‘Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Hope Chooses Phoebe for Baby Name – Taylor Enraged by Misguided Gesture?

The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers indicate that Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) announce their baby’s name over Christmas. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) could snap if Hope makes a misguided gesture with her choice of baby name. Some brand-new spoilers point to Hope choosing a name for her baby that means to honor someone but is interpreted as a slap in the face. If this happens, Taylor might do the unthinkable even though she’s promised she’s sane.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Hope Logan and Liam Spencer Announce Baby Name

B&B spoilers for Christmas say that Hope and Liam reveal their unborn daughter’s name at the annual Forrester affair. While it’s quite possible that Hope could name her baby after Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), other related spoilers point to another possible selection. Lots of people are on-hand for the big holiday event including Maya Avant as Karla Mosley returns from her recent maternity leave. We can also expect to see Hope, Liam, Brooke and others at the table.

New Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say that Pam Douglas (Alley Mills) and Charlie Webber (Dick Christie) have a dinner disaster. The Logan ladies bail them out and the big question is whether Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) sabotaged the food. Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) asks everyone to say something nice about someone they’re not fond of. Then Liam and Hope announce the name they’ve chosen for their baby. Will they strike the wrong chord with their choice?

Phoebe Forrester – Steffy’s Dead Twin in Recent B&B Spoilers

Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for the week of December 10 mention Phoebe Forrester (MacKenzie Mauzy). WIth Taylor Hayes spending time with Kelly Spencer (Gabriel Sporman), she’s got family (and babies) on her mind. Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and her mom reminisce on her twin and her tragic death at such a young age. It is the 10-year anniversary of Phoebe’s death and emotions run high as Steffy remembers her twin and Taylor the daughter she lost.

If you recall your B&B history, you know Taylor Hayes blames herself for her daughter’s death. So she’s holding tight to her new granddaughter and fighting fiercely to protect Steffy’s interests. No doubt others will acknowledge the decade since Phoebe’s death – December 9, 2008. This sad remembrance could get Hope Logan’s mental wheels turning as she considers baby names. Hope might unknowingly set off a powder keg with Taylor if she makes a misstep in naming her baby.

Bold and the Beautiful – Hope Sets Off Taylor with Well-Meaning Gesture?

There is no official B&B spoilers confirmation on what name Hope and Liam Spencer chose for their upcoming arrival. However, there are some spoiler clues that she might choose Phoebe as the name, with all the best intentions. Longtime Bold and the Beautiful watchers know that Hope Logan isn’t a schemer by nature. She usually means well and often loses because she doesn’t fight dirty. Right now, she’s honestly trying to build a modern family with Liam, Steffy, and their kids.

Since Steffy’s baby girl is named Kelly, after Liam Spencer’s mom, Hope cannot honor her husband with that naming. So she needs to turn elsewhere for inspiration. By naming her daughter Phoebe, Hope might be trying to further cement the strange bond they all share. Steffy Forrester is trying too. She and Hope discussed raising their daughters as true sisters and not engaging in their mothers’ war.

It might seem strange for Hope to choose Steffy’s dead twin’s name for her unborn girl on Bold and the Beautiful. Then again, it’s exactly the kind of gesture Hope would make. She would mean well and Steffy might see the gesture as it’s meant – a peace offering – and decide she likes it. That would give both their daughters family names to honor those lost but still precious to them. But Taylor Hayes would go nuclear if this happens.

Christmas Fireworks Ahead?

Usually, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers keep things peaceful at the holidays. The Forresters, Spencers, and Logans usually play nice for the day and reserve cake brawls for weddings. There’s also no confirmation yet if Taylor Hayes has a seat at the table for the family dinner. If she doesn’t, Christmas might go off without a hitch and she finds out about the baby name later. A B&B casting call teased that Hope Logan will have early labor and a preemie baby.

If Hope decides Phoebe is the name she wants, that would unhinge Taylor. It could also explain Hope’s premature labor if Taylor stresses her out (or lays hands on her). Taylor Hayes would hate the idea of Hope Logan raising a baby named after her daughter. Taylor’s hanging on by a thread day-to-day, so you never know. Then again, maybe Hope will make a safer choice and go with something generic like “Joy” as a counterpart to her own name Hope. We’ll know soon enough.
