Fans have been waiting eagerly for 35-year-old actress, Zooey Deschanel to reveal the name of her baby girl. Finally, the name is out. It’s Elsie Otter. What’s more to the name follows below.

The 3-month old daughter of Deschanel and Pechenik is bestowed with oodles of cuteness. The couple told People Magazine at the Rock the Kasbah premiere in NYC that they have named their daughter.

“It’s Elsie…” Deschanel spoke and which was followed by Pechenik saying next, “Otter.” When the actress said, “Like the animal”, her husband immediately added, “Sea otter.”


Elsie Otter was born to the couple in July. Guesses are right that the baby is a Cancer or a Leo of the zodiacs. The baby is the first child of the couple and was born in Austin, Texas. After the birth of the child, the duo was quick to announce their wedding in August.

The actress had told People Magazine in January that she was engaged to Pechenik and was expecting a baby. “Jacob and I are over the moon. We are so excited to meet our little one.”

The pictures of the baby have not been made public yet. But Lamorne Morris, “New Girl” co-star of the actress has revealed to People Magazine, “She’s an extremely cute baby.” She added that the baby has a resemblance to Zooey.

Elsie Otter has a cousin of her age too. The actress’s sister Emily Deschanel also had a baby in June. The “Bones” star’s first child, Henry is three and half years older to the her newborn son. When Henry was born, Zooey Deschanel tweeted, “I am super excited to be an aunt!” Emily Deschanel is married to ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ star, David Hornsby.

Elsie Otter is surely going to have good time with cousins until her other sibling arrives to the world.
