Uma’s baby Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson sets new bar for silly celeb baby names
And that’s about how long it would take the poor child to spell it. Ready for it? Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.
Celebrities giving their children ridiculous names is nothing new. But Thurman and Busson have single-handedly raised the bar for stupidity.
Both have children from previous marriages: 42-year-old Thurman has Maya Ray, 13, and Levon, 10, with Ethan Hawke; and Busson has two sons Arpad Flynn Alexander, 14, and Aurelius Cy Andrea, nine, from his previous marriage to Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson.
I’m detecting a pattern. It seems that Busson is the one with the thing for triple-barrelled names nobody’s ever heard of.
And maybe it’s taken three months for Busson to get the seven-word moniker over the line with his wife.
On Thursday, the couple made the laughable announcement in an exclusive statement to People magazine in the US.
“I would like to announce Uma and Arki’s daughter’s name for the first time officially: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as Luna,” Thurman’s rep Gabrielle Kachman said.
As in Luna, short for Lunacy.
“Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father,” she went on to explain.
Phew! That’s a relief. Because I was starting to wonder whether since it’s the fifth child between them, that they felt compelled to find her five names and randomly plucked them from stupidbabynames.com.
Luna was born on July 15 to the Kill Bill star and her 49-year-old financier husband after a five year relationship (including a brief separation in 2009).
In NSW at least, the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages reserves the right to reject names that are obscene, offensive or too long. That’s right, names that are too long.
Lucky she wasn’t born here because there’s no way it would pass muster.
At least Luna will be in good company, though. Think Jason Lee’s son Pilot Inspektor, or Beyoncaac and Jay-Z’s Blue Ivy, or Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s Apple.
Paltrow had the good sense to stick to one name, but imagine the jokes when kids pull out their lunch boxes at school.
“It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me, you know apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome and it’s biblical,” Paltrow once explained to Oprah Winfrey.
Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow, apples are sweet … to eat.
When Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence learns to read and write and finds she can’t fit her name on a form, she will surely apply to have it formally changed. She might even try to divorce her parents while she’s at it.
There is a fine line between creativity and cruelty and what Uma Thurman and Arki Busson have done to their little daughter borders on the latter.
