English rose Kate Winslet and her third husband Ned Rocknroll have shared the unusual name of their newborn son and it’s quite animalistic.

They’ve named him Bear Winslet.

The news was confirmed to PEOPLE by the actress’ rep.

Like adventure-seeker Bear Grylls and Alicia Silverstone’s son, Bear Blu Jarecki. So Bear isn’t as rare of a name as we thought. It’s not like weird names don’t run in this family, at least on dad’s side!

The good news is that Baby Bear has his mom’s last name and not his father’s. Could you imagine going to school as Bear Rocknroll? That’s a name that invites other kids to tease him.

Winslet, 38, and Rocknroll, 35, welcomed Bear on Dec. 7 in England. She is already mom to Mia, 13, and Joe, 10. Mia’s dad is her first husband Jim Threapleton. Joe’s dad was her second husband Sam Mendes.

Ned Rocknroll was known as Abel Smith before changing his name. He works for the Virgin Galactic project of his uncle, billionaire Richard Branson.

PopCrushers, what do you think of the name “Bear?” Is it too out there? Or is it ultra cool, hip and modern? Sound off in the comments below.
