Owen Wilson Chooses Surprisingly Normal Baby Name -- Is That Better Than Something Unique?

When Owen Wilson announced his new baby's name -- Ford Linton Wilson -- no one was surprised. Unexpected names seem to be the norm in Hollywood. But wait. Hold the phone. The baby's name, says People, is actually Robert Ford Wilson. The reason for the misunderstanding isn't clear, but we've got to point out that, with all the Maddoxes, Gunnars, Cruzes and Gideons in the celebutot world, "Robert" seems remarkably normal.

Maybe celebrities are trying to set their kids up with a "stage name" early and think non-traditional names are the way to make them stand out from the crowd. Or perhaps they're just leaning, like the rest of society, towards unique names. Overall, we like Wilson's choice. What do you think?

What do you like better -- traditional names or creative ones? Chime in below!
