According to Independent UK, Jodi said that the lockdown was a really good time in their lives despite the pandemic and they named their daughter after it. She also mentioned that she has no regrets about their name choice.
The mother of one shared, “We had been trying for a year to get pregnant and lockdown meant I was furloughed and Rob was working less. I think we just relaxed a bit because we had so much more time than we normally would, and then we found out I was pregnant.”
She also added that when her daughter was born a new variant of COVID (Omicron) was spreading so they knew she would be a lockdown baby. “So we named her Lockie for lockdown - we liked the name, and the lockdown was a good time in our lives because it was so relaxing,” she told the publication house.
Lockdown was not only the reason for Jodi naming her baby but the couple explained that there were several incidents where the word repeatedly appeared. Jodi, who is a professional hairdresser, stated that one of her customers who came to her surname was Lockey at the time when the couple was considering names.
Jodi also mentioned that people might not like names but she doesn’t care what they think.
