Uma Thurman’s Daughter Has Seven Names

Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Uma Thurman’s daughter is going to have a hell of a time filling out a Scantron form.

On Wednesday, the actress revealed the name of the daughter she gave birth to in July: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, "better known to family and friends as Luna,” Thurman’s rep Gabrielle Kachman told People magazine.

Why so long? “Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father,” Kachman said.

Little Luna joins the ranks of Blue Ivy Carter, Apple Martin, and more celebrity children unlikely to find their monikers on souvenir keychains.

Uma Thurman Out with Baby Day After Giving Birth

Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic(WOODSTOCK, N.Y.) -- Usually by baby No. 3, moms waste little time getting back on their feet, and actress Uma Thurman is no exception. Just one day after giving birth, the Kill Bill star was out and about Tuesday with her new baby daughter.

The 42-year-old actress looked remarkably well, perched on a stool in a Woodstock, New York, cafe while cradling her baby, wrapped in a white blanket.

Though this is her first child with financier boyfriend Arpad Busson, Thurman has two older children — Maya, 13, and Levon, 10 — with ex-husband Ethan Hawke. Busson, 49, has two sons, Arpad Flynn Alexander, 14, and Aurelius Cy Andrea, 9, from his previous relationship with supermodel Elle Macpherson.

Thurman began dating Busson in 2007. The pair briefly split in 2009 before getting back together.

Uma Thurman's Stalker is Arrested for a Second Time

Photo Courtesy - Gilbert Carrasquillo/FilmMagic/Getty(NORTH POTOMAC, Md.) -- Jack Jordan, already convicted in 2008 for stalking actress Uma Thurman, has been arrested a second time for allegedly violating his restraining order by calling the star's office and cell phone, allegedly telling an office assistant that Thurman's boyfriend was "not good enough" and "she should marry me."

The former psychiatric patient was arrested without incident Nov. 23.

According to what a police source told, Jordan had been Googling Thurman's name moments before he was taken into custody at his parents' Maryland home.

In 2008 Jordan was found guilty of stalking the actress. During the trial, Thurman read aloud from his letters. "He used words like 'mouth,' 'soft,' 'kissing' and seduced," she said, while also recalling a photo he sent of a headless bride.

Since then, Jordan, who works as a pool cleaner, has lived without incident, leading some to wonder why he surfaced now.

"It doesn't take much to trigger, and we've got to appreciate celebrity stalkers as people whose emotional identity is overly wrapped up in the notion that they can have a relationship with someone famous," Dr. Michael Welner, ABC News consultant and one of America's top forensic psychiatrists said. "Because their lives are otherwise disconnected, isolated and even empty, that level of investment makes them vulnerable to a whole host of triggers to make them go right back to where they were before."

"Part of the reason we shouldn't find this surprising is that there's no deterrence in probation, whether it be hospital, whether it be jail, or whether it be exile -- actually eliminating a person's privileges as an American citizen because they can't respect the rights of another," Welner said.

Jordan was the president of his high school senior class and the captain of the swim team. But as a college student, his parents say he became interested in the teachings of Robert Thurman, Uma's father, a Buddhist scholar and academic, and that was when his obsession began.
