David Schwimmer is a father!

Actor David Schwimmer and his wife, Zoe Buckman, welcomed a baby girl on Sunday! Schwimmer, 44, tweeted a photo of his baby, welcoming her to this "crazy but wonderful world."

What did he name his daughter? Drumroll please...

Cleo Buckman Schwimmer

Cleo is a name with Greek origins that means "illustrious." It is also the name of the 20th century British jazz singer Cleo Laine, who is famous for her scat singing.

The name Cleo is unique, as it has not been in the Social Security Administration's top 1000 names for the last 11 years. Cleo is also a shortened form of the name Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen.

The baby's middle name, Buckman, is the maiden name of Schwimmer's wife, Zoe. This is a great way for moms to incorporate their own names into a baby's name.

Schwimmer and Buckman, 25, wed last June in a small ceremony. The couple met in 2007 at a London restaurant called Cuckoo Club where Zoe was a waitress.

Congratulations to the couple!
