The Special Family Meaning Behind Riley Keough’s Daughter’s Name

Riley Keough tied the knot with Australian stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen in 2015 and, in September 2023, she confirmed to Vanity Fair that they had quietly become parents. Spilling major details about her first child as part of her cover story, Keough introduced daughter Tupelo Storm Smith-Petersen to the world and revealed the sweet family tribute hidden behind each of her names. While her first name is a nod to Elvis’ birthplace — Tupelo, Mississippi — her middle name is a tribute to her brother, whose full name was Benjamin Storm. “We were very connected and very similar,” Keough explained. “He was much quicker and wittier and a little smarter than me.”

However, despite its sentimental backstory, it seems Keough was initially hoping to keep her name’s meaning under wraps. As she told the mag, she chose her daughter’s moniker before the release of “Elvis” and once the movie came out, her plans were foiled. “I was like, ‘This is great because it’s not really a well-known word or name in relation to my family — it’s not like Memphis or something,” she recalled. “Then, when the ‘Elvis’ movie came out, it was like, ‘Tupelo this and Tupelo that.’ I was like, ‘Oh, no!'”

As for her little one’s looks, the actor teased, “She’s literally like someone shrunk my husband and that’s our baby.”
