Awkwardmessages.com posted this photo of baby Hashtag (with mum's name hidden). Since there is no name given to the mother nobody has been able to verify the birth (or the name!) .
Uma Thurman gave birth to a baby girl on July 15. But for three months she and her beau, French businessman Arpad Busson, have kept quiet publicly about their daughter's full name.
On Wednesday, however, the Smash actress, 42, finally shared her little girl's given name -- and it's definitely noteworthy.
"I would like to announce Uma and Arki's daughter’s name for the first time officially: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as Luna," the actress’s rep Gabrielle Kachman tells People.
Unlike fellow celebs with interestingly named children, Thurman will not be elaborating about the origins behind baby Luna's name, but her rep does explain: "Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father."
Son of Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki, born May 2011
What’s a nice girl doing naming her kid Bear Blu? The only bears we know live in the zoo. Blu is actually a nice sounding name. But Bear?
Son of Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, born February 7, 2010
Granted, it's not Pilot Inspektor–crazy, but Exton Elias certainly ranks among the more unusual baby names we've heard. For starters, there's the alliteration and the strong "x" sound -- which will likely end up being the kid's nickname. ("Ex" or "X" or even "E.E.") The name is a standout -- we're just not sure it's in a good way.
Son of Jamie Oliver and Jools Oliver, born September 15, 2010
We love Jamie Oliver and his healthy food revolution, but when it comes to baby names, he and his wife clearly can't decide on one (or even two) menu options. Buddy Bear Maurice is the newest thrice-named Oliver child, joining sisters Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela and Petal Blossom Rainbow -- who shares her name with a My Little Pony toy.
Daughter of Penn Jillette and Emily Zolten, born June 2005
What, you expected something traditional from a comedian/illusionist? We can kind of get on board with the name Moxie for a spunky little girl -- Moxie's got moxie! -- unless, of course, it turns out that she isn't spunky. But CrimeFighter? That's just saddling your kid with a whole lot of kookiness. Jillette explained, "We chose her middle name because when she's pulled over for speeding she can say, 'But officer, we're on the same side. My middle name is CrimeFighter.'" Ohhh, okay. That totally makes sense now. Not.
Daughter of Soleil Moon Frye and Jason Goldberg, born August 2005
When your mom was a child star named Soleil Moon Frye best known for playing a character named Punky Brewster, there’s no way you’re going to be a Jane or a Mary. Even her mom admits that because of her unusual moniker they had to “come up with something different.” Frye and her producer husband call their daughter Poe for short.
Son of Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim, born October 3, 2005
Every parent thinks their kid is awesome -- but Cage must think his son is a superhero. That, or he's the world's biggest Superman fan, because he gave his child the hero's birth name. As of yet, no world on whether the boy has unnatural strength or the ability to fly.
Daughter of Jason Lee and Ceren Alkac, born August 10, 2008
With a big brother named Pilot Inspektor, it'd be hard for little Casper to out-weird her sibling in the name department. And if she were a boy, she wouldn't even be on this list -- after all, Casper (or Caspar) is hardly unheard of for a boy's name. But she's not. She's a she. And her parents kept her name under wraps (from the media, anyway) for three freakin' years. We sorta understand why.
Son of Andrew Taylor and Rachel Griffiths, born November 2003
When we hear the word Banjo, the first thing we think of The Beverly Hillbillies or, worse, Deliverance—not a cute kid. But the Brothers & Sisters actress and her artist hubby named their son (shown with Mom in 2007) after the famous Banjo A.B. Paterson. With any luck, Banjo and Soleil Moon Frye’s daughter Poet will get together and cause a ruckus.
Son of Shannyn Sossamon and Dallas Clayton, born May 2003
Since her own mother couldn’t spell “Shannon” correctly, is it any wonder that the Knight’s Tale beauty opted for a nutty name? But here’s the kicker: She and her baby’s daddy never actually considered real names. “We wanted a word…so my boyfriend read through the dictionary three or four times. We were going to call him Science, but thought it might get shortened to Sci, as in Simon.” Hence the addition of Audio. And to think the rest of us look to the iVIllage babynamer for inspiration.
Son of Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf, born September 2003
The My Name is Earl funnyman gave his son (in this photo from 2007) the most infamous celebrity baby name ever! Apparently he and his baby’s mama swiped it from a lyric in the song "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot" by the indie band Grandaddy. Making big life decisions based on any rock song seems stupid, but just look at that title. What exactly were they trying to say about their son?
