Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes have just welcomed their first child together and now talk has turned to their unique baby name. 

The YouTube couple announced that their baby girl arrived on Sunday, August 29 and introduced her to the world with adorable photos. 

Much to their fans’ delight, they decided not to keep us all in suspense by revealing they’ve named her Ottilie Rue. 

It’s a little different to the Blossoms and Daisys that were among the top predictions for baby names, and it’s certainly a unique choice. 

Zoe, 31, and Alfie, 27, are yet to announce what inspired them to settle on the moniker but some quick research has revealed the traditional meaning. 

What does Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes’ baby name mean? 

Zoe and Alfie have named their daughter Ottilie Rue Deyes. 

The name Ottilie is typically a female name and said to be a French derivative of the German masculine name Otto. It can mean ‘prosperous in battle’, ‘riches’, ‘prosperous’ or ‘wealth’ – which honestly sums the newborn’s YouTube-famous parents to a tee. 

It was most popular in the US in the 19th century but Zalfie are no doubt bringing it back into fashion. 

Just two weeks before Ottilie’s arrival, Alfie admitted to Metro.co.uk that they were struggling to find a name.

He explained: ‘I wish we had [decided on a name]. I just really want to see her little face!

‘I know so many people that have named their babies – the baby’s been born and then they’ve changed the name. I didn’t realise how hard it was to make a decision on the name.

‘We’ve got one in mind that we really, really like, but I want to see her little face beforehand.’

When was Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes’ baby born?

The couple announced the arrival of their daughter three days after Zoe had given birth. 

She wrote in an Instagram post: ‘She’s here! Meet Ottilie Rue Deyes 💕 29/08/21.’

It included an adorable photo of the newborn looking just past the camera, dressed in a mint green onesie and wearing a tan headband.

New dad Alfie shared another photo of the tot sleeping in the same outfit.

Zoe, 31, announced that she was pregnant earlier this year with a sweet video shared on her social media. 

In the clip, the content creator showed off her tiny bump, and she was filmed getting her ultrasound.

Zoe and Alfie then held up their scan for the camera and kissed the photo.

The star wrote in the caption: ‘We’re super excited to share with you, that our baby girl will be joining us in September.’
