Yay!–I love those Redhead genes are strong 🙂

I bet he’s adorable, red hair is just gorgeous. LOVE his name, very cool and I think it goes well with his big sister’s name too.

Jana on

Weird name but whatever….unique names tend to be the best! Congrats to them:)

Serah on

No clue who they are but congrats! babies are a blessing.

Kelly on

So happy for them! Was ecstatic when she had her first. Big fan of the Distillers when I was a teenager and a fan of her husband’s band as well. Spinnerette are also great. Congrats!

Susan on

Congratulations to my favorite rock couple. Red hair rules !!!!!

Mallory on

That’s a pretty cool name! Congrats to them!

Congrats to them. I love the name and was considering it for my boy who was born at the end of last year.

I was also considering Ronan. Have to say I’m glad, though, I didn’t pick either because celebs ended up going with those names for their kids and I wouldn’t want people to think I just copied them!

Serah- I was thinking the same thing. I have no clue who these two are but many congratulations to them. I love the name they chose. I used to know someone named Orren but haven’t heard that name in a very long time. Great choice.

Don’t know these two either but Orrin? LOVE IT! Never heard this name but Orrin Homme (last name (not first name) French pronounced: [omm] – which means ‘man’), sounds great – would translate like ‘Orinom’! (o: Good flow, me thinks!

Ahhhh! Someone finally stole my potential baby name!! I’m shocked! I have loved the name Orrin for ages (and I get made fun of by everyone I know for it too!) and am glad that someone has used it! 🙂 Love it! Love red heads too! 🙂

According to Nameberry, Orrin is a variation of Oren, which is Hebrew for “pine tree.” It’s a rather popular name in Israel. Somewhat of an ironic choice considering that Josh is Scandinavian and Brody is an Australian of European descent.

my girlfriend’s son’s name is orin, so it’s grown on me over the years. it’s unusual, but bizarre or difficult.

it’s really not that “ironic” as it has many meanings, including pale or light skinned in scottish. although personally, i think it would be badass to be named after a superhero (aquaman).

Congrats to them! Baby, you make my heart beat faster. 🙂

I’d hardly call Josh Scandinavian? I’m pretty sure he sees himself as an american?

Orrin/Oren is an Israeli/Hebrew name, but it also is a biblical name. So anyone with any Christian heritage wouldn’t really be crossing cultures to use it (not that I have anything against someone crossing cultures to name their kids, anyway).

I don’t know the religion of the Hommes/Dalles but I don’t recall reading anything about them being Jewish or atheists or anything else other than Christian (like most of America).

SC on

I believe Orrin is his grandfather’s name.

Brooklyn on

I actually kind of like the name. I’ve always loved Ryder but I’ve never really heard of Orrin. Congrats to them.

My son’s name is Orrin Forrest. He is now 36 yrs old. One of the nicest, and best looking men you will ever meet!
