"My name was Farrah Dawn Louisa Alba..," Contactmusic quoted the 28-year-old American star as saying. "On my birth certificate, it was written out and I came out brown and my dad was like, 'She's not allowed to be Farrah, and so he scratched it and on my first birth certificate, it's a scratch and then it's Jessica Marie."
"My dad named me; he was like, 'She looks like me. I can't let her come out Farrah.' But my mom's white and she kinda looks like Farrah Fawcett, so she thought I was gonna look exactly like her and I don't. So, I'm marked for the rest of my life Jessica Marie, but it's a good name," she added.
Washington (ANI): Actress Jessica Alba has revealed that her father planned to name her after Charlie's Angels star Farrah Fawcett but it all changed after she was born as a little Latina. The actress said her birth certificate has the name 'Farrah' scratched out after her father realised his girl was more Latina than Los Angeles.
