Aoife Cogan and Gordon D’Arcy have revealed their baby’s unusual name

Irish Rugby star Gordon D’Arcy and his wife Aoife Cogan welcomed a baby daughter this week and today Aoife’s boss, the fashion show promoter Derek Daniels, was the first to reveal the little girl’s name. 

The Assets Model Agency owner tweeted: “Huge congrats to Aoifa and Gordan on the birth of beautiful Soleil X.”

A French name, Soleil translates as ‘sun’. Soleil could also be shortened to ‘Sol’, which also means ‘sun’ in Spanish.

The couple, who together run Form School, an innovative Reformer Pilates studio in Dublin 2, shared this gorgeous image of their baby girl’s tiny hand this week.
