In her post announcing the birth of her son, Gupta also explained the meaning behind his name. Rémy is a name of French origin, she said. The name means “oarsman.”
“A great oarsman is optimistic, resilient and diligent, with an enduring long-term focus – all qualities we want in our son,” the couple said in their joint announcement.
Rémy is a multi-cultural name with multiple meanings, and also a tribute to Moniz’s love for sports and the outdoors.
“It means ‘God comforts me’ in Yoruba (a Nigerian language), “pupil of the sky” in Japanese, and precious in Urdu,” the statement further said. “And finally, it is the name of the adorable protagonist of Ratatouille, an ambitious mouse who loves a gourmet meal like his mom, dreams big and beats the odds to become the best chef in Paris.”Congratulatory messages have flooded in for the new parents.
