Baby born to Volkswagen fan, named Victoria Willow (“VW”)

VW Beetle

Chris Redford of Eastbourne (on the south coast of England) is a Volkswagen enthusiast. He owns (and has only ever owned) VWs. He decorates his home with VW merchandise and memorabilia. He sports about 70 Volkswagen tattoos.

Chris and his wife Serena welcomed a baby girl in 2008. Her name? Scarlet Victoria Willow. That’s right — middle initials V.W.

(Given the extent of this man’s obsession, I’m surprised — but pleased! — that the VW reference isn’t more overt. It’s not even as noticeable as the double-color pairing of “Scarlet Redford.”)

About a month before she was born, Chris was quoted as saying:

I’ll be an easygoing dad. I won’t mind if she has boyfriends or gets into trouble at school — but she’d better not come home driving a Mini or a Citroen.

One thought on “Baby born to Volkswagen fan, named Victoria Willow (“VW”)

  1. Scarlet Redford – that’s funny.

    I have a friend who’s daughter has the first and middle initials V.D. I suspect she won’t use the D much.
