The Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver, and his wife Jools welcomed their
third daughter into the world last Friday. (Let’s skip over the part
about Oliver telling everyone he hoped they would have a boy.)
newest, continuing an apparent family tradition of floral first names
plus hokey/hippie middles, joins big sisters Daisy Boo and Poppy Honey
in a wacky Oliver baby bouquet.
Indeed, 6 pound 10 ounce Petal Blossom Rainbow arrived just days after Dad cooked for leaders at the G20 Summit. The popular chef is spending two weeks at home with his wife and kids.
Bruce Lansky, Baby Name Guru and author of the 5-Star Baby Name Advisor, which, out on a limb here, does not include Poppy, Rainbow, Petal or probably even Jools, gives the new baby a hearty welcome to the world accompanied by two thumbs down for her silly name.
What do you think? After Daisy and Poppy, Petal feels a tad generic. It also makes me thing of worried Wemberly’s favorite doll.
This makes me wonder what they would have named the baby had she been a boy. Think they would have gone with Brian?
