Claire and Liam seemed as if they were running out of time to find a baby name, with two weeks to go, and no name agreed on. After their story was posted, the couple managed to choose a girl’s name quite easily, with either Tilda Eden or Mabel Eden decided upon. It was so easy that Claire was convinced the baby would be a boy, as they still hadn’t come up with any male names.
It turned out she was correct, as they welcomed their fourth child and third son on September 20, weighing a sturdy 4.1 kg (9lb 4oz). It took them a day and a half to think of a name for him, with their early choice Isaiah still a contender right up to the last minute. Liam suggested James, and Hunter was a genuine possibility, but in the end they chose
baby brother to M@rty, J@sper and Be$$y.
Angus was the first name on Claire’s name list after Isaiah, and Liam and the children all liked it the best. Claire liked Angus because it sounds nice and strong, and easier to pronounce than Isaiah. The middle name is a family name. They’ve received very positive feedback from family and friends, who think it’s a good choice which fits in well with his siblings.
Congratulations to Claire and Liam for their new son, and for finding the perfect name for him, which has pleased everyone. It wasn’t that hard after all!

Love it! And also the idea that if he was a girl he would have been called Tilda.
Isn’t Tilda gorgeous? Still, if they have another girl, they’ve got a couple of names already lined up.
Are my eyes decieving me, or do these names use characters like @ and $ in place of letters? Is there a story behind that??
Just an attempt to stop them being Googled, for privacy. I think it’s fairly common practice in the blogosphere.
Fair enough 🙂 Sorry, I was just curious. I guess I don’t think about it because I generally focus on people who have already put themselves in front of the media.
Either way, I think it’s a nice sibset, and I’ve always thought Angus was a great name!
Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like I was scolding you! 🙂
