Lion is the name Alex O'Loughlin and girlfriend Malia Jones have chosen for their bouncing baby boy.
The tot was born Oct. 25 in Honolulu.
O'Loughlin, who plays Steve McGarrett in the Island-filmed CBS procedural,"Hawaii Five-0," also has a son, Saxon, 15, and Jones also has a son, Spike, 3, from previous relationships.
There was no explanation on why the couple named their son Lion. Did he roar like a Leo? Was in the inspiration from "The Lion King"?
Lion joins a growing roster of celebrities with kids with odd names.
Ocean, son of actor Forest Whitaker.
Tu, son of actor Rob Morrow. (Tu-Morrow, get it?)
Apple, daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
Prime and Blanket, sons of Michael Jackson.
Blue, daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Egypt, son of Alicia Keys.
Moon and Diva, daughters, and Dweezil and Ahmet, sons, of Frank Zappa.
And then there's the brood of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The girls are named Shilo and Vivienne; the boys are Zahara, Maddox, Shiloh, Pax and Knox.
What's your take on these out-of-the-box oddities?
