Is it teething time for your little one?


When Adam Levine and Behati Pinsloo named their daughter Dusty Rose, many people wondered where on earth they had come up with the name.


Well, it seems Ellen DeGeneres had A LOT of influence in the choice.


While appearing on the popular talk show, Adam revealed that he texted Ellen with his choice of name - which she didn’t like.



In order to give him a helping hand, the TV host texted him back five other options, one of which was Dusty.


“I texted Ellen and I was like, 'What do you think?' She was like, 'I hate it. I think it's a terrible name,” the Maroon 5 frontman said.


“I was like, 'Cool.' She gave me like five names to think about: This, this, this, this, Dusty. You basically named my kid."


However, Behati was not that keen on it at first so Adam ran it by her “in the eleventh hour” and she said that she loved it.

"I ran it by my wife and she's like, 'Mm, I don't like it,'" Adam admitted.


"So I brought it back to her in the eleventh hour. I'm like 'Dusty's pretty cool!' She's like, 'I love it!'"


But what about the Rose part? Well, Ellen also had a play in that too.

"I'd already thought of Dusty, and then somebody said 'Dusty Rose,' and I said, 'Oh, that's her name.' And so I texted you, 'Dusty Rose,'" she explained. 

"If anyone needs to name their child," the Voice mentor said, "Ellen's really good at it."
