We got a sneak peek of Robert Downey Jr.’s newborn son, Exton Elias, when he proudly showed off some photos on The Tonight Show. The actor and his wife Susan welcomed their son in February – we think he’s such a cutie! We also love his alliterative name — double the E’s!

If you want to try an alliterative first and middle name like RDJ did, there are plenty of “E” names out there for boys and girls: Emma, Emmett, Ethan, Evan, Emily and more.

What do you think — would you ever give your baby an alliterative name? What names are you deciding between, or what did you end up naming your baby?
