Pax Jolie-Pitt: What's In a Name?

So Angelina Jolie caught some flack for changing her newest son's name to Pax after he was adopted. But, finally, an explanation for it... and one that's kind sweet. Angie told Larry King last night that her son's name was suggested by her own mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, before she died from ovarian cancer in January. "My mom wrote a list of names when we were going to have Shiloh," she explained. "One of the names that she suggested was Pax because it meant peace. [But] he's anything but at the moment."

Apparently he's a bit of a wild one. After having no freedom for 3 1/2 years -- sleeping on the same cot next to 20 other cots in a very structured setting -- "he's suddenly very free," she said. Hmm... I wonder if that mean foodfights at the Jolie-Pitt dining room table.
