Willow is an English baby girl name derived from the willow tree, which is believed to have magical powers. It's been a popular choice in literature throughout the years, from Shakespeare to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Harry Potter. Other celeb parents who've chosen Willow include Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Michelle Monaghan and Pink. The name hit an all-time top spot on the U.S. baby name chart last year at No. 111, and is even more popular in other English-speaking countries, featuring in the top 50 in Scotland, New Zealand and Australia in 2015.

Ethan is a Hebrew name meaning "strong, firm" and is currently the 6th most popular baby boy name in the U.S. It's one of those classic names that still appeals as a modern choice, with famous bearers from history (revolutionary war hero Ethan Allen), literature (Edith Wharton's novel Ethan Frome) and the acting world (Ethan Hawke). Pop culture references include the wolf on Teen Wolf, Tom Cruise's character in the Mission Impossible movie series and the main character in the Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal video games. As well as being hugely popular in the U.S., Ethan also features in the top 25 baby boy name charts in England, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.

Make mine a double.
