An explanation at long last! ICYMI, Kate Winslet named her son Bear Blaze with husband Ned Rocknroll back in December, and in a recent chat with Ellen DeGeneres, Winslet offered up an explanation as to why she named her son such a unique name. She picked the name Bear because — in her words: "A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear and I just had always really loved him. And he was very much a bear. He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug, he was a great figure in my life and I just had always remembered him and so that’s where it came from."

And as for the fiery middle name? Well, she and her husband met in a house fire.
