Kate and Steve didn’t think they’d ever be able to choose a baby name, because she liked old-fashioned names, and he preferred something more modern. However, within a few weeks of writing into the blog, they were able to agree on both a girl name and a boy name.
Kate had a strong hunch that she was going to have a boy, and it turns out she was right. Their son was born early and unexpectedly, but in good health, on January 8, and his name is
little brother to Madeline.
Kate saw the name Louis amongst the celebrity baby name announcements on Waltzing More Than Matilda, and thought that an anglicised Lewis would make a better fit with Madeline. Both names are English versions of French names, and both are classics in Australia, with a similar level of popularity. The middle name is a family name, chosen to honour a loved one.
Congratulations on your baby boy, Kate and Steve, and for not only reaching agreement on a baby name, but finding one which is such a perfect match with his sister.
