Yesterday, news broke that the Dewan-Tatum’s expanded their twosome to a threesome with the beautiful arrival of a baby girl on Friday evening in London. At first, the gushing parents were mum on every detail on baby’s delivery — but now, the doting daddy has revealed that they’ve, in fact, given birth to an adorable (no doubt about that!) little girl.

As for baby’s moniker they’ve chosen Everly Tatum — and I can’t lie, I’m head over heels with their pick! Aside from the obvious (like oh, I dunno: just who could disagree with Channing Tatum about anything?!), the name Everly is relatively unheard of in the celebrity realm, which makes it all the more unique and fabulous as their choice for their sweet new arrival. It’s English in origin and to be honest, it just flows together: Everly Tatum. If down the road, little Ev chooses to opt to pick-up mom’s maiden name too, even Everly Dewan-Tatum sounds magical.

I also love that throughout her entire pregnancy, Jenna was very honest about not wanting to know the sex of their baby. The couple confessed to People.com that they were trying really hard to keep baby’s gender a surprise. Channing even told E! News, “It’s one of the only real surprises that you’re ever gonna get that’s legit” so I love the fact that they chose a gender-neutral name like Everly even more. It would have worked for a male or a female, but I think it’s a sweet, elegant, classy name for a girl. She’ll grow into it as she get’s older and it’s innocent enough to carry her all the way through childhood.

Because the Dewan-Tatum’s chose a name so out of the norm, we rounded up a few more English-origin names to consider for your baby’s arrival. Added bonus? Most of these work for boys or girls, so if you’re keeping gender a surprise, you won’t have to skimp out on your favorite names!
