    definite classic name. congrats to them!!! he’ll be a cutie.

  • Megan

    not so sure about otis, but tobias is amazing :)

  • mertz

    otis is a classic name. it’s a pretty strong name also and seems like something that is usually passed down. some of my favourite people are named otis and are total salt of the earth people. it’s a really good nongeneric/anti-hollywood ;p name. means one who hears well. atleast he didn’t get stuck with my middle name :(. mine means people, and i hate people. that’s why i’m such a big b*tch :). oh and tobias like the animorphs ahahahaha. tobias/tobey, is a great name. what’s their daughter’s name, ruby, yeah. that’s also a good classic name. wow. traditional much.

    @mertz: Yes I know the feeling. I like little kids and animals. F#ck adults, they are so rude. A rude adult talking aon a cell phone annoys me 5 x more than a little kid talking loud at a dinner table. I hate adults. If I see an adult give a little kid a dirty look I always give the adult a dirty look. I think Otis is cute they can call him oti for short. Why the heck not. Children are a blessing. You don’t know your full capacity to love until you have one. sorry for all the child freerers out there. I got a kid who hates babies. She was suppose to be my cuties frau frau little girl but she drop kicked her baby doll at 3 and has told me she hates babies and never wants to get married. I don’t think she’ll change and I love her so much. So I dont have a problem with childr freerers seeing how my daugther is uncoubtly gonit to be one someday. I’m sure of it. But still, you don’t know love until you have a child. Just my thoughts on that.

  • surpise!

    I love Otis Tobias! its really normal! so not a kooky celeb name which is so refreshing since they are all pretty outrageously pathetic and cruel..

  • Laura

    I like Tobias but I don’t like Otis

  • Sophie

    Its ok, sort of rhymes though!

  • Tazina

    What an awful name. Hillbilly tooth missing unshaven comes to mind.

  • laura

    its a nice enough name.

    jennifers quite pretty, i never really noticed before

  • Jennifer garner

    I like it. At least it is normal unlike Zuma, Kingston, Apple

  • Jazz

    Otis Tobias doesn’t really roll off the tongue easily but I like it.

  • huh?

    Shows my age or how many times I’ve watched the ‘Andy Griffith Show’, but Otis is Mayberry’s overweight town drunk. Can’t stop thinking of that first.

  • huh?

    Has anyone watched reruns of ‘The Andy Griffith Show’? Otis is Mayberry’s fat, town drunk. He’s what comes to mind for me,

  • ellie’

    Most definetly don’t like Otis…. but congratulations

  • Noticias de famosos

    Congratulations to the couple! Tobias seems to me a beautiful name for

  • LuckyL

    Lol, Arrested Development

  • f

    it sounds like a dog!

  • jane

    I like Tobias, but don’t like Otis.

  • Ayla

    I’ve never heard of Mayberry’s fat, town drunk before. When I think of the name Otis I think of Otis Redding. Besides that my favorite nephew is also called Otis. I like the name!

  • essie

    since they both end in ‘s’ sorta a tongue twister to say together… yeah maybe cuter to just call him oti like someone above mentioned since it’s also the intial O.T

  • magpie

    Calls to mind Brian Ferry’s fox killing, public school twat of a son, Otis. Is it the greek for keen of hearing or the german for wealth? Like Tobias, god is good.

  • mailey

    they’re both ugly. and the names they chose for their children are ridiculous and borderline cruel.

  • Meream

    Wow, sounds like a wise and strong name. :)

  • LuckyL

    By the way, it’s a horrible name, and Hollywood’s trying to start a trend of giving your children archaic farm names after the strange name trend.

  • jennifer

    Tobias is cute, but Otis a little weird, anyway the baby should be cute as his father and his sweetheart sister!

  • http://JustJared em

    I like his name

  • Eve

    Hmmm. Not feeling the name but c’est la vie. As someone else mentioned, the new Hollywood trend is to either go casual/traditional or go “old money” and giving kids names like “Otis”, “Henry”, “Olivia”. I guess naming after fruits and vegetables is going out of style and “Ava”, “Madison” and “Dylan” has been done to death.

  • Jill

    Tobias is okay, but Otis??
    Maybe they will call him Toby for a nickname.

  • Caiters

    Otis is a terrible name! the child isn’t a dog or a pig. i hope to god they call him by his middle name.

  • bla85

    Congrats to the family, but nasty name it sounds as if he will grow up to chew on straw and wear overalls…..

  • lakers fan in boston

    what does toby do now
    the only movies i ever recall him in are the spiderman movies and that horse movie
    i dont no much about him, but it kinda seems like he’s on a slump

  • Rebecka

    I like Otis even though it reminds me of elevators. lol
    Otis Maguire sounds good.

    I guess people will always have a problem with celebrity baby names. They are too unusual/too common/too old fashion/used too often etc.
    I don’t like the ridiculous, object/profession ones (Pilot Instructor!!! Audio Science!!!!!) but otherwise….who cares! In a year we’ll be looking at pics of small Otis and everybody will have gotten used to it by then.

  • Fabienne

    Tobey’s wife is really pretty. I think they’ve picked lovely names for them. Congrats!

  • chloe!!!

    Tobias is OK, but I don’t like Otis, sounds like the town drunk!


    ahahahha spin cycle, i totally get your daughter though. lol. i keep telling my mom i’m never having any kids. i like babies, but i definately do not like kids, (they’re too strange to me, even though i was one at some point and they move around way too much, but atleast they are funny and interesting) and i do not like adults either. lol. i am such a woman girl child hater. stuck in the past=me. lol at all the farm/backwards/hillbilly comments. yeah the name doesn’t roll of the tongue but i like them together. one’s fancy and the other is normal. here’s to hoping he’s cute like his dad.

  • haha

    what and it’s not otis braveheart?

  • mh

    Aw, you guys are terrible. My brothers name is Otis. I love it.
