I have just seen the news that Peaches Geldof and her husband have a new son ,whom they have decided to call Phaedra . Anyone with a half-decent education could (and should ) have told her that Phaedra is a GIRL'S name , and that in Greek mythology she was the wife of Theseus and the sister of Ariadne !! Oh well ,that is what can happen if you name your child after your favourite band !!

Peaches' Dad didn't exactly set the bar high in the nomenclature department.

Full name, Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof, sisters, Fifi Trixibelle, and Little Trixie, half sister to Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof.
So no Jack, you're not wrong there!

Well, people have on occasion mocked my name, but let me tell you, there aren't many Continuity's at the local GPs. Had a few hash nicknames when younger though.

Apparently they knew that it was a girl's name but decided to use it anyway. None of our business, really.

"None of our business, really."

Except that they are no doubt doing it for the publicity.

Yes, publicity. Also an example of the pointless defiance which immature people seem to think is very, very brave of them.

I feel sorry for the child.

So we just ignore them?

(Easy for me 'cause I have no idea who they are to begin with.)

No need for an education when there's the internet. No that I care a jot what they call their kids, but it does seem a bit of an oversight. It's not like there aren't plenty of boys names from mythology to choose from.

Favourite joke from a few years back: the drug squad raided Bob Geldof's flat, saying they were looking for "Magic Mushrooms". To which they received the reply "She's still at school...."

I propose Gelding Boboff.

Well ,if the proud parents already KNEW that Phaedra was a girl's name ,why didn't they go the whole hog and call their son Phaedra Penelope Helen Hecate Cassandra Iphigenia Pandora (can't think of any more ) Geldof ?? They may as well !

Perhaps they have joined the politically correct group and just gone a little too far. We still folk dance with men and women (even if we have never enough men and the "women" wear a coloured band to signify which partner they are - but we understand many American dance groups have left hand and right hand lines! Problem with that is it depends whether you are looking to the top or bottom of a set!!!

I misread the title.

I thought it was "Peaches: Geldof's big mistake"

So she's followed her father's example for naming children.

I suppose "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree"

Nor Peaches neither!
