When it came to naming the couple’s four-year-old daughter, they knew they wanted it to be something Disney-inspired. Pippa is a Disney fan, and the couple had a long list of names that they were considering for their baby girl. One of the names was ‘Bambi,’ which is the name of the deer from the 1942 Disney movie of the same name. The couple started using the name as a joke, but it eventually stuck. Mother Pippa explained, “I also knew I was going to have a Disney name for one of them and Bambi was on a list of ridiculous names, as a bit of a joke, but it just stuck.”

Bambi is certainly a unique name for a little girl. Pippa and Luke say that many people don’t usually believe that that is actually her name. They say, “Some people still don’t believe that’s actually her name… To be honest, she’s such a feral child – we should have called her Mowgli.”
