Jessica Alba Names Her Daughter Honor

User Rating: / 6
When it comes to naming their newborns, any name goes in the celebrity world. On June 7th, the Hollywood actress Jessica Alba gave birth to her and her husband’s first child.

Just like so many other celebrities, Alba and Warren seem to be the latest advocates of giving their child a unique baby name. Adding their own unusual choice of names to those that have taken over Hollywood in recent years, the newlyweds decided to name their newborn baby Honor Marie Warren.

Alba and Warren quietly wed on May 19, 2008 in Los Angeles, California. The two have dated since the fall of 2004, after meeting on the set of The Fantastic Four, in which Alba starred and Warren worked as a director’s assistant. They got engaged last December, after revealing Alba was expecting the couple’s first child. 

Born on April 28, 1981, in Pomona, California, Alba comes from a diverse background. Her mother has Danish and French Canadian roots, and her father is Mexican-American. Since an early age Alba showed an interest in acting.

The 27-year-old Hispanic actress rose to prominence with the title role in James Cameron’s sci-fi television series Dark Angel, and then expanded her résumé to film. Alba’s most notable feature film roles have included a hip-hop dancer and choreographer in Honey, an exotic dancer in Sin City, and the comic book heroine, Sue Storm, in The Fantastic Four.

Now with their first child being born, Alba is planning to take a break from acting.
The name Honor is a baby girl name and comes from the Irish origin. In Irish the meaning of the name Honor is: Honor. Honor was one of the virtue names favored by the Puritans.

Today, Honor is a very rare and uncommon female first name. While unconventional, the name Honor is defined as “an evidence or symbol of distinction” and as such makes a lovely and unique first name for a girl.
