Liv Tyler’s little boy was anxious to be welcomed into the world, as the little tot reportedly arrived six weeks early. The 37-year-old actress announced her son's unique preppy baby name in the above Instagram post.

"Sailor Gene Gardner," she captioned the photo, which shows her son's tiny hand grasping onto a charm with an anchor on it.

Sailor is a unique baby name choice that hasn't ranked in the top 1000 for boys or girls in the last 100 years, according to the Social Security Administration.

Tyler isn't the only celebrity mom to pick this name, as Christie Brinkley has a daughter named Sailor. No word yet on why the couple picked this cute nautical-inspired name. Perhaps the tot was conceived on a yacht?

His middle name, Gene, is a name of Greek and English origin that means "well born." Tyler's dad, Aeromith's Steven Tyler, shared the above picture on his Instagram page and captioned the photo, "That's my grandbaby Sailor Gene... he's makin waves already."

This is the second child for Tyler, who has a 10-year-old son named Milo with her ex Royston Langdon. The actress could be next planning a wedding, as she was recently spotted out wearing a huge sparkly ring on her engagement finger.

The proud grandpa previously posted a picture of him and his other daughter Mia with Liv in the hospital shortly before she sent into labor. "Love is love is love" Steven captioned the photo. "So proud of my Alpha Pup."
