"We had narrowed our list to five boy names, and then we couldn't really decide," the Clueless actress told Us Weekly. "He suggested Bear or Blu, and I loved them both."

As for people's reactions to baby Bear Blu? Most people think the name is "super cute," according to Silverstone. Plus, she said that her husband is a great help.

"He's great at changing him and giving baths, and he massages him a lot," she said.

Awww. Sounds like the perfect little family.

"We are all three in love!" Silverstone wrote on her blog after her son was born. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my pregnancy... it has been wonderful. Thank you all!"

So cute. Hopefully her son will think Bear Blu is cute when he hits junior high.
