August 7, 2008: "Helena Bonham Carter And Tim Burton Name Their Child"
Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have named their daughter Nell.
The couple previously never disclosed the baby's name, but Helena has now confirmed she decided to call the child after "all the Helens in the family."
Helena, who also has a four-year-old son Billy Ray with Tim, said she is determined for both her children to know all the aspects of their heritage. She added: "I feel quite atavistic in the sense that I want them to know where they come from."
Helena also revealed the reasons behind her choosing to star as a Jewish mother in Paul Weiland's new partly-autobiographical movie 'Sixty Six.'
She told The Jewish Journal: "I had not 'done' Jewish before. So when Paul phoned up and said, 'Will you be my mother?' I said, 'Yes, of course' - almost for sentimental reasons."
"My own mum was triumphant, because I'm quite Jewish on her side of the family. My mum's grandmother was an Austrian Jew called Mitzi Fould-Springer."
"People think of me as so quintessentially English. But actually I look just like my mum - dark-eyed and very Jewish."
