Nick And Vanessa Lachey Explain Why They Chose The Name Camden For Their Son

According to Nick Lachey, there’s a good reason why he and his wife Vanessa decided to name their newborn son Camden (a rather popular name for boys these days, isn’t it?) Here’s what we’re reading from People Magazine:

“It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin. We thought that Colin would be the name. And John is my dad’s name,” Nick, 38, told PEOPLE on Tuesday.

“But as we got further into it, I learned that Vanessa wasn’t a big fan of the name Colin, so we started looking for another ‘C’ name.”

Nick, who frequented Vanessa’s obstetrician’s office with her on Camden Drive, one day suggested, “Hey, what about Camden?”

At this point, he says, “We didn’t really know anyone else named Camden. It was such a neat name. We fell in love with it and decided on it five or six months ago.”
