Uma Thurman is back to the limelight but it´s not her post-baby figure that garners attention, it´s in fact the revelation of her baby´s very long name.
The rep for Uma and her fiancé Arpad Busson says in a statement to People.com, “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.”
I know it sounds fabulous to have a very long name, but having a long name myself – Glee Leah May Cosep Sanogal – that´s my maiden name, and having had to live with the perils of it, I´m not a fan of long names at all.
First, the child will have to learn to scribble all those letters, two or three times harder than her peers who have short names – just a first name and a surname.
When she grows up and have to do IGCSE or any high school qualifying exams, and licensing board exams after she completes a degree, she´ll have to spend a lot of time shading all those letters of her name and she´ll have to be very careful not to miss a letter. She´ll think, “Oh, what a curse!”
If she goes to borders and have to get a visa, she´ll have to stand in line while scribbling her names in clear Bold letters including her other personal identification info, which is very difficult to do when you´re at a hurry.
But well, Luna, born with a silver spoon, probably doesn´t have to worry at all. She´s very likely to grow up having a team of guards and assistants to do all those filling of names for her.
What do you say? Would you or would not give your baby a very long name? Why?
