Young mum named her new twins Ronnie and Reggie - because she had never heard of the brutal East End gangsters

A young mum named her new twins Ronnie and Reggie - because she had never heard of the infamous East End gangsters.

Mum-of-five Lisa Tarr, 27, had the premature boys in October and the pair were little fighters from the start - overcoming a nasty bout of bronchitis.

She named them Ronnie and Reggie because she kept coming across the names on Google.

The full time mum said when she announced the name people asked if they were named after the infamous Kray brothers.

But she said she'd never heard of the pair.

Lisa from High Wycombe, Bucks., said Ronnie and Reggie were NOT named after the gangsters.

She has proudly dressed them in Christmas outfits Reggie as Santa Claus, suited and booted in red and white, and put Ronnie in a cute Elf costume with a pointy hat.

She said: "I kept googling for boy names, and those two kept coming up.

''When I told people I was thinking of calling my twins Ronnie and Reggie, they asked me if I was thinking of the Kray twins.

''I'd not heard of them - obviously they're not named after that Ronnie and Reggie!

''But they're nice, old-fashioned names, and they suit my sons.

''Reggie is a bit bigger than Ronnie, so we thought we'd have to dress him up as Santa instead of Ronnie!

''But Ronnie is a little smaller, and is a little mischief - so he's definitely an elf!

''The two of them are so beautiful, and such tough fighters!

''My whole family is so smitten with them, and I've had such a positive reaction from my friends as well when they've seen them dressed like that!

''I couldn't believe how much other people love them too!

''They're my boys, I just love them to absolute bits!" Cuties Ronnie and Reggie were born prematurely in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Aylesbury, weighing just 4lb 6oz each.

They've had an uphill battle since October 21, and spent two weeks in November recovering from a nasty bout of bronchitis.

But Lisa's youngest boys have ''gone from strength to strength'' - and she ''can't wait to spend this holiday with them at their healthiest yet''.

Lisa - also mum to Jordan, 10, Kye, four, and Lyla, two - and her 30-year-old handyman partner Noel Oxlade are spending Christmas Day with Lisa's whole family.

She bought the cute Christmas outfits for Β£4 at Mothercare earlier this month.
