habemus Papam Liam. Pope makes a plea to parents to give their children traditional names

ROME - Too much about babes today, let's have some religion, lol. Do you remember time ago the Vatican said it's good to listen to Oasis. (Wil)Liam and Noel are quite traditional names, Noel even meaning Christmas birth, and both the Gallaghers care a lot about their families. Two of their children have strange names, as Lennon Gallagher, and Anais Gallagher, sounds like a perfume ^_^
Celebrities are known for giving their offspring bizarre names. And where they tread, the rest of us tend to follow.
But those who despair at names such as Brooklyn, Apple and Princess Tiaamii, now have a high-profile supporter.
The Pope has made an extraordinary plea to parents to give their children traditional first names.
Benedict XVI told a Vatican baptismal ceremony that the Christian name, is an ‘indelible sign from the Holy Spirit’ and a protects family life which is ‘being threatened’.
He said baptism with a strong name was ‘the start of spiritual life which is fulfilled through the Church’.
His comments came just hours after David and Victoria Beckham announced they were expecting their fourth child, after their three sons, Brooklyn, Cruz and Romeo (Brooklyn is a boy? ^_^).
It is unclear whether they will take his views on board, although the Pope would probably be pleased with Romeo which in Latin means ‘pilgrim to Rome’.
He would undoubtedly frown upon the names of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple, Katie Price and Peter Andre’s daughter Princess Tiaamii, and the entire brood of singer Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates - named Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches and Pixie.
Despite her middle name being Madonna, he probably did not mean Bluebell, her mom is Geri Halliwell.
The Pope added: ‘With the Sacrament of baptism the Church prays and entrusts to God a new child, parents and godparents agree to give the newly baptised a Christian education.
‘This is a great responsibility. That is why I encourage all the faithful to rediscover the beauty of baptism and being part of God’s great family, which is a testimony of great joy to one’s faith.’
Theologian Gianni Gennari told an Italian newspaper: ‘By insisting on Christian names the Pope is not violating the rights of parents but simply asking for seriousness when it comes to baptism.’
A Roman Catholic priest can refuse to baptise a child if the name given is not recognised.
Although the rule is rarely enforced, a couple from Genoa were recently refused permission to register their child as Venerdì, meaning ‘Friday’.
Vatican insiders said Pope Benedict’s plea was a response to the trend among Italian celebrities, and increasingly ordinary people, to give their children trendy names.
Formula One team director Flavio Briatore’s son, born in March last year, was christened Falco, meaning Falcon.
Others who caused a stir include Italian footballer Francesco Totti, who called his daughter Chanel (! as a bag! more than bizarre, it's ridiculous) and actress Monica Bellucci who called her daughter Deva, which in the New Age movement refers to ‘spiritual forces.’
In the UK, there was a spike in babies called Lennon, after Oasis star Liam Gallagher named his son with first wife Patsy Kensit, who is now 11, after the Beatles legend.
According to the Italian Statistical Office the most popular names are still the solidly traditional Francesco (Francis) for boys and Giulia (Julia) for girls.
The Pope’s comments have provoked an intense debate in the Italian media with Vatican sources stressing that the Pope was only referring to parents who had their children baptised.
In Italy in the 1980s, there was a brief trend for naming girls Sue Ellen after a character from the hugely successful American TV series Dallas.
