Jeremy Sisto Explains His Son’s Unusual Name

2012 TCA Summer Press Tour - Disney ABC Television Group Party

Already dad to daughter Charlie Ballerina, actor Jeremy Sisto admits he and his wife Addie Lane struggled when it came time to name their new son last year. Eventually they settled on Bastian Kick, and the Suburgatory star explains why in an interview with PEOPLE.

Jeremy says that the inspiration for their son’s middle name struck when they met his co-star Cheryl Hines‘ boyfriend Robert Kennedy Jr, saying, “I met Cheryl’s boyfriend‘s daughter who’s called Kick and that was actually where I came up with it. It was inspiration.”

“We were going to name our [daughter] Charlie Kyd, but David [Duchovny] already named his kid that so I decided against it,” Jeremy reveals. “And Kick was similar to Kyd.”

As for their baby boy’s first name, the actor says that “He felt like a ‘B’ somehow … and we went for the B’s,” noting, “Like that NeverEnding Story movie — his name was Bastian,”

    I believe Kick is what they called JFK’s sister, Kathleen. Cute nickname.

    Kick is a name you wouldn’t want printed on the back of your shirt, Bastian sounds quite harsh for a baby.(or anyone)

      Nothing wrong with it, it’s a nickname for Sebastian. Also was the name of the boy in The Neverending Story.
