Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky welcomed twin boys last week, and now the mother of three has revealed the names of their baby boys: Tristan and Sasha. Writing in her native Spanish, the actress posted a picture of the brothers' feet on Instagram and told her followers, "They are already home. Tristan and Sasha arrived in this world 18 March just after the full moon. Complete happiness!!"

The newborns join big sister India, who was born in May 2012. The celebrity couple announced news of their second pregnancy in November and confirmed that they were expecting twins in January.

Ah! Baby feet!!! I just want to eat them! Baby socks are my weakness.

What's with celebs only posting their babies' feet? They're tiny and cute, but still.

Love the name Tristan! So-so about Sasha. And congratulations to them!

because people are mean about baby faces

Ooooo I like the name Tristan
setsuna16 25th-Mar-2014 01:52 pm (UTC)
Tristan is legit my fave name. If I had a son (unlikely as hell, because I don't ever want to be a parent, but nonetheless), I'd totally name him Tristan.

I love Sasha. It's on my list of names if I ever have a boy.

& love your icon, he looked so different on House of Cards
scottiesayre 25th-Mar-2014 03:34 pm (UTC)
Aw thanks, bb. He does look different on HoC but hair or no hair, he's still beautiful.

baby feeeeeet! teresa palmer did the same thing when her son was born.
iprevail 25th-Mar-2014 01:54 pm (UTC)
I'm not into either of these names, but whatev!
klutzy_girl 25th-Mar-2014 01:57 pm (UTC)
Sasha's a name for both boys and girls.
unacavaletta 25th-Mar-2014 02:14 pm (UTC)
it's a boy name, most of the time as a nickname, in russia
mrsdracula 25th-Mar-2014 02:18 pm (UTC)
it's the Russian nickname for Alexander. So, a boys name.
frozenish 25th-Mar-2014 03:02 pm (UTC)
And for Alexandra, so equally as much a girl's name.

But I think it's adorable for boys, as most Russian diminutives for boys' names are.
stonemesilly 25th-Mar-2014 02:49 pm (UTC)
In the States, it's used as a girl's name for the most part.
manita_bestija 25th-Mar-2014 03:04 pm (UTC)
it's a gender neutral name in south slavic countries
bloolikejazz 25th-Mar-2014 04:38 pm (UTC)
it's just a nickname for alexander
sallgoodman 25th-Mar-2014 11:00 pm (UTC)
Depends where I guess. In North America I've heard it as mainly a girl name, Eastern Europe always a boy name
starchain 25th-Mar-2014 01:58 pm (UTC)
Lovely names.
smokesinatra 25th-Mar-2014 01:58 pm (UTC)
I've known a bunch of twins in my life and there's always been a trend

Rachel & Rebecca
Ashlie & Leslie
America & Asia
sandstorm 25th-Mar-2014 02:01 pm (UTC)
I hope that last pair is doing well out there in the world against stupid jokes.
anchellada 25th-Mar-2014 02:13 pm (UTC)
smokesinatra 25th-Mar-2014 02:21 pm (UTC)
They were Mexican so America is actually a legit name afaik. Asia was the odd one out, lmao
saintvlas22 25th-Mar-2014 02:16 pm (UTC)
Rachel and Reene were the names of twin friends

'Reene' not 'Renee' because her parents didn't know English lol.
vodkadiet 25th-Mar-2014 02:21 pm (UTC)
lmao @ the last one. Tho if I had twins I'd give them cheesy similar names too tbh
ahkna 25th-Mar-2014 02:24 pm (UTC)
I knew two sets of twins named Nicole & Natalie.
mrsdracula 25th-Mar-2014 02:27 pm (UTC)
That reminds me of a trend in Turkey in the 50s. All siblings have similar sounding names.

yes, these people exist. My mother and her sister have very similar sounding names as well. I think it's funny but I'd never do it.
stonemesilly 25th-Mar-2014 03:10 pm (UTC)
I know two sets of Josiah/Jeremiah.
frozenish 25th-Mar-2014 03:10 pm (UTC)
I had a couple great-uncles who were twins named Rufus Lafayette and John Thomas.

