Measured against other unique celebrity baby names, Hopper Penn’s moniker is not that unusual – but the 22-year-old could have beat them all if dad Sean Penn had his way. Hopper, whose mother is House of Cards actress Robin Wright, told Interview magazine that his father wanted to name him after a bovine product.
“My dad wanted to name me Steak, the food, because he loves it so much,” Hopper explained. “But my mom was never going to go for it.” Instead, he was gifted a moniker inspired by one of Sean’s favorite actors. “It has to do with Dennis Hopper; my dad was friendly with him and idolized him,” Hopper tells the magazine.
