liam & Ch­eryl

Will Ch­eryl & Liam be able to agree on a baby name when the time comes?

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

It’s been a week of name spec­u­la­tion, fol­low­ing a spokesper­son re­veal­ing on 7 Novem­ber that Ch­eryl Fer­nan­dez-versini’s name ‘is in the process of be­ing changed’. Will she re­vert to her maiden name Tweedy or rein­vent her­self as just ‘Ch­eryl’? Her di­vorce from hus­band of 19 months Jean-bernard Fer­nan­dez-versini was granted last month and, as Look has re­ported, her boyfriend Liam Payne may have al­ready pro­posed as he’s des­per­ate to ce­ment their 11-month re­la­tion­ship.

Although it’s not yet known what name the singer, 33, will go by, and as ru­mours fly that Ch­eryl’s preg­nant, Look can re­veal that if the pair ever do have a baby in the fu­ture there could be a much big­ger name bat­tle for Ch­eryl and Liam.

As with many young cou­ples, and of­ten be­fore a baby is even on the way, the sub­ject of baby names has come up. Chezza has made no se­cret of her favourite – in a pre­vi­ous in­ter­view, she de­clared: ‘I’m ob­sessed with ba­bies. Of course I’ve thought about baby names. A mil­lion times. I like Al­fie for a lit­tle boy. ’ But we can ex­clu­sively re­veal that Liam, 23, thinks Ch­eryl’s choice is a ‘rub­bish’ name for a child (sorry, Chez) and he prefers the uni­sex moniker ‘Tay­lor’.

Dur­ing a video clip from One Di­rec­tion’s Van­cou­ver gig in July last year, Liam is seen ask­ing for help to pick a baby name for a preg­nant fan.

He says: ‘Boys, any boy names for a boy who is be­ing born? Con­grat­u­la­tions, by the way!’ Niall Ho­ran then ap­pears to sug­gest the name ‘Al­fred’, which seems to amuse Liam as it’s the name of his hero Bat­man’s but­ler. He replies: ‘Al­fred? Mmmm, you can rip it off – Al­fie?’ Which is also the baby name Ch­eryl ad­mit­ted to lik­ing. Louis Tom­lin­son opts for ‘Al­berto’, which was the name of his body­guard at the time, and Harry Styles unimag­i­na­tively sug­gests ‘Harry’.

Liam con­cludes: ‘Ob­vi­ously, you’ve got some good names there, but Liam would prob­a­bly be the best,’ be­fore adding: ‘I hope you got a good name, don’t use any of our names – they were rub­bish!’ (So Liam thinks the most pop­u­lar boy name of 2016 is ‘rub­bish’?) Cheeky.

While the pair weren’t ro­man­ti­cally linked at the time, Ch­eryl’s bound to feel a tiny bit peeved on dis­cov­er­ing what her beau re­ally thinks of her choice of baby name.

In­stead, ac­cord­ing to an in­ter­view with KRB Ra­dio in 2012 , Liam would pre­fer his first­born to be called ‘Tay­lor’. But not only is the rev­e­la­tion of Liam’s favourite baby name set to come as a sur­prise to Ch­eryl, his ex­pla­na­tion might, too. He re­vealed: ‘Tay­lor’s pretty neu­tral for a boy or a girl – that’s what I’m go­ing to call my first child if I have chil­dren.’ Ac­knowl­edg­ing the name’s uni­sex ap­peal sug­gests that, should Liam ever be­come a dad in the fu­ture, he’s likely to pre­fer to keep the baby’s sex a sur­prise, too.

Fe­male name­sakes in­clude pop star Tay­lor Swift and Gos­sip Girl ac­tress Tay­lor Mom­sen, while Twi­light’s Tay­lor Laut­ner and The Vam­pire Di­aries’ Tay­lor Kin­ney rep­re­sent male Tay­lors in showbiz. And while it’s not clear what ex­actly has drawn Liam to the name, we do know he wasn’t in­flu­enced by the Shake It Off hit­maker, as he picked it be­fore his band­mate Harry briefly dated Tay­lor Swift.

Ch­eryl might be a fan of Tay­lor Swift (hav­ing Tweeted about lik­ing one of her songs pre­vi­ously), but with pos­si­ble plans to move State­side, maybe she’ll take in­spo from her US pals, like the Kar­dashi­ans – Dream Payne, any­one?

Ch­eryl’s ru­moured to be at­tend­ing Eva Lon­go­ria’s Global Gift Gala this week, along with Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. Maybe Vic will have some baby name ad­vice? We like to think it will be a hot topic of con­ver­sa­tion.

Liam’s likely to want to keep the baby’s sex a sur­prise
