Baristaville’s Pam Satran, one of the women behind Nameberry, is running a celebrity name contest. What do you think Matt Damon and his wife will name their fourth baby?

Nearly two years ago we ran a nameberry contest asking you to guess the name of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s second child; now the challenge is to come up with the name of Affleck pal Matt Damon and wife Luciana’s fourth child, due to be born any minute.

Matt and Luciana have two daughters together, Isabella, age 4, and Gia Zavala, 2, in addition to Luciana’s daughter from a previous marriage, Alexia.

Will the new baby be another girl, or will the Damons finally break their streak and have a boy?  Will his or her name harmonize with the big sisters’ stylish Latinate names, or strike out in a new direction?  Will the new baby have a surname as a middle name, as do Gia (Zavala is a common Spanish last name) and Matt himself (his is Paige), or, like Isabella, no middle name at all?

The person who guesses the new baby’s name — and by association, gender — correctly wins a full signed set of our baby name books, including <em>The Baby Name Bible</em>, <em>Cool Names</em>,  <em>Beyond Ava & Aiden</em> and <em>Cool Irish Names</em>.   If no one guesses the name exactly, we’ll choose the winner by whoever comes closest, in the opinion of the judges aka Pam and Linda.

Head over to Nameberry to enter your guess and don’t steal mine–Ava.
