Actress Uma Thurman has finally announced the name of her baby girl, born just about three months ago. It's not a name for the faint of heart, either. A statement from her rep announced the little bundle of joy's name as follows, "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." Clocking in seven unique names is quite a feat for an infant, but that's just what little Luna has done.
Over the years, celebrity baby name trends have become truly unique. Names such as Apple or Suri are commonplace. "Transformers" star Megan Fox and her "90210" beau Brian Austin Green chose a more traditional name for their son, Noah, born last month. In honor of Luna's rather lengthy name being announced, let's take a look at Uma's most memorable works.
The Bride in the "Kill Bill" Films - Rumors have been running rampant around Hollywood that director and writer Quentin Tarantino wants to team up with Thurman again for a third installment of this series. Thurman was a killing machine in the first two "Kill Bill" films, but in typical Tarantino fashion, the style and pacing of the film, combined with the taught story lines, made The Bride an extremely sympathetic character. Audiences found themselves cheering her on as she exacted her unique brand of revenge on those who wronged her.
Mia Wallace in "Pulp Fiction" - It was Uma's presence on the poster for the film that first gave audiences an idea that they had no idea what they were in for. The movie helped put Tarantino into the pantheon of great modern directors, and helped make Thurman a household name as the drug-abusing wife of a crime boss. The film even rebooted the career of John Travolta, too. Uma stole every scene she was in, and showed she was able to handle Tarantino's dialogue like a champ.
Cécile de Volanges in "Dangerous Liaisons" - In 1988, at just 18 years old, Thurman played one of the young victims of passion in the beautiful period piece about forbidden love and sexual conquest. The film also starred Glenn Close, John Malkovich and Michelle Pfeiffer. Uma played the naive and easily manipulated young lady Cecile, and showed she was able to keep up with the likes of Malkovich and Close on-screen. Her role in the film helped start her long and respected career and showed her versatility from the start.
