We're Over the Moon About Penelope Cruz's Baby's Name!

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed a new baby girl and we love her celestial baby name.

You're forgiven if you didn't realize that Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem had a baby girl recently -- after all, their second child was born on July 22nd, meaning she shares a birthday with His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge. So, you know, you might have missed the news of that non-royal birth.

But now that all of that other baby/name hoopla has died down, we can focus our attention on the Cruz-Bardem baby's name. And in the world of crazy celebrity baby names, the reported moniker is actually pretty darn... cute. Almost normal, even. It's Luna. Luna Encinas Cruz.

Luna, of course, is a Spanish word meaning "moon," and Encinas is Papa Bardem's first surname, according to People.

A celebrity baby name that manages to combine the proud parents' culture, a family connection, and sounds super-cute with her sibling's name (that would be Leo)? We're kind of over the moon about it, to be honest.
