What do you think of the baby name used by Reese Witherspoon this week for her new son?

Tennessee James

It's a high bar for the kid to reach for, but the Tennessee Williams connection is too excellent for me not to love it. Just not for me -- on a Yankee it might seems like a pretentious attempt.

I like it. Tennessee was a family name I found in my ancestry.com tho.

Meh. I'm ok with it. There are weirder celebrity names out there but it's not my style. Plus the only Tennessee I can think of is Tennessee Williams and those are some big shoes to fill!

I actually really like it, especially because we have a special Tennessee connection. I wonder if he'll go by TJ?

It sounds like a brand of whiskey, but it does have a ring to it.

I'm neutral. I just kept saying it over and over trying to imagine myself calling my son that.

Ha! Maybe that's why I like it. I don't think it works for every kid, a kid of mine couldn't pull that name off. But I think it's a good name for some kids. I like it.

I thought about the "TJ" factor as well! I like it...not for one of mine, but I bet her boy will get away with it just fine!

I don't hate it, but it wouldnt' even be on the 'to consider' list to name my child either.

I don't like it. It sounds feminine to me, perhaps because I know two Tennysons who are female (and both go by Tenny).
