Do you ever think about the process that went into selecting your name by your parents? As it turns out, some people, like Scarlett Johansson, give complete control of the decision-making process to chance.
The Black Widow star discussed the meaning behind the naming of their baby Cosmo with her new husband, comedian Colin Jost, in a recent interview.
The actress said to Kelly Clarkson yesterday on The Kelly Clarkson Show that she and Jost first “just put a bunch of letters together” when attempting to come up with their now one-year-old child’s name when they were trying to come up with a name for their child. And from that insignificant game emerged the moniker of Cosmo.
“It just appeared to be an invigorating experience, and I just thought it was so endearing. Our buddies all liked it, “Johansson stated.
Although it did take some time, the Saturday Night Live star’s mother eventually came around to the idea.
“She continued suggesting various versions of it for a while, and I was like, ‘No, he’s already here, he’s out” “She kept offering other versions of it for a long” Johansson reflected on it.
In addition, Johansson is the mother of her daughter Rose Dorothy, who is eight years old and whom she shares with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
Rose and Cosmo are both examples of flowers, which is something that Clarkson mentioned on her show, saying, “I love that they’re both flowers” (cosmos are colorful, daisy-like flowers).
“They are both flowers,” Johansson added. “They are both beautiful.” “That is not something that many people would put together. The cosmo is a particularly cute tiny flower that can be seen in a variety of orange and yellow colorations.”
In addition, she stated, “That’s why even my daughter enjoyed it.”
After being engaged in May 2019, Johansson and Jost are planning to get married in October 2020. Before then, the couple dated for a total of two years.
