LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Life On Mars” star Lisa Bonet and her husband, “Stargate Atlantis” actor Jason Momoa, welcomed a baby boy toward the end of December, and his name’s a real mouthful — Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.
“He was born on the stormest (sic), rainy night,” Jason’s mother wrote on the proud papa’s official site‘s message board, adding that the weather influenced the lengthy name.
“Nakoa (warrior)… Mana (strength/spirit) Kaua (rain) po (dark)…,” she wrote. “The [first] name was always going to be Nakoa-Wolf.”
The name is pronounced Na-Ko-Ah Wolf Mana-Ka-Ooh-Ah-Po Namma-Kay-Ah-Ha Mo-Moa, a Hawaiian source told Access Hollywood.
It’s Lisa’s second child with husband Jason, following the birth of their daughter, Lola Iolani, in July 2007. Lisa has a 20-year-old daughter, Zoe, with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.
