Helena Bonham Carter Reveals Her 7-Month-Old's Name

Originally posted 08/07/2008 08:30AM

It has been a long time coming, but director Tim Burton and actress Helena Bonham Carter have finally confirmed the name of their 7-month old daughter – Nell.

Born last Dec. 15 in London and revealed as a PEOPLE exclusive, Nell Burton had a gestation period for her name almost as long as the pregnancy itself. The creative couple had difficulty agreeing a moniker.

Bonham Carter, 42, confirmed the name during a phone interview with the Jewish Journal while on the set of Terminator Salvation in New Mexico.

Bonham Carter said her daughter was named Nell after "all the Helens in the family." The actress's mother is named Elena and her grandmother was called Helene.

"He decorates it with dead babies and slime balls and things," Carter, 41, tells Playboy magazine in its January issue, about trimming the tree with boyfriend (of six years) Burton, 49. "It looks lovely and glittery from afar, and then as you get closer, you realize it's rather gory."
