Bluebell Madonna

Isn't it sweet that Geri Haliwell has chosen to name her baby daughter after a rare woodland flower and a mono-named female celebrity. I think this is a lovely idea and really hope that it sets a trend.

Here are some other endangered British wildflowers coupled with mono-named female celebs. So there you go expectant lassies - get choosing!

  • Stinky Goosefoot Cher

  • Welsh Mudwort Twiggy

  • Sticky Catchfly Jordan

  • Jersey Cudweed Pink

  • Bedstraw Broomrape Bjork

  • Field Wormwood Lulu

Could you please remove Bedstraw Broomrape Bjork? That's my daughter's name and I don't want you spoiling her uniqueness.

Swearing Lady - do they say "I laughed my leg off" in Galway?

Loose strife Enya
Sneezewort Dido
are a couple of names doing the rounds at the Coombe and Holles Street!

I like Sneezewort Dido. It's sure to catch on.

We say, "I laughed my arse off". We go all the way in Galway. All the way... to the bottom (fnawr!)

The woman down the road has a son called Feckin' Dockleaves Bono, by the way.

So he'd be a good lad to rub up against yourself if you're a poor starving nettle-stung African.
