Mum who has miracle baby after being told she’d never get pregnant again names her daughter after all her favourite characters from Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Star Wars

    A MIRACLE New Year’s Day baby has been named Bellatrix Daenerys Leia, in honour of her parents’ favourite fantasy film characters.

    The unusual moniker was chosen by mum Kay, 29, after she was told she wouldn’t be able to have any more children following an operation to remove pre-cancerous cells from her cervix.

    Just two weeks after being left devastated by the news, Kay and husband Glynn, 39, were delighted to find out they were pregnant with twins.

    The couple, who live in Runcorn, Cheshire, sadly lost one of the babies quite early on because one embryo absorbed the other, and revealed it was “touch and go” as to whether the other would survive.

    It wasn’t until halfway through the pregnancy that Kay Davies, who has four other children, decided she wanted to give her daughter needed a more ‘unique’ name. Up until that point the stay-at-home mum had been adamant she wanted to call the new addition Rosie.

    However, the die-hard movie fans had been watching watching reruns of hit series Game Of Thrones when inspiration struck.

    Their baby daughter was born four weeks early on 1 January, weighing 8lb and 6oz, and the couple revealed they’d decided on a new name for the tot.

    The names, all taken from strong female fictional characters, is sure to set the little girl apart from her peers in years to come – although might be a challenge for the tot when it comes to learning to spell them all.

    Bellatrix is taken from Harry Potter, Daenerys is from the Game of Thrones television series, and Leia was inspired by Princess Leia in Star Wars.

    Stay-at-home mum-of-five Kay said: “I had always said she would be called Rosie but then because of what we’d been through already, I decided I wanted something a little bit more unique and special.

    “I’ve always loved the name Bellatrix since I got into Harry Potter and then we were watching Game of Thrones and I said to my husband that I wanted to put ‘Daenerys’ in her name as well.

    “He said well if you’re having a reference to your favourite film so am I and that’s how we decided on Leia as well.”

    Since deciding on the unusual name the couple have kitted out little Bellatrix’s room and wardrobe with as much Harry Potter, Game Of Thrones and Star Wars related gear as possible, even splashing out thousands on bespoke pram accessories.

    Kay said: “We have bought anything and everything Bellatrix related that we can find, we even had a bar made for her pram with her name on it, but we’ve also got pop vinyls and figurines of the other characters in her name too.”

    But dad, Glyn, a delivery driver, warned that not everybody is enough of a sci-fi superfan to get the reference.

    He said: “Our family thought it was unusual but they’re all big Harry Potter fans too so they loved it, they said it was unusual but beautiful.

    “Some people don’t know where it’s from though and they sometimes get it wrong and call her Beatrice or Bella, it just depends which walk of life they’re from.

    “But the main thing is that it’s special to us.”

    Game of Thrones season eight begins on Monday 15 April at 9pm and can be watched on Sky Atlantic.
