    Stupid, stupid, stupid name! She just lost some I.Q. points with me.

    It has a nice ring to it, but they obviously didn’t think about childhood teasing…….He will probably go by James, Jimmy, or something.

    When I think of Tennessee as a name, my immediate thought is Tennessee Williams (renowned playwright of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’) so if they named him after that playwright, I think it’s quite nice, otherwise, as another American celebrity ploy to make their child an “individual”? A little icky but it reminds me a lot of Tennessee Williams so I can’t see much wrong with it.

    Congratulations! I don’t know why but I thought she was expecting a girl. I think she wanted this name because she spent his childhood inTennessee.

    Why would she name that child after the state she is from. That is just do ridiculous.

    Sarah Says:

    @lauren: Really? Lots of people name their kids after States. It is hardly a new idea. Here are some of the ones I’ve heard: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Nevada, Carolina, Dakota, Tennessee, and Virginia.

    DemiTasse Says:

    LOL! Congrats to Reese. Don’t wish her any bad luck.

    Have to say that this is another opportunity to keep reminding her public of her Southern Belle image. “Tennessee” is so…Southern! LOL!

    Heard of Montana, but Alaska, that’s new.

    Congratulations to this wonderful couple. And really, people. Naming your child is very personal and a great deal of thought goes into it. It usually has meaning to the family. Don’t judge, it is not your business. The parents tell us the names, they aren’t asking our opinion.

    @Ari: Tennessee was Mr. Williams nickname. His birth name was Thomas. He was nicknamed Tennessee when he went to college in Iowa with his Southern drawl. I highly doubt that they named him after Tennesse Williams. This name is another effort on Reese’s part to beat us to death with the fact that she projects herself as a humble Southern girl. Poor kid stuck with the name and these parents.

    WTF???? If I was that kid, I would be b!tch slapping those two for the rest of my life! Wow Jim! Wow!

    @Sisboomba

    He don’t give a crap, it isn’t his anyways and it’s obvious! They can keep playing the charades all they want!

    Maybe now Witherspoon will just go far far far away and take Toth with her!!!!

    Big A** Fakes!

    it could be worse she could call him sweet home Alabama,

    Tessa Says:

    Ok so the name is pretty horrid.
    But his nickname is going to be Ten, which isn’t so bad.

    remember da truth Says:

    you people just snarl when you type, don’t you? Just because she named her child after the state she’s from, doesn’t mean it has anything to do with you and what you think she was sitting there thinking she could tell you about herself with it.

    Lauren — for someone who doesn’t know the difference between “there” and “their”, you don’t have much room to talk about what you think is stupid.

    remember da truth Says:

    I really don’t see what all the fuss is about. Tennessee is better than naming the boy Rhode Island!
    Tennessee Toth has a great ring to it. Nowadays with made up names like Rihanna and KeSha, a name that has some personal meaning to the family sounds pretty good.

    remember da truth Says:

    Fire in the Hole you sure are fired up about people you don’t know!

    Get a life, and calm down. if you are this obsessed about celebs that you start name-calling and venting, you need to get outside and find something productive to do.

    @Ivor:

    That was my exact reaction to the name. Like a nickname to the fastest gun in the west.

    Congrats on the birth of their healthy bouncing baby boy. Children are a blessing. I wish some of you would think before commenting. If you have nothing nice to say but complain about a newborns name, you shouldn’t comment at all on this joyous occasion.

    jd Says:

    I dont think its any weirder than a lot of these celeb kids, like Paltrow who named her kid after a fruit for example. He will probably go by his middle name like lots of people do.

    who Says:

    I actually don’t mind the baby’s name, Tennessee James has a nice ring to it. Tennessee is pretty close to the name ‘Tennison’, Russell Crowe’s son’s name. Tennesse is no worse than the name Tennison.
