Adam Levine Talking About Daughter's Name on Ellen 2016

Adam Levine Reveals the Surprising Inspiration Behind Daughter Dusty Rose's Name

After nearly scaring the pee out of people in an epic bathroom prank, Adam Levine sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to chat about his 1-month-old daughter, Dusty Rose, on her show on Thursday. The Maroon 5 frontman welcomed his baby girl with wife Behati Prinsloo in September, and the couple gave fans a peek at Dusty with a gorgeous Instagram photo of her soon after. What they hadn't revealed until now, however, is the origin of their daughter's name. Apparently they owe it all to Ellen! After she joked about Dusty Rose being "a beautiful colour," she told the audience how she passed along the suggestion to Adam and Behati. "I had already thought of Dusty, and then someone mentioned 'Dusty Rose,' and I was like, 'Oh, that has to be her name.' Then I texted [Adam]." Although Behati initially nixed the name, she eventually came around, and the rest is adorable history. Apparently if you need help naming your child, Ellen's the one to do it.
