Gwen Stefani has named her 3rd son, Apollo.

My twins are called Apollo & Artemis, so I must say she has good taste in names grin wink.

I think it's a great name. Very classic of you too - for twins!

Sweetishdelight Sat 01-Mar-14 23:32:31

Hahaha! Joking, right?

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 23:34:11

No joke.

scottishmummy Sat 01-Mar-14 23:37:37

Nice name.but everyone will think you copied her

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 23:43:02

Not really. My twins are 4 month older...

AuditAngel Sat 01-Mar-14 23:43:53

Davina McCall stole mine. She called her son Valentino, like DS.

Only others I have heard of were Rudolf Valentino and Valentino Rossi (plus it is BIL's middle name as he was born on Valentine's day. DS was not)

AuditAngel Sat 01-Mar-14 23:44:21

And DS is older than Davina's son.

MoreCrackThanHarlem Sat 01-Mar-14 23:45:34

I thought Davina's son was Chester?

scottishmummy Sat 01-Mar-14 23:45:54

Nah,4month nothing in time people will say oh Gwen stefani,assume you copied
Like any similar aged Romeo I'd think VBeckham

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 23:46:10

I think Valentino is a beautiful name and Valentino Rossi is a beautiful man grin

MultipleMama Sat 01-Mar-14 23:50:33

No really fussed if people think I've copied. Friends and family will know he was named first and strangers can think what they like. grin

scottishmummy Sat 01-Mar-14 23:55:57

You'll be adept then when folk query if you copied Gwen
Like the strangers you've not yet met..nursery,baby,group,schools who'll ask
Love both the names btw

thornrose Sat 01-Mar-14 23:57:34

I'd think you'd copied off an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta grin

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sun 02-Mar-14 00:02:59

I thought Davina's DS was Chester too? Is Valentino his mn?

gingerchick Sun 02-Mar-14 00:04:31

Mel Sykes kid is valentino her ex dh Italian Davina has a son called Chester

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sun 02-Mar-14 00:05:52

Also, I didn't even know Gwen Stefani was pregnant again. Kingston, Zuma & Apollo are all very different name choices - I quite like Apollo though.

MultipleMama Sun 02-Mar-14 00:07:26

Never seen Real Housewifes... is it a reality show or a soap? confused

If they ask, I'll just say no he was born while her son was still cooking in the womb. They can assume what they wish. The mums I meet may not even know who Gwen is and I don't attend baby groups so that's one striked off the list! grin and thanks, I think they're great too! smile

scottishmummy Sun 02-Mar-14 00:08:39

Don't sweat it no one will think less of you fir having same name as gwen

MultipleMama Sun 02-Mar-14 00:09:32

Santa - I didn't until DH told me he saw it while browsing online. It must not have had much publicity.

scottishmummy Sun 02-Mar-14 00:10:48

Great Nantes,really strong

scottishmummy Sun 02-Mar-14 00:11:36

Gah,great names -strong, beautiful names

It's a reality show (watched by few) and there was a very handsome man named Apollo married to a woman named Phaedra.

I think Gwen Stefani is very cool and off a lot of people's radar so it's unlikely to be an issue.

squoosh Sun 02-Mar-14 03:57:15

Oh I do like Gwen.

OP it must be frustrating after choosing such an unusual name to have a celeb use it a couple of months later. At least it wasn't a Beckham or Katie Price baby!
