Here's a bit of celeb news that will surprise exactly no one. Simon Cowell wants to name his baby Simon Cowell. In an interview with his ex-girlfriend, Terry Seymour, Simon said, "My number one choice is Simon because I like the name." ORLLY, Simon? Do tell. Up until this point the idea of naming your baby after yourself had never really struck me as particularly narcissistic. But now that he mentions it, hmm, it kind of does now.
I understand the idea of passing down a family name, especially if your family has been doing it for generations. That's lovely, and it's always a bit of a pity when people break with that tradition. But what about when it's just you and your baby? Is that weird, in this day and age?
