The 2fm star welcomed her first child, a baby boy named Wolf, with husband Fabio Aprile last June.
But when billionaire Kylie Jenner decided to choose the same moniker for her second child with Travis Scott after giving birth last month, Lottie was relieved she chose the name first.
Lottie admitted she was “both” delighted and upset that the 24-year-old had named her newborn son Wolf less than a year after her, adding: “My sister sent it to me and my reaction was like, ‘What are the f***ing odds? I mean, come on, what are the odds?’
“She obviously has very good taste. But I would be lying if I didn’t say I was very relieved to have gotten there eight months ago.”
The Dancing With The Stars winner feared she would face criticism for impersonating the Kardashian-Jenner family.
“Let’s be honest, if she got there before me, I probably would have had to endure people saying, ‘Ah, you copied Kylie Jenner,'” she said.
“At first I was a bit scared. And because I obviously love the fact that it’s a very unique name.

“And you know, now someone very famous has used it. But she has great taste in names!”
But Lottie needn’t worry any longer, because Kylie announced last week that her “son’s name wasn’t Wolf anymore” because she and Travis “really didn’t feel like it was him.”
Lottie, whose father was the late RTÉ broadcaster Gerry Ryan, said she still likes the name.
“I just love the name Wolf,” she told the Irish Mirror.
“I thought, ‘That’s a freaking cool name.’ Nobody messes with him, nobody in the class with the same name, and he looks like a wolf. He came out covered in hair from head to toe. He was a furry, furry boy, so I thought the name was just perfect for him.”
