Neil Patrick Harris is a new dad. He and partner David Burtka welcomed twins on Tuesday! And the names are Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.
Harper is, of course, the Hollywood it name of the moment – the new Ava. But Gideon is refreshing. Wonder if it will catch on?
C in DC says
Do we know the kids’ last names? Harper Harris? Harper Burtka? Otherwise, I really like the names.
I think it’s Burtka-Harris
Neither are my style, but not awful, either.
Gideon is nice. But Harper skews very male to me. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to hear it for a girl and not be a little shocked.
Emmy Jo says
I LOVE Gideon (as you probably know). And since we’re probably not going to get to use it (due to my husband’s nixing of all alliterative names), I don’t think I’d mind if it became more popular.
Harper is cute, too — it’s one of my favorite surname-names for girls.
Congratulations to Neil and David!
I really like them! Harper is overdone, but it’s still cute. I love Gideon! It’s one I wouldn’t use myself, something about saying those sounds all the time I think I would get tired of… But I really love it for someone else and would so love to meet a Gideon. I like that their initials are G and H, cute. Congratulations to them!
Gotta say I LOVE Gideon as a name. Harper isn’t really my style but it’s still cute
Aaaah I love their names. Gideon! A Gideon! And I also love Harper!
