Zooey Deschanel is one of the coolest actresses out. She’s fun, she’s quirky and she’s also pretty private – which is also cool.
So now, three months after the birth of her daughter, Zooey has finally disclosed the bub’s name, and we’re so pleased that Zooey, what with her eclectic nature and love of quirky nail polish, has gone with a name that reflects that.
The name she and hubby Jacob Pechenik chose? Elsie Otter.
“Otter.” “Like the animal,” the actress explained to People at the Rock The Kasbah premiere, with her hubby adding, “Sea otter!”
The actress elaborated on Today, saying, “We just really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart. They use tools … they hold hands while they sleep, there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”
