Sibset of the Week: The Richies

The Moon’s reunited with their son, from thesun.co.uk

I don’t watch any soaps, and never have, but even I couldn’t escape the outrage earlier on this year about the controversial plot surrounding Ronnie of Eastenders, who lost her newborn son to cot death. She responded by swapping her dead baby with that of the Moon’s new son and thus the baby-swapping storyline hit headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Shane Richie plays Alfie Moon in Eastenders, and is often cited as being one of the reasons his name, Alfie, has risen suddenly to the top of the boys chart. Alfie Moon was born Alfred William and first appeared on Eastenders in 2002. He left in 2005, and then returned again in 2010. His son, Tommy, was born on the same day as Ronnie’s son James.

But back to Shane Richie, who married Christie Anne Goddard in 2007. Together they have one son, followed by two daughters:

Mackenzie Blue

Lolita Bell

Romani-Skye Angel Shelley

When I first saw the names, I mistakenly believed him to have three daughters, but alas, Mackenzie is a lad and was born in 2006, a year after J.K.Rowling welcomed her daughter, Mackenzie.

    I don’t mind Mackenzie on a boy if he goes by Mack, but Kenzie is too cutesy for me. I don’t like Bell instead of Belle or even Bel, but it just seems so nouny. Little RSAS’s extra names feels unbalanced to me.

    Not a fan to be honest, but they’re interesting.

  2. And of course he has Shane Jnr and Jake with Colleen Nolan.

    Mackenzie is ten times more popular on boys than girls, and Kenzie is prominent on boys in Scotland.

  3. Oh yeah, now they seem like British celebrity baby names!

    Romani seems kind of wrong to me …
