That’s right – nearly two weeks after we heard that Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham welcomed their newest family member, we’ve learned his name: Brendan Joseph.
We weren’t expecting anything outlandish from the couple, since they’ve kept it simple with their other two kids’ names: Ella Rae and Michael. No word on whether the name honors family.
Brendan’s been on the decline since 1999, coming in at #204 last year. Still, he remains an impeccable Irish heritage choice, thanks to Saint Brendan, one of the twelve apostles of Ireland. We find him more appealing than Brandon or Brayden/Braydon/Braiden and a bit more current than Brian. Joseph is, of course, about as classic as it gets.
Congratulations to the growing family!
