[ # ] Sigourney Weaver is not the name she was born with
November 30th, 2022 under Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest, Sigourney Weaver

Believe it or not. Sigourney Weaver’s parents didn’t name her Sigourney. They called their baby girl Susan. However, when she was 11, she decided to change her first name.

Yesterday when the actress was on Live with Kelly and Ryan, she told them how she came up with the name we call her now.

“I was reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The name Sigourney is mentioned once,” the star said. “I looked at that. It had my initial, and then it had this waxy-long name. And I thought, ‘Oh, I am just going to use it for a while til I can figure out who I am.'”

Since Weaver has been using the name for over 60 years, we can all agree that she found out she is a Sigourney, which totally works for her. She stands out in a group of Susans, so why shouldn’t she go by a name that stands out like her?

What did her parents think of her changing their name? Well, her father was born Sylvester, but everyone called him Pat. While her mom went by Liz even though her parents called her Desiree. So it is just the Weaver thing to do!
