Check out the name(s) of Uma Thurman's baby girl.. That's going to take some learning to spell that!

"Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as 'Luna'."

Lovely name and Luna is a cute nickname.

SLVC Thu 18-Oct-12 09:41:06

I agree all of the names are beautiful. However there are rather a lot of them..

Vajazzler Thu 18-Oct-12 09:57:23

If she is going to be known by friends and family as Luna i dont really understand why they didnt just call her Luna or Atalune at a push. I dont see the need for all the other names and then a completely different name to be known as hmm

I think it's a shame they aren't going to use Rosalind, which is just gorgeous. More so than Luna IMO.

Rosalind is beautiful.

It's a bit strange to take the nn from the fourth name in the list but each to their own I guess. Luna is cute though it makes me think of Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter!

I wish the "True Blood" couple would release the names of their twins, I have a feeling they'll be nice names.

Sorry, guys, I absolutely hate the name!! Overtly and unnecessarily complex.

Luna is beautiful (as is Uma, the name I mean):why not just name her that, or give Altalune as her first name to create an easier NN?

Status name, methinks.

Florence is a rather incongruous choice in amongst that lot - very current and mainstream. It just somehow seems to belie their normalness/mundaneness, when they're trying rather hard to be all celebrity and ostentatious. grin

I'm disappointed now that she's not called Wowsers.

nilbyname Thu 18-Oct-12 19:11:03

I have a Luna! Uma, you are bonkers! But I love all the names.

nilbyname Thu 18-Oct-12 19:13:24

Sorry, but one of her other step children is called Arpad? Arpad?

Arpad, sorry that to me sounds really really odd. Notepad, helipad, shagpad....and so on...

anniewoo Thu 18-Oct-12 19:16:38

Arpad is her partner. Elle mc Phearson's ex ( and father of her 2 sons)

LynetteScavo Thu 18-Oct-12 19:18:42

So, why not just call her Luna? confused

Rosalind is my fictitious daughter's name. Love it. Not fussed about (all!) the others.

janey68 Thu 18-Oct-12 19:53:30

Rosalind (and also Rosaline and Rosamund) are gorgeous. Far prettier than Luna!

jaffacakehips Thu 18-Oct-12 21:29:40

Wow just wow!

Imagine that the length of the school name tapes on that!!

Rhubarbgarden Thu 18-Oct-12 21:43:10

Poor child.

EllenParsons Sat 20-Oct-12 00:50:38

Nilbyname, Arpad is a real name, it's Hungarian. I know a guy called it.

LineRunner Sat 20-Oct-12 00:55:24

Indeed, notquite. She will always be Wowsers to me.

SLVC Sat 20-Oct-12 07:43:36

Brilliant. Wowsers it is grin

nilbyname Sat 20-Oct-12 08:56:35

ellen thank you!

CrapBag Sun 21-Oct-12 20:12:17

Stupid celebrity trying too hard with names again.

Rosalind is a lovely name, as it Luna, why she couldn't have just stuck to one of those I don't know.

Northernlurkerisbehindyouboo Sun 21-Oct-12 20:14:26

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Dd2 is Rosalind. How dare Uma nick my baby name. If she makes it 'popular' I will be as livid as The Bride!

Florence seems to be just tacked on at the end for no good reason. Makes it look like a child named by a committee with a chairman who really wanted to leave and get some lunch.
