Whacky names not just for pop stars

But then I thought, I had an auntie May, and there's June Whitfield of course, and January Jones is quite foxy, so why not. If I had been called this - well apart from I'd have probably not survived teens, that being the kind of school I went to - I'd have probably gone off to the big university and started calling myself Hawke - which for some reason reminds me of Andrew Collins' book - Heaven KNows I'm Misrable Now - in which at one point decides he's going to be known as 'Boon' - and all his mates just go along with it. As an old hippy though I'm more tolerant of such things - one of my daughters had a school mate called Jezebel, which I thought was great, her friends just called her Jez. Where was I? Oh yes - teatime......

just musing on now - there was a lad in my year at school called Brent - which I thought was the weirdest name I'd ever heard at that time - but he was the kind of lad you wouldn't fuck about with. Handy on the rugby pitch though. ANd a couple of wesyt indian lads (brothers), Davern and Everton, and though young Ev got a bit of piss taking (our school was right next to Elland Road footy ground), again you wouldn't fuck around with weither of em.
