A Churchill baby

Hi all,

My mother emailed me regarding my cousin's new baby:

"She said she wanted a 'Churchill' baby this time - and she got one - she's cute, eh?"

I'm totally mystified about what on earth a Churchill baby may be (and mum will have gone to bed in NZ, so no luck asking her - I'm impatient :))

All I can imagine is a baby that looks like Winston Churchill - but I doubt that would be on any new mother's wishlist (?)

Is this a familiar phrase to anyone?

Cheers :)

    Was the kid by any chance born in Churchill hospital in Christchurch?
    Or was he built like a prop forward, a future candidate for a Churchill Cup-wining team?

    Hello, to any interested parties, I heard back from my mum, turns out the cousin WAS hoping for a baby who looked like Churchill. Um, takes all sorts I suppose...
