News came yesterday that Jamie Oliver’s wife Jools gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Now comes news of the name the kid’s been saddled with: Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver. Hopefully they’ll just go with “Buddy” or “Maurice” or even BBM because someone’s gonna get teased the first day of school if the teacher yells out, “Buddy Bear?” and the poor child has to raise his hand and declare “Here!”
But Buddy Bear might want to be thankful the Olivers didn’t stick with their flower theme… It could easily have been Buddy Bulb. The other Oliver children are the very aromatic: Petal Blossom Rainbow, 17 months, Daisy Boo Pamela, 6, and Poppy Honey Rosie, 8½. Regardless, it’s not the name that counts so much as the family is healthy and happy.
