Ask The Eye, Reader Rejects Naming Her Child Vulva, How About The Name Seven You Can Bend It Like Beckham

November 28, 2012

Dear Eye View

My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, around Christmas. We thought nothing could sadden us during this happy time, but were shocked last week to hear that my husband’s mother was taken from us in an auto accident. In his grief, my husband asked that we name our daughter after his late mother. The problem is that my mother in law’s name was Vulva, and I just can’t fathom giving my child such a horrid name. I had been thinking something along the lines of Virginia or Lou Ann. I told my husband I would think about it, but he’s pressing the issue, and I need to tell him something. Am I being selfish for not wanting to name my child Vulva, even under these circumstances?


Dear Desperate

I understand your desperation. Tell your husband you feel uncomfortable naming your child after a body part and there are other wonderful names his mother would aprove. For instance, I have always liked the name Seven. It’s Mickey Mantle’s number. So not only is it a beautiful name, it is also a living tribute to Mickey and your mother- in- law. If he objects you can always use it as a middle name. You can bend it like Beckham. Hope this helps.

St James’s Palace has confirmed that other guests will include members of the defence services, representatives from Prince William’s charities while celebrities like the Beckhams are said to be among the Westminster Abbey congregation on 29 April.
