So it looks like Adam Levine’s daughter got her name from Ellen DeGeneres

Pregnant? Well, put down that baby naming book, and consult Ellen DeGeneres. It was just revealed that Adam Levine’s daughter, Dusty Rose, was named by Ellen! It looks like the talk show host is actually quite attached to this little baby, which probably makes her much like an honorary Aunt.

"He sends me pictures of her. She is adorable," DeGeneres said during her Thursday show. "If a day goes by, I'm like, 'Where is the baby? I'm jonesing for a baby picture.'"

Levine was having trouble with baby names, and decided to ask his famous pal for a bit of inspiration.

"The name game is tough game. It's a very hard, arduous [game]. Imagine you're writing the best song you've ever written in your life and you have to name it," Levine lamented.

 Luckily, DeGeneres came through in a pinch.

While Levine had an idea on board, DeGeneres was super quick to veto.

"I texted Ellen and I was like, 'What do you think?'" Levine remembered. "She was like, 'I hate it. I think it's a terrible name. I was like, 'Cool.' She gave me like five names to think about: This, this, this, this, Dusty. You basically named my kid."

(Anyone else curious as to what the name could have been?)

So, it’s sweet that little Dusty Rose will always have a solid story behind her name. We hope that Levine and DeGeneres stay close, and that Dusty’s bond with her keeps growing stronger!
