Why Elton & David Named Their Baby Zachary

We just couldn't be happier for Sir Elton John and David Furnish now that they've welcomed the newest addition to their family: Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John.

Geez! That's a mouthful! But actually, its a pretty normal name for a Hollywood star to give his kid. So, that made us a bit curious about how Elton and David decided on it. So we did some digging and this is what we found out. Elton explained to one source:

"A friend gave us a book of baby names, and we started to flick through it, but we have always loved the name Zachary and kept coming back to it. In the end, we looked at each other, and put the book back on shelf, and said, "This is it!'"

So traditional!

We bet some other Hollywood kiddies wished their parents took this route!

    I WONDER WHO'S BREAST FEEDING? DAVID LOOKS TO BE A SMALL "C" CUP, ELTON IS DEFINITELY AN "F" CUP, I WONDER IF THEY HANG TO HIS KNEES :)

    Elton John a "Hollywood star"? How do you figure? Does he live in Hollywood? Does he act in or produce/direct Hollywood films?

    and yes, babies need breastmilk, I hope he and Neil Patrick Harris are buying the banked stuff. or getting Elizabeth Hurley and Salma Hayek to donate.

    Shouldn't the child's last name be Dwight instead of John? That's Elton's artist name, right?

    Elton John is not a Hollywood star - he is a singer, I don't know what you're taking Perez but you need to come back to earth
