Leonardo Dicaprio mother who was pregnant with him was staring at a painting by Leonardo Davinci when he first kicked. That’s why her mother named him after Da Vinci. Given an interview to NPR a few years ago, The Revenant star said that his parents were in Florence when they picked his name.
Leonardo DiCaprio Name Origin
“My father tells me that [he and my mother] were on their honeymoon at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, I believe. They were looking at a da Vinci painting, and allegedly I started kicking furiously while my mother was pregnant,” DiCaprio said. “And my father took that as a sign, and I suppose DiCaprio wasn’t that far from da Vinci. And so, my dad, being the artist that he is, said, ‘That’s our boy’s name.'”
Leonardo Dicaprio won Oscar for The Revenant, in the best actor category which he plays as a survivalist.
