Riley Keough Revealed Her Baby Girl's Unique Name — & It's a Sweet Tribute to Elvis Presley

Riley Keough’s baby girl turns 1 this month, and we finally get to hear her beautiful name! The Daisy Jones & The Six star revealed her daughter’s name, and it has the most meaningful connection to Elvis Presley.

ICYMI, Keough is the daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough, and the granddaughter of the late Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. To honor her famous family — and her legendary grandfather — Keough and husband Ben Smith-Peterson chose the name Tupelo Storm Smith-Peterson for their daughter. This unique name references Elvis’s birthplace in Tupelo, Mississippi!

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, out today, Keough explained, “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.’”

It’s definitely unique! But she underestimated how much public knowledge about her family would grow after Elvis starring Austin Butler came out in 2022. “It’s funny because we picked her name before the Elvis movie,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh, no’,” after she saw how much Tupelo was mentioned in the film. “But it’s fine,” Keough added.

The baby’s cool middle name, Storm, is the same name as Keough’s late brother, Benjamin Storm Keough, who died by suicide in 2020.

In the interview, Keough also mentioned that she had Lyme disease, which led to her using a surrogate for baby Tupelo.
