Darren Criss Faces Backlash Over Unique Baby Name: 'Brother László Criss'

Darren Criss and his wife Mia Swier have introduced their second child to their fans on social media, but fans are divided over the newborn's unusual name, 'Brother László Criss.'

AceShowbiz - Earlier this week, Golden Globe winner Darren Criss announced the arrival of his baby boy via Instagram. The couple, who also have a 2-year-old daughter named Bluesy Belle, have named their newborn son Brother László Criss. "M & D just delivered their follow-up single. Brother László Criss 6/3/24," Criss captioned the post. He later clarified, "... and yes his first name is Brother."

Fans swiftly shared their reactions, many of them critical of the name choice. "Did you name your kids after the blues brothers just in a super literal way?" one user wrote. Another said, "If you need to say 'yes his name really is…,' chances are you picked a bad name."

Others pointed out potential future issues, like confusion during official procedures or teasing on the playground. One commenter quipped, "Do you take Brother to be your lawfully wedded husband?"

However, it wasn't all negative. Criss and his wife Mia Swier received an outpouring of congratulations from friends and fans alike. "Yeeeeesssss! So happy for you growing Family!! Love you all!" wrote Matthew Morrison while Kevin McHale added, "Congratulations," with crying emojis. Rachel Brosnahan also chimed in with, "Congrats fam!"

The couple, who tied the knot in 2019 after eight years of dating, have been known for their creative pregnancy announcements. They revealed their second pregnancy in December by Photoshopping their faces onto a poster for "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again," complete with positive pregnancy tests.

Their first pregnancy announcement included audio of Bluesy's heartbeat from inside the womb, humorously captioned, "We've been making music for years. ... But this time we made a BEAT."

While the unusual baby names have sparked controversy, some fans have pointed out the musical inspiration behind them. During a 2022 appearance on "The View," Criss explained that Bluesy Belle's name was a nod to her grandfather's blue eyes. The imaginative and unconventional names continue to make headlines and fuel social media debates.

As Darren Criss and Mia Swier adjust to life as parents of two, they continue to receive both support and criticism for their unique name choices. For now, they are embracing the chaos and joy that comes with welcoming a new member into their family band.
