Here’s an item for your blog. Cate Blanchett named her baby after Ignatius Loyola:
Cate also denied she and Andrew chose the name Ignatius for their baby as a tribute to outrageous rocker Iggy Pop, insisting it is in honor of Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.
She explained to Interview magazine: “Of course one thinks of Iggy Pop. But it’s Ignatius Loyola.”
If you click on the article, you may come away slightly less edified than you might expect. She apparently explains that it’s her duty to have lots of babies because she’s “halfway decent looking… that’s why we have to have more of them.”
