1. Gaia Romilly Wise (photo)
1.1 b. 4 December 1999
was known as "Jane.com" for two weeks after her birth as her parents decided
on a proper name.
Online reported the following on baby Gaia's name: The name Gaia
refers to the Goddess of the Earth. A spokesperson from London's Institute
of Classical Studies explains the origin of the name: 'Gaia was a beautiful
goddess in Greek mythology, but the child is not necessarily going to be
a good one, as although she is the mother of the earth, she is the offspring
of chaos. They may have trouble on their hands if she lives up to her reputation.'
Proud dad Greg says, 'We spent ages looking through books of names and
eventually settled on Gaia because of its environmental connotations. 'Romilly,
on the other hand, was the name of our friend's child and we thought it
was beautiful and wanted to follow suit.'
