i am supposed to be having a boy in 3 weeks and picked my name only to find out yesterday that stupid Matthew McConaughey had a baby and used the same name. should i still call my baby this name or will he be one of a million with the same name in 5 years? i am all annoyed.

posieflump Wed 16-Jul-08 22:18:48

don't be daft, who cares what some celeb has called their baby
I don't even know who Matthew McConaughey is

Don't like the name myself, a bit Essex

OverMyDeadBody Wed 16-Jul-08 22:19:18

still use the name if you like it, it doesn't matter

good god ceelo, are you going to bump into Matthew McConaughey at your local asda?

call your baby what you like!

MrsSylar Wed 16-Jul-08 22:20:02

Aaarghh!
Someone tell me what the name is!!

WigWamBam Wed 16-Jul-08 22:20:36

If you really like the name, why is it an issue?

Ceelo Wed 16-Jul-08 22:21:03

the name is Levi. the stupid celebity is that actor who is in a load of B films...i am living in the US so maybe noone cares about this actor in England. Hope so and can't wait to move back home.

Matthew McConaughey had a baby?

That's novel.

I'd be more bothered that he was named after denim tbh wink

OverMyDeadBody Wed 16-Jul-08 22:22:54

I actually quite like him as an actor, especially in the Wes Anderson films.

Tyke1 Wed 16-Jul-08 22:22:59

FGS get a grip my friends dog is called levi

ssd Wed 16-Jul-08 22:23:01

Paul Young (80's singer) has a daughter called Levi

seems another "stupid celebrity" beat you both to it grin

OverMyDeadBody Wed 16-Jul-08 22:23:17

lol rebel!

Ceelo Wed 16-Jul-08 22:23:22

janeashersbookofspacecakes it is a bit more Old Testament than Essex ... but thanks anyway.... either way I know my mum will hate it

zippitippitoes Wed 16-Jul-08 22:24:00

i really dont think you need worry there are not loads of apples fif trixibelles or any other daft names people have more sense

there arent even loads of brooklyns

Ceelo Wed 16-Jul-08 22:24:11

not in wes anderson films

ilovemydog Wed 16-Jul-08 22:24:17

Oh who cares! You like the name!

It's biblical, so Hollywood actor didn't exactly invent!

wessexgirl Wed 16-Jul-08 22:25:45

Oh, look, don't worry about Matthew McConaghey. It's not like everyone suddenly called their dds Apple because Gwyneth and Chris did, is it?

Levi is a nice name - you go ahead and have it. There was a character on 'The Bill' with my dd1's full name (fore and surname) but we still went with it (and then the character got written out, phew!). Just have what you like smile.

Ceelo Wed 16-Jul-08 22:26:32

so you all hate the name too...OK my other name is James...i know.... but i am 8 and half months pregnant. i can't be relied on to make any rational descisions.
