At first I thought why did he name the baby after Penny's asshole dad?  I'd completely forgotten about the hobbit.  I'd still like to know if there's some significance to both characters being named Charlie.  It's not like they ran out of names and couldn't have used a different one for either character.

Hey everyone, here's a twisted theory for you...
For the record, I don't actually think this will happen, but it nicely illustrates the world we're living in now with time travel on Lost.

We will discover in an upcoming episode that Penny was adopted.
Then, towards the end of the series, Penny, Desmond, and Charlie will be forced to travel back 20 years before tonight's episode.  They'll have the island pretty much to themselves.  BEcause they'll have greater insight at this point, they'll raise Charlie, calling him Charles.
Charlie/Charles and Desmond will have a huge fight over something and then Desmond and Penny will die, and a very young Charles will bury them in the rape caves
Then, in memory of his mother (and because of his anger and hatred for his father) he'll take on her maiden name.  Widmore.

And 20 years later, in 1954 he's wearing a uniform with the name Jones on it.
Charles Widmore is Desmond and Penny's son, Charlie.  That's what this is all about!  I just figured out the entire thing.

Seriously...just having some fun.  ;)

hahaha!

however, penny being adopted would be a nice parallel to ben/alex!

i'm thinking there has to be a reason that penny's mother hasn't been mentioned/shown.

Wow, I never thought of that. I thought that they named their son after Charlie, you know, our Charlie from Driveshaft. I thought it was for sentimental purposes because Charlie was the one who first contacted Penny and let her know that Desmond was okay.  And he sacrificed his life right before Desmond's eyes.   So now I am really wondering what is the real story here.

I think baby Charlie could be Charlie Pace from Driveshaft.  Look at the mark on the right side of the baby's face.  Charlie Pace has the same mark in the same place only it's kinda hidden under his beard. Some shots show it clearly though (http://images.teamsugar.com/files/users/1/13839/15_2007/claire%20and%20charlie.jpg)

Coincidence?

Now that would be "creepy!"
I just took it to mean that Des named the baby after Driveshaft Charlie because of all they went through.
