If you haven’t heard, Drew Barrymore is expecting her first child with husband Will Kopelman. We love Drew’s first name—it fits her so well. Kopelman’s last name is also great, because it gives the expecting parents plenty of freedom with a first name.
They can choose something that’s one syllable, similar to both parents, or something with a few more syllables paired with a shorter middle name. Barrymore is never one to make boring decisions, and we’re sure she probably already has the perfect name in mind.
We don’t know whether Drew is having a girl or a boy, but we like the idea of Drew looking for a one syllable name to balance out the baby’s last name.
Since Drew has an androgynous name, we picked four names that will work for a baby girl or a baby boy, and will sound great with the last name “Kopelman.” Our favorites are Sam, Joss, Gene (Jean) and Shae.
It seems like Drew should be expecting any time now, so hopefully we don’t have to wait too long to find out what she decided!
Sam (Hebrew): Sun child; Bright sun
Joss (German): One of the goths
Gene (English): Form of Eugene, meaning “a wellborn man”
Shae (Gaelic): An admirable man/from the fairy fortress
