Rar! If he'd been given his father's (recently assumed) surname, Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll's newborn son would have the best name ever: Bear Rocknroll! As it stands, the little one's ursine moniker is still quite memorable. Welcoming their little boy on Dec. 7 in West Sussex, England, the Oscar-winning actress, 38, and the Virgin Galactic executive, 35, have named him Bear Winslet, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

For those bummed that the celeb tot didn't get the "Rocknroll" treatment, "bear" in mind that his father -- Richard Brandon's nephew -- was born Abel Smith, and officially changed his name a few years ago. He and Winslet married in a top-secret ceremony back in December 2012 after over a year of dating.

The Mildred Pierce star isn't the first Hollywood mom to go with "Bear" -- Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu, now 2.
