Will your baby be a Bella or a total Treblemaker?

Pitch Perfect 2 is finally here! If you're anything like us, you've been refreshing the internet for months hoping for another peek at what is to come.

"They're coming to the end of their time as Bellas," the Hunger Games actress revealed in an interview with Yahoo Movies. "Figuring out how to sort of leave the nest and the comfort of each other's friendship and figure out what they're going to do with the rest of their lives." Before they go, let's take one last look at our favorite songstresses (and their rivals) for what really counts — their names.
