Amy Adams Explains Her Daughter’s Name

Amy Adams talks about how she picked the name Aviana for her 7-month-old daughter on the Rachel Ray Show recently.

During the interview, set to air Friday, the actress said she and fiancé Darren Le Gallo chose to pay homage to her birthplace of Aviano, Italy.

We had picked out a whole bunch of other names as well and we had thrown around Aviana, but I was into more traditional names and thought that we would go that direction. But, when she was born we just kept calling her, ‘Avi, Avi, Avi.’”

Adams also admitted she felt more at ease than the last time she was on the show.

She exclaims, “Oddly enough, I’m more relaxed. I’m not nervous sitting here talking, last time I was here I was just a mess. [Aviana’s] so calm, I think she calms me down. She was born mellow … So I roll with her punches, she’s great!”

Asked about her holiday plans, the 36-year-old replied that they plan for a quiet Christmas day.

“We are at home, we’re just going to stay home and be really quiet. And hopefully keep it small and intimate,” Adams says.

“It’ll be fun! She’ll be more into the wrapping paper I’m sure! She’s really into eating paper right now, you know, because she’s a baby.”
