Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner

Violet, Seraphina and...who?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have already proven that they don't mind straying a bit from the classics for their child-naming proclivities, but did they switch up their technique for their new baby boy?

You may be surprised. The couple today shared the moniker they chose for their now two-day-old son—and it truly seems to be a mutual collaboration. So what is it?

It's Samuel Garner Affleck!

"We are happy to announce that on February 27, Jennifer gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Samuel Garner Affleck," Affleck posted on his official Facebook page this morning.

The first of the brood to have scored mama's maiden name as his middle moniker, there was no further comment or explanation of the strong, classic, and dare we say New England-appropriate moniker (Sam Adams. Sam Malone. Sam Affleck.) Hey, you can take the man out of Boston, but you can't take the Boston out of the man. Or baby boy, it would seem.

Little Sammy joins big sisters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, in the Bennifer brood. Congrats to the happy family!
