Naming Conventions

On Friday evening I went with Hayley to a pub some 7 or 8 miles distant for a rather delicious meal. What we hadn't bargained for was it being Yummy Mummy night, with the better part of a dozen or so kids called India, Jocasta or Ptolemy, incessantly running through the place volubly demonstrating their latest iPad or iPhone5 to each other in high-pitched yelps.

I find it strange that while some parents are quite willing to name a girl-child India, they seem curiously reluctant to name them Pakistan, Afghanistan or Tibet.
