In the latest issue of Hello! Canada Magazine, Gwyneth Paltrow, 39, who's busy promoting her new movie The Avengers (can't wait to see it — Chris Evans, LOVE, woooo!), finally opens up about her daughter's name, APPLE!

In a candid interview with the mag, Gwyneth explains that it was all her hubby Chris Martin's idea! Aha! Here are the relevant interview snippets:

On her penchant for "unusual baby names"....
"I know. People did talk about Apple a lot! My husband named her."

On how she reacted when Chris suggested it....
"I loved it straightway. I thought it was so unique and sounded cool. She is nearly eight now and it fits her so perfectly. I can't imagine her being called anything else."

On if Apple ever asked about why they gave her the name....
"Yeah, and I [said], 'Ask you father!'"
