Robert Downey Jr. & wife Susan Downey welcomed a baby boy today.


Exton Elias Downey



I for one find Exton hard to say, but what do ya'll think? ;)


*EDIT: Exton is a place name and surname derived from the English word tun (settlement) and the Celtic river name Exe.

I would have preferred Elias Exton.
Agreed with Katie that Exton is "hard" for me to pronounce. And no, I'm not a fan.

I would have maybe gone with Eaton, Eller or Eames rather than Exton.

Elias Downey would have been lovely. ♥

Eaton? Like 'I'm Eaton some food?' lol
I agree though, I know I'm known for liking weird names, but Exton isn't for me. It's like a combo of Exelby and Afton...

Eaton, more like for "Eton College".
Though Ethan is a nice, more common alternative.
