Former reality television contestants Jessica Zinna and Matthew Gallagher welcomed their first child in September last year, and named their son Jax [pictured].
Jessica was a contestant on Beauty and the Geek, and Matthew was an eligible bachelor on The Farmer Wants a Wife. Although neither found love on their respective dating shows, they met by chance at a Melbourne nightclub in 2012, and formed an instant connection. The couple now live on Matthew’s potato and cereal crop farm in Waubra, just outside Ballarat, and are planning to marry.
Mayor of Ballarat, Joshua Morris, and his wife Louise, welcomed their fourth child on February 12, and have named their son Xavier Alan. Xavier Morris was born six and half weeks early at the Epworth Freemasons Hospital in Melbourne, and weighed 2.3 kg (5 lb). He will be staying in St John of God Hospital in Ballarat until he is bigger and stronger. He joins big brothers Will, aged 4, and Isaac 3, and big sister Charlotte, aged 1.
Joshua was elected to the role of mayor last November, and has taken a year’s leave from his job as physical education teacher at Darley Primary School.
Former Canberra radio host Lisa Ridgely, and her partner Daniel Box, welcomed their first child on Australia Day, and have named their son Lachlan James. Lachlan Box was born at Calvary Hospital in Canberra, and weighed 3.02 kg (6lb 6oz).
For many years, Lisa was a popular breakfast presenter on Mix 106.3, and she now works at the PR firm Morris Walter. Daniel is the venue manager at Ainslie Football Club.
Jax is a great nickname, but seems to be lacking. I am not a huge fan of Jackson, but would prefer to see Jackson (or any Jack/Jake) and Jax as a nickname.
Xavier is one of the those names ripe for a huge comeback. Unique, but not weird. I have a nephew Simon Xavier and I have teased his Mom about those (SX) initals
Alan–NMS reminds me too much of older men. However, if this is a family name, I am all for it! I am a fan of the entrie clan’s names here, classic.
Lachlan–not a name I think I have ever heard on a child. Read about it, yet, but not actually heard.
James–when my son was young James was his favorite of the Thomas gang so I hear James and think of a red train. Son used to tell me I would get a grandson named James. Still love the name though!
Xavier is already popular here in my state its a top 50 name my mum has two in her small daycare
Thanks for that! It is beyond interesting to me to see how names are the same, but different around the globe.
no worries I agree Neveah isn’t too common here
