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.
