Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves Name Their Son Levi Alves McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey 

Matthew and Camila have named their son Levi Alves McConaughey.

Releasing their son’s name to OK!, Matthew explained that Levi is another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible, and shared that his birth time holds special significance as well.

Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: “If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.”

Levi’s middle name is Camila’s last, as “we wanted to incorporate her family name” Matthew stated.

Matthew and Camila have also released the following statement:

“We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin’.”
—Matthew David McConaughey and Camila Maria Saraiva de Araujo Alves

    Best name ever! My first born son (13 yrs ago) is named Levi Allen and I still love his name. Amazing how many people pronounce it wrong though.

    Wow, I’m really impressed with the name they have chosen and the meaning behind it. I honestly didn’t expect it from Matthew McConaughey. Levi is a name I considered for my son when he was born. It also means “connected”, and I think they will be a beautiful, close and loving family. 🙂
