Jools previously told Gurgle that she loves having fun with naming her kids.
"They all have more than one name because I couldn't decide. I'm not sure where Petal Rainbow came from – apparently it's a My Little Pony! I wanted to call her Rainbow but Jamie told me to calm down."
"With Buddy it was quite fun choosing a boy's name, as I hadn't done it before. And I hate people's opinions on names. Whatever you call your baby is your decision."
