So, the latest Hollywood baby has been born, and she's called Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. This follows some fab names like Dweezil and Moon Unit (Zappa), Moses and Apple (Martin / Paltrow), Geronimo (son of Alex James from Blur), Kal-El (son of Nicolas Cage), Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q (son of Bono), and of course Zowie (Bowie). And don't forget baby Suri (Cruise / Holmes), whose "parents" said meant Princess, but means anything from thief, to "go away", or pig in Punjabi.
Similar confusion has ensued over what baby Jolie-Pitt's name means. So far, there are four suggestions (and rising):
1. New Messiah in French & Hebrew (but shouldn't it be Nouvelle, in the feminine?)
2. Place of Peace in Hebrew
3. A Red Indian settlement
4. A well-known battle
So, mixed messages from the parents - but then this does reflect the many facades of the Jolie mama. One side saintly saviour, charity worker and earth mother. The other side, a hedonistic bi-sexual, knife-wielding, blood-vial-wearing, human vampire hellion.
