The name has been doubled

Uma Thurman gave birth to a bouncing baby girl three months ago, but only now is the child’s name being revealed. And it’s a beaut: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.

Friends and family call her Luna.

It’s Thurman’s first child with Arpad Busson, to whom she’s been engaged since 2008, with a period of disengagement somewhere in the middle. Which does not at all explain this:

Born in New York, baby Luna joins a big extended family: Uma has kids Maya and Levon with her ex Ethan Hawke and Arpad has sons Flynn and Cy with his ex Elle MacPherson.

I can just hear Letterman intoning “Uma? Luna. Luna? Uma.”

    Wait until the terrible 2s and the advent of Luna’s Royal Canterlot Voice!

    “Uma Luna do-pity do/I’ve got another riddle for you…”

    But WHY? Rosalind is a beautiful name. It is also a beautiful song: “Rosalinda’s Eyes,” a lovely album cut from Billy Joel. So cut all those extra names in the middle – keep one at most, if you simply MUST have “Altalune” – and the kid is set.

    With a full name like that, I would not be at all surprised if the child turned out to speak in the Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice.

    I can just imagine when Uma gets cross with her. The Mom-yelling-full-name thing could get positively traumatic.
