just thought we should have another thread about this baby with the ridiculous name

tribpot Sun 28-May-06 23:22:27

Would Brangelina not have been a preferable name? Merging the surnames as well would have been good - Brangelina Jolitt, or Brangelina Polie?

BeetrootOldDeer Sun 28-May-06 23:23:42

or just amy jolie or something anonymous for future life

WTF - Nouvel????

Hate the pair of them and what is the attraction with him???? - bet Jen would have had a baby with a nice normal name like Henry or George!!

Saw AJ in a film the other week and was appalled at her huge lips - thought they were supposed to be attractive - they looked like a baboons sphincter!!!!

Wasn't there a film about a dog called that? (I am fully expecting you all to tell me its something completely different )

PinkTulips Mon 29-May-06 12:35:06

mummyto2littleprincess Mon 29-May-06 22:47:12

thewomanwhothoughtshewasahat Mon 29-May-06 23:00:29

assuming its pronounced shy-low and assuming her surname is Pitt the spoonerism has had me smiling all day. I just love it. thank you Brangelina

Here's another aspect to the story:

WINDHOEK, Namibia (AP) -- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt celebrated the birth of their daughter in Namibia by donating $300,000 to help other babies in this impoverished southern African country, according to a government statement Monday.

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, born Saturday at Welwitschia Clinic in Walvis Bay, could get Namibian citizenship, government officials added.

While Welwitschia is private, most Namibians rely on state hospitals like one in Walvis Bay and another in Swakopmund that were to benefit from the celebrity couple's gift. The couple also pledged $15,000 for a school and a community center in Swakopmund. The couple had visited the center during their stay in the country.

Deputy Environment and Tourism Minister Leon Jooste said in the statement the money will be used to improve the two hospitals' maternity wards and will contribute significantly to the health of Namibian babies.

"We want to contribute to Namibia and the people who have been so gracious to us at this time," the celebrities were quoted as saying in the statement.

Pitt and Jolie had retreated to Namibia in April to avoid media attention while awaiting the birth of their third child, and the government here had rallied to them. Officials put tight security around their hotel and the hospital where their daughter was born, set up large green barriers on the beach to shield them from photographers and refused to grant visas to foreign journalists unless they had written permission from Jolie and Pitt to cover the birth. Police have also arrested photographers and confiscated film.

"The couple is thoroughly overjoyed by the event and have expressed their happiness to be able to share this experience in Namibia," said Monday's statement.

In another statement, Jooste's ministry said Namibian law allowed for the newborn to automatically become a Namibian citizen by birth. The statement said the citizenship issue will be discussed with the couple later.

good for them - strage choice of name but good charity giving.

I didn't mind it too much until I heard that Shiloh is a battlefield in the USA where many men lost their lives.
