Headin' Wesht

We seem to be constantly on the road these days attending family birthday celebrations. It was Dublin two weeks ago, Cork last weekend and this weekend we are heading to Mayo for my nephew's 21st party. My parents' and my brother's house are already booked out with visitors/party goers, so I decided to treat ourselves and book into the new hotel in the town where the party is being held.

It just so happens that I will probably be ovulating within the next 24-36 hours. So if I do get preggers this month (which I seriously doubt, but sure you never know your luck), and we were to take a leaf out of the Beckhams' book and name our first born after the place s/he was conceived, then we would to saying hello to little baby Kiltimagh in nine months time. Nice ring to it, don't you think?

As it so happens, Kiltimagh's most famous son is music mogul and X Factor judge Louis Walsh. My nephew (the birthday boy) plays in a band with his nephews. These guys are in no way your usual musical fodder of the Louis Walsh stable. No crooning poof boy band stuff for these dudes. It's more Dad Rock for them, Led Zep, Hendrix, Doors, with a bit of Arctic Monkeys and Talking Heads thrown in. I'm rather proud of them really. So let's hope when they're headlining in Slane in ten years' time, they remember all their ould Aunties and Uncles.

You see you've put me in a difficult position.

On the one hand very much hope the ovulating does the trick.

On the other, might have to report you to social services for child cruelty should you use the name!!

Kiltimagh, eh? In which case, my name is Guildford and my sister is Bromley.

I bet there's some kid of 'Irish' ancestry, somewhere in California, called Kiltimagh.

Anyway, best wishes for a great party, and may your nephew and pals share the royalties with delightful Auntie Jane.

@ Xbox - John wasn't so convinced.

@ Stacey - I think unique is the polite way of putting it.

@ WFI - I can see your point.

@ May - And so he should share the royalties, the amount of crappy nappies I changed for him back in the day.
