Mum Names Her Twins Ronnie And Reggie Because She'd Never Heard Of Kray Twins
A mum named her baby twins Ronnie and Reggie because she'd never heard of the infamous gangster brothers.
Lisa Tarr, 27, says she was researching names for her little boys when she kept coming across the names Ronnie and Reggie online and thought they would be ideal.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, when the mum-of-four announced the names of her twins, people started to ask if they were named after the late East End gangsters.
But she says she had never heard of Ronnie and Reggie Kray - and insists her twins are most definitely not named after them.
Lisa, from High Wycombe, said: "I kept Googling for boy names, and those two kept coming up.
''When I told people I was thinking of calling my twins Ronnie and Reggie, they asked me if I was thinking of the Kray twins.
''I'd not heard of them - obviously they're not named after that Ronnie and Reggie!
''But they're nice, old-fashioned names, and they suit my sons."
Lisa shared an adorable snap of Ronnie and Reggie dressed as Father Christmas and an elf, explaining: ''Reggie is a bit bigger than Ronnie, so we thought we'd have to dress him up as Santa instead of Ronnie
''But Ronnie is a little smaller, and is a little mischief - so he's definitely an elf!"
The little cuties were born prematurely and weighed just 4lb 6oz each and faced an uphill battle when they were hit with a nasty bout of bronchitis - but, much like the original Ronnie and Reggie, they've proved themselves to be fighters and have gone from 'strength to strength'.
''The two of them are so beautiful, and such tough fighters," Lisa added.
''My whole family is so smitten with them, and I've had such a positive reaction from my friends as well when they've seen them dressed like that!
''I couldn't believe how much other people love them too!
''They're my boys, I just love them to absolute bits!"
The family are now looking forward to spending their first Christmas with the new arrivals.
