It turns out Adam Levine and model Behati Prinsloo have Ellen DeGeneres to thank for naming their baby girl!

Levine recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday, where he revealed how he came up with his daughter Dusty Rose's unique name. Levine says he originally had another name in mind -- which he didn't want to reveal -- and texted DeGeneres about it, who quickly let him know she wasn't a fan.

... What are friends for?

"So, I'm like, going through it, and I think I have a great name, and I texted Ellen and was like, 'What do you think?' And she's like, 'I hate it. I think it's a terrible name.' I was like, 'Coolll ..." Levine says.

DeGeneres replied back with her own suggestions for Levine, including the name Dusty Rose.

"You basically named my kid," Levine tells the 58-year-old host. "Because I ran it by my wife and she was like, 'Ehhh, I don't like it.' And then I brought it back to her in the 11th hour and I'm like, 'Dusty's pretty cool,' and she's like, "I love it!'" 

The Voice coach also says he didn't know dusty rose was an actual color.

"That's how I thought of it," DeGeneres reveals. "Because I had already thought of Dusty, and then someone said Dusty Rose, and I'm like, 'Oh, that's her name.' And so I texted you, 'Dusty Rose.'"

"I don't know anything," Levine admitted to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest. "But it's kind of part of the beauty of it, honestly. There are a lot of instincts, a lot of things that kind of kick in and switch on. It's a beautiful experience."
