageous, like Pile or Drunk, I think the last time this subject was broached, all of the comments from you readers were constructive and she could have gone with something traditional, but still fun like Screw. I mean there must be thousands of kids every year who are named Screw, but how many of them get to be a tool AND a delicious adult beverage all with one name.

My guess is though that Nicole and Keith stole her thunder when they took Sunday. I mean Sunday works well for male or female. She has said her favorite group is The Sunday's and still Sunday Driver is just funny enough where everyone can get a laugh, but not so dumb where the kid is getting his ass kicked everyday.

Now though, the kid has no chance to do anything fun with the name and I think that is an opportunity lost.

I'm glad she didn't go all pretentious.

There's always the middle name. T. Off Driver. I. Neda Driver.

Sunday Driver would've been awesome and horrible at the same time. :)

Thank God someone hasn't gone the jacked up name route. How refreshing!

She could have named the kid "Shitty"

IDK... isn't matt damon's daughter named isabella/e? i don't think i could use the same name as my ex... even if we both liked it when we were together, it feels a bit weird

Awww really? Sundays are my favorite band too.

I hope her and the baby are doing well.

Did we ever find out who the father is?

Uh, am I the only one who thinks that when you grow up as "Minnie," you're sensitive to the stupid names thing?

Aw, I was partial to making fun of the wacky-names trend by naming the kid Crazy. A crazy driver with a crazy name. Just me? Yes? Okay, then.

I am bad for this but I almost hope her kid ends up being one of those terrible celeb kids who always gets into trouble so I can refer to him/her as the bad Driver. And goodness forbid the kid ends up getting a DUI, you know exactly what the tab headlines will be for that one.

I don't think Minnie or Matt would mind the Isabella similarity. Isn't Colin Ferrell the daddy? He was on the beach with her in Los Angeles in the video. That would be one hot kid with Colin Ferrell as daddy!
