Two months after the birth of her first daughter, Zooey Deschanel has revealed her daughter's middle name: Otter.

On the red carpet for her new film Rock the Kasbah, New Girl star Zooey announced her daughter's name is Elsie Otter.

"It's Otter," she told People, "like the animal."

"Sea Otter," her husband clarified.

The couple announced Zooey's pregnancy in January, and their engagement shortly after. Renowned for being a private couple, they announced the birth of their little girl in August at the same time as revealing they had got married in a secret ceremony over the summer.
