Shannyn Sossamon has defended her choice to name her son AUDIO SCIENCE.

The KNIGHT'S TALE beauty gave birth to her first child in June (03), and decided to name the tot after a word special to her.

She explains, "We wanted a word not a name, so my boyfriend read through the dictionary three or four times.

"We were going to call him Science, but thought it might get shortened to Sci, as in SIMON."
