It seems we are heading into the realms of dumb, sheer stupidity when it comes to naming our children these days. I just read an article where some of the most ridiculous names ever invented have been given to celebrity children. Who are these people trying to kid?

There are better ways of getting your name in the papers than giving your children such idiotic names. Some of them may sound cute when the child is still a baby, but what happens when they get to schools age, of even worse, when they are adults. I would be utterly ashamed to have to tell, for example, the tax man or a prospective boss that my name is Pilot Inspektor. Have people totally lost it these days?

Here are some of the other names that celebrities have given their children:

Blue Ivy Carter (Beyonce and Jay Z)

 Little River Rocket joins siblings Daisy Boo, Petal Blossom, Poppy Honey and Buddy Bear

Sparrow James Midnight (Nicole Richie and Joel Madden)

Apollo Bowie Flynn (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale)

Maple Sylvie (Jason Bateman)

Apple (Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow)

Sailor Gene (Liv Tyler and Dave Gardner)

Cricket and Birdie - Two Sisters

Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson (Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson)

Reign Disick (Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick)

Banjo Patrick Taylor (Rachel Griffiths)

Briar Rose (Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen)

Bingham ‘Bing’ Hawn Bellamy (Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy)

Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher

Buzz Michelangelo Fletcher (Tom Fletcher and Giovanna Fletcher)

Titan Jewell (Kelly Rowland and Timothy Witherspoon)

Bodhi Ransom (Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green)

Blue Ivy Carter (Beyonce and Jay Z)

I can just imagine some of these poor kids introducing themselves to their new friends, “Hi my name is Rocket Zot Worthington but you can call me Rocket!”, an utterance that would be swiftly followed by howls of laughter.

I have no idea how this stupid craze started, but I am sure the kids will regret it when they get older. They have my sympathy.

Crazy! You Couldn’t Make it Up: Series 1 Episode 2

What’s in a name? It would appear that many parents don’t think hard or long enough about such an important event judging from some of the examples dredged up recently. How about Hazel Nutt, maybe Pearl Button or Ray Gunn, Jo King, Terry Bull or Barb Dwyer, Paige Turner, Lee King, Sonny Day or Tim Burr? Americans suffer from the same problem with Carrie Oakey, Bill Bord, Annette Curtain and Anna Prentice.

We think nothing about surnames, but when coupled with certain christian names some become hilarious. The giving of these comical christian names may be thought funny or quirky at the time of birth but can in fact be a curse in later years. Take the case of Stan Still, 76, who said his name “has been a bloomin’ millstone around my neck my entire life”. During his RAF service he says his commanding officer took great delight in shouting; “Stan Still, get a move on” before roaring with laughter.

Rose Bush of Coventry said she had had many comments about her name combination, but thankfully they had all been positive. On the other hand, Jenny Taylor had many a ribald comment come her way (No, I didn’t get it immediately either, but think about it!). I guess its nice to read about it and have a laugh, but I’m glad I don’t have to live with it!!!

If you want to ‘Go Out’ in style and have plenty of cash, you may be interested in something that was exhibited at the International Luxury Fair in Verona. If you wish to make your mark at your funeral service you can  buy a golden coffin, complete with cell phone (I guess in case you are not quite dead when they bury you, or you can call ahead to order your suite in Heaven) for a mere $381,000 (€280,000).

Also on sale, an armchair covered in the skin of 20 crocodiles and decorated with diamonds, rubies and gold for a paltry €200,000, a hand-crafted billiard table covered in gold sheets for only €60,000. Other items for sale to the super rich were a 24-carat gold racing bike, a crystal covered piano and a boat running on a Ferrari engine. Some people have so much money they don’t know what to do with it. I would be happy to give them some ideas!!!

Something a little less frivolous concerning the open court Hearing about the establishment of Inquests for the deceased in the July 7 2005 bombings in London. The bombers lawyers have enraged relatives of the victims by referring to the bombers at the hearing as the “apparent bombers”. The four men concerned were all found guilty and are currently in prison, but it would seem their lawyers are still not willing to admit their guilt. It was without doubt a disgraceful display of the utmost insensitivity.

The lawyers have been severely criticised for their use of the word ‘apparent’ by all the relatives and many journalists who wrote; “These lawyers have no shame, morals or heart”. Personally, I never thought lawyers had any of these attributes!!!

A Vietnamese man thought to have the longest hair in the world has just died at the age of 76. Although no-one is absolutely certain, Tran Van Hay’s hair was estimated to be 6.8 metres long. It would seem he began to grow his hair at the age of 26 because having a haircut often made him ill. He lived his life as a herbalist and during the day balanced his mass of hair on his head, protecting it with a scarf. Its understandable that he never washed it, it would have cost him a fortune in shampoo!!!

The Queen’s grand-daughter Zara Phillips (28) and her fiancé, rugby player Mike Tindall have just splashed out £6,000 on a bath for two. It was so large, four men had problems carrying it into the mansion. The couple are busy doing up their £800,000 Georgian house and have so far spent over £250,000 on the renovations. I’m sure I would not go so far as to spend that amount of money on a bath, but at least if they have an argument there is room for them to retire to their respective ends and sulk!!!

There is no doubt its a weird world at times!

Roy.
