Remember those rumors that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's daughter's name had a floral ring to it? The new dad just shut those down.

Even though Ryan and his wife never revealed their daughter's name, reports started surfacing after her birth that they named their baby girl Violet.

"No that's not the name," the Voices star told USA Today. "I don't want to get into that but, I don't know where that came from."

Ryan joked back in October that he had a unique name in mind for their little one, telling Canada's eTalk, "I don't want a name that's anything pretentious or, like, Hollywood-y. So I'm going with Excalibur Anaconda Reynolds...that's if it's a girl."

"I don't sleep very much. It's great. It's wonderful. But my brain is elsewhere," he added. "It's still so new that it's hard to conceive being away for more than seven hours at a time," Reynolds told the paper of fatherhood. "I had to go to Sundance this last week. I was more excited to get a good night's sleep."

Still, Ryan couldn't help but gush about fatherhood to Extra, saying, "It's weird to wake up in the middle of the night 45 times and always be in a good mood, in place of that. I'm not used to that, so that's fun."

Ryan and Blake welcomed their first child together just before the new year near their home in Bedford, N.Y.
