Lyra Antarctica!

And I have a new favourite celebrity baby name!
[name_m]Ed[/name_m] Sheeran and [name_f]Cherry[/name_f] [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] named their baby girl [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] Antarctica!
What do you think of the name?

I really love it. It’s giving an aquatic/nautical theme

I actually really like it!

I think it’s very cool! I expected them to go with something a little more down-to-earth and I originally read [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] as [name_f]Lyla[/name_f], but I do quite like it. I think they gave her [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] as a second middle too, so it’s definitely very aquatic.

Very interesting and unique, but I don’t think it fits a doctor, a lawyer or a president. Antarctica [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] is too much for me.
I love that they used [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m]!
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] Sheeran would have been perfect.

Lyra is nice. Antarctica…not so much.

Lyra is lovely! Antarctica is a bit strange, but as far as “out there” celebrity baby names go I don’t hate it.

These were my exact thoughts when I first read the full name too. [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] would have been :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

But I do really like the name they chose. It’s fun and kooky without being ridiculous or embarrassing.

Congratulations to them!

Seaborn is her mother’s maiden name and it might be a double barrel last name so having the aquatic theme doesn’t bother me since it’s not like her mom can change her maiden name! I love [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] Antarctica though, I think it sounds so wintery!

I think it’s cool! [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] feels elegant and beautiful and Antarctica just adds that celebrity flair :))

This is probably going to be the opposite of everyone else says, but I actually like Antarctica!

I don’t have any strong feelings on [name_f]Lyra[/name_f]. It was very popular back when I first joined NB, and probably still is. I’m sure [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] is a perfectly lovely name; I’ve just been overexposed to it.

Also, I prefer names where the first and middle don’t end in the same letter.

Also my thoughts exactly!

I love [name_f]Lyra[/name_f]! :heart: I’m not sure how I feel about [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f]. As of yet neither of them have offered an explanation for their name choice (as far as I know) so I’d really love to see that. I’m sure in their next interview a journalist will ask “So why [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f]?” & hopefully we’ll find out!

Cherry really lucked-out in the maiden name department, [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] is an awesome second middle to be able to pass on to her daughter.

It’s picturesque; I think of a snowy landscape, so I actually really like it :ice_cube:

I imagined [name_m]Ed[/name_m] Sheeran & [name_f]Cherry[/name_f] [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] using a name like [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] it’s a pretty name and doesn’t feel surprising. Also [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] does fit in with the popular names in [name_f]England[/name_f] & [name_m]Wales[/name_m] currently so I don’t think [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] stands out at all especially in comparison to celebrity names. I’m not keen on [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f] I agree with the others that just [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_m]Seaborn[/name_m] would have been prettier. I think [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f] is ‘try hard’ and doesn’t fit with [name_m]Ed[/name_m] Sheeran image of a relaxed, working class man of the people vibe. But hey maybe there’s a deeper meaning to [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f] and if so I could just be a bit judgemental :joy:
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f] is beautiful though.

Congrats to them though they look like a proper sweet couple!

I read an article that said [name_m]Ed[/name_m] Sheeran has talked about his love for the His Dark Materials trilogy in the past, so I presume that’s where [name_f]Lyra[/name_f] comes from! I’m still intrigued as to what made them choose [name_f]Antarctica[/name_f] though :thinking:
