Bobby Brown’s newborn has a name perfectly fitting for the daughter of an R&B king!
The birth certificate reveals the baby girl’s name as Bodhi Jameson Rein Brown.
Etheredge was induced last week at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital and gave birth at 10:24 p.m. PT on Thursday, July 9, as TMZ reported. Bodhi is Etheredge’s second child — she shares five-year-old son Cassius with Brown — and Brown’s sixth.
While Bodhi is a bit of an unusual name, it should sound still familiar to pop culture fans: Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox gave their son, born Feb. 24, 2014, the moniker Bodhi Ransom; celebrity chef Tom Colicchio blessed his almost six-year-old son Luka Bodhi; and it’s also the first name of Patrick Swayze’s infamous character in the now cult classic Point Break.
The name Bodhi means “enlightenment” or “awakening” in Sanskrit. It is a Buddhist concept associated with the state of nirvana, as Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, was said to have received enlightenment under a large fig known as a Bodhi tree.
