Last week, on Siblings Day, as brothers and sisters shared loving and not-so-loving snaps of themselves on social media, toy giant Mattel casually let everyone know that Barbie - THE iconic Barbie - has a surname.

And it's Roberts.

(Yes, that's a young Mila Kuis).

"Happy Siblings Day from the Roberts sisters," said the official Barbie Twitter account, like it was no big deal at all.

Unlike Cher, Beyonce and Madonna, Barbie has not one but two names. And people collectively lost their minds.

Some even demanded proof:

According to Barbie's Wikipedia page, (and her Instagram account) her full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.

She has three sisters, Chelsea, Stacie, and Skipper.

Barbie and Ken, whose last name is Carson, split in 2004. Here they are cooking together a few weeks ago, however, so perhaps there's a reunion afoot?
