gURL: What does your name mean and where does it come from?

Shia LaBeouf: My last name is misspelled French. My grandmother was a lesbian beatnik poet in the '50s and used to run around with Allen Ginsberg. She hated her family because they wouldn't accept her as a lesbian. It was a different time, obviously, and so she moved to Venice, California and changed her name.

Shia means "gift from God" in Hebrew, which was my grandfather's name. So that's cool. But my last name, LaBeouf, in its proper spelling, means "the beef". So my name means "Gift from God the beef."
