Baby Jade?

Giada De Laurentiis may have been shy about revealing any possible baby names in the past, but she recently let it slip that her first child, a girl, might be named after her!

So far, the couple has tentatively agreed on “Jade,” which is the English translation of “Giada.” But they’ll hold off on their decision until they meet their bundle of joy. After all, “my parents named me ‘Giada’ only after they saw my eyes,” says the green-eyed chef.

Having grown up with a relatively exotic name, De Laurentiis wants her daughter’s name to be simple while still retaining some of her own Italian culture. “I don’t want to give her an all-American name, but a combination like ‘Valentina Thompson’ would be strange,” she laughs.


So what do we think of Jade? I think it could work. Exotic but not too exotic. Personal but not a direct copy. I like it!

Does that mean Todd's name is "Todd Thompson"?

Any Jade I've known or seen on T.V. has been a b*itch.

I literally gasped out loud when I read this! I am in complete shock!!! I was thinking for over a year now that when I have a daughter wanted to name her Jade. Now Giada took my idea! Now when I eventually get around to having a kid it'll just look like I took Giada's idea when realy I had thought of it long ago. Grr, it reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where someone took George's idea for a baby name, lol. Now I know how he felt!

ACtually, my name IS Jade! And I love it. So much that I want to name my child (if a girl) after me, but i think that's kind of pushing it. Fathers can name their sons after themselves, but "normally" the mom's don't. Who knows! Anyway, I'm always getting compliments on my name. I'm excided for her!

When I hear "Jade" I tend to think of an Asian woman, not an Italian.

I'll just point out the obvious on the table: This blog can't be better and the blogroll isn't bad enough. I think you mustn't share all the information for to many reasons, and I really understand that, and you know what? I don't care... I'll visit the blog to read word by word all the information posted.
