In a world of Apples and Blue Ivys, Bobby Cannavale and his love of five years, Rose Byrne, opted for a name that’s both meaningful and unique when naming their son.

The Ferdinand star told ET! that he and his baby mama named the newest addition to their family Rafa to honor both Cannavale’s Latin roots and the couple’s favorite tennis star.

Cannavale explained his little one’s special name, saying, “I hadn’t given one of my children a Latin name yet, so I wanted to honor my mom’s side of the family. And, you know, Rafael Nadal had such a great year and we were constantly keeping up with him and watching all his matches, so we were like, ‘How about Rafa? That goes well with Rocco.’ And that was it.”

In addition to 1-month-old Rafa, the couple has a 22-month-old son named Rocco Robin. Cannavale also has a 22-year-old son—Jake—from a previous relationship.

A nod to family roots and the King of Clay? Sounds all aces to us.
