Uma Thurman explains daughter's name

So why? Why did she do this?

From SheKnows Canada
It's nice to hear about the thinking process of a particular celebrity, but this might disappoint you. Uma Thurman explains the reason for her daughter's five-word name.

So why? Why did she do this?

So, if you've been wondering what possessed Uma Thurman and boyfriend, Arpad Busson, to name their daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson (or Luna for short), we have an answer for you…

The 42-year-old actress revealed the true reason for this subtle form of child abuse during a chat with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night, and her 14-year-old daughter, Maya, had something to do with it.

"[Maya] came up with the best excuse, [which] was that I probably wouldn't get to have anymore children, so I just put every name I liked into [Luna's]," Thurman stated.

"She can name all her own children all these interesting names," the actress continued. "Proud, Catholic, observant!"

What a lucky child… She might require a larger ID card to fit all those names — a wider passport too. But at least Uma used all the girl names available.

What do you make of this? Opinionate.
