British Prime Minister Boris Johnson welcomed a son with his fiancée Carrie Symonds just a few weeks ago. Boris has now shared the meaningful names he chose for his sixth child.
The couple have named their son Wilfred Lawrie Nicholas Johnson. Each name bears a special meaning. Both Boris and Carrie honored their grandfathers: Wilfred for Boris’s grandfather and Lawrie for Carrie’s grandfather. The name Nicholas comes from two doctors who worked to save Boris’s life while he battled COVID-19 earlier this year: Dr. Nick Price and Dr. Nick Hart.
Boris spent time in an intensive care unit in London to be treated for persistent COVID-19 symptoms. He has shown great appreciation to the English National Health Service for the care he received while being treated and for the care that he and his fiancée had while they welcomed Wilfred into the world.
We wish Boris, Carrie, and little Wilfred happiness and good health!
