Good news for any of y’all looking to name your kid Carrot: you won’t have to worry about sharing that with Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff! Lena, who hasn’t been in a relationship with Jack for eight months, felt the need to tweet at Jack a list of the names they considered for a potential child. Oh, child…DMs exist for a reason!
Even though they broke up in December, Jack and Lena have remained friendly, even with the rumors that he had something with Lorde. It was reported their breakup was amicable, and while we don’t really know who gets Taylor Swift in that custody battle, the two have engaged in somewhat flirty behavior on social media as recently as June. I mean, that’s all fine and good because sometimes you just need some good ol’ fashioned ex sex, but this is, ah, pushing the limits, no?
Hey @jackantonoff I just found a potential baby name list we made in 2015. I could definitely keep this private, but then the world wouldn’t know that you suggested “Carrot” over and over… Love u!!! pic.twitter.com/ATWAV7KIC9

It’s a list that likely has the ghost of Frank Zappa hissing, “IMPOSTERS!” While names like Kelly and Jacki seem playground bully-proof enough, those two really have the Department of Children’s Services breathing a collective sigh of relief knowing there won’t be any Carrots or Rahs or Shogos signing up for pre-K anytime in the near future. We also get a clue that Lena and Jack must be Ricki Lake and Sara Lee fans, courtesy of the Ricki Lee mashup…and the potential of just using Sara’s baked good name for potential offspring. Ah, well. At least they didn’t go with Auntie Anne’s Pretzels or Orange Julius because those are MY dream names for a baby. Paws off!
