Viveca Paulin And Will Ferrell: Son's Name Not a Popular Choice

Will Ferrell received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor Sunday night.

Viveca Paulin and her husband, actor Will Ferrell, gave their son one of the less popular names seen this year, according to a recent poll.

The couple named their third child, who was born in January, Axel.

Almost 2000 parents took part in the poll, which was on the BabyCenter website - a popular pregnancy and parenting resource.

Now that results are in, BabyCenter has announced its list of best and worst celebrity baby names for 2010.

The name Axel is on the "worst" list.

However, in Paulin's homeland Sweden the name isn't unusual.

In fact, the couple chose scandinavian names for their two older sons, Magnus and Mattias.

Topping the list of "worst" names was Jamie Oliver's son, Buddy Bear.

Alicia Key's son Egypt is also up there.

As for the favorite names, Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham's daughter scored well with the name Grace Margaret.
