Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll have revealed the named for their new baby boy: Bear.

I guess when you marry someone whose last name is Rocknroll, the idea of giving your kid a normal name pretty much goes out the window.

The couple's first child together will take his mother's last name, London's Sun newspaper reports. Whew! That'll save the kid a lot of embarrassment.

Bear was born at NHS Hospital in Sussex County in England on Dec. 7.

Rocknroll, 34, was born Abel Smith but legally changed his name. The third husband of Winslet's is apparently a nephew of billionaire Virgin Group founder Richard Branson and reportedly works Virgin Galactic, the empire's space-travel division.
