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

It reminds me of the nice lady off Gladiators.

So, is it too early to start speculating as to what KP will call her next baby? I'm struggling to see a theme here! Harvey, Junior, Princess, Jett and...

Excuse me, probably totally off topic, but I serioulsy cannot understand why so many here on MN have put that Katie Hopkins woman down for her comments, when it seems to me most people here are from the same school of thought confused

I like it and I hope all goes well for her. Isn't he going to be in hospital for a few weeks? Must be scary.

When she has the next one, she should blow everyone's minds by naming it Carol or Kenneth. Confound expectations.

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 18-Aug-13 22:36:54

It sounds perfectly suited to her and her lifestyle. You obviously don't like or approve of her. I have similar feelings about naming a child 'Jet'.

Be nice to Travolta, he may be strange but no one should lose a child.

What about Jettson?

I loved that show

AnnaNimitty Sun 18-Aug-13 22:57:30

What a bunch of pretentious assholes you are!!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 18-Aug-13 22:59:14

These name threads bring out the snobbery in people the worst one was the cute name thread. It was appalling.

Jett hasn't suddenly become chavvy because Katie Price used it, any more than Harvey did!

scarletforya Sun 18-Aug-13 23:08:17

Makes me think of the Gladiator.

I had a baby name that I loved since uni, was going to call my first child it. (It's a unisex foreign name). Never told anyone about it.

Dh's brother got there first with his daughter so no way could I have used it. Was irrationally angry for weeks!

OnTheBottomWithAWomensWeekly Sun 18-Aug-13 23:15:07

This is seriously something to be bothered about? I cannot imagine how you possibly could care. To be fair, if youre thunking of a spectrum from Ms Price, to say, the duchess of cambridge, Jett is most firmly at the glamour model endof it. But so what?

elQuintoConyo Sun 18-Aug-13 23:17:27

I think you need to get over yourself.
And stop being so cruel.

meditrina Sun 18-Aug-13 23:17:30

Perhaps it's an homage to the current advert (featuring a deliberately bad version of that Joan Jett single)

saintmerryweather Sun 18-Aug-13 23:19:10

jett was already a bit of a stupid name before kp used it really

Something very conventional I bet

Anjou Sun 18-Aug-13 23:57:33

Wow. How incredibly rude and self indulgent some people on this website are. The OP isn't asking you what you think of her child's name, so I'm not really sure why some of you have taken it upon yourself to tell her how much you dislike it and yet haven't actually responded to her post. Are you expecting her to change it because some strangers on the Internet don't like it, or is it just that you like being spiteful?

OP, I totally get why you feel like this right now but in a few years time, I doubt many people (whose opinions you give a toss about) will have any recollection of her kids names. It's a distinctive name and I'm sure your DS will make it his own. smile

Nicknamegrief Sun 18-Aug-13 23:59:25

Katie Price was/is pregnant, where I have I been ....

Don't stress, if anyone knows who she is in 15 years time I'll be shocked.

OnTheBottomWithAWomensWeekly Mon 19-Aug-13 00:04:06

I dont think you mean self indulgent, it doesnt make sense. And if op can give it out, shell have to take it too.

pictish Mon 19-Aug-13 00:08:25

I agree with anjou!

How rude some of you are!! That is her child's name - her actual real child! None of you would dare be so rude about her son's name to her face would you?

Keep your sneering to yourselves for fuck sake you ill mannered gits!

OP - yanbu. When we called our ds1 Oscar, we had never heard of a single other Oscar (he is 11 now). Now they are everywhere, and there was even a baby on Eastenders called Oscat. Killed me. I'm over it now...but I get you. x
