Grey’s Anatomy Season 9: Will the MerDer Baby Be named Mark?
Last week on Grey's AnatomySeason 9, Episode 19: "Can't Fight This Feeling," we got the answer to a major question that’s been on our minds ever since we found out Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is pregnant — What's the gender? It turns out it’s a boy! Now for our next question — what will she and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) name their new son?
We’re not sure yet, but we do know one option we can cross off our list. Yesterday (April 1), show creator Shonda Rhimes replied to a fan on Twitter who told her she hoped the baby would be named Mark, saying, “it won’t. There was only one Mark."
Although we think naming the baby after McSteamy would have been the perfect way to remember Derek’s old BFF(and one of our favorite characters), we also agree with Shonda that there was only one Mark.
Besides, we’re sure the writers have the perfect name in mind for the baby — one that makes even more sense for Meredith and Derek to choose. What do you think McBaby’s name will be?
