”I kept googling for boy names, and those two kept coming up!
A young mum named her new twins Ronnie and Reggie – because she had never heard of the infamous East End gangsters. When she announced the name people asked if they were named after the infamous Kray brothers but she explained that she named them Ronnie and Reggie because she kept coming across the names on a Google search. Lisa from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, said Ronnie and Reggie were NOT named after the gangsters.
”When I told people I was thinking of calling my twins Ronnie and Reggie, they asked me if I was thinking of the Kray twins. ‘I’d not heard of them – obviously they’re not named after that Ronnie and Reggie! The two of them are so beautiful, and such tough fighters. My whole family is so smitten with them, and I’ve had such a positive reaction from my friends as well when they’ve seen them dressed like that, I couldn’t believe how much other people love them too! But they’re nice, old-fashioned names, and they suit my sons”
Mum-of-five Lisa Tarr, 27, had the premature boys in October and the pair were little fighters from the start – overcoming a nasty bout of bronchitis. She has proudly dressed them in Christmas outfits Reggie as Santa Claus, suited and booted in red and white, and put Ronnie in a cute Elf costume with a pointy hat. ”Reggie is a bit bigger than Ronnie, so we thought we’d have to dress him up as Santa instead of Ronnie, Ronnie is a little smaller and is a little mischief – so he’s definitely an elf”
