Sienna Miller's Baby Daughter Is Called Marlowe Ottoline Layng Sturridge. Is This The Most Colourful Celebrity Name Ever?

11 July 2012 by

Oh those celebrit folk. They do come up with the most colourful baby names, don't they? Elle Macpherson caused much brow-wrinkling when she named her daughter Aurelius Cy, Gwen Stefani impressed us with a son called Zuma and how could we forget Fifi Trixibell who was at the mercy of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates' name-choosing skills. Yep, a simple Lucy or Anna just won't do.

Today, the latest celebrity baby name has been revealed. Ladies and gents, meet Marlowe Ottoline Layng. Pretty impressive, no? And who's the proud owner of such a distinctive moniker? Sienna Miller's newborn daughter. Hmm, can we call her MOL for short?

The gwageous actress gave birth to her first child with Tom Sturridge last week but there's been no confirmation about the gender, name or whether said child came out looking boho-perfect. Until now.

Earlier today, Sienna's sister Savannah wrote on her Twitter page: 'Marlowe I love you..... ' and Grazia Daily has had confirmation of mini-Miller's full celeb-tastic name. Were Sienna and Tom inspired by Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe? They are rather la-de-da after all. Or perhaps they took a cue from actor Jason Schwartzman who named his daughter Marlowe Rivers when she was born in 2010?

Either way, this has, naturally, got us thinking about the most bonkers baby names ever so let's take a break and play a quick quiz, shall we? In the gallery above, you'll find eight celebrity mothers and the challenge is to match them to the names of their famous offspring (below). Can you do it? Can you? Can you?

a. Harlow Winter Kate
b. Sunday Rose
c. Daisy Boo Pamela
d. Apple Blythe Alison
e. Willow Camille Reign
f. Phoenix Chi
g. Nahla Ariela
h. Lily Rose Melody

Elizabeth Faraone (Mon Jul 16 20:25:18 BST 2012): Perhaps the first two names are after Christopher Marlowe & Lady Ottoline Morrell. THE PASSIONATE SHEPHERD TO HIS LOVE. by: Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593). COME live with me, and be my love;. And we will all the pleasures prove. That hills and valleys, dales and fields, Woods or steepy mountain yields. And we will sit upon the rocks, Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks. By shallow rivers, to whose falls. Melodious birds sing madrigals. And I will make thee beds of roses, And a thousand fragrant posies;. A cap of flowers, and a kirtle. Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle;. A gown made of the finest wool. Which from our pretty lambs we pull;. Fair-lined slippers for the cold, With buckles of the purest gold;. A belt of straw and ivy-buds, With coral clasps and amber studs: An if these pleasures may thee move, Come live with me, and be my love. The shepherd-swains shall dance and sing. For they delight each May morning: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me, and be my love.
