In the MailOnline recently was an item about Alex James, the Blur bassist turned cheesemaker.
His oldest child is called Geronimo.
He also has twins called Galileo and Artemis, & two other children, Sable & Beatrix.

How a teacher can call out the name Geronimo in class & keep a straight face... ;D

Seeing an earlier reference to the boy's name Wayne - reminded me of a relative (related through marriage) had two sons who she named Wayne and Dwayne.  ::)

Nearly 40 years ago when we were chossing our first baby's name,I liked the name Wayne,but our surname begins with a C. My husband said " no way are we giving a child the initial WC" !!!

So he's an RC .......almost as bad methinks  8)

This made me smile...

Because when I was teaching in Watford, - a few years ago now, - I had a child called Geronimo in my Class! (And he was a very nice little lad:-)
