Jenny Slate on her daughter's initial name

While talking to the host Jimmy Kimmel, Jenny Slate shared that she and her fiance Ben Stattuck did some research about both heritages. The couple discovered an area in Europe that her family is from. She shared that they were looking at some Eastern European names and they did not go with the name Ida Lupine. She controlled her laughter and said they both were obsessed with a name that was spelled as ‘Bagrat’.

While she was pregnant, they both used to call her Bagrat which she herself is not sure about how to pronounce. Jenny Slate realised that she surely fumbled while pronouncing the name and added that she is positive about the name and feels that it is something more beautiful as compared to how she and her fiance were saying it. Jenny Slate's baby will surely have an interesting story about her name when she grows up.
