Michelle Branch - on naming her daughter Owen

Michelle Branch recently commented on her daughter’s name, which is the quite masculine name of Owen. Michelle said that her and her husband, Teddy Landau thought that they were having a boy and Owen was one of the names that they had picked out. However Michelle says that "once we found out we were having a girl, we were still in love with the name Owen…we gave her a very feminine middle name – Isabelle – so if she hates it she can switch to Isabelle."
