Coco and Saffron? Go to your pantry and name your kids after the first item you see? “Lipton” and “Ovaltine”….that will work.

Congrats to them. I hope Gwen has a girl. Can you imagine how insanely adorable that child would be. Her boys are so handsome.

Separately those names are adorable, but together it seems a bit “powdery”. Congratulations though!

Poor kid, awful name, its not even a name. Coco and Saffron? Hope they never come to live in France, here a coco is a lunatic, someone crazy…

Stella Bella- I like the name too. And if Saffron doesn’t, she can always go by Rose. 🙂

Anyway, congrats to them!
