Kate Winslet has answered the question many people have been asking since she named her son Bear Blaze. Why? Winslet tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that she once had a friend nicknamed Bear when she was young. She says she's always loved the name. She says Bear was "everyone's shoulder to cry on," so she decided to name her son after him. As for his middle name Blaze, Winslet was staying with Ned Rocknroll at his uncle Richard Branson's house when it caught fire after being hit by lightning. She says they wanted "something of the fire and so Blaze was the name" they came up with.
