Chanteuse Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz, a Harvard business school student, got the gift of a lifetime over the Christmas holiday weekend: a son, Genesis Ali Dean.

I'm not going to jump to conclusions and assume that Keys and Beatz are the world's biggest Phil Collins fans. But really, who could blame them. I have always sensed that the couples' music was influenced by the British "pop experiment." But to name a child after it? A little much.

The name Genesis could, of course, also be influenced by another supernatural force: the Bible. The Baby Name Critic, herself a carrier of an Old Testament Name, will never frown upon an Old Testament Name for a new child of this earth. As God once said, "the Old Testament Rules and should be sown for timeless names for baby children!"

The Baby Name Critic agrees with God in the case of Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz's new baby.

This has been Baby Name Critic.
