Camden is not a common name, so how did Nick and Vanessa Lachey pick that for their little bundle of joy?

“It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin.,” Nick, 38, gushed to PEOPLE . “We thought that Colin would be the name. And John is my dad’s name.”

Vanessa, however, wasn’t quite on the same page — but, the couple still wanted to find a way to incorporate the “C” letter.

It may not have been the most conventional way of name picking.

During the pregnancy, the Lachey’s frequented their doctor’s office in Beverly Hills, Calif. — on guess what street, Camden Drive — so, naturally, one day a lightbulb just went off in Nick’s head.

“Hey, what about Camden?” he asked Vanessa.

Luckily, she was equally as fond of the name. So, there you have it! Camden John — who was born on September 8 — was actually named after a Los Angeles street.
