Lockdown was a difficult time for many but not for Jodi Cross. For her and her husband, it was the best time of their lives. Hailing from Wixams in Bedfordshire, she had been trying to start a family for about a year. Cross, 36, was pregnant with her first daughter during the second wave in 2021, according to the Independent.  When their baby girl was born on November 28, 2021, Cross and her husband, Rob, 26, wanted to name their child something unusual. So, they named her Lockie, after the lockdown.

Cross works as a hairdresser and unlike others, she calls the lockdown a "really good time" in their lives. So, they wanted to name their child after it. “We had been trying for a year to get pregnant and lockdown meant I was furloughed and Rob was working less," she said. “I think we just relaxed a bit because we had so much more time than we normally would, and then we found out I was pregnant." “When she was born there was the new strain of Covid coming about — Omicron — so we knew she'd be a lockdown baby," she added.
