MAFS: Hidden detail in Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson's twin sons' names

Married At First Sight couple Bryce Ruthven and Melissa Rawson welcomed twin sons Levi and Tate earlier this month.

And many fans have since noticed the babies' names have a special meaning when they are brought together as a portmanteau.

Levi and Tate form the word 'levitate', which means to rise or hover in the air, typically by means of supposed magical powers.

The twins' names may well be a reference to how the babies have lifted Bryce and Melissa's lives to a new level of happiness.

However, some critics have described them as gimmicky.

'LEVITATE???' one asked on Facebook, while another wrote: 'Lovely names, but Levi and Tate... Levitate?'

A third fan commented: 'Levi-Tate... really?'

The couple, both 32, revealed their newborns' unique names in an interview with New Idea magazine on Monday.   

Bryce said they wanted to choose names that were 'modern' and 'promoted positivity' after the boys were born 10 weeks premature.

'We wanted unique names that had a modern feel to them. We also wanted names that promote positivity for them and our new family,' he explained. 

'Levi means "harmony among others" and Tate means "cheerful" so it suits them perfectly.'
