Levi Alves McConaughey -- Matthew McConaughey's Son!

Matthew McConaughey and longtime girlfriend Camila Alves named their son Levi Alves McConaughey, reports OK!

Matthew also took the time to explain how they came up with the name for their baby boy: “Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person… Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: ‘If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.’”

As for the name Alves (Camila‘s last name), McConaughey explained, “We wanted to incorporate her family name.”

Matthew and Camila also released the following statement: “We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin’.” —Matthew David McConaughey and Camila Maria Saraiva de Araujo Alves

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

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

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

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.

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

It´s a common name in Brazil.

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.

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.

Another douche bag in the making

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

great name

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.

#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.

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

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

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

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

another stupid f***ing name

casperrrr @ 07/08/2008 at 9:25 pm

lmao!!
alves thats my ***** of a deputy principals name (mrs. alves)

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 :)

levi? sounds jewish

^^^ @ 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.

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!!

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!
