As many readers had suggested, the moniker Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have chosen for their new daughter, Sunday Rose, does indeed have great meaning behind it, Nicole’s father Antony has revealed. The first name, which Antony and his wife Janelle suggested, refers to Sunday Reed, the muse of Australian artist Sidney Nolan. Antony explained that she was a "prominent patron of the arts in Victoria."
The name Sunday struck me as being a nice name for a woman, so my wife and I mentioned it. It was among other names being mentioned but they decided that was the name they wanted.
As for the middle name, Rose, Keith’s brother Shane confirmed that it was chosen in honor of their late grandmother, who passed away in 2004. He spoke to an Australian radio station about the birth, saying,
It’s a wonderful wonderful thing, I’m so, so proud.
Nicole’s mother Janelle and sister Antonia Kidman are currently in Nashville, TN, visiting the newest member of the family, while Antony is back in Australia, caring for the other grandchildren.
