How Princess Beatrice's mother Sarah Ferguson inspired new baby's name

> Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed their baby daughter Sienna last month – and the sweet reason behind the girl’s name has been revealed

On Friday, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi delighted fans as they shared the name of their baby daughter for the first time, revealing they’d called her Sienna.

In a personal tweet, Beatrice shared a sweet photo of the baby’s footprints and wrote: “We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.” Wolfie is the nickname for Edoardo’s son from his previous marriage to architect Dara Huang.

A family friend of the couple has now explained the sweet meaning behind the name Sienna.

They were looking for an Italian name which started with an S for Sarah, to honour the Duchess [Sarah Ferguson], and also reflected the golden rust colour of both the Duchess’s hair colour and Beatrice’s, which the new baby shares,” they said.

In keeping with tradition, the tot’s middle name, Elizabeth, has a sweet connection to her great-grandmother, the Queen. The name announcement comes 13 days after the baby’s birth on 18 September.

In comparison, Beatrice’s younger sister, Princess Eugenie, confirmed the name of her baby son August 11 days after he was born in February.

And similarly, it was two weeks before the Duke and Duchess of York shared Princess Beatrice’s name with the world after her birth in August 1988.

Edoardo also shared an adorable post on Instagram using the same photo as Beatrice did. “Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi,” he wrote. “Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us.

“Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget. This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying….that with every child you grow a whole new heart.”

He added: “A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.”
