You know, the comedian/actress? Love her!

I always thought it was a stage name, but I saw today that she has siblings named Ryot, Liberty, and Annachi. The last one confused me until I realized how it sounds in a non-American accent. grin

Interesting sibset! Has anyone heard of a more outlandish one?

Liberty is ok.

Rebel . . . . . maybe. Only maybe, and only if you lived in a right wing, 'nuclear fall out is nigh' type militia compound in Iowa.

Ryot and Annachi though . . . . . . . . . . I'd certainly feel like rioting in an anarchic fashion if I was lumbered with those stupid names.

Ryot and liberty were on the Australia Amazing race. He was quite a character.

I'd imagine he was Savoy! Which one was he anyway? Ryot? None of those names screams boy or girl at me really...I guess Liberty and Annachi sound more like girls.

I have a huge girlcrush on her at the min.

And actually love Rebel as a name. Ryot and Annachi are hilariously awful grin

If you had one of those names, you would just have to rebel by becoming a quietly-spoken librarian who likes wearing cardigans.

She is so so funny! I love her! In all fairness though, Rebel may be her real name now in the sense that she officially changed it but it is not the name she was born with. She was originally a Melanie, also had a different last name. Funny thing is, her wiki page also says her date of birth is 1986 ... this is also not correct (we were at school together) but I guess that is Hollywood for you. Super happy she is getting a lot of attention now - she really is talented!

Oooh how old is she then aaaaaa? <nosey face>

This made me laugh grin

Everywhere I've looked says that she was born with the name Rebel, aaaaaa. confused

They need another one: Rogue

Oh wow. Has she/someone else invented siblings and names?

SavoyCabbage Fri 05-Oct-12 12:08:08

No, I don't think so. I think that those are their birth names.

SavoyCabbage Fri 05-Oct-12 12:13:11

Yes, Ryot is the brother. here.

Another try at that link. Pesky ipad. again

Well, we were in the same year at school, so she is 1980 or 1981 ... def not 1986 as that would make her younger than her younger siblings iyswim! All the press says Rebel Wilson is her real name so I guess she just officially changed her original first and last names at some point. It is really neither here nor there - I always really liked her and thought she was/is very clever and funny. I remember when she told me her stage name and I was a bit mmmm, that is a little silly but I didn't realise she was going to focus on comedy so a funny name helps! At some point, her real name/age will come out as there were too many of us at school/uni with her before she fully adopted the persona. But it really doesn't matter - she is awesome and I am a big fan (from afar these days as we didn't keep in touch)! I can't remember her siblings names but pretty sure Ryot and liberty are not what they were born with.

I always think names of virtues or other qualities are hard to live up to. Eg Prudence, Patience, Chastity, Serena - what if they're not???

Also names like Bianca - hair changes colour, what if it turns out dark?

A friend of mine just had a Bianca...the baby's dad is Columbian so baby is almost guaranteed to be darker complected. smile

Also I read an interview with Rebel saying that she went by her middle names, Melanie Elizabeth, when she was younger smile
