    Why Yes, Barbie Does Have A Last Name

    And, no. It's not Doll.

    Alright, I'll admit it. I wasn't one of those kids growing up who played with Barbies.

    Sure, I had my phase like everyone else probably did. But, I was more of an American Girl Doll person if we're being honest.

    Keeping that in mind, even I knew that Barbie had a last name.

    I mean, if Madonna, Cher, Beyoncé, and Rihanna have last names, then Barbie must too. Right?

    But, when Barbie shared this photo on Twitter for National Siblings Day, people lost their collective mind.

    Happy #SiblingsDay, from the Roberts sisters! 💕

    "The ROBERTS sisters."

    @Barbie Barbie, you got a last name?

    @Barbie I'm uncomfortable with this information

    World, let me introduce you to Barbara Millicent Roberts.

    Nope. Not Doll.

    @Barbie Wait i thought your surname was Doll. Barbie Doll.

    Not...Minaj?

    @Barbie I thought Barbie last name was Minaj.. Barbie Minaj?

    Roberts. And it's been that way since 1959. Barbie is actually named after creator Ruth Handler's teen daughter Barbara.

    @Barbie I demand to see a birth certificate
