  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    of course there will be one to two hippie hicks who’ll like the name. but that ish sounds stupid, to me.

    poor levi, gotta grow up with a smelly doucheosaurus-rex as a father.

  • lurpac

    Levi is a biblical name. Levi was the fourth son of Jacob. His descendants became the Levites one of the tribes of Israel and also the priests in the Old testament.

  • ala

    i love that name and i think its so sweet they choose a name that has that kind of special meaning to them

  • jared doesn’t like me

    Levi is a great name! A lot nicer than Nicole Kidman’s baby daughter “Sunday”.t

  • Rita

    I also like levi strauss

  • mike

    I love it! <3

  • Rita

    Suri, Shiloh, Levi, Sunday Rose

    ok Angelina…you can put sun and moon jolie-pitt

  • amy

    HAHA!!!!! LOL Rita, that was funny as hell….. well said……it’s kinda hilarious to see how celebrities fight to see who names his baby the most weirdly lol …… i don’t like sunday,nahla, suri, shiloh,..but it is THEIR babies so they can name it whatever they want to, nobody can attempt to judge, focus on your own life people….however, the opinion is acceptable, and i just want to say that i like the following names stella, honor, maddie and levi….HECK! those celebs want to be original and who can blame them? i know what i’m saying is kind of confused but i only mean, they TRY to be original but they most of the time FAIL….sadly…..but no one has the right to criticize them because i’m not sure your babies names are better! their will to be original often turns out to make a ridiculous choice, but once again they are the parents! and hey , no matter what y’all say and talk shit about ‘em, have you EVER considered the fact that they’re a million times WEALTHIER than y’all EVER be?? :D so back off!!

  • mina

    Levy is a Jewish name.. lots of them, including my brother. I like more as a second name as is my brother’s tough.

  • amy

  • jajajaja

  • Ade

    Levi ? Ridiculous name (but it’s just my opinion).

  • Lillianne

    Love Levi. Love the thought behind it. Can’t wait to see the little guy and I hope he’s just as rambunctious as his daddy must have been.

  • Lillianne

    I’m going with Cherry and Peach for the twins.

  • ace tomato

    That names sounds right for Matteo’s son. It is very Southern to use the OT biblical names.

  • Isabela

    It’s a common name here in Brazil! I like it

  • anna

    looove the name it fits so well it’s unique but not weird like other celeb kids names

  • Okay?

    I kew he would mame his son a Christian/biblical name. He’s Irish Catholic and Camilla is Catholic also. It’s nice although Levi is sometimes known as a Hebrew name.

  • anon

    It’s a great name. I love the trend of Biblical names, like Levi, Shiloh & Moses. it’s like the old days…..

  • emanuella

    It´s a common name in Brazil.

  • Jill

    Not my favorite name, but I can understand it has special meaning for the parents. Hope we get to see some photos soon. With such a good-looking daddy and such a beautiful mommy, this is going to be one gorgeous baby.

  • You/Me

    The name is really not that uncommon, at least here in Texas. I’ve met a couple of people named Levi and my cousin named her son Levi.

  • LuckyL

    Another douche bag in the making

  • laurie

    LEVI??? only if it’s button fly not original.

  • Celeb watcher

    great name

  • remember da truth

    Don’t the ignorant people talking about jeans realize that Levi Strauss was the name of the guy who invented jeans?!?! It’s a very common name. Damn, way to show you never read or have any curiosity about life beyond Ali Lohan or Vaness Hudgens.

    I’m so happy for them. That is one of the most beautiful messages I’ve read from happy parents. They soooo deserve this, a healthy baby boy, for such enthusiastic, loving parents.

    Matthew is a strong name, and he gave his son a strong name like his. Too cool.

  • remember da truth

    #29 yes, you are right, it’s a Hebrew name as they all were Jewish in the Bible first, even Jesus. Levi is a common enough name to be in the old and new Testaments.
    It’s a great name by itself, but with all that personal meaning behind it for them, it’s even better. I’m glad you pointed out his strong Christian influences!

    Also, it’s a Southern tradition to name the eldest son with the mother’s maiden name, so they did that, too. This is a well-thought out name, and totally reflects both loving parents.

  • Star

    At least is not a day of the week or a month or a fruit name.
    Good choice .

  • Amelia

    Simple , beautifull and strong name, i like it very much.
    Congratulations to the familly.

  • Amelia

    In Brazil we carry on the mother’s maiden name through life, some people evven keep after marry, both parents name.

  • Ginger

    Same as my ex-husband’s child’s name. hehhe…

  • Jammy Sod

    another stupid f***ing name

  • casperrrr

    alves thats my bitch of a deputy principals name (mrs. alves)

  • Caroline

    It’s a quite popular name in Brazil, like João (John) or Matheus (Matthew), Pedro (Peter) or Marcos (Mark). Biblical names are very common in Brazil, being the family religious or not. Since Camila is Brazilian, I was expecting a name that sound a bit brazillian… In portuguese, Levi sounds really beautiful!

    Levi was one of Jacob’s sons: “The sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob’s first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun;” (Gn 35:3) and later, Levi’s family became the tribe of Levi, one of the twelve tribes of Israel.

    The name has a lot of (good) meanings :)

  • anghi

    levi? sounds jewish

  • wuh?

    ^^^ @ Infamous

    What do you have against Matthew? What is your problem? He looks better than your ugly Daniel Craig and his pimply face. He’s also looking cleaner than your other love, Brad Pitt who won’t put those hats down. Makes me wonder what kind of hair Brad Pitt is sporting where he has to cover it up constantly.

    Congratulations to Matthew and his lady love. Levi is an excellent name, and it’s from the bible. Great choice.

    Congratulations Camila

    Levi is a beautiful (and normal) name in english and portuguese too. Good choice!

    Welcome Levi! God bless you and your wonderful family.

    *Parabéns Camila…Seu filho já deve ser lindo e o nome faz jus a ele. Simples, mas que está adequado a sua dupla-nacionalidade.
    Boa escolha a sua.

    Muita saúde ao pequeno Levi e que você traga logo sua linda família para conhecer o nosso país.


  • liz

    its so messed up that though he picked a name from the bible and he seems so religious that he would go and have a baby out of wedlock!!

  • K

    I like it, plus it’s got a great meaning to Matt and Camilla. Congrats!
    btw, this summer’s just packed with Hollywood babies being born!
