Ryan Reynolds TOLD You His Baby's Name, but You Wouldn't Listen

Update 3: Guessing game over.

"It is Butternut Summersquash," Ryan Reynolds said during a Today Show appearance. "No, it's out there! It's out there. It's James. Everyone knows, and I told everyone who would listen that."

And because Ryan Reynolds is a conscientious father, he made sure he wasn't the first big mouth to leak his little girl's name to the public.

"Before it was out there, I didn't want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, 'Why did you do that?'"

Which is cuter: that he's clearly thought about the future or that he thinks the Internet won't have imploded by the time she's old enough to start digging up dirt on her mom and dad?

Update 2: According to a new source, the wee one's name is...drumroll...JAMES! Yes! like Bond, Dean, and LeBron. And this time, we actually kind of believe it? Seems very Serena van der Woodsen to go for the "borrowed from the boys" trend. Into it.

Update: The baby name guessing game continues. Ryan Reynolds appeared on the David Letterman show last night, where he eliminated quite a few options (Letterman more or less ran every popular baby name by him). The takeaway? The Lively-Reynolds baby has a family name and it's "maybe kind of" biblical. It's also not Elaine, Olivia, Emma, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Abigail, Madison, Ruth, Mary, or Sarah. Time to start researching Blake's and Ryan's family trees for more options.

Watch the clip below.

Original post: Since Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds' little bundle of perfection arrived in December, the new parents have been very tight-lipped about the birth. We knew everyone was "happy and healthy," but otherwise zilch—besides the rumor that the baby's name was Violet. Which Reynolds says is, yeah, just not true.

"No that's not the name," the actor told USA Today. "I don't want to get into that but I don't know where that came from."

He did confirm however that he doesn't get too much rest. "I don't sleep very much. It's great. It's wonderful. But my brain is elsewhere," he said. "I had to go to Sundance this last week. I was more excited to get a good night's sleep. It was borderline pornographic for me."

So, Violet is off the table. But is Baby Wallpaper Lively-Reynoldsstill a possibility?
