“A Thousand Miles”singer Vanessa Carlton is expecting a baby with her husband, Deer Tick singer John McCauley. This will be the first child for the couple, who wed last December.

Vanessa’s delaying the release of her new album until after her baby’s birth, but here’s a list of baby names to tide her over:


Miles: Who wouldn’t go“A Thousand Miles” for a son named Miles?

Liber: A tribute to her yet-to-be-released album, Liberman.

Macauley: Dad’s surname is cool enough to use twice.

Bill: Since mama’s no stranger to the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Carlton: When in doubt, use a family name!


Rocana: ‘Cause mom and dad rock n’ roll.

Harmony: Par for the course when you’re the kid of two singers…

Lyric: …and songwriters.

Belle: Folks will be listening to Hear the Bells, Carlton’s holiday album, around the time she’s due.

Indy: Maybe she’ll be an indie rocker like her father?
