Welcome, Firenze!

Florence Rose Endellion is the name given to David and Samantha Cameron's latest child, who was born while they were on holiday in Cornwall. This blog welcomes her, though she will have to cope with a father of increasingly dodgy political beliefs. St. Endellion has a pleasing music festival and the Endellion String Quartet is one of the best.

When thinking of the effect on children of giving them strange names I often think of the Beckhams, who called a child Brooklyn because that is where he was conceived. Shortly before they had been in their home in Sawbridgeworth......

If Florence regrets her name in later life she can reflect that her parents might have been on holiday in Mousehole.
