Ben Affleck Loves Traditional Baby Names

By Super Admin

Celeb-inspired baby names is the latest trend among Brit parents! But the pearl harbour actor is not one among the flock. He loves traditional names.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have reportedly decided to keep a traditional name for their unborn child - because the actor hates "trendy" baby names in Hollywood.

The couple, who have a two-year-old daughter Violet, are expecting their second baby later this year (08).

However, Affleck is adamant not to follow in the footsteps of celebrity parents with an unorthodox name for their new baby.

"Ben put his foot down and said no way to trendy Hollywood names," Contact music quoted a source, as telling U.S. magazine Star.

"If it's a boy, he likes the name Benjamin, not just because it's his name but it's that of his hero, Benjamin Franklin," the source added.

Prior to Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck dated Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Christian Slater.
