Stallone's Weird Birth Name
SYLVESTER STALLONE didn't always have such a catchy moniker - his mother named him after a hairbrush brand when he was first born.
The Rocky hardman's eccentric mum Jackie wasn't sure what to call her first-born son, and initially named him 'Binky' after a U.S. hairbrush company.
Stallone tells Britain's Daily Express, “There was this thing called a Binky brush which was a hairbrush and I guess my parents ran out of names at the time.
“I was called Binky until they could come up with a cool one like Sylvester.”
