well agree to disagree on this one. My lad went to a private school in London, with lots of celeb mams and dads and some of their children got a real bashing, especially if mam or dad were in the news for whatever reason. Seen it here to with sheikh's kids, they do get isolated a tad.

As for shagging poker face, god cant think of anyone who finds her attractive but as for dad well um ....

I don't really understand why someone called Romeo would be bullied? Is it cause of the Romeo and Julliet connection or is there something else? Maybe it's an association that English speakers have, as to me it's just a name like any other...

yeah, I know that, but it's hardly a weird or unusual name? I mean it's not like Tigercub or Moonstone or Apple or River or whatever some people nowadays make up...it's a name that has been around for ages?

Maybe you're right. I guess I'm looking at it from the perspective of a middle-aged Brit--really need to understand how kids perceive the name. I'll ask mine (Aphrodite and Hercules).

All this talk of naming your children reminds me of that old joke.................

"Police today raided the London home of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates, and found Amphetamines and Angel Powder...........

............. but there was no sign of the other children............"
