Celebrity baby name: Locklyn Kyla

American actor Vince Vaughn

Actor Vincent “Vince” Vaughn — best known for his roles in comedy movies like Swingers (1996), Dodgeball (2004), and Wedding Crashers (2005) — and his wife Kyla welcomed their first child a few days ago, on December 18.

What did they name their baby girl? Locklyn Kyla.

Locklyn looks like it’s based on the male name Lachlan (sometimes spelled Lochlan, and other ways).

And Kyla, of course, is mom’s first name, which is nice to see. Fathers regularly pass down their names, but mothers not so much, which is too bad.

What are your thoughts on this combo?

Update: The name Locklyn debuted (as a girl name) in the U.S. baby name data in 2011!

Update #2: In the summer 2013, the couple welcomed their second child, a son. He was named Vernon Lindsay Vaughn after his paternal grandfather, Vernon Lindsay Vaughn. (Vince grew up in a family full of V-names, in fact. His sisters are Victoria and Valeri.)
