is the name of Coleen and Wayne Rooney's new DS. I must admit I wasn't expecting that and really like their choice (though was, of course, expecting another "K* name).

IoraRua Sun 24-Jan-16 19:49:20

It's nice. Good luck to them!

WingMirrorSpider Sun 24-Jan-16 19:56:18

It's a lovely name. I'm not keen on the k theme but I suppose they'd already gone down that road with ds2.

I'm just imagining the scores of middle class MNers sadly crossing it off their list now it has been "ruined" grin grin grin

DH's first reaction was "football kit?!"

My friend had twins last week and called them Kit and Siena.

Bet she is gutted now.

dementedma Sun 24-Jan-16 20:08:13

Nice. B t Joseph Kit would have been better

zippyswife Sun 24-Jan-16 20:13:26

Yep magnum. I've just struck kit off the list!

Ham69 Sun 24-Jan-16 20:17:13

That was my first thought onemagnum grin I think Coleen comes across really well.

OneMagnumisneverenough Sun 24-Jan-16 20:21:45

I'm not really a media watcher to be fair but they seem like a nice enough couple. I've no idea why people get so po-faced. They seem to be bringing up a nice family, the children seem well cared for and they've made the most of Wayne's windfall due to his football talent rather than blowing it on drugs, drink and fast living.

Congratulations to the family. Not a Wayne fan but Colleen seems like a lovely mother and I really like the name. Baby Kit is very cute.

Sgoinneal Sun 24-Jan-16 22:15:33

Nice name, don't really like the three together just because I find it hard to say.

Laquila Sun 24-Jan-16 22:17:42

I mentioned this to my husband earlier and he said looked puzzled and said, " in bag?" hmm

Sophronia Sun 24-Jan-16 22:59:22

It's nice. Definitely prefer it to Klay!

HerbieRidesAgain Sun 24-Jan-16 23:00:56

Nice enough name, not my choice but its my favourite of all 3 of their chosen names. Mind I wouldn't want to say all three names quickly grin

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Sun 24-Jan-16 23:06:17

Isn't Kit the traditional diminutive for Christopher?
I like it.

I really dislike Kai though and dislike Klay even more.

Pigeonpost Sun 24-Jan-16 23:10:28

Kit is a fab name. I still don't understand Klay though. And why all K's anyway?

AmyC86 Sun 24-Jan-16 23:26:23

Kit, not sure on the name tbh.

Agree with the fact that it'll be crossed off a lot of lists now as the popularity will increase, especially around the Northwest. grin

Also agree that it's rather a mouthful to say all three together, Kai Klay & Kit especially with a scouse drawl.

Don't really understand the K theme but each to their own.

nooka Sun 24-Jan-16 23:27:24

Kit is a nice shortening for Christopher. I don't like it as a stand alone name and I do think it's a bit of a surprising name for a sporty family as 'kit' is so commonly used as slang for sports equipment.

I really dislike the trend of calling all your children the same initial, and think that Klay is just awful. I'd be a bit uncomfortable about children with the initials KKK, so I hope they plan to have at least one more child.

nooka Sun 24-Jan-16 23:28:38

Plus if you say the names together they seem to either turn into Kai, Kay, Kit or Kai, Klay, Klit. Which is a bit unfortunate grin

neonrainbow Sun 24-Jan-16 23:28:48

Kit isnt a proper name I've no idea why its so popular on here.

hownottofuckup Sun 24-Jan-16 23:30:08

Joseph's a lovely name.

Pigeonpost Mon 25-Jan-16 09:41:50

KKK!!! Holy shit. Surely someone would have pointed out the inappropriateness of that to them...

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 25-Jan-16 09:46:52

Kit Joseph is lovely. Much better than his brothers names.

calzone Mon 25-Jan-16 20:46:00

According to the news, they are being trolled for having KKK......
