The expectant parents — who already have a two-year-old daughter named Emerson — have been preparing the nursery room for their triplet boys in the months leading up to their birth in early 2024.

At just 26 weeks pregnant, the couple couldn’t contain their excitement when they announced the monikers of their three boys — Locklan James, Wilder Scott and Brisbane Leigh, who’s named after the major Australian city.

“The name of baby C is Brisbane Leigh,” Jordan said in a now-viral Facebook video.

“So it might be Bris for short and where we got this one is … so Leigh is my middle name and then I lived in Brisbane, Australia for six months and it just meant a lot to me.

“I jokingly said the name ‘Brisbane’ once … I don’t think it’s a name but we’re making it a name. I was like, ‘Brisbane that’s kind of cool’.

“I want to tell you the meaning for Brisbane. We looked it up after we locked in this name and the meaning of Brisbane is ‘breaker of bones’.”

His wife Rachel laughingly interjected, “Which is horrible for triplet boys” to which Jordan responded, “No, he’s going to be a sports player”.

Earlier in the video, the couple explained the stories behind the names of Baby A and B.

“Baby A is Locklan James. Locklan comes from the land of lakes and I’m from Minnesota so the land of 10,000 lakes so that means a lot to me and James was my uncle’s middle name,” Jordan explained.

“Baby B is Locklan’s identical and his name is Wilder Scott. Wilder is just a name we fell in love with and we actually found out Jordan’s grandmother grew up in Wilder, Minnesota so that made it feel extra special.

“Scott is Jordan’s dad’s name and it’s my grandmother’s maiden name so sentimentality on both sides.”

The couple said they were set on the names.

“Those are the names … it’s out into the world. We have locked in the names so if you don’t like it it’s too late,” Jordan said, to which his wife added: “We’ve made banners for the nursery.”

“All of you have been such a big encouragement to us so we wanted you to feel part of this process with our family.”

Many were divided over the “awful” choice of baby names — with several Aussies stunned over “Brisbane”.

“But seriously, Brisbane is a terrible name. What the?” one said.

Another joked: “These are my kids, Brisbane, Caboolture and Mackay.”

One suggested: “You should name your next kid Ipswich.”

Another revealed: “Sorry, not a fan of Brisbane but love the other two.”

While one shared: “Sorry but all horrible names … I live in Brisbane and can’t wait to get out of here before the Olympics.”

However, many jumped to the couple’s defence, with one suggesting: “Love Brisbane Leigh. I’m born, bred and still living in Brisbane, Australia.”

Another said: “I love how all three names have special meaning for you. And as a woman who is Brisbane born and raised, I think it’s sweet that you would name one of your boys after this city.”

One added: “Very beautiful names. Each name has sentimental origins. Love them all! Congratulations.”

Another shared: “Love the names, especially the name Brisbane as I am from Brisbane, Australia.”

One suggested: “I love Brisbane it’s different you don’t ever hear it.”

While another said: “I don’t really mind Brisbane Leigh. But I think the name Leigh spelled that way is a girl version, while Lee is the male version.”
