Sibset of the Week: The Hirsts

Damien Hirst, from

Damien Hirst is a well-know, if somewhat controversial, artist with his origins in Bristol. Now reported as one of the richest British artists, one of the main themes of his works in death. This is how he garnered fame, from a series of works which heavily involved dead animals which had been preserved, and sometimes dissected prior to this.

Artists are creative people, and this seems to reflect in the names Hirst has given his three sons with girlfriend Maia Norman:

Connor Ojala

Cassius Atticus

Cyrus Joe

I think this is a great example of how sticking to a theme doesn’t necessarily mean choosing matchy names, something one couldn’t claim those middle names are. It’s also worth noting that this is the third sibset we’ve covered which includes a Cassius, the other two coming from the Whileys and the Taylors.

Where to go from there? With the range of names going on, it seems anything starting with C is a possibility, from Clemency to Charles; Cosmo to Charity.  The Cassius from the Taylor sibset was brother to Columbus, which could be another option.

One thought on “Sibset of the Week: The Hirsts

  1. Cassius and Cyrus do seem a bit matchy, while Connor is slightly left out, although I notice that the next two’s middle names begin with letters found in Connor’s middle name (A and J)

    Girl – Clementine Lulu Hirst
    Boy – Cian Lennox Hirst
