Meet the kids, all named after something their parents love – including Bambi and Rocky-Tyson

Meet the kids, all named after something their parents love – including daughter Bambi from mom’s favorite Disney movie and son Rocky-Tyson after dad’s obsession with boxing. Mum Pippa Tinsley, 32, and husband Luke, 33, have named all six of their children – who range in age from 15 to three – after something close to their hearts, including their favorite bands, films and sports stars. Both parents are boxing fanatics and named their youngest child Rocky-Tyson, three, after Sylvester Stallone’s character Rocky Balbo and two-time heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. They also drew inspiration from the sport to name six-year-old son Hatton after boxing legend Ricky Hatton, a former British professional boxer. Pippa knew she wanted one of her girls to have a Disney-inspired name, and although “Bambi” started out as a joke, the parents quickly fell in love with the name they had given their four-year-old daughter. Her eldest, Joel Scofield, 15, was named after Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden and lead character Michael Schofield from the TV show Prison Break. Their eldest daughter, Autumn-Kyla, 13, was chosen in honor of her nanny Sara Houghton, 58, who loved the name. And Sara-Lileigh, 11, was named after the same Nan and is pronounced Sara-Lily, an unusual spelling that Pippa and her mother Sara “invented” to make it more unique. Pippa, a full-time student studying hairdressing and nails, from Grantham, Lincolnshire, said: “There are so many common names out there why not stand out a bit. “We’re both obsessed with boxing, so we knew there would be boxing-inspired names out there now old enough to get in on. “I also knew I was going to have a Disney name for one of them, and Bambi was on a list of ridiculous names, just kidding, but it just stuck. “Some people still don’t believe that’s really their name. “She’s such a wild child to be honest – we should have called her Mowgli.” “I love all our children’s names and I don’t care what anyone else thinks – they’re fun and unique.” Pippa had her eldest son Joel. 15 when she was 16 and was a huge fan of the American rock band Good Charlotte as a teenager. She was also a huge fan of the TV show Prison Break – which helped inspire her son’s first and middle names Having children named after a character from a movie The parents, including Luke, full-time carer, both fell in love with the name Bambi Earlier this month, Love Island star Molly-Mae gave her daughter’s name as Bambi on her Instagram page “It’s funny, Bambi was always just our daughter’s name, it was never talked about like that.” I both realized we love the name Bambi and it definitely fits her.” Two of their boys – Hatton, six, and Rocky-Tyson, three – are a combination of real and fictional boxer names. Pippa said the The name Hatton came to her in a dream, and And although she didn’t initially like the name Rocky for her youngest son, she quickly came up with it. “We grew up with Ricky Hatton and I’ve always been a huge fan,” she continues. “He’s such a big advocate for men’s mental health — I just love him.” I had a dream, we had called son Hatton and Luke agreed it was meant to be. “I wasn’t really sure about Rocky at first — it sounded like a dog’s name.” But Luke really wanted to call him that because it was his favorite movie growing up. “I had named everyone else so it only felt fair – as long as I had Tyson with me we compromised. I love Tyson Fury so it’s a little nod to all the boxers we inspire.” Their two middle daughters – Autumn-Kyla, 13, and Sara-Lileigh, 11 – also have unique names, inspired in different ways by their nanny, Pippa’s mother, Sara Houghton, 58. Pippa said, They’re not all that unusual, but both are still very special to us and have a lot of meaning.” “My mother Sara had a cancer scare and I wanted to name one of my children after her. “Mum also helped me figure out how to spell Leliegh – it’s so different and no one else spells it that way.” “Autumn was once again inspired by my mum, who wanted to call me Autumn but ended up going with Pippa. “I wanted Autumn Whitney, after Whitney Houston, but then the Whitney character came to Eastender – which put me off the name. “I don’t like associating their names with anyone else. “I love how different all their names are and none of them are really rude. They are all really special and have a story behind them.”
