Angelina Jolie's Scrabble Names for her Kids

Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh Nouvel, Knox and Vivienne.

In naming her six children, Angelina Jolie seems to like names containing the letters that have high scores in Scrabble! All those "x"es, and also the "v"s in Vivienne and Nouvelle! And "Z" in Zahara! I wonder if she played Scrabble as a kid and this has some subconscious meaning!

To me, Shiloh is a battle, Knox is a fort, Pax is peace, Maddox is a pitcher, Nouvel is a cuisine, Zahara means shining or flowering in Arabic or Hebrew, and Vivienne means lively and is a much sexier variant than Vivian. If Angelina wants to play Scrabble with me though, I'm in.
