Pink wants to name her maybe-son after whiskey


Pink is really excited about her pregnancy, you can just tell. She loves gushing about it, and unlike some pregnant celebrities who turn to weak platitudes to describe their happiness, Pink goes her own way. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Pink talked about potential baby names. Her doctor already told her that she’s likely carrying a girl, but Pink is already preparing boy names, I suppose in the hopes that karma won’t kick her ass quite yet. However, if Pink and Carey Hart do have a boy, it’s pretty likely that he’ll be pleasantly messed up too – after all, Pink wants to name a future son after her favorite brand of whiskey:

Pink, who is a little more than three months pregnant, says she and husband Carey Hart are halfway there when it comes to naming their baby. If it’s a boy, says the singer, their first child will be called Jameson.

“My dad’s name is James, and my brother’s name is Jason,” Pink, 31, told Access Hollywood. “[Carey and I] are both Irish, Carey’s middle name is Jason, [and] Jameson — we like whiskey. That’s a no brainer.”

There’s just one problem: Their doctor believes they’re expecting a girl. And, says Pink, finding the perfect name has been a struggle.

“We’re all over the place,” she says of the naming process. “I’m all about meaning, and Carey feels like he had a girl’s hair cut and a girl’s name, and he doesn’t want kids to have a weird name. I have to get him on the boat for originality, so I’m working on him.”

Even though she’s chosen a boy’s name that evokes a brand of whiskey, Pink says she’s not tempted to drink alcohol at all — even if the doctor okays it.

“You know what? I thought I’d be like that – I couldn’t even comprehend someone not wanting wine,” the “Raise Your Glass” singer says. “But honestly, I just don’t. I don’t want anything bad.”

If I didn’t have it in my head that she was naming a kid after whiskey, I would really love the name Jameson. It’s rather sexy (when he’s all grown up, of course). I approve. But I suspect Pink is going to have a girl… Captain Morgan, perhaps? Absolut Hart? Perhaps a daughter would just get the name of a cocktail: Mojito Moore-Hart? I kind of like that one.

    At least she’s not calling him Bud aka Budweiser

  2. krissy_kitty says:

    I like the name Jameson. That is my sons name although I spelled it slightly diff. No, he is not named after the whiskey. I’m Irish too and I thought it was a great name! 🙂 I think Pink is gonna be an awesome Mom! You know she is gonna have a girl so she can have a taste of what she put her parents through… 🙂

  3. Genevieve says:

    Jameson is a great name. Good for them for getting back together and being in love

  4. brin says:

    Love it! If it’s twin boys they could be Jameson & Jack Daniel.

  5. poopie says:

    LOVE LOVE THE NAME !!! at least they arene’t going for those awful overused TRENDY names josh, jason, et al

  6. Sarah says:

    I actually really like Absolut Hart. That’s pretty. lol

  7. aenflex says:

    That lil girl will teach her a few things that’s for sure. I am glad she waited, I think she is now much better primed to be a mother and I wish them the best.

  8. dread pirate cuervo says:

    The obvious name for a girl is Bailey. But the ultimate would be triplets: Bailey, Jameson, & Guinness & they would collectively be known as the Irish Car Bomb.

  9. Courtney says:

    this goes right in with their sense of humour so it doesn’t surprise me. if it’s a boy they could name him Jameson Liam David and if it’s a girl Jameson Natasha Ann

  10. Bella Mosley says:

    I like the name Jameson and I don’t understand why anyone would be so negative as to write a story trying to make something bad about it.

  11. spinner says:

    I love Pink & wish her the best. If a girl…she should name her Bristol Creme.

  12. Riley says:

    Pink looks like Tyne Daly with that silver hair. But I didn’t like it on Kelly Osborne either and a lot of people thought she looked cute.

  13. Samigirl says:

    I was in school with a girl named Mojito. No joke. Her sisters name was LaAquanesha. It was pretty ridiculous.

  14. D says:

    The title to this is pretty misleading.
    The whiskey part seems to be said jokingly.

