Amber first announced that she had welcomed baby Oonagh via surrogate on July 1, 2021 – describing the toddler as ‘the beginning of the rest of my life’.

In the birth announcement to her 4.6 million Instagram followers, Amber wrote: “I am so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago I decided I wanted a child.

“I wanted to do it on my own terms. I now realize how radical it is for us as women to think about one of the most fundamental parts of our destiny in this way. I hope we get to a point where it’s normal not to want a ring to have a crib.

“Part of me wants to maintain that my private life is nobody’s business. I also understand that the nature of my job forces me to take this into my own hands.

“My daughter was born on April 8, 2021. Her name is Oonagh Paige Heard. She’s the beginning of the rest of my life.’

What does the name Oonagh Paige mean?

One thing Amber failed to mention in her announcement was the reasoning behind her unusual choice of name.

According to the American site Nameberry, ‘Oonagh’ is believed to be a spelling variant of the Irish name Una or Oona.

The site notes that the name typically means “lamb,” derived from the Irish term “uan.” Oonagh is also the name of the Queen of the Fairies, a figure of 16th-century Irish folklore.

However, there may also be a Latin connection with the name Oonagh, meaning “one” or even “only child,” some sites report.

Her middle name, Paige, meanwhile, seems to have been chosen with a special family connection in mind. Amber’s late mother, who passed away in 2020 at the age of 63, was named Paige.
