And Halle Berry's Baby Name Is . . .

Over the moon mama Halle Berry and proud papa Gabriel Aubry have named their brand new lil lady Nahla Ariela Aubry.

According to an article on

"Nahla is the Arabic word for 'drink of water,'" Pamela Redmond Satran, the co-author of The Baby Name Bible and Cool Names for Babies tells Us. "Ariela is related to the Hebrew Ariel, which means 'lion of god.'"

We're betting this beautiful name will fit the much-anticipated celeb babe.

Rebekah, Aubry is her last name, so no choice there. I like the sound of Nahla, it sounds exotic and feminine.

I love Nahla, Ariella... not so much... Aubry is adorable, but does not go with the other names at ALL. Little Nahla will be gorgeous!

Yeah, I also thought of Disney when I heard this. Makes me think Lion King and Little Mermaid. Maybe they're favorite movies?

ariela is o.k., though arielle would have sounded much softer, but to name your supposedly beloved daughter nahla is just cruel 0_o

It's a unique name but I wonder why she chose an arabic name for "drink of water". Maybe it's the fresh and pure aspect? Anyway, yay for Halle and the hotness. Can't wait to see that baby! This might be one of the more anticipated baby sightings given these parents!

I think of Simba's (The Lion King's) girlfriend, Nala. It's pretty though.
