Jamie Oliver and Jools have announced their new baby son’s name (it’s not Paprika)…

Squiggles? Paprika? Probably not Turkey Twizzler

The Oliver parents are known for going off-piste with baby names. The couple, have three daughters and two sons, including the newborn baby boy, who according to Jamie’s Instagram post, came out weighing more than 8lb (or 16 packets of butter).

It’s fair to say that the kids’ names get more unusual as times goes on. First born Oliver child Poppy’s full name is Poppy Honey Rosie Oliver, which is a bit on the unusual side but not a lifelong burden. Next up you’ve got Daisy Boo Pamela Oliver, then things start to get really quirky with Petal Blossom Rainbow Oliver. Clearly by the time the ink had dried on Petal’s birth certificate the Olivers had thrown all caution to the wind and decided to name their first born son Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver.

Now, there’s a part of us that can’t stop hoping the outlandish name trend will stay on an upward trajectory and by the time the couple have their seventh child they decide to call it Bohemian Rhapsody Oliver. However, the couple have just revealed their baby son’s new name and it is… River Oliver!

We digress. The Oliver’s penchant for giving their kids zany names left the internet doing what the internet does best: went really silly and hilarious. So of course we all started trying to predict what J and J were going to dub their adorable new born, with varying degrees of seriousness.

On the other hand, maybe they’ll shock us all. Little baby Greg (definitely not Greggs) has a nice ring to it.
