What's in a Hollywood Baby Name?

Find out the literary inspiration behind Eva and Ryan's whimsical "Esmeralda Amada" and the kinda surprising place Mila and Ashton were when they came up with "Wyatt"


You know that the child of two people as good looking as Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling is incredibly beautiful. So it's fitting that their daughter (born Sept. 12) got her name from another stunning woman, this one from literature: "Ryan and I both love the Esmeralda character from the Victor Hugo novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame," Mendes told The Violet Files of the choice. And Amada, which comes from Mendes's grandma, means "beloved."
