Well, as far as Jason Lee is concerned with that name for his son, it was a surprise since Jason isn't that well known for being unique like Gwen tries to be. At least give him one normal sounding name like Rachel Griffiths did for her son, Banjo Patrick, that way when he's older he can answer to the middle name if he chooses. I think the name is fitting of Gwen and her hubby too, fitting of the fact that Gwen tries too damn hard to be unique, imo. To each their own.

I agree with Jude C, he'd never be in trouble if he was my son. I love it. I think it's very fitting of Gwen and Gavin. Love it.

Well I don't think Zuma alone is that bad or Nesta alone, but that whole think all together is really quite silly. But at least it's better than "Pilot inspector" or "Jermagesty" (that's Jermaine Jackson's son.

US MAGAZINE is saying this:By naming their newborn son Zuma Nesta Rock, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale "have proven decisively that they're masters in choosing names that are both highly unusual and carry a lot of personal meaning," baby name expert Pamela Redmond Satran, co-author of The Baby Name Bible, tells Usmagazine.com."They've continued their own place-naming tradition by naming their son after Zuma Beach in Malibu," Satran explains, citing a profile of Rossdale which said he had an epiphany that began his career."He was standing on Zuma Beach in the early morning after working all night as a production assistant on a music video and was quoted as saying he realized he was wasting his time," Satran says. "He drove up the coast, slept in his car, and started making the moves that would launch his career."Zuma is also the name of a 1975 album by Neil Young and Crazy Horse.Nesta, meanwhile, was Bob Marley's first name before an immigration official switched it with his middle name, Robert."This name obviously links to big brother Kingston's and is another nod to Jamaica and reggae," says Satran.Bob Marley's son Ziggy used Nesta as a middle name for his son, as did his other son Rohan, who has a son named John Nesta Marley with singer Lauryn Hill.The name Rock "needs no explanation," given that the baby's parents are rock stars, Satran says, and the fact that we're "long overdue for a Rock Hudson-inspired revival."Ok, but still *rolleyes*

WTF were they thinking when they chose his name? I'm all for unique baby names, but Zuma? That's so wrong.

from a site i just found (http://nodoubtweb.com/wordpress/?p=3188) :Zuma is rare as a first or surname in the US. It comes from the name Zulema, of Arabic origin, and its meaning is “peace”. It sounds like Cyma, Syma, Sima, Cima and Soma. Other similar baby names are Zuba, Yuma and Zulma. Nesta is pronounced NESS-tah. It is of Welsh origin and avariant of Agnes. It means “pure and holy”. Rock is a variant of Rocco (German and Italian origin). Actor Rock Hudson, who was originally named Roy Scherer, made the name famous. It means “rest”. Other name trivia; Zuma Rock (together) is a large monolith located in Nigeria. It is sometimes referred to as “Gateway to Abuja.” As mentioned before Bob Marley’s birth name was Robert Nesta Marley. He also passed down ‘Nesta’ onto his son Ziggy Marley (real name David Nesta). Ziggy then went on to pass ‘Nesta’ down to his second son by naming him Gideon Robert Nesta.

Zuma? Does this remind anyone else of a particular malt liquor from the 90s? I'm just sayin'..... thank GOD she hatched already though...seriously, i was starting to get so tired of the jersey knit maternity-wear. Gwen is so fashionable and I'm looking forward to her bouncing back to her old style now that Kingston's lil bro has come out to play! Congrats to Gwen and Gavin!
