Noel Fielding’s ‘surrealist’ gender neutral baby name

What did the Mighty Boosh and Great British Bake Off star call his new baby?


New parents Noel Fielding and Lliana Bird have reportedly picked a moniker for their little one ?


The Sun‘s Dan Wootton reports that the name they’ve chosen is Dali, a tribute to surrealist painter Salvador Dali, whom Noel is said to greatly admire.

Noel and Lliana, who’ve been together for 8 years, have not revealed whether their new arrival is a boy or a girl. They tend to keep pretty mum about their personal lives.

But, if the news is 100% true, we reckon this name is really lovely choice, either way ???

Regardless, it seems that Dali has been a huge influence on 44-year-old new dad Noel.

He apparently based his surprising decision to host Great British Bake Off on the fact that Dali himself did a chocolate advert, and appeared in several other ads throughout his career as a surrealist artist.

Shortly after the news was announced, Noel’s pal Serge Pizzorno, from the band Kasabian, even said: “We figured Salvador Dali did a chocolate advert, so that sort of makes it all right.”
