Adele Baby Name: Singer Won't Share Son's Name Because It's 'Personal'

Adele publicly dedicated her Golden Globe for Best Original Song to her 3-month-old son on Sunday night, but you're not going to hear much more about him. The singer is keeping details about her baby -- including his name -- very private.

“I am not sharing his name at the moment. It is very personal to me... I am enjoying him on my own,” the superstar told a reporter backstage at the awards, according to People.

Though celebrity baby names are highly scrutinized, talked and tweeted about, Parents magazine says keeping monikers a secret is a trend in Hollywood. Actress Uma Thurman waited three months before revealing her daughter's name. (Alternatively, it took her three months to figure out how to pronounce it: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. welcomed a son in September 2012, but didn't announce his name, Rocky James, until mid-November.
