You know we love a quirky celebrity baby name, and the one Uma Thurman chose definitely qualifies.
Although the 42-year-old actress had her little girl in July, her first child with fiance Arpad Busson, she's just now revealing the baby's name.
As Thurman's rep told People magazine, it's "Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson." Thurman's three-month-old, the rep added, is "better known to family and friends as Luna."
With a name like that, you know that Thurman and Busson didn't simply peruse a baby book, pick at random and call it a day.
"Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father," Thurman's rep said, noting that the parents plan to keep those reasons under wraps.
We don't think anything will ever top Jermajesty, Petal Blossom Rainbow and Moxie Crimefighter in our book, but Thurman gets points from us for length. We couldn't help trying to figure out possible references, but all we've got so far is that Arusha is a town in Tanzania, and Arkadina could be a reference to the character in Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull." Google couldn't help us with Altalune, though.
The "Kill Bill" actress also has two children from her prior marriage to Ethan Hawke, Maya Ray and Levon, and Busson, 49, has two children from his relationship with Elle MacPherson.
Let us hope that "Luna" does not develop a "tic..."
Did they not learn the lesson from Tikki Tikki Timbo?
At least they didn't name her Indiana Elizabeth Jones!
I can still hear Sean Connery at the end of The Holy Grail saying "We named the DOG Indiana!"
WHAT!? OMG!!! WHAT A STUPID NAME FOR A BABY!!! GTFO!!
Poor (not monetary sense) child. They were smoking some funky blue moon coming up with this name. Can you imagine if she gets married 2-3 times and dash on each name? She'll make the guinesses book of world records for the longest name...
Exquisite... love it!
How's that gonna fit on a drivers license?
David Letterman has a new joke to write about Uma, Luna, and Oprah.
fixed herself and her mess and now she's back on track.
I like her she has self esteem as a woman...she loved ethan but she had to leave him because he cheated on her
numerous times. ethan and uma are now happy findings others and i am so thrilled for her..she's a very strong
Let's hope the child doesn't become a movie star - the billboards won't be able to spell out her name.
I think these celebrities just can't be happy unless even their children reflect their kookiness.
Well, private schools might be best – the kids will all have strange names.
My daughter changed her name because she didn't like "Ellen."
Nathan Grossman was a Great banker!
Let Stanley Rosenthal out of Graterford prison.
will make it fit
Good luck to her daughter when filling out forms. It'll take all day and it won't all fit.
glad he's in school
require lawsuits...not a good idea
In other words.....this kid is in for a lot of fistfights in the school-yard.
She always has been a weird looking broad. She must have take one too many dlcks in the right eye
Billy Clarkeie was good!
We felt Clemmens was our best Superintendent.
Why celebritees gots to be so stoopid wit dere baby names?
She should have gone with Oprah.
thought she should be there...
Dude went from Elle to Uma? Sorry man, that has to hurt every morning.
Um.. they aren't married anymore moron. Did you read that was a "prior" marriage?
good job Pips
So they named her Rosalind but call her Luna? So why not just name her Luna? Or make Altalune her first name then Luna would sense. Seems like a waste of the name Rosalind and a confused kid.
what does decal mean?
You mean fecal?
In other words, its another ridiculous and pompous Hollywood baby name for a person that will never work a day in their lives, so it doesnt matter how ridiculous their name sounds to potential employers.
having A mark harm0n fantasy and very very tired...l0l
Luna...as in Luna-tic?
would be considered and older man for me..experienced, controlled and georgous
I can almost hear your thighs quivering.
he makes me quiver all over...
she seems mighty dumb in real life.
Liked her Kill Bill movies though.
Hmmm, she’s a big obama supporter but is bearing offspring with a one percent jew hedge fund manager? Sounds a little hypocritical. And that name is ridiculous. In school, by the time the kid finishes writing her name the time allotted for the exam will have elapsed
