top ten list of bizarre names for celebrities' children and post-script on Paris riots

Just published is the list of top ten bizarre names for celebrities' children (from - no it is not on their website).

1. Moon Unit - Frank Zappa (see also No 7)
2. Apple - Chris Martin/Gwyneth Paltrow (What will they call the next kid, orange or pear? How about banana?)
3. Misty Kyd - Sharleen Spiteri (singer from band Texas)
4. Geronimo - Alex James (bass guitarist from band Blur)
5. Heavenly Hirani Tiger Lily - Michael Hutchence/Paula Yates
6. Dandelion - Keith Richards (Rolling Stones, kinda cute but she changed her name to Angela)
7. Dweezil - Frank Zappa (Just as bad, his other two, Emuukha Rodan and Diva Muffin - sound like drag queen names).
8. Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q - Bono (U2)
9. Zowie Bowie - David Bowie (Zoe would have been better)
10. Rufus Tiger - Roger Taylor (Queen)

Michael Jackson's mocked up pathetic royalty, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II did not get into the top ten.

Some blame should be apportioned to the birth Registrars for allowing such ridiculous names to be registered.

Hopefully these celebrities will leave their children enough of a fortune so they never have to work (except as fellow musicians or some other entertainer). They obviously do not expect their children to enlist in the military or work as bank clerks, medical doctors or civil/public servants.

Further to yesterday's post on people giving their misguided opinions about the Paris riots, here are examples from American newspapers:

Wake up, Europe, you've a war on your hands by Mark Steyn of the Chicago Sun-Times (of 6 November 2005) - full of venomous hate which is very unhelpful, and his views are just as extremist as those he is criticising.

What Makes Someone French? by Craig S Smith from The New York Times (of 11 November 2005) - a much more insightful and well considered view.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Last night at around 3am (my human had looked at the clock and reminded me of the time), I kept on insisting on going under the covers, then out again, then under again a couple of time... but I know my human loves me, so he let me.

I had sliced turkey meat for breakfast (pre-packed like sandwich ham). Yum yum. Now why haven't I eaten that before?

After an interesting morning, I accepted my plight of being left home alone again.

Tonight is Monday night which means a long brush of my fur while we watch Numb3rs on TV. To recap, it is about an FBI detective and how he teams with his brother who is a mathematics professor to solve crimes using mathematics.
