Do you know how you got your name? Is it a family name? Picked from a movie/book? Freedom and Michael Banks planned to name their little girl, who was supposed to be born September 3rd, Voilet. Plans changed quickly as mama went into labour yesterday…and shortly after she was born, they knew Voilet didn’t fit anymore…she had to be Eclipse!
“I kind of felt like it was meant to happen, to have her on this day” Mama said to ABC News. “I think it was just meant to be, her name, we’re probably going to call her Clipsey” How cute is this, every baby born yesterday got a special solar eclipse onesie!!!
Speaking of names, Thomas Rhett was asked about how he and Lauren picked names for their girls Willa Gray and Ada James and says
“Willa came from my Moms Dad, who’s name is Willard, which translated means inately brave and so we felt like Willa was a beautiful girls name and also I think we thought it represented kinda her story, like you have to be strong to survive what she went through. And then Gray is short for Lauren’s brother Grayson and we really love Grayson’s personality and we love him so much that we just thought Willa Gray sounded really nice together.”
As for Ada James
“We’re a huge double name family if you haven’t known…Ada James, James comes from my Uncle, my Dads brother is names James Elias so James is her middle name and Ada, Lauren said that she had a dream and she kept hearing the name Ada in the dream and that is why we went with Ada”