Daughter of Rob Morrow and Debbon Ayer, born April 2001
While TV star Rob Morrow said that this kind of goofy handle is “a tradition” in his wife’s family—her name is Debbon Ayer, debonair, get it?—every time we hear Tu Morrow’s name we giggle. And we bet she does, too (shown here in this 2007 family photo). At least they never had a son. Rob had threatened to name him Bone! (Say it out loud a few times. You’ll get it).
Son of Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Oaziaza, born October 2000
Jermajesty (we can’t even type that without shaking our heads) has two strikes against him: His name is literally a joke, and it’s not even a real word! At least most of the other kooky monikers are in the dictionary (just ask Audio Science). Plus, what’s his nickname? Jerm? Jest? We keep waiting for his parents to tell him they were just kidding.
Sons of Robert Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellan, Born September 1995, April 1997, January 1999
There’s one thing we know about Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez: He loves alliteration! All five of his kids have names that begin with R, so add daughter Rhiannon and son Rogue to that list. He clearly approached the whole baby-naming process in a tongue-in-cheek way. He told Jay Leno, “Once you name your first kid Rocket, you can’t name your next kid Marty.” Fair enough. Of course, “Marty” might have grown up to be a doctor, lawyer or dentist. Rocket, Rebel and Rogue sound like they’ll end up tending bar somewhere.
Son of André 3000 and Erykah Badu, born November 1997
Considering that Victoria and David Beckham recently named their daughter Harper Seven, perhaps the hip-hop stars were ahead of their time. Then again, Seven’s half-sisters are named Mars Merkaba and Puma Sabti, so maybe Badu just likes weird names. We do feel kind of bad for the boy (shown in this photo from 2005), and not just because seven eight nine. Since dad is 3000 and he’s only seven, we fear he’ll always be trying to measure up.
Daughter of Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis, born December 1994
Woody Allen also named his son Satchel, so you might think it’s an homage or a movie director thing. Nope. The auteurs’ offspring is named for legendary African-American baseball star Satchel Paige. Lee’s wife was the one who picked out the moniker. "She came up with the name on her own…[and] she's not the baseball fan, I am."
Sons of John Cougar Mellencamp and Elaine Irwin, born 1995 and 1994
With an un-cool name like Mellencamp, the rocker had no choice but to try to be super-cool with the name choices for his kids (shown here in 2008). So we understand why he wanted to give his son a strong, masculine moniker like Hud—although it’s kind of disconcerting when you find out that he’s named for Paul Newman’s ruthless, womanizing character in the movie of the same name. But Speck is just unfortunate, diminutive and unimportant. That said, apparently he’s named for John’s beloved grandfather Speck…okay, we totally feel bad for making fun now.
Daughters of Bob Geldof, born March 1989, September 1990, March 1983
The Geldof girls are like Britain’s Hilton sisters (except they’re three of them). Peaches, the most famous daughter (model, TV personality and tabloid target) of the Boomtown Rats rocker said it best herself when she tweeted that her name was “ridiculous, I know!” To be fair, Peaches sounds kind of cute and Southern; it’s pairing it with Honeyblossom that makes us wince. That’s something the guys on Mad Men might call their secretary.
Unless Pixie plans to move to Middle-earth to live with the Hobbits and fairies, she’s always going to sound a bit out of place. Like her big sister Peaches and their mother before them, she’s a model and socialite who enjoys the spotlight. Interestingly, her moniker isn’t even the nuttiest in the family: Her half-sister, named Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof, takes that prize.
Fifi intentionally spends less time in the public eye. (She doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page!) Her dad has described her as “a great companion, fantastic fun, a gorgeous girl…[who] scowls at people like I do.” No Bob, she only scowls at you…for giving her that name.
Son of David Bowie and Angela Bowie, born May 1971
We have to wonder what kind of Maui Wowie the glam rock god and his model wife were smoking to come up with the name Zowie Bowie. Ironically, it sounds like an ‘80s New Wave band: Oingo Boigo, Scritti Politti, etc. Understandably, Zowie preferred to go by Joey as a child, and now that he’s a grown-up Hollywood director (Moon, Source Code) he goes by Duncan Jones. It’s probably easier to convince people to give you multimillion dollar budgets with a name like that.
