Rumer Willis said that her daughter’s name was chosen at random and that it was inspired by a misspelling.
The 35-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore discussed the naming procedure and said that Louetta was not her first pick.
Welcoming the baby girl with her partner Derek Richard Thomas, 28, she said that the name was inspired by an unintentional text message.
She explained: ‘We were thinking about the name Loretta, and it was a typo. Her dad and I were texting, and he left the R out of Loretta, and it was just Louetta.’
The star continued sharing with People: ‘I was like, “Oh, I love that!” I feel like it was one of those kind of divine intervention universe moments, and we figured it out actually quite early in my pregnancy.’
Rumer gave birth at home with the assistance of a doula, Derek, her mother Demi, and her two sisters Tallulah Willis and Scout LaRue Willis.
She went on to say that, despite having settled on a name, she was concerned it wouldn’t be a suitable match once the child came.
The actress told the publication: ‘What was scary was, I love this name, but oh man, is it going to be her name? Is it the right name? What if she comes out and doesn’t look like this?
‘I fell in love with the name so much, so early on, that I was then worried that it wouldn’t work. But then she came out, and I mean, to me, at least right now, I was going to name her Lou, whether she was a boy or a girl.
‘I wanted to find something that had a lot of versatility. If she doesn’t feel like a Louetta, she can go by Lou, she can go by Etta. She can go change it up throughout her life. Whatever she wants.’
Rumer has previously discussed her choice to have a home birth and revealed on the Informed Pregnancy podcast that she had broken her own water.
‘I think there’s a photo of me and I just have this look of shock and surprise on my face,’ she exclaimed at the time.
