Baby Names Beyond Parody

We didn't quite believe it when we saw this on Kate Day's Twitter, but here it is, in the Independent. Biggles George Fittleworth Jackson-Kew. And his sister. Posie Betsy Winifred Jackson-Kew. Who have an older sister. Named Tuppence.

But of course, things are crazy in England. The paper also makes note of the marriage of Peter Wood and Kitty Fox, and please let them hyphenate their names. "Hello, Mrs. Kitty Wood-Fox!"

It should also be noted that another excellent baby shared this announcement page, and her name is Cora Dudgeon. I swoon.

I love Posie! Biggles? Poor, wee, child.

@hockeymom I know, right? You're supposed to give the boy a regular name, and then his public school friends nickname him Biggles later. At least according to Christie and Wodehouse.

They are either so old money it's mold, or dreadful parvenus.

@Vulpes They're English; they might be fourth generation parvenus.
