Not a brown noser: Spurs star Gareth Bale named daughter after Alveley Village Band
TOTTENHAM Hotspur hotshot Gareth Bale has a daughter. He named her Alba Violet Bale. That’s AVB for short, like the Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Can it be that other initials are acronyms, coded tributes to others? Let’s investigate by looking at the ultimate footballing baby-name generator, David Beckham:
Brooklyn Joseph Beckham – BJB: Bond, James Bond
Romeo James Beckham – RJB: Relay Junction Box
Cruz David Beckham – CDB: Cyrano de Bergerac
Harper Seven Beckham – HSB: Head Start Bureau
Update: AVB stands for the Alveley Village Band.
