I once referred to Behati Prinsloo as “the winner winner chicken dinner of Which Supermodel Wants to Marry A Douche?” I stand by it! Although I’m offering Behati and her douche husband Adam Levine my congratulations this week! After a seemingly low-drama, brief and beautiful pregnancy, Behati has given birth to a baby girl. This is the first child for both Behati and Adam, and the birth comes about six months and one week after they announced the pregnancy. So… drumroll, please… what’s the baby name?
A huge congratulations are in order as we exclusively confirmed Adam Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo have welcomed a baby girl into the world! Now, a rep for the Maroon 5 singer has revealed to E! News their bundle of joy’s unique and beautiful name…Dusty Rose Levine!
The pair had a lot of time to think of the trendy name as news of the pair’s pregnancy was announced in March, and just a month later, E! News confirmed they were expecting a little girl. “She knows what she’s having and she’s very excited,” a source told us at the time.
My first thought was “stripper name,” but that’s only because I love showtunes and Gypsy is one of my favorite Natalie Wood movies, and she played Gypsy Rose Lee. So, that was my first reference, from Dusty Rose to Gypsy Rose. But honestly, I don’t think strippers would go for the name Dusty? It doesn’t seem like an “en vogue” stripper name. So the second reference would be… Dusty Springfield, the wonderful soul singer. And if that was the reference Adam specifically wanted to make, I’m fine with that. There are absolutely worse things than naming your baby after Dusty Springfield. The combo of Dusty + Rose though… it sounds like a Laura Ashley print.

I think I have a blush called Dusty Rose.
Dusty rose was a hot decorating color back in the 80’s. You thought you were really “in” if your living room was dusty rose and teal blue.
Yes! That’s what I came here to say. Popular color in the 80’s! I think it’s a pretty awful name, but congrats!
I think Bobbi Brown at one time at that colour blush.. congrats but no to that name for me.
It was so cool back then…and now I can’t even look at it. So dated and overdone.
I was going to say, my parents’ bedroom was called that :p
I am guilty of having dusty rose carpeting with blue curtains circa 1988. Totally dating myself!!!
Bonus points if you had a border!!
Bonus points if you had a border & Balloon Curtains!!
Congrats to them on naming their kid after a paint chip.
Yes! When I was young I had “dusty rose” ruffled drapes and a bedspread from Sears.
Ha, Maybelline “brush blush” had that color in the 80s, I’m pretty sure.
Came here to say the exact same thing. Why on EARTH would you name your child after one of the tackiest decorating trends of the 80s!?!?!?
Dusty Rose sounds way too close to Dusty Rhodes for me.
Yes. Wasn’t that a wrestler back in the day or something?
Yes, Dusty Rhodes was a professional wrestler.
Hahahaha. Now that you brought that to my attention, that’s all I’ll ever think of.
(Rest in peace, Dusty Rhodes!)
Lol. That’s all I got to say about this name.
Yeah my first reaction was “Lol”.
I guess they want the kid to be a rockstar.
she sounds like she’s been named after a favourite colour.
Look how she’s slouching to be his height in the first pic.
S’all good Behati, own Your height.
I was going to say. Does he wear lifts on the red carpet? Because she is way taller than him in the candid shot.
Why not name her pollen?
Or Dusty Plant
I thought this story would disappear in amongst the Brangelina tsunami.
I can’t stand him – ultimate knob jockey – but I wish them all the best.
I never knew dusty was a name. I associate it with a state of uncleanliness such as dusty shelves.
Yes, that is where my thoughts went first as well. I love Dusty Springfield but my very first thought was…”dusty”? As in needs to be cleaned?
I went to school with a girl named Dusty. She was the only girl in a big family of boys, and the name fit, I guess. But she had very light curly blonde hair, and I could never break my mental association with dusty shelves, toys, etc. Her hair always just reminded me of dust. Because she was dusty.
Every time I hear “dusty” I think of this clip from Scared Straight:
omg, me too! When I hear “dusty” I think of the insult, so when I heard her name, I burst out laughing.
But congrats to the both of them!
I think of it more as a nickname, honestly. Not sure I’d use it as a name by itself. I’d always feel the need to tack on the Rose bit.
Dusty Rose sounds like a shade of pink that you paint a room with then change your mind later on.
but Dusty by itself? c’mon now. All I’m seeing is a cowboy in a plaid cut out shirt with boots and a missing tooth. I CANT, I’M SORRY.
