It’s a challenge coming up with a unique baby name these days. You’ve got Pixies and Strummers and Khaleesis leaving maternity wards without anyone so much as batting an eyelid.
But goodness knows, Brendan Davies and Emma Langley from Somerset in the UK did their best. Their third child, a baby daughter born on December 21, is called Harlow Star.
The name really meant something to them: “We know the given meaning for the name Harlow is freedom-loving, adventurous, adaptable, intellectual, easygoing, progressive and sensual,” Davis told Essex Live, “whereas Star was chosen for close family and friends that are no longer with us.”
The problem was, it also meant something entirely different to around 80,000 other people.
