Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's boys each have names inspired by a special location, with 3-year-old Zuma being named for the California beach "really close to where we live," Stefani said in a 2009 interview. As for Kingston, the couple knew they would be naming their nearly 6-year-old after the Jamaican capital ever since No Doubt visited the country to record Rock Steady. "We ended up buying this little Rasta hat when we were there, like a little baby one," she said in 2007. "[When] it ended up being a boy, we named him Kingston, and he wore the Rasta hat home from the hospital."
