Uma Thurman


Uma Thurman's daughter may have five names, but trust, there is a method to the moniker madness.

After revealing in October that she and boyfriend Arpad Busson decided to name their newborn baby girl—whom they welcomed in July—Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson (Luna for short), the actress is now opening up about her bundle of joy's superlong title and explained why she choose five names.

Speaking with Jimmy Fallon Monday on Late Night, the Kill Bill star confessed that it was actually her 14-year-old daughter, Maya, who convinced her to keep the mouthful of monikers: 

"[Maya] came up with the best excuse, [which] was that I probably wouldn't get to have any more children, so I just put every name I liked into [Luna's]," the 42-year-old star shared on the late-night talk show.

After referencing Luna's surname and joking that "the last part makes sense," Uma went on to explain that she and Busson had a difficult time compromising:  

"We couldn't quite agree on the name. We call her Luna, so she's lucky that way," the proud mama shared.

"And then the rest, she can name all her own children all these interesting names," she joked. "Proud, Catholic, observant!" 

Well, her name might be a mouthful, but we think little Luna's a pretty lucky gal!
