Ben and Jen will snub silly Hollywood baby names for something traditional

BEN AFFLECK and JENNIFER GARNER will chose a traditional name for their unborn child - because the actor hates "trendy" baby names so many Hollywood stars give their offspring.

The couple, who have a two-year-old daughter Violet, are expecting their new addition later this year.

But Ben has vowed not to follow in the footsteps of celebrity parents with an unorthodox name for their new baby, reports US magazine Star.

A source says the magazine: "Ben put his foot down and said no way to trendy Hollywood names. If it's a boy, he likes the name Benjamin, not just because it's his name but it's that of his hero, Benjamin Franklin."
