Parents tend to name their children according to themes, or similar sounds, in order to make sure all the names go together nicely. So, it’s no surprise that Rebel Wilson’s family did the same. However, given that the actress’s real name is Melanie Elizabeth Wilson, and Rebel is what her mother called her, which she turned into a stage name, people weren’t exactly expecting what they got when they heard about the rest of the Wilson clan.

The Other Names

Rebel Wilson has three siblings – two sisters, Liberty and Annachi, and a brother called Ryot. The Australian explained, “My three siblings and I all have middle names after English royalty. Mine is Elizabeth, which is what I was known as at school.” She then added, “People ask if my parents are hippies, but they’re actually very conservative.”

A Family Tradition

Wilson says that she likes the way her and her siblings’ names sound together, and she also wants to name her own children unique names. The actress has a child with her finacée, Ramona Agruma, and named the baby Royce Lillian Elizabeth Wilson. She explained, “I wanted an original name starting with the letter ‘R’ so eventually landed on that one.” Rebel also revealed where the idea for her own name came from. Apparently, a woman named Rebel sang at her parents’ wedding and her mother fell in love with the name. In fact, that was Rebel’s legal name until she was six weeks old and her mom changed it due to pressure from other family members.
