David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka choose the name for their twins: Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.
But what do they mean? Gideon is an Old Testament name that, until recently, was neglected in favor of more popular brothers Adam and Jacob and Benjamin. The name stands for Hebrew “feller of trees” and is on No. 549 on Social Security popularity list. Scott was very popular in the 60s and means “from Scotland”.
Harper is a much popular name, rising to number 174 on the girls’ popularity list. Grace is also a very popular name these days, rivaling Rose.
