Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ baby name holds a tribute to Game of Thrones, the show that made Sophie a household name.
It has now emerged Sophie and Joe have apparently named their baby Willa, which fans have noticed has a connection to the series that made the new mum famous, Game of Thrones, where Sophie played Sansa Stark for eight years.
Two characters appeared throughout the show with the name Willa, including one who appeared twice in season five as a wilding.
The other character called Willa appeared during season eight, as a servant in Winterfell whose allegiance was to House Stark.
According to Nameberry, Willa originates from a short form of Wilhelmina, and its origin is from old German culture.
The meaning of Willa is “resolute protection.”
News the actress and the Jonas Brothers singer have become parents broke less than a week after Sophie gave birth.
The couple continued to keep quiet on the news of her pregnancy, but were pictured on multiple occasions strolling around LA while Sophie was pregnant.
The happy milestone comes one year after they got married in France, a few weeks after a spontaneous Las Vegas ceremony.
Fans are now eagerly-awaiting the couple to share photos of their new baby on social media.
