Finally, a name is revealed for the newborn son of Matthew McConaughey and model girlfriend Camila Alves. To OK! the "Sahara" actor proudly revealed the baby who was born on Monday July 7 is called Levi Alves McConaughey.

On the reason he chooses Levi as the first name, Matthew explained, "Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person." He added that there is also another factor behind that. "Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'"

Meanwhile, the second name is adapted from the mother's family name because they "wanted to incorporate her family name."

Matthew ended the personal message saying, "We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin'."

Well I am proud to see that Matthew McConaughey and model girlfriend Camila Alves, are just wanting to be real live people. I do not care what the childrens names are as long as they are both educated, loved & learn to return the love that their beautiful mother & father has taught them. For you butt heads that think they are "White Trash", maybe you ought to just take care of your own family like Matthew & Camila. Have a great life Camila, Matthew, Levi & Vida.
