Christian Serratos is a big name in Hollywood—and she’s proud of it, too.
The 30-year-old actress opened up about why she loves her moniker during the Dec. 14th episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The topic came up after Jimmy Kimmel noted he’d never met a woman named Christian before.
“I have never met anybody else called Christian,” Serratos said, “but that’s kind of why I dig my name.”
Looking back at her childhood, the Selena: The Series star recalled the comments she received about her name—and how she had the perfect comeback.
“People would often say to me, ‘Oh, well isn’t that a boy’s name?'” she said. “And I wanted to tell them constantly, ‘Well no, not if I have it.'”
So when it came time to naming her own child, Serratos decided to call her daughter Wolfgang—Wolfie for short. “It like gave me something to, like, be, I guess, strong about and I wanted my daughter to be strong,” she explained. “So, I gave her a unisex name.”
