Jenna Fischer's Cute Baby Boy Name -- We Kind of Love It!

Not that we need another reason to love The Office star Jenna Fischer, but here's a new one: She gave her baby boy an awesome name: Weston Lee.

The name Weston itself doesn't have a particularly cool or surprising meaning -- "town facing west" -- but aside from that, Fischer's choice hits all the right naming notes in our opinion: It's unique without being wacky; it has cute nickname potential (Wes); and the middle name honors a family member (Fischer's hubby is Lee Kirk). 

We're not the only ones who like it, either: "Weston is a Jane Austen-type English surname turned relaxed American cowboy that reached its highest popularity ever last year," says Nameberry cofounder Linda Rosenkrantz. It ranked 224th on the Social Security Administration's list of popular baby names in 2010, up from 397 in 2000. And way back in 1990, actor Nicolas Cage named his son Weston.

Beyond that, it falls into the currently hot ending-in- ‘n’ boys’ name trend, Rosenkrantz adds. So kudos, Jenna. Weston is a winner.
