Also known as: the one where Ross wasn't around to "veto".

Last week, Ryan Reynolds finally confirmed the name of his and Blake Lively's 3-month-old daughter as James.

This adorable announcement came after much speculation that the couple had named the baby Violet.

While the world has been celebrating this super cute, unique name, everyone has so far ignored the fact that Rachel Green in Friends came up with it first.

Sadly, James is cruelly rejected by Ross, who obviously knows the name is still well before its time.


And, as we all know, the perfect name for Ross and Rachel's baby girl is, of course, Emma.

Other names brainstormed by Rachel and Ross included Sandrine, Rain, Darwin, Thatcher, and Ruth.


So, never fear, there are still plenty of Friends-inspired options up for grabs.
