Nakoa-Wolf ... (Lisa Bonet)

The former Cosby Show star changed her name from Lisa Bonet to Lilakoi Moon in the mid-1990s. So playing with societal name expectations is nothing new to her. She and actor partner Jason Momoa had son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa in early 2009. It was reported that Momoa's mother posted, on his official Web forum, the meaning of the mouthful of a name. Nakoa means warrior, mana means strength or spirit, kaua and po mean rain and dark (the weather when he was born), and Namakaeha is one of his father's middle names. After having to learn how to pronounce his own name, the kid's surely going to be a language wiz.
