London: British Prime Minister David
Cameron and his wife have named their new baby Florence Rose
Endellion, giving her a Cornish name to mark the region where
she was born, his office said on Wednesday.

The baby was born yesterday, arriving earlier than
expected and interrupting the Camerons` two-week family
holiday in the popular tourist region of Cornwall in southwest
England.
The prime minister promised to give her a
traditional Cornish name in honour of her birthplace, and he
and his wife Samantha settled on Endellion to add to the
classic British names of Florence and Rose.

Endellion derives from St Endelienta, a female
martyr who became the saint of the north Cornwall parish of St
Endellion, a village near where Cameron and his family were
staying when the baby was born.

The 43-year-old premier said the arrival of his
"unbelievably beautiful girl" was "absolutely thrilling".
He and Samantha, 39, have had four children
together but their first born, Ivan, died last year aged just
six. He had severe epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

Their other children are Nancy, six, and Arthur,
four.
