Baby No.2 for Boris & Carrie

British Prime Minister [name_u]Boris[/name_u] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m] is expecting his sixth (or seventh according to reports) child, his second with current wife [name_f]Carrie[/name_f] Symonds.

[name_u]Baby[/name_u] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m] will join older sibling [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m] [name_m]Lawrie[/name_m] [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]. [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m] was named after the Prime Minister’s Grandfather, Carrie’s grandfather and the doctors who treated him during his time in intensive care after he contract Covid-19.

The baby will also join half siblings [name_f]Lara[/name_f] [name_f]Lettice[/name_f], [name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_u]Arthur[/name_u], [name_f]Cassia[/name_f] [name_f]Peaches[/name_f] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Apollo[/name_m].

Political allegiances aside, I love his children’s quirky names and can’t see what they come up with for the little one.

I suspect it with take influence again from [name_u]Boris[/name_u] & Carrie’s extended family trees but maybe with a twist

I agree! His children have great names. I might have a snoop at the family tree for more inspiration, but my money would be on another quirky-classic Telegraph-style name, like [name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_m]Hugo[/name_m], [name_m]Rupert[/name_m], [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] or [name_m]Maximilian[/name_m] for a boy, and [name_u]Florence[/name_u], [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f], [name_f]Jemima[/name_f], [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] or [name_f]Constance[/name_f] for a girl.

Really hope they don’t use [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] or [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] :sob: if they have a girl. I know [name_u]Boris[/name_u] likes his Greek mythology, I think something preppy paired with a Greek Mythological name.

I decided to look back at British [name_u]Baby[/name_u] Names’ yearly round-ups from the Telegraph announcements for inspiration, because I really think that’s their style (or at least Boris’s, given his other children’s lovely names - adore [name_f]Peaches[/name_f] as a mn). I also don’t think it’d be a super popular name either, because the other children’s names aren’t overly common for the years they were born.
