Keira Knightley’s mother spelled her name wrong (VIDEO)

Keira Knightley was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night and revealed that her mother had misspelled her name on her birth certificate, much to the dismay of her father.

“I’m half named after a Russian ice skater that my dad fancied and half because it’s a Celtic name…” explained Knightly. When her mom showed the birth certificate to her dad, he said “you spelled the f-king name wrong!”

Her name should be “Kiera” instead of “Keira.”

Well at least it’s unique.

Keira is nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Imitation Game.
