Did you read the Jools Oliver interview from earlier this week? The model-turned-mom of four is married to celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. Together they’re the parents of the imaginatively named Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Buddy Bear Maurice. Jools declared, “I hate people’s opinions on names. Whatever you call your baby is your decision.”
I know scads of people who would agree with Jools. At least until they hear a name, like oh say, Buddy Bear. And I wonder if Jools would be so open-minded if Poppy came home with a best friend called Ermingard.
There I was thinking of England when the lovely Shannon alerted me to a baby name discussion taking place on The Pioneer Woman’s blog. Ree Drummond is known for her delectable recipes, along with vistas of her ranch somewhere smack in the middle of the US of A, but last week she decided to talk about her favorite names and thousands of comments continued the discussion.