Ha, my aunt had a cat named Dusty because of her charcoal gray color. But year I can kinda see it as a redneck cowboy name, too. 🙂
It seems like a white trash-y name to me.
When I hear “Dusty Rose”, all I can think of is the paint colour for Grammas’ kitchens around the world.
I like Dusty okay, and I like Rose (it’s my middle name,) but Dusty Rose brings up thoughts of terrible 80’s/90’s decorating colours.
Was gonna say.
Exactly, not those two names together.
I swear Dusty Rose is that off brand pink liquor they sell by the registers in gas stations
Dusty Rose is the shade of pink of the hideous bridesmaid dress my aunt made me wear when I was 6.
Dusty (rose) curtains that don’t let enough light in. That’s all I’ve got. This color just makes think of bed pans – you know those plastic, dusty rose colored ones.
Beautiful couple–can’t wait to see pics of the baby–and I think Dusty Rose is a sweet, gentle name. Congratulations to them.
I like it, and kids have been named a lot stranger things.
Agreed. Pilot Inspector, Apple, Zuma. I’ll take Dusty Rose over all those.
At least “Zuma” is derived from an Aztec emperor, so I can see why somebody with, say, Latin American heritage might utilize it. Pilot Inpector and Apple are jus weird for the sake of being weird, though. (Although, I guess Mr. Rochester’s dog was named Pilot?)
My first thought was Dusty Springfield. And yeah, combined with Rose it sounds like a lipstick or a blush, but I like it. Dusty Levine – sounds good!
oooh, SO close to Vanilla Ice and his daughter’s name, Douche-Levine. She’s ‘Dusti Rain’ to your ‘Dusty Rose’. Maybe just go hole hog and give it a ‘Dustee Rose heart star twinkle’?
I don’t know, what should a future President of the ‘My parents don’t take me seriously’ club be named?
Their next kids will be twin boys named Ethan Allen and Benjamin Moore.
He always was a douche, but I think he’s calmed down since his marriage. I honestly wish them both well.
The name is…. well… more like the name of a Levine / Shelton baby, but whatever. As long as she’s healthy it’s all good. They both seem much more low key and family oriented since they announced the pregnancy, so it looks like this will be a well loved and cared for baby.
Good for them. Even douches are allowed to grow up and be good dads.
“Madam Supreme Court Justice Dusty Rose Levine”
Nope nope nope. Name fail. That’s the test.
Haha omg! I’ve never heard anyone else say that!!! The Supreme Court justice test is what my parents used for me and in turn my husband and I used to name our daughter! So funny!
I’ve always liked Adam.
Dusty Springfield has a great ring to it. Dusty Levine? Not so much. But it is far better than a lot of celebrity’s children’s names. I bet they are over the moon.
I have a cousin named Dusty, so I can’t really say anything about that. I’m used to hearing it as a name and I don’t mind it. Although, he is a he not a she, so he’s not an 80’s interior design colour.
Congrats to them on a healthy, happy little one. That’s all that matters in the end.
Congrats to both of them. Hopefully this little girl will teach Adam a thing or two about how to treat women (although I wish it didn’t take her birth for that to happen).
When the baby name books just aren’t cutting it, refer to the Behr color charts.
It’s a little stripperish but I like the name.
I kept wondering why I associated this name with clothing. Googled and was reminded there is a women’s clothing boutique near my hometown called Dusty Rose.
I hope Adam has quit cheating on his wife, but I won’t hold my breath. He’s a jerk.
I was expecting better from an Adam and a Behati. Oh well. Welcome to Dusty Rose, may she elevate that father of hers.
Sounds like a really bad perfume….that smells like dusty dried rose petals and rubbing alcohol.
It reminds me of something my brothers might say when walking by and farting… “here’s a dusty rose for you” 😂
The expressions in the top pic are exactly the expressions they’ll show to the next groupie invited onto the bus…
Lol I just painted my bedroom wall dusty rose -.-
100% sure i heard about a stripper with that name. No. just no.
Dusty Rose isn’t a name that will age well. Dusty sits by her bedroom window, eating her mashed peas and waiting for someone, anyone to visit her in the old folks home. Maybe not, but my point is that there comes a time in one’s life when it’s inopportune to be named Dusty.
