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, 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.
