Zooey Deschanel has revealed her daughter's adorable name.

Zooey Deschanel has finally shared her baby daughter’s name with the world – and it’s as quirky and sweet as you’d expect from the lovable actress.

The New Girl star recently revealed to PEOPLE that she named her daughter Elsie Otter.

Elsie was born in Austin, Texas in late July.

She is the first child of Deschanel and her husband, Jacob Pechenik.

The couple announced their engagement in January, and news of their top-secret wedding broke in early August.

The famously private couple chose not to know their baby's gender before the birth.

In March, Deschanel, 35, told Jimmy Kimmel, “We are going to be surprised. It’s more fun, you know? Make it into a game.”

While we haven't seen any baby pictures yet, rest assured that little Elsie is one cute baby.

Deschanel's New Girl co-star Lamorne Morris told PEOPLE that she took after her mum.

“She’s an extremely cute baby...She looks like Zooey.” We can't wait to see for ourselves...

Deschanel and Pechenik are just the latest couple to jump on the vintage-inspired baby name trend.

In Australia, the most popular baby names at the moment are all classic and traditional - including Oliver, William and Jack for boys and Olivia, Charlotte and Mia for girls.

And celebrities are increasingly choosing old-school names - Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel named their son Silas, while Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis opted for Otis.

Congratulations Zooey - and welcome to motherhood.
