Every so often, we discover a television show that inspires us in strange ways. 


Peaky Blinders is a show about violent gangsters, and yet we find ourselves pretty obsessed with the various characters. 


If you are also a massive fan of this brilliant series, why not look for baby naming inspiration from the characters?
