What else would you expect from the quirky actress?

I try to make it a habit not to judge what other people name their kids because after all it’s a personal decision and what anyone else thinks about your child’s name really shouldn’t matter. I do find myself sometimes shaking my head a bit when I hear certain celebrities naming their children after fruit or directions or even animals, but what else do we expect from celebrities, right?

New Girl star and resident Hollywood quirky actress Zooey Deschanel welcomed her first child 7 months ago and revealed back in October that she and husband Jacob Pechenik named their little girl Elsie. They then revealed her middle name, which probably didn’t surprise many people given Zooey’s reputation for being a bit odd.

Now Zooey is opening up about her original choice of names for her daughter.

We’re used to celebs giving their kids unusual names, but Zooey Deschanel explains to Ellen exactly why she named her daughter after a super cute animal.
