Actor Russell Crowe revealed that he and wife Danielle Spencer chose the name Tennyson for their newborn second son because it was “different”.
The Oscar winning actor admitted on a local radio station in Australia that new baby was named the 19th-century British poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, but added that he was also named “slightly after” Crowe’s brother Terry as well.
"Dani was looking through books, and my brother's name is Terry, so that makes it T.C. as well, so slightly after him. But mainly because it's just different," the New York Daily News quoted him, as saying on the show.
However, baby Tennyson’s proud parents are not planning to use his rather formal name for a while, preferring to call him ‘Tenny’ instead.
"We will call him Tenny for short," Crowe added.
