The parents to three chose their son's first name Blake, which is a common unisex name both for boys and girls.

There are conflicting meanings behind the name, which first originated in old English as a surname before it was adopted as a first name.

It is thought to originate from the word black, but according to etymology Blake can can equally mean dark-complexioned as it could mean pale, perhaps derived from the idea of fire which "burns bright".

The couple picked out Hampton for their son's middle name, which is of Old English origin, and literally means "home settlement".