I just didn't understand why they wanted to dump everything on Rufus Lafayette right from the get-go. Was it really surprising to anyone when he became a criminal?
_______awshucks 25th-Mar-2014 03:18 pm (UTC)
While going through applications at my job I came across twins: Alexa Joy and Alexia Joyce

dirtylook 25th-Mar-2014 03:26 pm (UTC)
Luke and Yoda. (yep, those twins exist)
frozenish 25th-Mar-2014 03:47 pm (UTC)
Oh and all the talk of Russian nicknames elsewhere in the post reminds me my host family in Russia had twins named Maria and Mikhail

called Masha and Misha.
thelilyqueen 25th-Mar-2014 04:08 pm (UTC)
Most often, yeah. I've got identical twins in my extended fam named Melanie and Melissa. Known a few (usually boy-girl fraternal twin pairs) though that didn't have any particular theme.
yurasama_love 25th-Mar-2014 04:41 pm (UTC)
I knew of a set of twins named Destiny and Dynasty.
4illornil 25th-Mar-2014 05:30 pm (UTC)
I knew twins when I was a little girl named Melinda and Melaena. I named a pair of twin dolls after them.

My stepmom and her twin are Wendy and Sandy. Boring.
redleigh86 25th-Mar-2014 06:30 pm (UTC)
ngl if I ever have twins I probably chose themed names too. Like two Irish names or names with similar meanings or starting with the same letter, etc something lol
lapetite_indigo 25th-Mar-2014 10:31 pm (UTC)
Lemonjello & Orangejello
lefteyepni 26th-Mar-2014 01:00 am (UTC)
for most of my childhood the only twins i've ever known were daniel & christopher

the funny thing is, i moved around a lot because my dad was in the army...so in arizona it was chris and danny...then in santa clara it was chris and danny...

kept wondering why these twins, who happened to be all different, show up with the same names...
aotearoagal 26th-Mar-2014 08:17 am (UTC)
I know a set of twins called Benson & Hedges after a cigarette brand.
slayer4915 25th-Mar-2014 01:59 pm (UTC)
A boy named Sasha makes me think of the way underappreciated Spyder Games, RIP.
stonemesilly 25th-Mar-2014 02:50 pm (UTC)
endingonfire 25th-Mar-2014 02:00 pm (UTC)
Sasha is a really nice boys' name tbh. Tristan is as well. I'm happy for them :)
nalaa1906 25th-Mar-2014 02:02 pm (UTC)
Cute names, I like it.
paarycia 25th-Mar-2014 02:03 pm (UTC)
I really like both names, nice job ^^

My (male) cousin is named Sacha (pronounced Sasha though).
therearewords 25th-Mar-2014 02:04 pm (UTC)
These are regular names, well done. I know both girl (Sasha) and boy (Sacha), but how's that in Oz/US? Is Sasha a boy's name?
qween_frostine 25th-Mar-2014 02:09 pm (UTC)
I know both girl and boy Sashas (spelt the same way) in the US, but I feel like more people here probably think of it as a girl's name. The first Sasha I knew was a boy in my kindergarten class, though, and it was short for Alexander, so I've always thought it could really go either way.

I think Naomi Watts' son is named Sasha/Sacha.
therearewords 25th-Mar-2014 02:26 pm (UTC)
Short for Alexander ..heh. I'm always surprised with how some people abbr. their names.
louisiane_fille 25th-Mar-2014 03:11 pm (UTC)
Friend of mine is married to a guy named Sascha. I've always heard it as a boy name, never knew it was short for Alexander though.
megalixer 25th-Mar-2014 02:36 pm (UTC)
Sasha is one of the standard nicknames for Alexander in Russian (and possibly other Slavic languages as well I would guess?) but as an American, I would probably assume that a Sasha from here was a girl unless there was an obviously Slavic last name attached.
stonemesilly 25th-Mar-2014 02:52 pm (UTC)
It's never registered in the top 1,000 as a boy's name but has as a female one since 1972.
littlepunkryo 25th-Mar-2014 03:15 pm (UTC)
Naomi Watts calls her son Sasha so maybe it's more popular as a boy's name in Australia in addition to being a Russian nickname?
pacehim 25th-Mar-2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
Why is that well done?
