Nick Lachey Explains How They Chose The Name Camden

When Nick and Vanessa Lachey announced that they had named their son Camden – it prompted Kristin Cavallari to Tweet: “Apparently Camden is a popular name!”

The former 98 Degrees singer recently explained that their son’s name was chosen months ago. Nick told People, “It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin. We thought that Colin would be the name. And John is my dad’s name. But as we got further into it, I learned that Vanessa wasn’t a big fan of the name Colin, so we started looking for another ‘C’ name.”

It was a visit to Vanessa’s obstetrician’s office located on Camden Drive that prompted, “Hey, what about Camden?”

He added, “We didn’t really know anyone else named Camden. It was such a neat name. We fell in love with it and decided on it five or six months ago.”

The singer also cleared any confusion and stated, “He’s not named after the city in New Jersey.”

As for taking care of their now 4-week-old son – Nick says, “Diapers are no problem! I had a little training with the niece and nephew with diaper duty, and yeah, I’ve got no problem changing diapers. It makes for good bonding moments with me and the little guy.”

“We’ve been blown away and happy about the fact that he’s just been a good baby. He’s got a great temperament. Every day is fun. It’s a new adventure a new and we’re loving every second of it.”

  1. Vanessa is Filipino and Italian but she doesn’t look it. I saw pictures of her Filipino mother who is very dark and Vanessa looks exactly like her.

  2. I think its a great name and for people to get sarcastic over a name is petty and childish. It’s a name, just because you name your child that does not mean that you own the name.
