Not long ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. No, it wasn’t cocktails or dinner or a sneak preview of her new film. I was just selling them stuff for the new baby. But it was still fun to see such a well known couple be so down to Earth. They were with their daughter Ramona, and I enjoyed the way they spoke to her. Big sister is seemingly slightly trepidatious to welcome a sibling, and from what Maggie was saying, I imagine the baby might even already be here.
We’re all on tenterhooks of course waiting for the name, though I couldn’t bring myself to ask her. Rumor has it the baby is another girl. What do you think they’ll call Ramona‘s little sister? I’ve ruled out Beatrice (and Beezus). I can see them with something old fashioned and sweet, perhaps a less serious name this time?
Ruth – Maggie’s full name is Margaret Ruth. How adorable would Ramona and Ruthie be?
Here’s my brother list, just in case:
What do you see them choosing this time? Do you think they’ll go with something Scandinavian from their heritage, something with a country cute bent, or something else?
