No, we’re not talking about Scary Spice in this post, nice though her choices of Phoenix/Angel/Madison for her three daughters may be. Instead, we’re talking football yet again. It’s getting quite good around my neck of the woods, since at the moment my team are go up – and our rivals going down. However, today’s father has not played for either team, rather, he prefers to spend his time with Premier League side Sunderland – having only just moved from Manchester United.
Wes Brown was born Wesley Michael in 1979 in Manchester. Surely, a man named Wesley (although only ever referred to as Wes) would have an interesting take on naming children? Indeed he does, since with wife Leanne, he has three daughters named:
If you ever had doubts that the letter l is in fashion right now, look no further than here for proof, with each daughter possessing 2 ls apiece in their names. Certainly, they are names very similar in style – but there is still a slight breadth of choice to be had if a fourth daughter were to come along. They could go slightly vintage-nickname with Sally, or even double back to Harlow, so you have a Halle and Harlow, Lilia and Lola.
They could, just as easily, go with Sue, simply because they like the name Sue – not letting the idea of cohesive sibsets get in the way of choosing names.
Yes, this does happen.
