Middle Name = Family Name?

It's a boy! Tori Spelling announced that her son Finn Davey McDermott was born 8/31/12 at 5:39 p.m. on her web site, EdiTORIal. And while she and hubby Dean McDermott didn't find out the sex of baby number four -- a surprise pregnancy-- ahead of time, Tori went on the record saying she thought it was a boy, and it turns out her mama-instinct was right on. So we're not surprised that they had a great boy name ready to go, and we think their choice is adorable!

As for the middle name? It turns out that Davey is actually Tori's middle name and comes from her paternal grandfather, making it a great nod to her family, and the name's source is a Hebrew expression meaning "beloved" and is a nickname for David, which can mean "darling" or "hero."

Will you be using (or have you used in the past) a family name for the middle name of your child?
