We’re loving the name the Olivers picked for their new baby boy.
After weeks of speculation, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools have announced their fifth child’s name.
The proud papa took to Instagram to finally, finally share the news. “It’s probably polite to formally introduce the new boy to you,” Oliver wrote, adding, “his name’s [sic] River Rocket Oliver we think it suits him and he’s a little gift and we are all very happy…. Thanks for all your kind wishes big love jamie and gang.”

The truly committed baby-name sleuths out there may have figured out the tot’s moniker earlier this week when the new mom shared an image of a print that reads, “Dream Big River,” along with an emoji of a rocket.
Anyone who is familiar with the Oliver family isn’t at all surprised by their unique name pick. River Rocket joins older siblings Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Buddy Bear Maurice.
What I love about the name River Rocket is just how darn cool it is. I mean, imagine little R.R. heading to school eventually. He’ll be badass. But in the most adorable way.

I’m also a big fan of how the Olivers choose names that seem to express who their children are, or perhaps the dreams they have for them in life. Of course the truth is, we don’t know the true inspiration behind the name River Rocket, but we can only imagine it’s a combination of a lot of love, joy, and excitement for and about this newest addition to the family.
