YAY! May she have a long, marvelous career (if that's what she chooses, of course).
 
I loved it.

About her name,
 
Quvenzhan√© Wallis (pronounced /kw√¶ňąv…Ďňźn í…ône(…™)/; kwa-VAHN-zha-nay,[2][3][4] born August 28, 2003) is an American child actress. She is known for her leading role as Hushpuppy in the critically acclaimed drama film Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012).[5] For this role, she has been nominated and won several awards. She is the youngest actress ever to receive a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. [6]
 

Wallis was born in Houma, Louisiana, the daughter of Qulyndreia, a teacher, and Venjie Wallis, Sr., a truck driver.[1][7][8] "Quven", the first part of her name, combines her parents' first names, while her mother says that zhané means "fairy" in Swahili.[2] Wallis is attending Hounduras Elementary School in Houma, Louisiana.[9]

Wallis, at age five, had to lie about her age to audition for her very first acting job‚ÄĒthe starring role in Beasts of the Southern Wild because the minimum age to be considered was six. She eventually beat out some 4,000 contenders for the role of Hushpuppy‚ÄĒthe indomitable child prodigy and survivalist who lives with her dying father in the backwoods bayou squalor of Louisiana.[

I thought it was Native American or something. Like Quezacotl. Well...we should stop getting judged as much for our names though.
