Celebrity baby name: Felix

Title of the TV series "The X-Files"
“The X-Files”

Actress Gillian Anderson, one of the stars of sci-fi TV series The X-Files (1993-2002), welcomed a baby boy last week.

She and her partner, Mark Griffiths, named their son Felix — which just so happens to be an anagram of “X File.”


The couple’s first child, born in 2006, was a son named Oscar.

Anderson also has a daughter, Piper Maru, with her ex-husband. (She said during a 1996 radio interview that the middle name Maru means “calm and gentle” in Polynesian and “ship” in Japanese.)
