Claudia calls her kid Caspar

London, Feb. 3 (Reuters): German supermodel Claudia Schiffer has called her new baby son Caspar, continuing a trend among celebrities to bestow unusual names on their offspring.

The model, who is married to British film producer Matthew Vaughn, gave birth to their first child at an exclusive London hospital last week but did not immediately decide on a name.

“They have decided to call the baby Caspar Matthew De Vere Drummond,” a spokeswoman for Schiffer said today. “Both mother and baby are doing very well.”

Schiffer and Vaughn, who produced the hit film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, married last May in a small country church near their Elizabethan mansion in Suffolk, eastern England. The couple have followed a trend among the rich and famous in choosing a name that will set their child apart.

England football captain David Beckham and his Spice Girl wife Victoria named their young sons Brooklyn and Romeo. Oasis singer Liam Gallagher called his young son Lennon after his favourite Beatle, John. Schiffer’s fellow supermodels have also opted for unusual choices.
