Thomas Rhett reveals inspiration for baby names

Thomas Rhett and his wife welcomed two beautiful daughters into their  family. Willa Gray was adopted from Uganda and Ada James was born on  August 12. In a recent interview, the proud parents reveal the  inspiration behind the name choices. 

“Willa came from my mom’s  dad, his name is Willard, which translated  means innately brave. And so  we felt like Willa was a beautiful girl  name and also I think we thought it represented kind of her story, like  you have to be strong to  survive what she went through,” Rhett tells his record label, Big  Machine.  “And then Gray is short for Lauren’s brother Grayson and we  really love  Grayson’s personality and we love him so much. We just  thought Willa  and Gray [fit] really nice together. We’re a huge double  name family if  you haven’t known.”

“Ada  James, James comes from my uncle, my dad’s brother his name is James  Elias,” Rhett reveals. “So James is her middle name and Ada, Lauren said  that she had a dream and she kept hearing the name Ada in the dream.  And that is why we went with Ada. Pretty random but really cool.”
