Okay, baby no name now has a name...three in fact

Naturally the surname is Winnifrith. None of this double barrelled nonsense in this household. But we have now decided on three Christian names...

The first is Joshua. We always liked Josh in the West Wing. that was the problem with that show. The lead players are all mad tax and spend, deceitful imbeciles who worship the Money tree and follow a range of false religions such as global warming but you still end up liking them. Naturally I was lobbying for Arnie (Vinick) but Joshua it is.

The second name is Patrick. That had been my first choice but the Mrs insists that she links it with Irishmen and drinking. When I get the time I shall report her to the fuzz for that since I take grave offence at this racial slur and this it is a hate crime. So Patrick is the second name.

The third Christian name is Devadason which is the surname of the Mrs. But in the part of India from where her ancestors lived one generation's Christian name can become the next's surname and vice versa. And so that tradition continues.

Joshua Patrick Devadason Winnifrith. With that decided we can now register the birth and start to claim child benefit as suckle at the nipples of the welfare state.
