Jaden Smith was almost named Luigi from Super Mario Bros.

When Will and Jada welcomed their son Jaden into the world in 1998, the 'Wild Wild West' star wanted his first son Trey - who he shares with ex-wife Sheree Zampino - involved in the baby naming process. Will was shocked with the six-year-old's choice, inspired by Nintendo's 'Super Mario Bros.' video games. He wrote: "Jada and I look to each other in abject horror, both of us thinking the exact same thing: Have you ever met a guy named Luigi?" Luckily, they managed to convince Trey to name their dog Luigi instead. The name Jaden Christopher Syre was agreed upon by all three family members. Will picked Jaden, Trey picked Christopher and Jada picked Syre.
