Samira Wiley Reveals Why She & Wife Lauren Morelli Named Their Daughter George

Now, Samira is opening up about their daughter’s traditionally masculine name, George.

“I just really like the name. I just think it’s really cute,” Samira revealed to Jimmy Kimmel during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week.

She also shared that while she wished she “had some really in-depth story to tell people about George,” but it really came down to preference.

However, George was a girl’s name at one point in history, too.

“I tried to do some research. I found out in the 1800s it was a girl’s name, but people don’t believe me when I say that,” Samira says, and even adds there is a girl George in the “Nancy Drew” mystery novels.

This other celebrity couple also named their own daughter George!
