    Default Minnie Driver's baby name dilemma

    Photo by: Mike Rozman / Warner BrosMinnie Driver announced her pregnancy on The Tonight Show – and now she's chatting with Ellen DeGeneres about the biggest dilemma facing her right now: what to name her baby.

    "I have a pretty silly name," the Riches star says on an episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show scheduled to air Monday. "Driver is kind of a hard name to put with a first name, particularly boys names … My friend sent me an email saying I should call the baby Duncan Driver. Then I can call it Dunk Driver, Pile Driver, Rally Driver."

    Joked DeGeneres: "So you’re hoping for a girl, you're saying."

    "I'm hoping for a girl," Driver answered. "I think it's a girl. Most of the women in my family get super girthy early on and I've got to say that's why I have this nice chiffon dress on. I'm fat. "

    Already "four [months] and a bit" along in her pregnancy, Driver, 38, tells DeGeneres why she waited to reveal it – even as speculation grew. "I didn't do an announcement because I'm not really an announcement girl," she said. "I'm wearing red knickers. I'm also having a child, not really my thing. So I didn't say anything."

    Another thing Driver did not mention: The father of her baby.

    Default Minnie Driver can't decide on a name for her child because surname is too silly

    Minnie Driver is stupid
    Minnie Driver can't decide on a name for her unborn baby because her surname is so "silly."
    The Hollywood actress - who is nearly five months pregnant with her first child - believes nothing she chooses will sound good coupled with 'Driver'.
    She told chat show host Ellen DeGeneres: "I have a pretty silly surname. Driver is kind of a hard name to put with a first name, particularly boys' names."
    "My friend sent me an email saying I should call the baby Duncan Driver. Then I can call it Dunk Driver, Pile Driver, Rally Driver. I think I'm just going to call the baby something like John Driver."
    Minnie doesn't want to know the sex of the baby, but admits she is hoping for a girl.
    She said: "I don't want to know if it's a boy or a girl. I feel like it's one of the last great mysteries of life."
    "I'm hoping for a girl though. I think it's a girl. Most of the women in my family get super girthy early on and I've got to say that's why I have this nice chiffon dress on. I'm fat."
    The 'Good Will Hunting' star - who previously dated Matt Damon and was engaged to Josh Brolin - has refused to reveal who the father is, simply saying: "I'm the public person and he can stay private."
    Minnie has also been previously romantically linked to John Cusack and was once rumored to be engaged to magician Criss Angel.

    I'm actually saying pretty much every name I can think of with Driver...and they all sound fine. I mean the only way I think it could be silly is if she named the kid something like Racecar, Drunk, or Truck. I hope the baby is Criss Angel's.

    Isn't Minnie Driver stupid as hell? I always think Mini Driver. As in some girl driving a Mini Cooper. It was intentional, right? Poor girl...

    I think anything she calls her kid will be fine, she can't outdo Minnie anyway.

    Well it isn't like she chose the name Minnie for herself...or am I missing something?

    I think she's just having a bit of fun here; there are tons of names that work okay with Driver...Mark Driver, Daniel Driver etc.
