Pink wants to name baby after whiskey

Pink has decided to name her new son James, after her favourite whiskey. Not that she’s actually given birth to the child yet, or found out what gender it is. 

The singer told Access Hollywood, “My dad’s name is James, and my brother’s name is Jason. [My husband Carey Hart and I] are both Irish, Carey’s middle name is Jason, [put James and Jason together and you get] Jameson – we like whiskey. That’s a no brainer. We’re all over the place. I’m all about meaning, and Carey feels like he had a girl’s hair cut and a girl’s name, and he doesn’t want kids to have a weird name. I have to get him on the boat for originality, so I’m working on him”.

I’m not sure Jameson is that original a name, really. If you want to be original you really need to make up a whole new word. Maybe Pink could name her child Rinthshurenterly. That sounds a bit like something you might say if you drank a lot of whiskey, so that connection is still there. Everybody’s happy.
