Uma Thurman's Baby Name Is Long & Wrong

Eye Roll 90

Uma Thurman and babyThe revelation of Uma Thurman's daughter's name has been a long time in coming. She's stayed publicly silent since delivering her daughter on July 15, and just this week revealed the name, which is, well ... long.

Thurman's rep announced it to People yesterday, and it's one of the more insane interesting names we've heard out of Hollywood in awhile. Ready? Take a deep breath (you're going to need it). It's ...  

Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Seriously, that's her name. The rep said, “Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father.” And that's lovely, but what a cop-out!

The whole point of the baby-naming process is to pick one (maybe two) out, not just pick every single name you like and string them together. If I had done that, I'd have a daughter named Eleanor Beatrice Lucy Poppy Mary Margaret Lila Claire Evans. Doesn't exactly roll off your tongue, now does it?

What a horrible precedent to set, too! When you're limited to a first and a middle name, relatives and friends can't get too p.o.'d when you don't use theirs. But when you start a whole list, can you imagine the feelings you could hurt when you start leaving people off of that list?

Not to mention the poor children saddled with these names. Filling out forms will be a nightmare, and they'll be in high school before they learn to write, much less remember, their entire name. And speaking of school, if everyone does this, can you imagine how long graduation ceremonies will last as each long laborious name must be read? And how in the hell do you monogram it?

It's simply too much. So while it's their baby and they can name it anything they want, I truly hope this doesn't become a trend. It may take some of the stress out of picking the one perfect name, but that child is going to pay for that easy out with a lifetime of stress.

RAAAFTB, pronounced rafftib.  It's like a military acronym.

What the ...... Wow

They call her Luna apparently, which i find funny because they couldn't even nickname one of her first 3 names, so they went with the ending of her fourth.

It just seems a bit much to me.  I mean, it's her kid and she can name her whatever she wants, but I feel for the poor little girl when she's learning to write her name or when they go over what her initials are.  To me, it looks like Uma and her husband couldn't decide on a name and just kept them all.

It's still better than Moxie Crimefighter, Penn Gillette's daughter's name.

I'm sure she'll just be know by her first name which is pretty. Then they had to go with Luna....sigh

4 middle names and a hyphenated last name? Wow.


Wow!Who are you to say the names are wrong?Maybe people think the name(s)of your child(children)sucks,and why is it a cop out for the names to mean something special to the parents?I'm pretty dang sure that every one picks a name or names for special reasons and it was not called out for being a cop out.
