No funky name for Marky Mark's kid



Actor Mark Wahlberg and his forever fiance (thanks Sean Daly!) Rhea Durham Mom_markwahlberg have decided not to engage in the baby name boggle of so many celebrity parents. Their son, born Sept. 16, has been named -- wait for it -- Brendan Joseph.

It was a pretty sure bet that the actor, who in a former life headed the group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, and Durham would give the tyke a fairly low-key name. BJ's sibs are Ella, 4 and Michael, 2.

BJ may have just one problem though: He might not get to hang out with cool kids Zuma Nesta Rock, Sunday Rose or Knox Leon.
