Santa Beckham


How many kids do you know by the name of Santa? Yeah, me either. I have known a Christmas or two in my life, but never Santa. I also know that there are probably not too many Santas out there in the world who are girls. Oh, sure I guess you could name your child Santa, but aren't you pretty much only giving them one opportunity in their life for a meaningful job? If they are a girl, does this mean you are going to give them hormones to grow a beard?

In the world of celebrity baby names, the fact that Victoria Beckham is considering the name Santa for her new baby with David Beckham would probably eclipse almost any other baby name. If attention is what she is seeking, Victoria has found a winner.

Of course I think this is a joke, but we are talking about a celebrity baby name here. So, anything is possible.

I like Lainey's guess of Lala. Because they name their kids after what city they have been in when conceived.

Liz said...

Tara Palmer-Tompkinson's sister. But that's the only one.

keks said...

Isn't it Santa as in Saint, not Santa Claus?

Mooshki said...

Even Santa couldn't beat Kal-El.

Borg Queen said...

Exactly @ Keks. Santa is a Female Hispanic.

Melody the First said...

I was born on Christmas Day and I'm not named Santa. Yikes.

Is the middle name Maria?

If they do the town conception thing, I wonder if they've ever done it in Compton? Normal Heights?

Mama Theresa said...

santa means holy and is the female form of santana

Middle-aged Diva said...

Both my mother and grandmother were named Santa. Sicilians.

RocketQueen said...

I'm guessing she was conceived in Santa Monica or Barbara?

I still think Jason Lee's kid's name of Pilot-Inspektor takes the cake.

Mango said...

My Sicilian grandpa had a sister named Santa. It has a different pronunciation than the Santa in Santa Claus, so it ain't no big thing.

Krab said...

I've known numerous women called Santa. It's not that weird of a name.

Beth said...

As someone noted above, Tara Palmer-Tompkinson's sister is named Santa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Montefiore

RQ beat me to that one. How about Moxie Crimefighter Jillette or Audio Science Sossamon?

Pookie said...

enty, i love you. but just b/c you've never heard a name doesn't mean it doesn't exist. 'santa' is actually common in many parts of latin america and western europe.

besides, they already have a 'cruz'...maybe they're into sticking w/ the theme?

Reese said...

I thought of the same thing Keks did; maybe she is going for "Saint". Of course, that would be rather hilarious in that family. Anything to outdo Gwenyth Paltrow on the weird baby names, eh Victoria?

I knew a 2tone skinhead chick named Santa.

Karrots, read my other comments in today's other posts--I am backing you up 100%. My frustration makes yours look like mild irritation. I am determined to keep this issue in the threads.

I did just go back a re-read, sorry kym I got confused there for a second..

linnea said...

No matter how normal or not normal her name is, she is not going to have a very normal childhood...

kympossible said...

Where did radio show go to? The one that ENTY took all that money for?

Bxrlvr said...

My mom is named Santa. It's an old Greek name, anglicized from "Santee".

Bxrlvr said...

And by the way, she usually goes by Sandy.

kympossible said...

Hey, who got their Amber Tamblyn book? What happened to the radio show! I think people donated money for that!

MoodyBlueEyes said...

i don't think it's an attention-seeking name. it's different, and not exactly what i'd expect from them but compared to others, it's not dreadful. santa maria (if that was the middle name) beckham sounds actually kind of pretty!

it may very well be a joke, though. who knows?

luuuu24 said...

Santa= female saint San(italian/spanish) or Santo/Sao (portuguese)= male saints. @Mama Theresa: Santana= Sant'Ana= Santa Ana= Saint Anne
