Tom Arnold named his son after his favorite TV character, the True Lies star had his inspiration for Sons Of Anarchy. Arnold is now first time father as of April 6, 2013 when his wife Ashley did give birth to the little one called Jaz Copeland, who’s name is after Charlie Hunnam‘s outlaw biker character on the U.S. show.
Arnold tells People.com,
“My dad’s name is Jack and I wanted to honour him, but not too much. I am a fan of and worked on Sons of Anarchy and my favorite character’s name is Jax. We just thought it was a cool name. Of course I called Kurt Sutter, the show creator, to get his blessing.
“I’m best friends with Dax Shepard so that was also in the back of my head, too. We almost named him Jaxson, but the night before the birth I found out one of my brothers had named his mangy dog Jaxson. Obviously that made a change absolutely necessary!”
Arnold, who did play villainous Georgie Caruso in Sons of Anarchy had picked the name Copeland as it was his grandmother’s maiden name and,
”she was a good lady”.
