David Arquette is gearing up for the arrival of his son with girlfriend Christina McLarty. And of course, that means one very important task at hand: deciding on the perfect name.

The 42-year-old actor and the Entertainment Tonight correspondent attended The Art of Elysium's 7th Annual Heaven Gala on Saturday, Jan. 11 in Los Angeles and the proud papa dropped a few hints about possible choices for the little guy.

"I've been a bit cryptic about it," Arquette told E! News. "It's going to be the name of my grandfather used to play. He was Cliff Arquette, but that's not the name we are thinking of."

Let the guessing game begin!

A source confirmed to E! News in November that the couple, who have been dating for more than two years, is expecting their first child together.

Arquette already has 9-year-old daughter Coco Arquette with ex-wife Courteney Cox. This will be the first child for McLarty.

During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cox opened up about her ex-husband's growing family as well as Coco's excitement to be a big sister.

"Yeah, she's really excited," Cox told Ellen DeGeneres. "At first she was nervous, because, you know, it's a big deal. At first, I was nervous, I was like whoa, heavy. Now it's great and we actually all had dinner the other night, the whole family."

"It's a very unique relationship," the 49-year-old added. "All of us like literally, me and Christina and David and Coco. It's great though."
