Uma meet Luna.... Luna meet Uma....

That's right! Uma Thurman is the latest celebrity to jump on the oddball baby name train. The actress has finally revealed the name of her three-month-old daughter and boy is it a mouthful.

Her reps tell People magazine, "I would like to announce Uma and Arki's daughter's name for the first time officially: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Atalune Florence Thurman-Busson, better known to family and friends as Luna. Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father."

Luna made her arrival on July 15 and is the first child for Thurman and her fiance Arpad Busson.

With their decision to give their daughter such a unique moniker, the couple joins an elite crop of stars who have given their children names that are out of this world:

Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf-Lee: Former "My Name is Earl" Star Jason Lee and "Leverage" actress Beth Riesgraf turned to some musical inspiration for the name of their 9-year-old son. For his name, the couple turned to the indie rocker Granddaddy, who had penned a song titled "He's Simple. He's Dumb. He's the Pilot". No explanation has been given for his equally odd middle name.

Kal-el Coppola Cage: It's gotta be hard to live up to expectations when you are named after Superman! That's the challenge that the son of actor Nicolas Cage and his wife Alice Kim will be facing as he grows up with the superhero's moniker in Hollywood. The inspiration for the name was none other than the comic book hero of which his father is a massive fan.

Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa: These are names that could only be inspired by the sixties. Throw in siblings Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen and Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and the Zappa family takes the cake with out of this world baby names.
