Zara Tindall Reveals why she had Second Thoughts about Daughter Lena's name

Zara Tindall and husband Mike Tindall's daughter Lena celebrated her third birthday this month, but what you might not know is that the little girl almost had a different name!

In fact, the doting parents initially wanted to name their daughter Elena but decided against it after realising it would make her initials ET. Zara made the revelation when speaking to the Telegraph in 2018, saying: "I liked the name Elena but I didn't want her initials to be 'E.T.' so she's Lena."

At the time, a spokesperson for the couple revealed that they had simply picked the name because "it is just a name they liked". In Ancient Greek, Elena is the name for light, and Lena is a shortened version of that word. Lena's middle name is Elizabeth, no doubt a touching tribute to her great-grandmother the Queen.
