Eva Mendes Explains Why She Gave Her Daughters The Same Name

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have successfully kept their relationship and family very private and out of the limelight. Not too long ago, the name of their second child was revealed. In her latest interview with Latina magazine, she reveals that they couldn’t choose a name that they liked more than Amada.

“My grandmother’s name is Amada, and Esmeralda Amada is the name of our eldest,” she told Latina magazine.

“We had a few names picked out for our new baby, and when she was born, we didn’t feel like those names were her.”

“We came up with a few more, even that morning, and tried them out. We were like, ‘What about Viviana?’ But we just kept going back to Amada.”

Mendes explains that it’s common in Latin culture for siblings to have the same name,

‘I used to know five sisters that were all Maria del Carmen, Maria Elena, Maria Liliana.’
