Each to their own I suppose but I think Nicole Ritchie's new son's name is POSSIBLY one of the worst sleb baby names yet

Are there worse, or am I just being a meanie???

mazzystartled Wed 09-Sep-09 21:27:21

I think its kind of ok

No worse that the Apple/Peaches type thing

I know a Wren and a Lark in real life.

Sparrow? Really? Poor kid. Makes me think Hunter and Hercules aren't all that bad.

CristinaTheAstonishing Wed 09-Sep-09 21:29:23

But Mazzy, Sparrow is a bit...weak for a boy. For a girl too, in fact. I can only think it suitable for a spindly-legged chick due never to become a hen.

I thought this was going to be a link to her extreme thinness - I didn't notice the catagory.

Has she really called her son Sparrow? Do you have a link?

Wren, Robin, Lark are all okay. Sparrow hmm

Just be glad it's not Thrush.

Sorry but ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

These celebs are CRAZY.

It's odd for a boy, well for a girl too. But to be sparrow like is to be frail and tiny. Not a very masculine name....

Were they thinking Captain Jack Sparrow?

rubyslippers Wed 09-Sep-09 21:31:53

oh - it's bad

but am sure they love it

LynetteScavo Wed 09-Sep-09 21:32:44

She's had anohter baby?

I thought she only just had a baby!

LynetteScavo Wed 09-Sep-09 21:35:24

tis true!

mazzystartled Wed 09-Sep-09 21:36:58

It is better than Harlow

muggglewump Wed 09-Sep-09 21:37:17

That's bloody terrible!

fishie Wed 09-Sep-09 21:37:27

nothing wrong with Sparrow

Meglet Wed 09-Sep-09 21:37:39

Sparrow does sound a bit feeble. I expect he will end up with a cool nickname though.

CristinaTheAstonishing Wed 09-Sep-09 21:58:39

So they've had a Harlow and a Sparrow. I suggest next to be named...Marrow.

Louby3000 Wed 09-Sep-09 22:05:03

Ha, Love the name Marrow!!
Sparrow is such a drippy name for a boy.

pania Wed 09-Sep-09 22:19:24

Sparrow is just awful. Can't even think of a possible nickname to make it less ridiculous.

Harimosmummy Wed 09-Sep-09 22:22:10

In 20 years time, it'll be cool.

I hate it, personally, but I can see it catching on.

posieparker Wed 09-Sep-09 22:24:03

For a boyshock, terrible for either but a boyshockshock

NorbertDentressangle Wed 09-Sep-09 22:24:53

Hells teeth! Sparrow? Poor boy.

posieparker Wed 09-Sep-09 22:25:27

On holiday my dss met two little boys from he States called Hunter and Chase. (My DS mistook them for Hunter and Catch).

LadyPinkofPinkerton Wed 09-Sep-09 22:27:09

Thank goodness I wasn't the only one who didn't know she was pregnant again, Lynette.

Awful name btw. Hope he doesn't grow up with skinny legs.

pania Wed 09-Sep-09 22:29:32

I think he might well do that, since both parents are quite scrawny. He will hang around at cafes, eating leftovers off people's plates.

Honestly, if they wanted a bird name, couldn't they have called him Eagle or Hawk or Falcon?

Chunkamatic Wed 09-Sep-09 22:57:50

Maybe she is still on drugs... that is ridiculous.
