Baby Name Gold: Usain Bolt’s Daughter’s Name Wins the Internet

Usain Bolt. World’s fastest man. Eight-time Olympic medalist. Optus spokesperson. Sub-par soccer player. And now, proud father.

Usain and his partner, Kasi Bennett welcomed their adorable little lady on May 17 2020 but have since kept her name and photos under wraps.

Until now. The new father recently shared a few stunning snaps of his daughter and revealed her name on Instagram. And yep, it’s pure celebrity baby name gold.

GOLD. But, honestly, did you really expect anything less from the eccentric medalist?

Bolt raises the bar in baby name standards

Sweet Olympia is the first baby for Usain and Kasi and clearly the couple is in absolute awe of their new addition. Bolt recently shared a lovely message to his baby mamma while sharing some close-up pics of Olympia Lightning Bolt.

Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family. I Love you and happy 21st birthday.”

Celebrity baby name gold 

Celebrities are known to think outside the box when it comes to their baby names but we reckon there has never been a baby with such an apt name before.

OLYMPIA – the daughter of an Olympian (also the name of Serena Williams’ daughter).

And LIGHTNING.  You know, world’s fastest man, travels faster than the speed of light, Bolt’s signature move. It’s all just a little too perfect, isn’t it?

We are giving a gold star to Usain and Kasi for their baby name ingenious. Sure, Olympia is probably going to HATE her parents when she realises her middle name is Lightning, but, hey, it’s definitely original.

You know what they say, Lightning never strikes twice.
