Oh gosh what a hideous name, but congratulations to them regardless.

I would have loved it had the middle and first name been swapped, but congratulations to them!

Congratulations to them though.

ARGH

Levi, Vida and Livingston. Just too close sounding.

But nice names on their own. Every little person is a blessing. I guess it doesn't matter really!

Maybe he's named after a city in Texas? I don't mind it. shrug.gif
I've definitely heard worse, much, much worse.

ETA: I'll agree the children's names are very similar sounding.

That is quite awful.  Especially if he already has a Levi.  It's going to be Livi and Levi.

ETA Why does everyone consider him to be such a hot spunk?  I don't really know him but he looks pretty yuk in that photo.  What's the appeal?

Um, because he is a hot spunk! I've noticed he's starting to age the last couple of years, and he's also lost some weight.

Camila, 29, joked that even as she put on pregnancy pounds, her actor husband, 43, was losing weight – dramatically – for The Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays the real-life Ron Woodruff, who contracted HIV.

He has lost a lot of weight for a new role he is playing (HIV person for Dallas Buyers Club). If u google it you will see that in this particular picture he has actually put a lot back on.  He looks really sick and horrible in some others. He also has a mustache which makes him look a little creepy. Normally he is pretty spunky. I didn't think his bub"s name was that horrible.

Livingstone is a town in Texas.  It's probably a town with meaning to him.  It's sweet.

I don't watch much TV/movies so I don't actually know who he is - Livingston doesn't seem terrible to me though. Am presuming it is a surname     or place name used as first name, and there's nothing unusual about that atm.
Will probably get shortened to Liv or Livi though and I agree with PP's, that is a bit silly with Levi.

When I see the kids' names together all I can think is Livin' La Vida Loca. Except of course Levi needs to be renamed Loca.

I was watching one of those morning show yesterday and they said that his kids names sounded like a Ricky Martin song

Livingston, Levi, Vida does fit with the tune doesn't it?
