I have vaguely heard of Tyson Fury but today I read an article about him in The Mail (I know!). He has 5 children and 3 are boys all named Prince!

I mean how can they all have the same name? I assume they have nicknames at home but even so what is the point of naming them all the same. It's just totally weird and really seems rather stupid

When he shouts "Prince" at least one will answer.

I did laugh when I was having my morning flick through the side bar of shame on the DM- there was a picture of the family with the names underneath like-

“Tyson Fury with his wife Paris, sons Prince, Prince and Prince, and daughters Valencia and Venezuela”

Just save space and say Prince x 3.

I did like how Fury came across in the article though.

@1FootInTheRave I don't like or dislike him. I know nothing about him except that he is a boxer. I hate boxing

I went
To school with a family all with the same forat name. They were known by their second names

Meh, all the men in my birth family are called Mohammed, only having three people with the same name is nothing!

His kids, his choice.
I dislike Jaxon or and Other such weird spellings. I dislike surnames as first names and I’m not keen on place names like India or Chelsea, but I’ve had my kids, I’ve named them and what others choose to call their children really is of no concern to me.
Yes, it’s weird to name three children the same first name and yes I’m thinking of the joke about the Scouse/Essex/Brummie girl (or wherever you want to insult) with three sons all called Thomas. How do you tell them apart? asks a well meaning stranger. Well they all have different surnames! Replies mum. (Honestly, I never said it was funny and I didn’t write the joke)
There’s real money sues to worry about, other people’s kids names isn’t one of them.

PeterPanGoesWrong Fri 21-Feb-20 18:21:23

Issues, not money sues. Damn you autocorrect.

Jermaine Jackson’s son is called J’Majesty which is basically the best name in the world ever

Yes, I watched him on ITV last night. I did wonder why he called all three sons Prince. Venezuela (who came across as a nice girl) and Valencia are also unusual. Did I imagine it or has he had another son called Adonis? Is it perhaps Prince then a second name?

I only watched because there was so little on tv but I quite enjoyed it. His wife Paris is certainly feisty.

I saw a clip where they were discussing whether to pull their sons out of school at 11 or not. Tyson was against it, his wife was for.

What really stood out to me was that there was no discussion about their daughters. I guess they're in agreement on that...

Odd spellings are how names come about: Yonni has become Yanni, Johan, Johannes, John, Jon, Jan, Ian, Euan, Ieuan, Evan, Sean, Shaun, Sion .....etc.

Prince Tyson Fury II, Prince Adonis Amaziah and Prince John James is their full names, so easily distinguishable really.

ElsieMc Fri 21-Feb-20 18:28:40

It is actually Prince Adonis and have not added to their brood.

Poetryinaction Fri 21-Feb-20 18:28:53

I think his roots (Gypsy) have something to do with it. Maybe less unusual with his heritage.

Lordfrontpaw Fri 21-Feb-20 18:29:37

Prince John got off the best I think.

lynsey91 Fri 21-Feb-20 18:30:09

@PeterPanGoesWrong I get that he can call them what he likes and I am not worried about it. Just find it extremely weird and wonder why he did it?

I assume not for publicity as I am pretty sure I am not alone in not knowing what his children were called. I didn't even know whether he had children or was married as I am not interested in him.

I can't decide if they were too lazy to think of 3 names (although the girls have different names) or thought it was clever or funny. To me it just seems stupid and silly

The others celebrity who did that was michael Jackson. He only had two boys though. Prince Michael 1 and 2

But interestingly his daughter is Paris.

No connection I don’t think!

The name 'Venezuela Fury' endeared me to him for life.

lynsey91 Fri 21-Feb-20 18:32:06

@JRUIN see that then makes me think pretentious rather than stupid. Poor kids being lumbered with those names
