The Story Behind Uma Thurman's 5-Name Daughter!


Unlike most parents, who come up with a list of possible baby names and narrow it down to one or two, Uma Thurman and her boyfriend, Arpad Busson, decided to give their baby daughter all the names they liked best.

“We couldn’t quite agree on the name,” she told Jimmy Fallon on his show last night (as reported by People), so they gave her five: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence. “We call her Luna, so she’s lucky that way.”

Big sister Maya, 14, “had the best excuse, [which] was that I probably wouldn’t get to have any more children, so I just put every name that I had into [Luna’s],” Uma explained.

The names will come in handy years down the road, too. As Uma and Jimmy joked, it’s common for Catholic parents to name their children after themselves, so Luna can just draw from her own list if she has daughters one day.

Or maybe she’ll be the rebellious type – and name her kids Bob and Jane.

What do you think? Should kids have a laundry list of names if their parents can’t make up their minds?
