You probably know that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost welcomed their first child, Cosmo, into the world last year.

Now, it's totally possible that when you heard the name Cosmo, you said to yourself, "Huh. That's a unique name. What made them land on that one?"

"We just threw a bunch of letters together," she joked, before elaborating, "No, but I just really thought it was so charming and our friends all liked it."

Cosmo is Scarlett's second child, as she also shares eight-year-old Rose with ex-husband Romain Dauriac — and as it turns out, her two children's names share a thematic connection.

"Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow," she explained. "That's why my daughter liked it too."

Scarlett also confirmed Colin's previous claim that his mother wasn't a huge fan of Cosmo's name.

"Colin's mom had a little bit of a harder time with it," she explained. "She kept suggesting other versions of it for a while and I was like, 'No he's already out, it's past that time'."
