11 Names Chip and Joanna Gaines Might Choose for Their New Baby


“Fixer Upper’s” Chip and Joanna Gaines are expecting their fifth child and personally, I’m anticipating its arrival more than all of the Royal babies and weddings combined.

Chip, with the help of his friend Gage, recently announced that baby no. 5 will be a boy, so we thought up some creative, thematic names for their new bundle of joy and personally, I think there are some pretty solid options in the mix. Chip and Joanna, if you’re reading this, I do expect full credit if you choose to name your baby Shiplap.

11 Names Chip and Joanna Gaines Might Choose for Their New Baby:

1. Shiplap

This one’s kind of an easy joke, but is it weird that I don’t think it would be ALL THAT BAD as a baby name? I mean, it’d be pretty bad. But not like, “Chicago West” bad.

2. Silo

The Magnolia Silos are one of Waco’s biggest hot spots thanks to Chip and Joanna Gaines! “Silo” wouldn’t be such a weird name for a boy or a girl.

3. Baylor

Chip and Joanna both graduated from Baylor, making it a completely viable name option for their fifth baby.

4. Waco

As in Waco, Texas. Hey, if Kim Kardashian can name her baby “Chicago,” Chip and Joanna can name their baby “Waco.”

5. Magnolia (or “Mag”)

Magnolia is Chip and Joanna’s go-to name for everything from their Silos to their restaurant to their cookbook, so why not name their baby Magnolia, too?

6. Flip

Get it? Like, house flip? Okay, maybe a stretch, but it’s also kind of cute!

7. Jimmy Don

LOL, had to.

8. Harper (or Harp)

Clint Harp is Chip and Joanna’s go-to woodworker, so why not make their baby his namesake?

9. Steven

Joanna’s maiden name is “Stevens,” which conveniently makes for a pretty average name for a kid.

10. Hearth

Chip and Joanna’s Target line, Hearth and Hand, came out in 2017 and was a hit, so naming their baby after it would make sense.

11. Johnny

Chip did say baby No. 5 is a result of being at a Johnnyswim concert.
