"My daughter's name is Phoenix. Picked that name in memory of my mom. She passed away from cancer and was cremated. To me it was like a rise from the ashes with no more pain. What was amazing was that my daughter was born with the exact same red hair as my mom. She's beautiful." Mar. 30, 2018:

"Phoenix is such a lovely name!

"We named our son Phoenix. My man is from China orginally so I wanted a name that gave him that link to his father's culture but also for other reasons. Most of my niece's/cousin's kids are named after places (not on purpose!) so since Phoenix is also place name, I thought it was fitting :-) I love that my son has an original name (it is very rare in the UK) We hope he'll love it when he's older and all his friends have boring names like Jack, Callum and George."
