Soleil Moon Frye is keeping to her unconventional baby name habits, choosing a moniker for her third child that’s not unheard of, but isn’t typically what you’d call a first name.

The mother of daughters Poet Sienna Rose and Jagger Joseph Blue (yes, a girl also) announced her firstborn son’s name Wednesday via her blog, telling fans:

Welcome to the world Lyric Sonny Roads Goldberg! Can’t wait to share our pics and moments in the upcoming months. Thanks for all the love and support.

Lyric? If that name rings a bell you may be one of the few, the proud, the best at virtually useless pop culture knowledge.

Actor and director Robby Benson, who once auditioned for the role of Luke Skywalker but is ultimately remembered by many for being the voice of Beast in Disney’s animated hit Beauty and the Beast, made the same selection for his firstborn child. For what it’s worth, his second son’s name is Zephyr.

Frye hasn’t yet explained if there’s any reason behind her latest baby name pick, but said previously of her second born’s unusual name, “Jagger was a name that we loved from the beginning of the pregnancy. We always wanted to be surprised by the sex and we felt like it was perfect for a boy or a girl.

“Joseph has a meaning that is so very close to our hearts. It was the name of our godfather… We have always believed in the names within our family having a deeper purpose and for us, Jagger Joseph Blue was certainly one that came from the bottom of our hearts.”

Reaction to Frye’s name selection has been mixed, with some loving the musical pick and others wondering what this world is coming to. In an era of Apples and Blue Ivys, where do you rank Lyric?
