Though Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, were pushing for a Disney-themed moniker for their baby brother ("They suggested Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck," Garner joked), when it came to naming the newest addition to their family, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck opted for something a little more traditional.

"We are happy to announce on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," proud papa Affleck, 39, shared on Facebook.

Samuel -- a Biblical name with Hebrew origins -- translates to either "name of God" or "God has heard." The name has also consistently ranked in the top 50 most popular boys' names in the U.S., and was the 24th most popular choice for boys born in 2010.
