The first-ever Bachie baby has a name that’s right on trend: Willow.
The daughter of Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski shares her name with quite a few other little Aussie girls.
Willow was sitting at number 30 in the popularity charts last year, and has been in the top 100 in Australia since 2009.
In fact, it’s more popular in Australia than in the US (number 96) and the UK (number 51).
Okay, so it’s a nature name. That’s one reason why we love it. We’re loving lots of nature names for girls at the moment. Ivy, Poppy, Hazel, Lily, Holly, Savannah and Summer are all in the top 100.
There’s no doubt Willows are beautiful trees. When the singer Pink named her daughter Willow six years ago, that’s what she was thinking of.
“The willow is my favourite tree,” Pink told People magazine.
“I grew up near one. It is the most flexible tree and nothing can break it – no wind, no elements. It can bend and withstand anything. I love that sentiment and I want that for her.”
Other celebs have called their daughters Willow. Actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith chose the name back in 2000 (although they probably found their inspiration a little closer to home).
