Giving your children unusual names seems to be a staple in Hollywood these days.  Gone are the days of David, William and Sarah and in are the Coco, Apple and Harper.

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy have followed the trend and have named their new born son, Bingham Hawn.

Bellamy and Hudson a little heat over the name choice, as many stars do, and the ‘Muse’ front man took to his Twitter yesterday to explain the name choice for their son saying;

“For those wondering, Bingham is my mum’s maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt’s dad. Family connections all round!”

Bingham’s middle name is ‘Hawn’, paying homage to Hudson’s mom, Goldie Hawn.

Bellamy assured fans and friends on his Twitter that mom and baby were doing great and that both were strong and healthy.
