Sources had tipped the celebrity stalking press that the youngster born last month would be named Sutton Pierce. However, E! News reported Wednesday that the birth certificate filed with Los Angeles County listed the name as Jayden James Federline.
E! said there have been other mixed signals in the month since baby Jayden was born. Federline refused to answer questions during a radio interview about the child's name or sex, and Britney was captured by the paparazzi buying pink baby clothes at a Malibu boutique.
Jayden is a Hebrew word that ranks 88th on the Social Security Administration's list of most popular baby names, E! said. Star couples including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi have all recently welcomed Jaydens into the world.
