Ginger Zee Wanted to Name Son Adrian After Her Dog – But Husband Ben Aaron Shot it Down
In an upcoming episode of TLC’s Since I Said Yes – a followup special to the network’s popular series Say Yes to the Dress — then-pregnant Zee details the naming process she and Aaron went through before settling on Adrian, now 6 months.
“I’d like to see him,” the Dancing with the Stars finalist, 35, explains in the clip, noting, “I had a dozen names that I loved, and he said every single one I picked sounded like they grew up on the golf course and never worked a day in their life.”
“Bunch of collar poppers,” jokes Aaron, 34.

Zee reveals that there was one moniker she was quite attached to, however.
“I want to name our son Otis — number one, I would like to name him after my dog that I’ve had for almost 14 years,” she explains as her husband scoffs. “It’s a great name, I’ve always thought that.”
After Aaron, who the Good Morning America meterologist wed in 2014, assures that the pair wouldn’t name their child after a dog, Zee retorts, “Otis is our joy though.”
“Thinking that I would love something more than I love Ben or Otis — and people tell me all the time that it’s gonna happen — but I can’t imagine that it’s real,” she contends.
