The Holly Grail

‘IF Andrew and Rachel Flintoff had realised they would one day be famous, their names known throughout the land, would they have named their daughter Holly?

Freddie and the dreamers

It’s a nice enough name but it’s not exactly special. If Holly is to be gifted, stunning and talented, if she wants to carve out a career as an aspiring actress/model/presenter, she’ll need something that sticks in the mind and grabs the headlines.

Special people need special names – just look at Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz Beckham.

Indeed, if the Flintoffs are contemplating adding another name to their team, the Mail has a few pointers that should set them on the right path.

Researchers at the Cornwall Record Office have checked the censures of birth, marriages and deaths going back as far as the 16th century and come up with a list of 1,000 unusual names.

Put your hands together for Philadelphia Bunnyface, Cloberly Silly Woolcock, Ostrich Pockinghorn and Gentle Fudge.

Listen to Faithful Cock, Elizabeth Disco, Talent Ferret, Hobby Carew, Friday Screetch and Obedience Budge’s new single.

Turn the pages of the latest celebrity newssheet and read how Abraham Thunderwolff has just dumped Freke Dorothy Flucke Lane.

All are good names guaranteed to get little junior noticed. Although, given the nature of things, it can’t be too long before Warne is a first name and there are any number of Flintoffs at the junior model auditions…’
