    What are they thinking name a boy Meredith? Maybe it was originally a masculine name (I don’t know if that’s true, just saying) but now it is 100% a girls name. Especially with Grey’s Anatomy and Meredith Grey. Why would you do that to your child?

    Congratulations! I just had my baby. It was amazing and an incredible experience. I never thought I was very maternal but I’ve gone from being not being bothered about being a mum to being quite keen to have a second baby. For me, the baby idea came from meeting the right man. I mean, it was the surprise of a lifetime. And now he’s here and he’s giggling and smiling. It’s an incredible thing. It was a dream come true in many ways.

  • Eliza

    Awww, congrats to the couple! And I honestly love the name.

  • yaaasssss

    Meredith??!!!! What, were Hilary, Beverly, Kimberley and Lisa taken?! The f.uck are they thinking subjecting their son to a name like that?!!! It’s borderline abuse!

    Nikki was amazingly gorgeous during the first two seasons of ‘Las Vegas’ and was something special. However, she seemed to have had plastic surgery done after the second season and ruined her face and body. I always thought that she had a promising career ahead of her and that she would do mainstream movies and reach the A-list but she just disappeared, basically fell off the radar and has done nothing in recent years.

  • Danila

    Congrats! I think it’s the best thing in life. It really changed my life when I had my first kid. Now that I have three, I’m really, really happy and I would love to have more. It’s a really amazing experience.

  • Michelle

    Congratulations! I’m a new mother myself and I highly recommend having children. My hips are bigger…my breasts are bigger. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

    You shouldn’t be surprised. In December 2008, Jay Mohr petitioned a Los Angeles court to allow him to legally add her last name to his, changing his name to Jay Ferguson Cox Mohr.

    They are weird.

    Strange name for a boy.

    Meaning: Meridith \m(e)-ridi-th, mer(i)-dith\ as a girl’s name (also used as boy’s name Meridith), is a variant of Meredith (Old Welsh), and the meaning of Meridith is “great, noted ruler”.

  • Laura

    I have a question for people from the United States – I’m not from there and I wonder if you have any legal rules what name can you give to your baby? In my country we can name our children with almost every name but there are rules – the name can’t be insulting or funny and when there is a risk that in the future the chosen name will show the child up or cause him any trouble, the Register Office won’t allow parents to use that name. So we can’t name the son with a girls name or give him the name after beer or a condom so I’m always suprised when I hear this weird celebrity babies names. Boy named Meredith isn’t the worst but still (sorry for my bad english).

  • Sean

    Ooooof!! What happened to her face? Used to be a hottie.

  • Ben W

    Serious question… Did she have a surrogate? She was on Watch What Happens Live (After Show) with Jay…about a month ago and she didn’t have a bump AT ALL. Anyway, congrats.

  • shay

    Why Meredith only Daniel is enough and good name!
    And too much botox, collagen…

    and people insult Courteney Cox to use a little Botox and say she has duck lips then what about Nikki? And FYI, Nikki has 32 ​​years, while Courteney was 47 years old soon

  • ana

    Meredith is a girl’s name, right? What are those people thinking? Do they really want their kid to be mocked that badly? They could have chosen a unusual middle name for that…

  • Cookie

    Hmm… Are they Stargate Atlantis fans? Meredith Rodney McKay, ring any bells? I’m sorry to tell, it’s a girl’s name nowadays.

  • Meredith

    First of all, Meredith did start as a male’s name. Second, as a male named Meredith, I have had NO issues growing up with that name. Actually, it’s been great! It’s unique, no one forgets me, it’s good for my business knowing “oh, it’s that guy Meredith” not, “do you remember Jon?”……”which Jon….who”. Also, it’s a perfect ice breaker talking about your name. And finally everyone is, unfortunately, entitled to their own opinion, but who gives anyone the right to criticize a name!? There are guys named Leslie and girls named George and others named Apple and Coco. It’s great that we can name our kids how and what we want. If you have a negative opinion about someone’s name, you really need something to do. Congrats with your new Son, Meredith!

    i seriously thought she was over 45.. wow

    Meredith is actually originally masculine before it became gender bended. I see so many beautiful boy names being hijacked by girls. Very nice to see that they gave a boy a name from the correct gender. But when Jessica Simpsons names her daughter Maxwell Drew people praise her and call it ‘cute’. Are you kidding me?

    Meredith is predominantly masculine in some cultures. Nice to see that they respect history and tradition. It’s a Welsh name meaning Lord. Can’t get anymore masculine than that can you?
