Feeling sick to my stomach that Katie Price has just named her baby the same name as my son!

Currently holding my head in my hands rocking back and forth screaming "whhhhyyyyyyyyyyy?!?!"

Well, not really..... But I feel like doing that. I thought I had hit the jackpot with Jett, unique yet masculine and not too weird sounding and now KATIE PRICE has named her son Jett too.

Sorry, just had to have a rant. sad

Jet is a cool name, but then i have a crush on Jet Li so I would say that!

GemmaTeller Sun 18-Aug-13 20:54:09

Jett is nice - doesn't an actor have a son called Jett?

KP ruined it with Riviera

Well it is a celeb-child type name, so not massively surprising. John Travolta's son was called Jett, as is Hank Williams' daughter.

GiveMeVegemite Sun 18-Aug-13 20:59:17

John Travolta and Katie Price are on opposite ends of the celebrity spectrum though! It sounds quite respectable as the name of John Travolta's son, Katie Price just makes it sound tacky sad

Really? It just sounds like a celeb-child's name to me. Like Fifi-Trixiebelle, Princess or Apple.

Jett is my baby name which I've loved FOREVER. A beautiful, unusual but not ridiculous, cool but not inappropriate name. I've never mentioned it, never told ANYONE incase they stole it, and now she has ruined it completely. I can't use it in future incase someone thinks I'm some sort of Katie Price superfan (trust me, i'm not!) I feel your pain Vege! Just feel glad you got in there first, because I didn't angry

Can you re-name him Spike instead?

There were four Christopher's in my class at school, there were three children with the same name as my dd at her school. It's a name, no one owns it, if you want it use it. There are thousands of jetts all over the world same as any other name. smile

I think you are over reacting to be honest

It reminds me of my black labrador as hes called Jet!

GiveMeVegemite Sun 18-Aug-13 21:54:15

ashlee thank you for understanding....

I don't care that it is a celeb-type name, although I think it is a bit more normal than most, I just don't want it to become the new cool name for aspiring glamour model and WAG babies.....! Eeek.

I didn't even realise she was having another. Who's she with nowadays? It all fell through with that fighty man in the dress didn't it? I really must read more of that bot down the side of the DM website.

Agree with the poster who said it's a standard kooky celebaby name.

slenderman Sun 18-Aug-13 21:57:05

isn't that name from a wings song? which was supposedly about a dog or horse

it's a bit of a 'trying too hard' name isn't it though?

dopeysheep Sun 18-Aug-13 21:58:33

I prefer Katie Price to weirdo scientologist waxwork Travolta.
Jett is a great name plus he's a character in Home and Away atm.
Riviera reminds of the dodgy doctor from the Simpsons.

GiveMeVegemite Sun 18-Aug-13 21:59:00

Hahaha a 'trying too hard name' ?
Excellent, hopefully it won't become too popular then!

Beveridge Sun 18-Aug-13 21:59:52

Flip it round a bit and call them Jeff.

slenderman Sun 18-Aug-13 22:01:18

didn't mean to offend but with a name like that it's sure to attract comments.

it will be dead popular also now jordan has used it

That is a terribly naff interesting name.

To be honest, if anyone you know knows what she has called her baby, then what kind of circles do you mix in? grin

I felt the same when I named my cat Presley 13 years ago, then found out that a supermodel (poss Cindy Crawford?) had given her pfb the same name just a few weeks before.

Best friend was the same over the girls name Coco and Courtney Cox.

Chin up, no names are unique (unless they are dreadful).

Bluestocking Sun 18-Aug-13 22:04:57

Mintyy, I thought you'd named your DS Parsley!

GiveMeVegemite Sun 18-Aug-13 22:07:25

creature very true, you have put my mind at rest ;)

BasilBabyEater Sun 18-Aug-13 22:08:19

Has Katie Price had another baby then?

GiveMeVegemite Sun 18-Aug-13 22:13:05

minty it's not so much the uniqueness, although I am sad that it will probably become popular now, it's more the chaviness associated with it being Katie Price's baby name.

Ah well... I'll just move somewhere no one has ever heard of her. I hear Bhutan is quite nice?

Ilovemyrabbits Sun 18-Aug-13 22:20:16

I can't imagine Jett was ever on the middle class Mumsnet approved names list. Now Katie's picked it for her baby boy, I suspect it will be jettisoned to the island of lost names. Never to be seen again in respectable society. DISCLAIMER: Just my image of the Mumsnet Hoiky Pants Elders, who dictate whether Tarquin or Chardonnay are the banned, 'naff' names of the moment.
