During an appearance on Wednesday night, the star of The Ranch weighed in on potential monikers for the son he and wife Mila Kunis are expecting. The couple are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Wyatt Isabelle, and are looking for a in the same way offbeat name. But maybe not that offbeat.
Kutcher told that his creative name suggestion “didn’t fly” with Kunis. We can’t imagine why not.
“There was a rallying cry from a collective that believed in the name Hawkeye,” the actor shared.
Not as in Hawkeye, the only Avenger who doesn’t really have super powers. As in the mascot for the University of Iowa, a nod to Kutcher’s home state.
There’s also Benjamin “Hawkeye” Pierce, the army doctor played by Alan Alda on M*A*S*H.
“Like, he could be a doctor,” Kutcher reasoned.
Luckily, Mama Kunis intervened.
“It didn’t cross the Mila threshold,” the dad-to-be admitted. “It came to the threshold but it got knocked out.”
Good work, Mila. Everyone knows the baby should obviously be named Fez.
