What's really in a name? For Nikki and Brie Bella, a lot!

In this week's issue of PEOPLE, the Total Bellas stars, both 36, discuss the special meaning of each of their son's unique names — and why they chose them.

Nikki, who welcomed her first child, Matteo Artemovich, with her fiancé, Dancing with the Stars pro Artem Chigvintsev, 38, on July 31, says she gets "chills" when describing her son's name.

"When I was pregnant, my trainer was talking about his son and this strength that he has and that when he gets knocked down, he gets right back up," Nikki explains. "And when he said, 'Oh, my Matteo,' I got alligator chills from head to toe."

"So I came home and I go, 'Artem, if we're having a boy, his name's Matteo,' " she adds. "I got this feeling when my trainer was talking about him. It means God's gift."
