Grizzly bearded hunk of Justified, A.J. Buckley, 35, is now a papa. He and oncology-nurse fiancee Abigail Oschse greeted a beautiful baby girl on January 19, reports E Online.
The couple chose to crown their first born Willow Phoenix Buckley.
Oh, wow what a celebrity baby name, right? Steeped in lore, we’ve got the nature-inspired Willow, a tree remarkable for its limitless grace and lithe appearance. Combined with Phoenix, a name used both for girls and boys that brings to mind the tragically talents River Phoenix who passed an untimely death from a drug overdose. Just recently, NCSI: LA’s Daniela Ruah named her newborn with husband David Olsen, River.
In classic mythology, a phoenix is a bird that lived about six centuries in the Arabian desert, then burning on a funeral pyre and rising from the ashes with renewed youth.
As we’re seeing, thus far in 2014, nature names and mythology-based names are on the rise.
The name presents a wonderful juxtaposition of gentleness and strength, a mixture sure to do a young lady well.
Congratulations to the growing, healthy and happy family.
