Will Shakira's Baby Boy Live Up to His Name? She Set the Bar High

Just days after showing off her sweet-yet-sexy maternity portrait, Shakira has given birth to a baby boy! His name? Milan Piqué Mebarak.

The pop star and her boyfriend, Gerard Piqué, announced the happy news on her website, and shared the details of the baby's name, explaining: "The name Milan (pronounced MEE-lahn), means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic; in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious; and in Sanskrit, unification." That's a tall order for a baby -- and we hope he lives up to it.  

The boy's name Milan is nowhere to be found on the Social Security Administration's list of top 1000 baby names over the past 20 years, although it is on the list for girls, ranking in at number 608 in 2011.

Congratulations to Shakira and Gerard, and welcome baby Milan!
