The couple are obviously fond of original names for their children, with Marvel Mae being the latest addition.

While many comic book fans may reach for the likeness of the Marvel Universe, the name is actually of French origin which means "to wonder or admire".

It's a rarely used name which can be for a boy or girl, and for parents looking for a non-gender specific name.


As for their daughter's middle name Mae, it is of English origin and derived from the month of May.

May is actually connected to Maia, the Roman goddess of growth and motherhood, with Mae being an old-fashioned alternative spelling that is commonly used as a middle name.

Billi and Andy other children also have interesting names, with their second son's full name "Wolf Nine".
