So where did Summer Moon’s unique moniker come from? Shay shared her sweet relationship with both words—and a surprising TV connection.
“Back in high school, I was a huge fan of The O.C. specifically Rachel Bilson,” Shay confessed. “She, to this day, is one of my favorite actresses.” Shay even wants Bilson to play her if there was ever a Vanderpump Rules movie adaptation! Selena Gomez can play “young Scheana,” Shay joked.
Bilson played lovable character Summer in the hit SoCal series. “It’s just been a name that I’ve always loved,” Shay continued.
Davies also thought it was a “perfect fit” as his eight-year-old daughter in Australia is named Winter. “Hopefully when they meet each other they’ll be able to bond over that moment,” Davies added. The half-sisters even share the same birthday!
Shay felt compelled to add Moon as a middle name as she was “manifesting a healthy birth” with moon rituals following her past miscarriage. “The moon was something I prayed on,” Shay emotionally explained. Summer also was born on the “night of a full pink supermoon,” so it was a perfect name for her.
