After chuckling she went on, saying, “It just seemed like a refreshing – it’s so charming. Our friends all like it.”

At first, husband Jost’s mom was not included in those that were into the moniker.

“She kept suggesting other versions of it and I’m like, ‘No, he’s already here, he’s out.’”

Johansson’s daughter Dorothy, 8, loved the name, according to the actress. Clarkson then remarked how she loves both of the kids’ name are both flowers.

“They are both flowers,” Johansson said. “Not a lot of people make that connection. Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow.”

She also remarked that’s what her daughter liked about the name as well.

Johansson and “Saturday Night Live” veteran Jost married in October 2020 after getting engaged in May 2019.

The actress will next appear in Wes Anderson’s “Asteroid City.”
