Zooey Deschanel Went Too Far When Picking Out a Hipster Baby Name


Yep. She may have gone a little too far, but at least the first part of the name is pretty normal. Zooey welcomed a baby girl with her husband Jacob Pechenik in July and has now shared the name they’ve chosen for the first time. It’s Elsie Otter. You read that right, Otter. She shared:

”It’s Elsie Otter. Like the animal. Sea otter.”

The actress also previously suggested that her newborn should run for president:

”My infant daughter is going to run for president. She remains silent all of the key issues but she’s much cuter than .”

Meanwhile, Zooey’s ‘New Girl’ co-star Lamorne Morris has gushed about how cute the baby is and says it was inevitable that it should be attractive because the baby is very genetically blessed:

”She’s an extremely cute baby. She looks like Zooey. Two good-looking parents will make a good-looking kid. Unless there’s that one where you’re like, ‘Oh, you’re going to make a terrible child.’ But that was not gonna happen with these two.¬†She’s a great mom to us on set. She puts the hammer down on the craziness we do from time to time.”
