Johnny Depp fans believe that Amber Heard took her daughter’s name from the same movie that Depp allegedly used to name his two children.
Depp has two children named Jack and Lily-Rose Depp from his relationship with Vanessa Paradis. Heard welcomed a daughter named Oonagh in 2021.
The former couple never had children together, but Depp’s fans seem to think Heard is trying to connect to his children through their daughter’s name
Amber Heard’s daughter has a surprising connection to Johnny Depp’s children’s names.
This is what one user claimed on Reddit “Amber Heard named her child to relate to Johnny.” Expand the line by saying that Depp’s children and Heard’s daughter all have names that appear in the 1985 film Legend starring Tom Cruise.
The two main characters in the film are called Jack and Lili, the Reddit user points out. “There’s another character, a fairy who falls in love with Jack, can you guess her name? Oonagh.”
“Please tell me what the likelihood of this is because ever since I found out, I’ve been struck by this woman’s obsession,” they concluded.
The characters in the film “Legend” are Jack (played by Tom Cruise), Lili (played by Mia Sara) and Oona (played by Annabelle Lanyon).
Johnny Depp has never explained the meaning behind his children’s names.
The theory may be far-fetched as the actor has never said he named his children after characters from the 1985 film.
It has been speculated that Depp decided to give his daughter Lily-Rose a double surname as a tribute to his mother Betty-Sue, who also had a double surname. Other fans claimed that Depp and Paradis came up with the name Lily-Rose simply because they liked it.
For Depp and Paradis’ son, Jack Depp, his full name is John Christopher Depp III and it is said to be a generational name as Johnny Depp’s full name is John Christopher Depp II which is named after his father.
Many fans assumed that Depp’s son was Jack’s due to Jack Sparrow, the prominent role Depp played in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
While Heard hasn’t spoken publicly about the origin of her daughter’s name, Oonagh is pronounced “oo-na” and said to be derived from the Irish word “uan” meaning lamb. It is also said to have roots in the Latin word for one – “unus” – hence it is sometimes translated as “unity”.
However, the baby’s middle name, Paige, appears to be a tribute to Heard’s late mother and Oonagh’s grandmother, whose death was announced by Heard in May 2020.
In the comments section of the Reddit post, users reacted to the claim that Heard named her baby to “connect” with Depp.

One user offered a possible theory as to why Heard named her daughter Oonagh. “Well actually [Amber’s] Sister was in a movie (random AF, I know) and her [sister’s] Character’s name was Uma/Oonahh. And I think that’s where she got it from,” they wrote.
Another user seemed to point out the absurdity of the claim, writing, “That’s a stretch, to be fair.”
