Robbie Williams became a father for the first time yesterday when his wife Ayda Field gave birth to their little girl.
We had no doubt that it would be a quirky name if Robbie had anything to do with it but Theodora ‘Teddy’ Rose, really?
The Rose part, lovely! Theodora though? We’ve been going mental in the office, why would you call a newborn baby girl in the year 2012 Theodora?
Not only will that name get inevitably shortened, but it will become shortened to either Theo, which is obviously a boy’s name, or Dora.
Yes, we thought the same too, Dora the Explorer. But apparently we need not worry about what it’s going to be shortened to because Robbie and Ayda have already beaten us to it.
Robbie told the world last night that he and his wife had taken to affectionately calling her ‘Teddy’. God only knows how they got Teddy from Theodora, apart from the fact that both words have a T, E and D in them.
Either way, we’re not impressed with the latest baby name, although I’ll give it to Robbie and Ayda, Theodora isn’t the worst name to come out of Hollywood recently, is it Astala?
