Zooey Deschanel has named her baby the most Zooey Deschanel name ever

The definition of quirky, that one.

Zooey Deschanel has named her daughter something kooky (shock horror!).

She and her hubby Jacob Pechenik have chosen Elsie Otter for their 3-month-old daughter. Which is twee and adorkable and SO Zooey.

The couple revealed the name to People at the Rock the Kasbah premiere.

“It’s Elsie…” Zooey began, while Jacob finished, “Otter.” “Like the animal,” the actress explained, with her hubby adding, “Sea otter!”

Y’know, just to clarify.

The actress elaborated on Today, saying, “We just really liked the name Elsie and then we both love otters — they’re very sweet and they’re also smart. They use tools … they hold hands while they sleep, there’s so many amazing things about otters. They’re wonderful animals.”

They sure are, Zooey, they sure are…
