A twitter user named Shek explained her discovery that the siblings’ names are a play on their parents’ names in a now-deleted post.
Another person commented: “I was about ten years old when I noticed that Jaden and Willow Smith’s names are merely variations of their parents’ names???? Goodbye.”
“I feel so stupid for understanding that Willow and Jaden Smith’s names are basically variations of their parents’ names,” a third person said.