    I like the name Jameson and that it has family ties to it. I’m sure there are ways to switch up the spelling of the name and make it useable for a girl as well.

  15. MarenGermany says:

    Love her. Always will…..

  16. caramia says:

    Pink can do no wrong, love her sense of self

  17. Bodhi says:

    Uh, yeah, the bit about naming her bean after whiskey is a jokey after thought. I really like Jameson! As booze & as a name! 😀

    LOL @ dread pirate! Irish Car Bomb… oh that makes me chuckle!

    Our Bean is due a little before Pink’s & while my husband don’t have a name yet (we find out the sex on the 14th! Weee!) I don’t think we’ll be sharing it when we do. I know WAY too many opinionated people who won’t hesitate to criticize whatever we pick

  18. JustBored says:

    I think the fact that there is a whiskey named Jameson is just a fun coincidence. She did have a good reason for choosing that name. Pretty clever actually.

  19. devilgirl says:

    I think the name has more to do with her father, brother, and Carey then it has to do with the whiskey.

  20. RHONYC says:

    she’s IRISH!

    that explains alot, lol! 🙂

    i love that lil’ spark plug. congrats!

  21. Ferguson. says:

    God, she’s not naming her son after whiskey. She gave her understandable reasons, the whiskey part is just a plus, and a funny coincidence; Pink is funny, she had to say something about it.

    I hate that everyone is concentrating on that part.

    Anyway, I love her, she will be a great mom! 🙂

  22. grisgrisny says:

    I was in Babies R Us a while ago and there was a little girl named Hennessy – awful. But I think Jameson is kind of cute.

  23. Genevieve says:

    IRISH CAR BOMB! lols

  24. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Love the boys name. How bout Tequila for the girl!

  25. girl says:

    I don’t particularly like Pink but I think Jameson is a great name. I know a couple who are great people who did the same thing. I am not even sure the whiskey part is a joke. It is a nice name.

    Side note, how is the doctor pretty sure baby is a girl at 3 months? Unless they did genetic testing, which would prove beyond the shadow of a doubt what the baby’s gender is, the genitalia isn’t even totally differentiated at the 12 week point to be seen on ultrasound. Maybe it was an offhand comment based on the heartrate (old wives tail, if it’s faster, it’s a boy…). Weird.

  26. Bodhi says:

    There are super duper ultrasound machines that can tell very early on. My husband’s co-worker & his wife have had several because the mommy-to-be is very high risk & they found out really really early.

    But I’m sure they aren’t 100%, nothing is, after all

  27. Kitten says:

    I like the name Jameson a lot and I like her thought process in chosing it.

  28. Feebee says:

    Love Pink and love the name Jameson, me think she may have been jesting just a wee bit. I’m looking forward to seeing her adjust to motherhood. The kid’s in for an awesome ride.

  29. craigc says:

    ok ok ok – she’s cool…

  30. Str8Shooter says:

    I personally like Midori…or Tequila. Oh wait…scratch that (don’t want confusion with Tila!)

  31. jenna says:

    I grew up with a kid named Jameson. He was the the goofy kid in class who was rather plain, but he has grown into a fine-looking 22 year old!

  32. Stephie2585 says:

    Personally, I associate the name Jamieson/Jameson with Jenna Jamieson.
    And then I think porn star.
    And tacky.

  33. hellen says:

    It’s better than Apple Martin(i).

  34. Lanette says:

    1 if my nephews names is Jameson i love it

  35. jc126 says:

    “Jameson Hart”. That’s a great name.

  36. Matt says:

    Tila Tequila or Jenna Jameson. Midori sounds more suited to Mariah’s baby.

  37. LT says:

    I knew a girl in college who’s name was Irish after her dad’s favorite whiskey. I also know a Jack Daniels, although I never confirmed if his name was based off the whiskey.

  38. wonderful says:

    I have the trump card: someone who named their daughter “Macey” after bear mace.
