Michelle Monaghan and her husband Peter White welcomed baby boy, Tommy Francis, on Wednesday (Oct. 30).
Kara @ The Art of Naming's insight:

Would you ever use a "nickname name?"   Tommy Francis is cute but I think I would have prefered Thomas (but then maybe she opted for Tommy because Thomas Francis rhymes in an odd way.).  Congrats to her!
