Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds' Baby Name Revealed: Did They Pick a Weird One?

by at .  Updated at .

Last night we learned that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their first child over the holidays.

Aside from some stunning red carpet maternity fashion statements from Blake, the couple remained low-key throughout the pregnancy, and the birth announcement was no different.

The New York Post broke the news with very little in the way of details, but today (though some fairly shady means) the newspaper has obtained more information, including the child's gender and name:

It's a girl! And what may be even more exciting is the fact that it's a girl with a refreshingly non-quirky name.

Violet Reynolds' identity was revealed via a tweet-and-delete from a nurse who claims to work in the hospital where little V was delivered.

So we could be getting taken for a ride here, but it certainly sounds plausible.

In fact, Elle magazine has speculated that Blake wore violet in the above photo as a way of hinting at her choice of moniker.

Sounds ridiculous, but if you've visited the former Gossip Girl cast member's lifestyle website, then you know this girl is all bout obsessive attention to detail.

Heck, Blake's pregnancy announcement was probably the most carefully-choreographed in recent memory.

Hope you're not looking forward to one of those laid back, type-B childhoods, Violet! Mama Blake is a planner!

Blake Lively Quotes

I once heard someone say that I'm similar to Paris Hilton, since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we're alike.... I don't go to clubs, I don't party, I don't dance on tables, and I don't like sex tapes.

Blake Lively

At the end of the day, I want to go to dinner and watch a movie. I don't want to go to a club and not wear panties.
