Unconventional celebrity baby names (we're still waiting on some star to say they went with John or Jennifer) always seem to spark the question of where the inspiration came from.
New parent Matt Bellamy, who welcomed a son with fiancee Kate Hudson last Saturday, explained that their pick of Bingham "Bing" Hawn Bellamy is simply keeping it in the family.
The Muse musician tweeted, "For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt's dad. Family connections all round!"
The middle name, of course, is a nod to Hudson's mom Goldie Hawn, who has been with actor Kurt Russell for years.
"Mum and baby are strong and healthy," Bellamy tweeted. "Mum was a warrior" during the July 9 delivery, he added, saying that "Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!"
