Baby's Name: Revealed!
Rumors online have flourished for months stating that the name of Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter's December-born daughter was Indiana Rose Burton. But on January 31st, this was proven to be incorrect.
Weeks onward, the name had not been decided or revealed. Now, the baby's name has been revealed: Emily Kim Burton. The exact reason behind the name is unknown, but if it was a conscious decision, it is likely that her first and middle names were patterned after the names of two characters in the films of her father: Kim being the name of Winona Ryder's character in Edward Scissorhands (a very personal film for Burton), and Emily from the animated film Corpse Bride (who was voiced by her mother, Bonham Carter).
This is Burton and Bonham Carter's second child. Their first, Billy Ray Burton, was born in October 2004.
Congratulations to the happy family!
