Actress Busy Philipps welcomed her second daughter earlier this month, but her choice for her baby’s name is causing quite a stir.

The “Cougar Town” star and her husband, screenwriter Marc Silverstein, have settled on the name Cricket Pearl for their newborn daughter,People” has confirmed.

But not everyone loved the unusual moniker, with fans and entertainment writers alike “bugging out” about the name, comparing it to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter, North West.

Busy responded to the haters last night, tweeting:

To announce the birth of her new baby, the ex-“Dawson’s Creek” actress also posted a picture withher new baby, along with the words “So this happened…,” a nod to an image of a positive pregnancy test with the same caption posted several months ago. Philipps and Silverstein also have a 4-year-old daughter named Birdie Leigh.

There's no word on baby Cricket's godparents, though we wouldn't be surprised if Busy's best friend Michelle Williams is named godmother.

“Cougar Town” will return to TBS for its fifth season in early 2014. Check out the adorable photo of Cricket Pearl and get the latest from Busy Philipps on Twitter @Busyphilipps25.
