Reggie Bush and Baby Mama Reveal Their Unusual Baby Name!
Footballer Reggie Bush and his Kim Kardashian-esque baby mama, Lilit Avagyan, are basking in that new parent glow we’ve heard so much about. While we’re convinced that their little baby girl will turn out to be just as much a looker like her parents, we’re a little less sure of the couple’s baby name choice. Reggie and Lilit named their daughter after a character in the 2004 movie, Troy.
Yeah yeah, technically that movie is based on The Iliad, so you could say they named their baby for a figure from classical literature. But as Kim Kardashian’s former beau told Life & Style, the inspiration for the name came while he and Lilit were watching a sweaty, dirty Brad Pitt slay Trojans. (That’s where all our best ideas come from, too. What a coinkydink!)
"We were watching the movie Troy,and my fiancée, who was my girlfriend at the time, said, 'If we ever have a daughter, can we name her that?'” referring to Briseis, the character portrayed by Rose Byrne. Lilit wasn’t pregnant at the time, but she might be a little bit psychic, the way Reggie tells it. “And a couple of months later, wouldn't you know! The name was picked out months before she was even thought about. It's crazy."
“Briseis” is actually a pretty name, don’t get us wrong, but we do have some concerns. After all, the most likely nickname would be “Bris,” and we’re not so sure we’d want to share a name with the Yiddish word for circumcision, y’know what we mean?
