The traditionally-masculine name denotes meanings of strength and that of a bear.

The Scottish and Celtic meaning derives from “artos” which stands for “bear” while the Welsh definition is “bear hero”.

It is also a name of great nobility with the legendary British leader King Arthur having the moniker.


The name Ever has a Scandinavian meaning of “wild as a boar” and in Hebrew the moniker stands for “beyond” and a variation of Eber.


The seasonal moniker is used for the coldest season of the year and has a Native American meaning of “season of renewal”.

The English word of Winter is believed to come from the Proto-Germanic noun wentruz which in turn is derived from the Proto-Indo-European, wed, which means wet.

Caspar announced the arrival of his son on Instagram on Sunday, sharing a picture of a bunch of flowers to his story.

He wrote: "Mum and baby both healthy and happy 🙂 Extremely grateful."

He then added: "'I don't ever address the public attention that comes with Ellie's job, but during this magical and personal moment we would really appreciate being able to enjoy our privacy – Thank you x."

Ellie kept her pregnancy to herself for months, only announcing the news in February, in an interview with British Vogue.

The Burn songstress said she discovered she was with child as she and Caspar celebrated their first wedding anniversary.

Ellie explained: "That was [around] the time when Caspar and I went away briefly when we were allowed to for our one-year anniversary, and that's basically when we found out. It was crazy because it was our one-year anniversary."
