A Dundee man living south of the border has paid tribute to his home city by naming his daughter River Tay.
Anthony Jackson, 26, persuaded his girlfriend Rebecca Larkin, 21, to give their newborn girl the unusual name.
The couple, who live in Bolton, Greater Manchester, welcomed River and her brother Tony into the world this week.
Tony arrived at 11.58pm on Monday while River came along just after midnight.
Anthony’s proud mother Caroline Wallace, originally from Fintry, shared a picture of herself holding River and Tony on social media.
The post received hundreds of reactions and more than 100 comments from Dundonians congratulating her on her growing family.
Caroline, 46, said she had been “overwhelmed” by the response, adding: “I’ve been blown away.”
The granny-of-six moved to Bolton about 20 years ago – but still has a Dundee accent and said she would “crawl home” to get it back if she ever lost it.
She said naming the baby girl after the Tay had been “daddy’s idea”.
“Anthony was born at Ninewells and he’s clearly proud of his Scottish roots and the fact he’s from Dundee,” she said.
“Now I’ll have a wee bit of Dundee with me all the time. I can’t wait to take her home, dip her in the water and to say to her: ‘This is your river, River Tay’.
“When Anthony told me he was going to name her River Tay I was on the verge of tears.
“I couldn’t believe it. I’m a very proud Dundonian – Dundee runs through me.
“I’ve still got family up there and I try to get up as much as I can.
“It’s the most beautiful place. You’ve got the countryside on one side and the beach on the other, and of course, the people.”
Caroline’s online post resulted in a deluge of well wishes, with the occasional joke – which she said she could see the funny side of.
“One person commented that they would name their next baby Dens Road Market,” she said.
“There are some daft names about but I think River is a lovely, unusual name – and there are more girls being named River these days too. She’s got a little bit of Dundee with her everywhere she goes.”
Both River and Tony are doing well and Caroline reckons she will be seeing a lot of them in the coming weeks.
She added: “I’m already on speed-dial, according to my son.”
