The decision by a celebrity to name her expected baby ‘John’ has shocked the entertainment world leaving dozens of heavily pregnant stars in a quandary over naming their children.
The as yet unidentified celebrity is reported as saying:’ If the baby is a girl, she will be called ‘Doreen. We were at first going for Marshmallow, Kilimanjaro, or Pelham 123, but wanted something a bit unusual. Then out of the blue we thought, ‘Why not John or Doreen?’ It was a really exciting moment, a sort of epiphany. We liked the name Epiphany too, by the way. ‘I just hope people don’t think we’re being provocative or pretentious,’ she said.
Victoria and David Beckham are said to be devastated. ‘People are free to give their kids what names they like,’ Mrs Beckham said. ‘But if our friends are going for fancy names like ‘John’ or ‘Doreen’ it’s going to make names like ‘Harper Seven’ sound completely ridiculous and make the parents a laughing stock.’
