Alicia Silverstone welcomes baby boy. And yes, his name is unconventional.

People has confirmed that the “Clueless” star and her husband, Christopher Jarecki, welcomed a baby boy into the world last Thursday. His name: Bear Blu Jarecki.

Was he named after legendary college football coach Bear Bryant? Yogi Bear? Unclear.

It is clear that in the current Hollywood baby boom, unconventional names continue to dominate conversation. Last week, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon revealed that they named their new twins Monroe (a girl) and Moroccan (a boy), prompting a collective response of “Wha??” from the American public.

Not every celeb goes the unusual route, though. Last week, Jay Mohr and Nikki Cox announced the arrival of their son, Meredith Daniel, while former Spice Girl Emma Bunton went with the decidedly traditional Tate for her just-born baby boy.

Who is the next pregnant celebrity most likely to go with an unusual choice once she gives birth? Our money is on Pink.
