Bingham Bellamy?

Sounds like a Christmas song - Bingham Bellamy on high, in heaven the bells are ringing...

Is this name for real???

MelinaM Thu 14-Jul-11 21:27:54

It is indeed!!! It reminds me of Mr Bingley in Pride & Prejudice grin

hoofhearted Thu 14-Jul-11 21:28:31

nay nay and thrice I say nay

There are good family reasons for it, though. His mother's maiden name was Bingham, and her [step]-grandfather (Kurt Russell's father) was named Bing. And Hawn is obviously after Goldie.

It would have sounded a bit nicer if they had maybe double barrelled their surnames.

Bingham Hudson-Bellamy sounds better than Bingham Bellamy

Sounds a bit like a firm of solicitors, but presumably the child will grow up in Americal where surnames as first names are more commonplace so I think he'll be OK!

Awful but Bing for short is ok. It's the Bingham that is really stupid. Mind you, older brother Ryder...... ryder confused as in shagger? oh dearie me.

True chandlerbing, it sounds a lot more normal in the usa. So he won't have a weird name there. or at least not a really weird name.

It's one of the worst names I've ever heard. Bing or Bingham are bad enough on their own but coupled with Bellamy it's like some stupid comedy name. Bing!!?? Just NO!

Really, Bingham Bellamy shock? For a boy or girl?

FairyArmadillo Fri 15-Jul-11 14:54:04

Oh... I assumed from the title it was another one of those baby name wind up threads. But it's real!

NerfHerder Fri 15-Jul-11 15:08:58

Oh- I thought they'd had a boy named Arthur! WHo was that then?

MelinaM Fri 15-Jul-11 15:17:51

Claudia Winkleman named her son Arthur last week.

'Bing a Ling' grin

I think its quite cute!

Lonnie Fri 15-Jul-11 20:29:10

I like it

MugglesandLuna Fri 15-Jul-11 21:47:51

Bingham is a town near where I live.

Its an odd name. I understand Hawn is her Mums name but its just too close to horn for it to be nice.

Karbea Fri 15-Jul-11 22:24:41

Nope. I agree that it sounds like a firm of solicitors.
