Chances of me doing a Dave Gorman? ZERO!
this is scary i don't want to be part of this anymore.
It's the middle one. (I think)
I mean this:
we're a sexy lot, eh?
PS: Why do people in the UK continue to give their children British names? Doesn't it suck having to share 12 names amongst the whole nation?
you'll get derided as a middle class fucker for naming your children anything vaguely exotic.
I don't use the anglicised version of my surname, so there aren't any results for me.
If I ever have a kid, I'll probably name it Reverdy. It's a name that's been passed down through my mum's side of the family for five generations - my great-great-great-grandfather invented it (something to do with Paul Revere and the American Revolution), and it's been passed down the the first-born male every generation. But my uncle's pushing sixty now and still doesn't have any kids, and I'd hate to have it die it, it's such a unique name, and is by far the most interesting thing in my entire family tree, which is otherwise incredibly dull. Sure, the kid'll get bullied, but what the hell, he might thank me some day.
Is it REHH-vur-dee?
I like it. It's got character. It's the kind of name that a good, but not great, actor would have.
I AM THE ONE AND ONLY.
The rest look a bit rubbish, although one of them is on the academic staff at Oxford Brookes (guess which!):
the slightly rough one by the stained glass window lives in Newcastle - I'm going to be her best friend and we'll talk about Frank Lampard and Amir Khan and how much we love our mams
of course there's no-one else with MY name
i think i'm the only english one of facebook. maybe in america every second person has my name. that'll be it.
I can only imagine it's because there was some distant relative who owned lots of slaves... but it means that searching for my name brings up a lot of people in Trinidad and Jamaica.
I knew there wouldn't be any others in the UK but I thought there might be some elsewhere.
