Romeo? 🤔

(TBH, Apple is just as bad...)

But, seriously, celebrity names are stupid!

How long ago did this happen?

SneakyGremlins Sun 11-Feb-18 22:10:58

It's better than Chicago.

Notso Sun 11-Feb-18 22:16:14

I think Brooklyn is worse.

Glumglowworm Sun 11-Feb-18 22:16:58

At least Romeo is an actual name!

How long ago did this happen?

About 423 years ago I reckon.

To be honest, I'm more surprised anyone thinks calling your kid Coriolanus is a good idea.

HappyLollipop Sun 11-Feb-18 22:32:00

Romeo is an actual name though at least it's not Pilot Inspektor that was just too absurd even for the realm of wacky celeb kids names!

IMightMentionGriddlebone Sun 11-Feb-18 22:36:25

It was Tybalt I felt sorry for.

I went to uni with a Lysander.

Seriously what is wrong with the name Romeo? Don't like it then don't bloody name your child it.

hazeyjane Sun 11-Feb-18 22:43:43

And Aeneas, Dr Butts and Bottom.....hang on I'm sensing a bit of an arse theme here.

Seems quite reasonable compared to Rocket Ayer, child of Pharrell Williams. smile <---- Happy

I really like Apple. Am I on my own? Not sure about Romeo, I use it as slang for " womaniser". But I'm not sure if that's widespread?

JanetStWalker Sun 11-Feb-18 22:53:46

That was my beautiful dog's name. RIP Romeo x

Notgotajarofglue Sun 11-Feb-18 22:54:53

My ds is Romeo blush

Who is responsible for that travesty? shock

PenelopeChipShop Sun 11-Feb-18 23:03:14

I actually think Romeo is the most normal one of the Beckham children!

Is it really right that the new Kardashian baby is Stormy?! Haven’t had time to google... mind you I don’t think i’d expect anything less!

Topseyt Sun 11-Feb-18 23:03:26

I would agree. I think they are dreadful names and I cringe when hearing them.

PenelopeChipShop Sun 11-Feb-18 23:04:01

The most normal NAME I mean obviously, I don’t actually know him.... grin

Leicesterpiggott Sun 11-Feb-18 23:04:53

It's Stormi. With an i. Obvs wink

Beeziekn33ze Sun 11-Feb-18 23:08:22

I thought Harper was odd but have got used to it now. It's fine and Romeo is a normal name in some countries.

myusernamewastaken Sun 11-Feb-18 23:15:15

Got to be better than Maud and Morag !!!

fusushumi Sun 11-Feb-18 23:26:35

It was Tybalt I felt sorry for

It's a good name for a cat though because it means Prince of Cats

PleaseDontGoadTheToad Sun 11-Feb-18 23:27:01

Is it really right that the new Kardashian baby is Stormy

Is her middle name Night? Or better still, Stormi Knight. If it isn't then I think someone has missed a trick.
