A MUM who had been told she would never be pregnant again has named her baby girl after her favourite characters from Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and Star Wars.
Bellatrix Daenerys Leia (pictured) is Kay Davies’s fifth child with her husband Glyn, a 39-year-old delivery driver from Runcorn, Cheshire. Kay, 29, said she felt her daughter needed a ‘unique’ name.
Doctors told her last year that she was infertile following surgery to remove pre-cancerous cells. Two weeks later, she discovered she was pregnant with twins, but lost one early on.
‘Because of what we’d been through, I wanted something a little bit more unique and special,’ said Kay, who gave birth on New Year’s Day.
‘I’ve loved the name Bellatrix since I got into Harry Potter, then we were watching Game of Thrones and I said to my husband that I wanted to put Daenerys in her name.
‘He said, “If you’re having a reference to your favourite film so am I”, and that’s how we decided on Leia as well.’
■ GAME OF THRONES is a growing influence on baby names, with children named after characters such as Daenerys, Arya and even Khaleesi from the fantasy drama. Canadian parents Christine and Daniel Marshall named daughter Daenerys, two, after their ‘favourite character’. Christine, 33, said: ‘Our families were shocked.’ Meanwhile, the name Arya is doing particularly well as the 135th most popular US girl’s name in 2017, up 807 places since 2014.
