Ben Harper and Laura Dern have decided on the Hindu name Jaya (JAY-ah) for their first born daughter. The name, which means "praise to God" or "victorious," was just recently chosen by the couple, even though the baby is 3 months old! Ben says that they waited so long because they, "didn’t want to pick the wrong name!"

They also announced that they are planning to marry sometime in 2005, after four years together and a long engagement. They have a son together, Ellery, while Ben also has a son and daughter from his previous marriage.

Thanks to Ani for the link! And thanks to ThinkBabyNames for the pronounciation!
