    It is extremely interesting for me to read that post. Thank you for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more on this site soon. By the way, rather nice design your blog has, but don’t you think design should be changed once in a few months?

    The baby is destined for success. Stop Getting Ripped off by Cable and Dish Companies. Stop paying monthly fees. Put that money back in your pocket. Go to http://www.WorldWideTVonPC.com

    Will Ferrell's wife is Swedish. "Axel" is a popular Swedish boy's name. "Magnus" and "Mattias" are also Swedish names. "Axel" is also Elin Woods' father's name, and her son's middle name.

    Hate to disappoint you, but Axel is actually a Scottish name and has been for centuries–long before cars were invented.

    Axel is a fine Scandinavian name. My favorite uncle was an "Axel" (spelled Aksel at birth) who lived to 103.

    Please note that his wife is Swedish. Axel is a normal name in Europe, just like Magnus and Mattias. These are all very fine names for a child.

    Viveca Paulin is Swedish. Magnus, Mattias and Axel are all good, traditional Scandinavian names. I think it is wonderful that these children will grow up with strong names. Congratulations, gratulerer (in Norwegian), and grattis (in Swedish)!

    My hats off to her appearing on the final segment of the final episode of the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. My wife thought she was faking the pregnant look during the "Freebird" performance but it looks like she wasn't!

    Axel is quite a common name in Germany and Scandinavia. As are Mattias and Magnus. ...

    The child will never have a normal life with celebrity parents, having a "proper" name won't help.

    What's up with the silly, goofy, names these celebrities give their kids. Axel, are you serious! Is the kid named after Axel Rose or Ferrell's favorite type of grease, I guess Moon Beam & Ignatius were taken were they. I'm happy for them & I'm sure the baby is beautiful but please give the kid a break & get him off on the right foot with a proper name like Alex, Nathan or even better how about John?
