Jeremy Sisto Discusses Son's Unusual Name
Almost a year after the birth of Jeremy Sisto's son Bastian Kick, we're still wondering what inspired Jeremy and his wife Addie Lane's choice. Also father to toddler Charlie-Ballerina, Jeremy has said, "I never really pictured myself having a family so it felt strange to name my child after anyone else alive. So my wife went through the dictionary, page by page, looking for words that weren’t normally names." This week, he finally shared with PEOPLE what first struck him about baby Bastian Kick's name.
The star said, "We didn’t name him until the baby was about a month because we didn’t want to rush into anything…I met Cheryl [Hines']’s boyfriend‘s daughter who’s called Kick and that was actually where I came up with it. It was inspiration. We were going to name our [daughter] Charlie Kyd, but David [Duchovny] already named his kid that so I decided against it. And Kick was similar to Kyd."
When deciding on his son's first name, Jeremy explains, "He felt like a ‘B’ somehow…and we went for the B’s…Like that NeverEnding Story movie — his name was Bastian." We guessed it! Now all that's left in Bastian Kick's name saga is updating his records. "I think it’s actually Kick on the birth certificate still, but we’re going to change that soon," said Jeremy.
